Prayer to Saint A. Gonzaga V. Saint Aloysius, adorned with angelic virtues,

R. I, thy most unworthy client, * commend to thee most earnestly * the chastity of my mind and body. 

V. I beseech thee, for the sake of thine angelic purity,

R. To commend me to the immaculate Lamb, * Christ Jesus (), * and to His most holy Mother, * the Virgin of virgins; * and to protect me from every grievous sin.

V. O most tender and gracious saint,

R. Permit me not to defile myself by any spot of impurity; * nay, when thou seest me in temptation * or in the danger of sin, * banish far from my heart * every unclean thought and desire.

V. Awaken in me the thought of eternity and of Jesus (☨) crucified;

R. imprint deeply in my heart * a lively sense of the holy fear of God; * set me on fire with the love of God; * grant me the grace to imitate thee on earth * that I may worthily enjoy the possession of God * in heaven with thee. * Amen.

Marian Prayer of Saint A. Gonzaga

V. O Holy Mary, my Mother,

R. Into thy blessed trust and custody, * and into the care of thy mercy * I this day, every day, * and in the hour of my death, * commend my soul and my body. * To thee I commit all my anxieties and miseries, my life and the end of my life, * that by thy most holy intercession * and by thy merits * all my actions may be directed and disposed * according to thy will * and that of thy Son. Amen.

Novena Prayer V.

O most innocent and pure St Aloysius Gonzaga, by thy illustrious merits we beseech thy gracious intercession before the throne of Almighty God, that He may grant us:

(Pause and state your intentions)

V. If it be for the greater glory of God and our sanctification.

R.  Amen. 

V. Let us pray. O God, the Giver of all heavenly gifts, who in the angelic youth, Aloysius, didst join wondrous innocence with equal penance: be entreated by his merits and his prayers and grant unto us who have not followed him in his innocence the grace to imitate him in his penance. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R.  Amen. 

V. In the Name (✠) of the Father…

R. Amen
