Jesus said: "Blessed are the poor in spirit because theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven."
And that has been one of the most used phrases to describe the life of Saint Alejo, the humble man who gave his heart to Christ and who renounced material goods to live a life of dedication and prayer.
The teaching of the life of Saint Alejo it is that to obtain humility humiliations are needed and that pride is a sin, dedication to good works is needed to fight against it.
Who was Saint Alejo? Patron of beggars and the sick
Saint Alejo He was the son of a rich Roman senator, so his parents educated him and always taught him the importance of faith and humility in the human being.
They always instilled in him the importance of helping those in need, since those gestures become treasures for heaven. That is why Alejo from a very young age distributed among the needy how much money he got, since he always had great faith that it brought him many blessings from God.
In his youth, he realized that living in the middle of a very rich family and in a worldly society brought many dangers to his soul, so he fled the house, dressed as a beggar and went to Syria, a place where that remained for 17 years dedicated to adoration and penance.
Saint Alejo begged for himself and for others in great need and people began to call him "the man of God", because he also preached the virtue of poverty and humility.
But one day, a very spiritual person told people that this poor beggar was the son of a rich family, and he fled Syria for fear of being honored and returned to Rome.
Finally he decided to return to his parents' house to ask for a trade, and they did not realize that this beggar was his son.
So, in his own home, he performed the most humiliating jobs as a servant, and thus he spent another 17 years sleeping under a ladder, and every night raising prayers and dedicating his humiliations for sinners.
Already dying due to the forced labor he was doing, he sent for his parents to his place under the stairs, and told them that he was their son, that out of penance he had chosen that way of life. The two old men hugged him crying and helped him to die in peace.
Miracles of the Saint
After Alejo's death, many people learned about his story of humility and penance and began to entrust themselves to him. Several commented that they had seen real miracles after asking for the help of the man of God.
Thus, in Rome they built a temple for him and in the Eastern Church, especially in Syria, they were very devoted to him.
This is how people prayed to him, recounting both the life and the sacrifice of faith of the saint:
Oh glory of the Roman nobility and true lover of the poverty and shame of Christ! Oh blessed Alejo! that, in the prime of your youth, to obey the Lord's inspiration, you left your wife and left your parents' house like another Abraham, and having distributed what you took with the poor, you lived as a poor man and a beggar for so many years unknown and despised among men.
You were very gifted and favored by the Virgin Mary, our Queen and Lady, and fleeing from the praises of men, you returned by instinct of God to the house of your parents that by their will you had left, to give us an example of humility and patience. , of suffering and perseverance, and to triumph over you and the world with such a new and glorious kind of victory.
