St. John Bosco

Today is the feast of St. John Bosco, founder of the Salesian priests.  We know that here New Rochelle, the Salesians have a wonderful high school for boys.

He began his work with indigent boys in Turin, Italy.  Not only did he bring them together for spiritual and communal activities but he also began training classes for them at night so they could eventually get work. His work with these homeless boys grew from 6 to 600 within five years.  Today, the Salesians have schools all over the world.  Let us pray with them that God will bless their work with young men as they try to not only educate them but also to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ.
