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

Matthew 18:2-4;10: “He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.’ “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

______________________

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, renowned for his profound commitment to purity and piety from a young age, devoted himself to the service of God and the well-being of others, particularly the young. Despite the privileges of his noble birth, he chose a path of humility and dedication to the less fortunate, especially children and the sick. His deep love for Christ inspired him to view every child as a reflection of God’s innocence and purity. He tirelessly worked to educate and care for the youth, providing them with spiritual guidance and protection. His life testifies to the importance of nurturing and safeguarding the younger generation, recognizing their potential to shape the future of the Church and the world.

Reflect on how we can contribute to the protection and development of children and youth in our own lives. Consider ways to support and mentor the young, providing them with a foundation of faith, love, and security. Just as Saint Aloysius saw the face of Christ in every child, let us strive to see and nurture the divine potential in each young person we encounter.
