About the Author

St. John Bosco was born in 1815 in Becchi, Italy. Prompted by the dreams of his youth to bring others toward virtue and away from vice, John eventually became a priest and began taking in orphans at a rented shed in 1846. Famous for his dedication to the well-being of street children, juvenile delinquents, and youth at a disadvantage, he believed in teaching through love rather than by punishment. Before his death on the thirty-first of January, 1888, he founded the Salesian Order and also composed The Life of St. Joseph Cafasso. John Bosco was canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1934, and his feast day is celebrated on January 31st.
