Prayer to St Aloysius Gonzaga
O BLESSED Aloysius, adorned with angelic virtues, I, thy most unworthy suppliant, recommend specially to thee the chastity of my soul and body, praying thee by thy angelic purity to plead for me with JESUS CHRIST, the Immaculate Lamb, and his most Holy Mother, Virgin of virgins, that they would vouchsafe to keep me from all grievous sin. Never suffer me to be denied with any stain of fleshly sin; but when thou dost see me in temptation, or in danger of falling, then remove far from my mind all bad thoughts and unclean desires, and awaken in me the memory of eternity to come and of JESUS crucified ; impress deeply in my heart a sense of the holy fear of GOD; and, kindling in me the fire of divine love, enable me so to follow thy footsteps here on earth that in heaven I may be made worthy to enjoy with thee the vision of our GOD for ever. Amen. PATER, Ave.
