John Bosco

Saint John Bosco (born Giovanni Melchiorre Bosco, also called Don Bosco; 16 August 1815 – 31 January 1888) was an Italian Catholic priest and educator, who put into practice the dogma of his religion, employing teaching methods based on love rather than punishment. He placed his works under the protection of Francis de Sales, thus his followers styled themselves the Salesian Society.Don Bosco succeeded in establishing a network of centres to carry on his work. In recognition of his work with disadvantaged youth, he was canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1934.
