St John Bosco, Confessor - click for link

Today is the Feast of St John Bosco (1815-1888), a man who dedicated his life to the service of abandoned young people. St John Bosco was favoured by God with many prophetic dreams that helped his boys to reflect seriously on the last things, to avoid sins and to be prepared by regular confessions and receiving the Sacraments. St John founded the Salesian Order much needed in the poverty of the city of Turin, we now consider to be one of the most prosperous in the modern world.
