On June 21, 1591, at the age of 23, still six years away from his priestly ordination, he died. St. Aloysius Gonzaga is a model for servant leadership. Without a lot of fanfare and expectation of recognition or fame, Aloysius quietly and humbly cared for the abandoned, vulnerable and dying.

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga (March 9, 1568 – June 21, 1591) was an Italian aristocrat who became a member of the Society of Jesus. While still a student at the Roman College, he died as a result of caring for the victims of a serious epidemic. He was beatified in 1605 and canonized in 1726.

O dear Saint Aloysius, do thou guard and defend me always, in order that, under thy protection and following thy example, I may one day be able to join with thee in seeing and praising my God forever in heaven. Amen.

Amen.

Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us St. Aloysius Gonzaga as an example of holiness. Help us to imitate the love of You that he showed throughout his life, beginning in his youth.

St. Aloysius Gonzaga, you began your journey to holiness when you were very young. As you were recovering from an illness, you turned your attention to prayer and study of the saints. From then on, you grew in devotion to God.

Please bring my petitions before the throne of God!

You were committed to chastity, and you longed to serve God as a missionary. Though you were still young, you did all you could to prepare yourself for a life of service to God.

Pray for me, that I may always seek to serve God in my life. Pray that I may do all I can to serve God in whatever ways He calls me to.

Please also pray for (mention your intentions here).

St. Aloysius Gonzaga, pray for us!

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.


ADVANTAGES OF FIBERGLASS VS. CONCRETE OUTDOOR STATUES :



• WEIGHT - Fiberglass is light. Even the largest sizes can be easily carried by one or two people. Concrete requires a crane for placement at the site for the larger sizes.



• SHIPPING - Fiberglass is light. It costs considerably less to ship than concrete statues.



• PRECISE - Fiberglass pours as a liquid and therefore reflects all the fine details of the mold. Concrete is thick and grainy and does not penetrate into the fine details of the mold well.



• STRENGTH - Fiberglass is strong. It is reinforced and is the same material used to make boat hulls which withstand shock and the elements without breaking. Although concrete is durable for outdoors, it will break into pieces if hit or knocked over.



• COST - Fiberglass is a much less expensive medium for outdoor statues than is concrete.



• DURABILITY - Fiberglass will not degrade, erode or crumble over time in the elements like concrete tends to do.



• AVAILABILITY - Concrete statues take longer to prep, produce, cure and finish, where the fiberglass process allows for quicker turnaround.



WHAT SETS IMAGES OF HEAVEN FIBERGLASS STATUES APART?



• FACES - Not afraid to show close-up highly detailed photos of our statue faces. Proprietary painting and finishing techniques used in producing stunning life-like faces and eyes.



• WORKSHOP - Not mass produced or imported from China, South Korea or Hong Kong. All statues individually hand crafted, sanded, sealed and painted in-house at the time of order by our own artisans.



• EXCLUSIVE - Available only through our website, not catalogs or stores.



• COLORIZATION -Painted in a wide variety of lovely pastels and soft tones, not harsh primary colors.



• TECHNIQUE - Natural color versions hand painted with fine brushes and artist pencils for sharp lines of demarcation, not air brushed with blurred overlapping colors.



• PRODUCTION - Cast and embellished on site with poly resin and premium fiberglass webbing.
