The remarkable life, challenging example of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz – Catholic World Report

Father Al, as he was called by many, was a tireless man, a profoundly holy and hard-working priest dedicated to serving the poor and marginalized. A native of Washington, D.C., he spent his priestly life in South Korea following the Korean War, and in the Philippines and Mexico, founding and reforming orphanages, hospitals, hospices, clinics, and schools. He also founded the Sisters of Mary, a religious order dedicated to the sickest and poorest. Even when he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Father Al continued his tireless work, and the ripple effects of his ministry continue to this day, and will surely reach far beyond. Father Al’s story is a profound one that challenges us to ask ourselves: What am I doing with my life? How can I better live the gospel every day?
