Christ's love compels...

 For Christ's love compels us... II Cor 5:14a

"It is said of St Aloysius Gonzaga that he used to receive Communion once a week and that he was accustomed to spend three days in preparation before it and three days in thanksgiving after it.  ... By this means, the angelic youth was enabled to walk continually with God; one Communion was the preparation for another; thus, he constantly advanced in purity of heart and in love for Jesus Christ."

Fr Michael Muller, CSSR
The Blessed Eucharist, Our Greatest Treasure

 St Aloysius Gonzaga
Italy ~ 1568-1591
Jesuit seminarian, Patron of Youth
FEAST DAY - June 21 

"I confess that I am bewildered and lose myself at the thought of Divine Goodness, a sea without shore and fathomless, of God who calls me to an eternal rest after such short and tiny labors - summons and calls me to heaven, to that supreme Good..."  ~ St Aloysius

St. Aloysius spent a lot of time in prayer especially before the
Blessed Sacrament.  So much so that when it came time to make a
painting of him it was decided to make it of him kneeling in adoration
before of our Lord Jesus since this reflected best of who he was.

St Aloysius, pray for us!
