Saint John Bosco and Saint Dominic Savio
Saint John Bosco and Saint Dominic Savio
Saint John Bosco and Saint Dominic Savio
by Catherine Beebe

An enthralling story of the great modern apostle of youth, Saint John Bosco, and his best-loved pupil who became a saint, Dominic Savio. Blessed with tremendous natural and supernatural gifts, including a wonderful sense of humor, Saint John Bosco overcame overwhelming obstacles to help deprived children find a better life.

Juggler, magician, acrobat, tailor, teacher and writer--John Bosco became all of these in his efforts to lead boys and girls to God. A prayer was the price of admission to his shows; a friendly contest to match skill or strength was his answer to the hoodlums who laughed at him. As a priest he was known as Don Bosco and built churches and schools.

Don Bosco's schools were cheerful places where the school spirit ran high. This story of Saint John Bosco and his pupil, Saint Dominic Savio, will appeal to the young readers of today.

The Life of Saint Dominic Savio
The Life of Dominic Savio
by St John Bosco

"The Life of Dominic Savio" has often been called Don Bosco's best work. However, the success of the book is to be found first in the striking personality of the subject and secondly in the author's keen penetration of his boyhood holiness. Being the lad's confessor, Don Bosco was able to probe the boy's soul to its depths; as an experienced educator he could analyze the inner workings of his mind and heart. Besides this, there was such a bond of sympathy linking both author and subject in a common holiness that the reader is forced to admit, "This is the life of a saint written by a saint!"
