St. Aloysius is considered the patron saint of youth. His pure heart and dedication to serving those in need is an example for all, especially the young, for he had possessed this love for Christ at an early age and lived a short pious-filled life.
Prayer to Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, Patron of Youth
Dear Christian youth, you were a faithful follower of Christ in the Society of Jesus. You steadily strove for perfection while generously serving the plague-stricken. Help our youth today who are faced with a plague of false cults and false gods. Show them how to harness their energies and to use them for their own and others' fulfillment—which will redound to the greater glory of God. Amen.
