Saint John Bosco

January 31

Saint John BoscoSweet Savior, Saint John Bosco had a powerful love and tender heart for youth.  I lift up to You the children and teenagers in my life.  Protect them; lead them away from the temptations of the world and hold them tight in Your arms. When Saint John Bosco was a boy, he performed circus tricks to draw in the neighborhood children, and then he shared the homily he’d heard at Mass.  Help the youth in my family and church become powerful evangelists to their peers.  Bless those who have been gifted with a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, and help them say yes to this call.  Saint John Bosco, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint John Bosco

It is important that you choose your career with care, so that you may really follow the vocation that God has destined for you. No day should pass without some prayer to this end. Often repeat with Saint Paul: ‘Lord, what will you have me do?’ >>

Do good while you still have time. >>

The principal trap which the devil sets for the young people is idleness. This is the fatal source of all evil. >>

This was the method that Jesus used with the apostles. He put up with their ignorance and roughness and even their infidelity. He treated sinners with a kindness and affection that caused some to be shocked, others to be scandalized, and still others to hope for God’s mercy. And so he bade us to be gentle and humble of heart. >>

Visits to the Blessed Sacrament are powerful and indispensable means of overcoming attacks of the devil. Make frequent visits to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and the devil will be powerless against you. >>

Many people [in authority] oppose us, persecute us, and would like even to destroy us, but we must be patient. As long as their commands are not against our conscience, let us obey them, but when the case is otherwise, let us uphold the rights of God and of the Church, for those are superior to all earthly authority. >>
