Overview

This book tells the inspiring story of St. Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-1591), a prince of the Holy Roman Empire who renounced his titles and wealth to serve God and the Church as a member of the Society of Jesus. While he lived a short life and is honored as the patron saint of youth, his powerful story invites all Christians to reflect on how they are living their unique vocation and commitment to a life of witness and discipleship. Using Aloysius's own letters, spiritual reflections, and other documents, this book offers unparalleled insights into his spiritual life and personality.

Woven together with the story of Saint Aloysius are portraits of other Jesuits and Reformation-era saints, as well as a history of the Society of Jesus and how the story of this great saint played an important part in the Jesuit's educational apostolate. For those interested in Jesuit history, or the Reformation, or simply someone who wants to learn more about this appealing saint, this book offers a unique perspective on an important period of Church history and what it means to pursue God's will without counting the cost.
