This sixteenth century Jesuit died as a result of his dedicated care of plague victims. Thus he may be invoked for all who care for others in this time of pandemic, especially the Jesuits in India, some of whom have died in the course of their devoted care.

We also pray for the parish of St Aloysius Gonzaga in Oxford, in the care of the Oratorians. May they be blessed in merit and in number. St Aloysius pray for us, and may God bless you this day.
