St. Aloysius Gonzaga was a young Jesuit. He had many health issues, including kidney and skin diseases. When a plague broke out in Rome in 1591, he volunteered to care for the sick, even though he found the work difficult. He eventually died from the plague.
St. Aloysius is the patron saint of young Christians, Jesuit scholastics, the blind, and those with AIDS and their caregivers. His feast day is June 21.
