As a boy, the fun-loving John Bosco would juggle and do magic tricks for the other children. Having captured their attention, he would then lead them in the rosary or share a sermon he'd heard. Later in life, the holy priest ministered tirelessly to children, especially troubled boys. He gathered them for prayer, play and learning. Today, members of his order, the Salesians, continue to serve young people all over the world.
Feast Day: January 31
