Life and spiritual and educational legacy of the Founder of the Salesians.
The inspiring account of a poor boy from Piedmont who discovered his vocation to look after the street urchins of nineteenth-century Turin, going on to found one of the Church’s most famous religious orders for the care of youngsters. Defamed, deemed ‘mad’, and shot at, Fr Bosco’s complete faith in the Holy Spirit guided him through the greatest obstacles, while nurturing in him his abiding love and respect for children and the poor. Before his death in 1889 many already considered him a saint. By Jennifer Moorcroft.
