Precious 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.
