Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Saint of the Week

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Aloysius Gonzaga, Religious

The first words Saint Aloysius spoke as a child were the names of Jesus and Mary. His father planned for him to enter the military, but he wanted to enter religious life and did so early in life. He taught religious education to the poor in the town where his parents lived in Italy, and eventually became a Jesuit. He served the ill during a plague, in a hospital in Milan, and died very young, only 23 years old.
