Sant'ALESSIO (? - 412) in Rome, confessor. Born in a Roman patrician family, according to tradition, the night before the wedding, he communicated to the girlfriend the pronounced vow of chastity, and she adhered and supported her choice, allowing her to leave the following day, leaving all the ease, at Edessa's turn. He lived here for 17 years as a beggar, destined to the poor as much as she was raised during the day. When he returned to Rome at his father's house, he was not recognized and lived for another 17 years with charity as a beggar; When he heard death approaching, he wrote his memoirs on a sheet of paper, and when he finally reunited with God, he did not let the script go, except in the hands of the Pope, who could read the steps of his holy life to his relatives. The story of Sant'Alessio is dear to the popular classes, affectionate subject of many traditional tales and songs. The commemoration in the press is celebrated on July 30, the Roman Martirology of 2001 sets liturgical memory on July 17, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth to heaven). Colored Etching, Italy 1886
