St John Bosco grew up in a poor Italian farm family. To earn extra money, he presented magic shows to children with a promise that they pray with him before and after the show. He devoted his spare time to finding poor children in the city slum, entertained them with stories and tricks and found them jobs. He knew it was important for adults to take responsibility for wayward children. He founded the Salesians of Don Bosco, an order of priests who educated boys. To aid abandoned girls, he founded the Daughters of Mary, Help for Christians. He was the founder of the Union of Co-operator Salesians for lay people. He also believed greatly in the power of Holy Communion. His most famous quote was ‘young people must know they are loved’.
Prayer: Saint John Bosco, as you saw Jesus in the face of every child, help me show kindness to the strangers I meet. Amen
