Saint-Alexius.jpgPrecious Lord, Saint Alexius ran away from home disguised as a beggar in order to pursue his vocation.  Later, he returned as a beggar, keeping his true identity hidden, but his parents who were kind to the needy invited him in.  For seventeen years they let him live in a corner under their stairs, seeing him only as a homeless man.  There, he prayed and taught the Faith to children.  I ask him to intercede for the homeless.  Lead them to ministries and organizations that will supply their needs and draw out the gifts they can offer.  O Jesus, fill my heart with Your kindness toward them.  Saint Alexius, pray for us.  Amen.
