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


#1

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.
