Pope's Message for all Youth on WYD 2023
MEET 1 of THE PATRON SAINTS of WORLD YOUTH DAY
John was born in 1815 in Becchi, Italy and is known for founding the Salesian Society.
In 1841 he was ordained a priest. He started a school for poor boys, many of whom he met when he visited their parents in prison as part of his priestly work. He taught them about music and how to make shoes, clothes, and books. John also taught the boys about God’s love for them, so when they grew up the boys lived good lives. He died January 31 and was canonized in 1934.
