    Saint John Bosco was born in Turin, Italy in 1815 and spent much of his 73 year life in that city as a parish priest. His principal apostolate was among poor working boys to unite them with the spiritual life. His insistance that boys in his care learn a trade made him a pioneer in modern vocational training. In later years, he founded the Salesian Order to carry on the work of his life among young people.      

         St. John Bosco is the patron saint of Catholic editors and youth. Pope Pius XI, who knew him as a young priest, canonized him in 1934. His feast day is January 31.
