John Bosco was born in Italy in 1815. As a young boy he learned to juggle and do magic tricks. The children in his village enjoyed watching him perform. As John entertained them, he would have the children say the Rosary if they wanted to see more of his performance.
After becoming a priest in 1841, John Bosco taught catechism lessons to boys. He then began opening schools for boys, and he founded a religious order known as the Salesians to continue this important work of teaching. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of St. John Bosco, who devoted his life to teaching others about God.
