The Patron Saint Of Young People

Today is a special feast day for those like Blessed John Paul II, who had a special place for young people in his heart. St. John Bosco, the saint we celebrate today, died in 1888 and was canonized in 1934 as the patron saint of young people. Blessed John Paul II especially admired the saint’s tireless efforts to educate and form young men, and he also repeated his words: “Young people should not only be loved, but should also know that they are loved.”

St. John Bosco, pray for us today on your feast, that our young people might know that they are loved.
