A saint's letter to his mother, knowing he will die


Saint Aloysius Gonzaga went out to help the sick during the plague and then, not surprisingly, got it himself. Then he died. He was 23. He wrote a letter to his mother when he was dying, a time when people will leave off all pretence, a letter still read and which is even used in the office.
