The Feast of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, S.J.
is today. There is information on him here.
It is also the feast of St. John Rigby, Martyr. I must add a note to the little biography at the link: when the saint stated, "I am a bachelor; and more than that I am a maid", it is, in all probablity not his job as a servant that he was referring to by that second statement. "Maid" or "maiden" was the common term for "virgin" , so he was saying that not only was he not married, but he had kept his virginity.
