St John Bosco

31Jan13

Saint John Bosco was born near Castelnuovo in the diocese of Turin in 1815.  His early years were most difficult and so, once ordained to the priesthood, he dedicated himself to the education of the young, founding congregations that would instruct youth in both arts and the Christian life.  He also composed pamphlets for the support and defence of religion.  Saint John died in 1888.  For a more in depth story of his amazing life see http://www.ewtn.com/saintsHoly/saints/J/stjohnbosco.asp
