As a boy, John Bosco would juggle and do magic tricks for his buddies. Having captured their attention, he used the opportunity to share a sermon he had heard at Mass! That story represents well the holy priest who dedicated his life to helping young people, especially troubled boys. When others pleaded with John Bosco to pace his efforts, he responded, "First tell the devil to rest, and then I'll rest too." Today, members of St. John Bosco's order, the Salesians, continue to serve young people all over the world.
