O Saint Aloysius, adorned with angelical virtues, although I am thy unworthy servant, I commend to thee most earnestly the chastity of my soul and body. I pray thee, by thy angelical purity, to commend me to the Immaculate Lamb, Jesus Christ, and to His most Holy Mother, the Virgin of virgins. Preserve me from every grievous sin. Permit me not to defile myself by any spot of impurity; and whenever thou seest me in temptation or danger of sin, banish far from my heart every impure thought and affection. Awaken in me the thought of eternity and of Jesus Crucified; imprint deeply in my heart a lively sentiment of the holy fear of God. Inflame me with divine love, and grant me the grace that by imitating thee on earth, I may merit to enjoy God with thee in heaven. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.
