Saint John Bosco

  1. 1. Ana Gaby Maldonado<br />4th grade <br />SAINT JOHN BOSCO<br />
  2. 2. ST. JOHN BOSO<br />Born of poor parents in a little cabin at Becchi, a hill-side hamlet near Castelnuovo, Piedmont, Italy, August 16, 1815; died January 31, 1888; declared Venerable by Pius X, July 21, 1907.<br />In 1835 he entered the seminary at Chieri and after six years of study was ordained priest on the eve of Trinity Sunday by Archbishop Franzoni of Turin.<br />
  3. 3. When he was little more than two years old his father died, leaving the support of three boys to the mother, Margaret Bosco<br />At the age of nine he had a very mysterious dream that would change his life forever. Both he and his mother understood the real meaning of that dream and so Margarita would later bear many sacrifices so that John&apos;s dream of becoming a priest would be fulfilled.<br />
  4. 4. John&apos;s early years were spent as a shepherd and he received his first instruction at the hands of the parish priest<br />In 1835 he entered the seminary at Chieri and after six years of study was ordained priest on the eve of Trinity Sunday by Archbishop Franzoni of Turin.<br />
  5. 5. Leaving the seminary, Don Bosco went to Turin where he entered zealously upon his priestly labors.<br />  It was here that an incident occurred which opened up to him the real field of effort of his afterlife. One of his duties was to accompany Don Cafasso upon his visits to the prisons of the city, and the condition of the children confined in these places, abandoned to the most evil influences, and with little before them but the gallows, made such a indelible impression upon his mind that he resolved to devote his life to the rescue of these unfortunate outcasts.<br />
