St. Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-1591) to his mother prior to his death

"...I write all this with the one desire that you and all my family may consider my departure a joy and favour and that you especially may speed with a mother's blessing my passage across the waters till I reach the shore to which all hopes belong. I write the more willingly because I have no clearer way of expressing the love and respect I owe you as your son."
