Prayers offered at the Memorial Mass of St Alyosius
Born in the castle of Castiglione, March 9, 1568; died June 21, 1591.
O GOD, GIVER OF HEAVENLY GIFTS,
WHO IN SAINT ALOYSIUS GONZAGA
JOINED PENITENCE TO A WONDERFUL INNOCENCE OF LIFE,
GRANT, THROUGH HIS MERITS AND INTERCESSION,
THAT, THOUGH WE HAVE FAILED TO FOLLOW HIM IN INNOCENCE,
WE MAY IMITATE HIM IN PENITENCE.
GRANT US, O LORD,
THAT BY THE EXAMPLE OF SAINT ALOYSIUS,
WE MAY TAKE OUR PLACE AT THE HEAVENLY BANQUET,
CLOTHED IN OUR WEDDING GARMENT,
SO THAT, BY PARTICIPATION IN THIS MYSTERY,
WE MAY POSSESS THE RICHES OF YOUR GRACE.
BRING US, WHO HAVE BEEN FED
WITH THE FOOD OF ANGELS, O LORD,
TO SERVE YOU IN PURITY OF LIFE,
AND FOLLOWING THE EXAMPLE OF SAINT ALOYSIUS,
WHOM WE HONOR TIODAY,
MAY WE PERSEVERE IN CONSTANT THANKSGIVING.
Prayer for Saint Aloysius or for anyone else that you want to offer it for!
Volume 26 – June 27, 1929
Having received Holy Communion, I was offering my Holy Communion for the glory of
Saint Aloysius (__________), and I offered It, as a present for him/her,
everything that Our Lord had done in His Divine Will with His mind,
with His words, His works and His steps, for the accidental glory of
Saint Aloysius (___________) on this his/her feast day.
Now, while I was doing this, my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior,
“My daughter, a more beautiful present you could not give
to dear Saint Aloysius (_____________) on the day of his feast.
As you were offering your Holy Communion and all My Acts done in My Divine Will,
so many suns were formed for as many Acts as I (Jesus) did in the Divine Will while being on earth;
and these suns invested Saint Aloysius (______________),
in such a way that he/she received so much accidental glory from the earth,
that he/she could not receive more.
Only the offerings of Acts done in My Most Holy Divine Will have the virtue
of forming their suns, because, containing the Fullness of Light,
it is no wonder that the Divine Will converts into suns the human acts done in the Divine Will.”
