Scriptural Reading, Life, Examples & Legacies (Part 4)

Society of Jesus Celebrates the Feast of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, SJ - Jesuits.org

Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

______________________

Saint Aloysius is often remembered for his extraordinary purity and innocence. He guarded his heart and mind against all that could defile his soul. Despite being surrounded by the temptations of a wealthy and luxurious life, he maintained a steadfast commitment to chastity and virtue. His dedication to purity was supported by his strong prayer life and frequent reception of the sacraments. Reflect on the importance of purity in your own life and the ways you can protect and nurture it through prayer, sacramental life, and avoiding occasions of sin.
