THE HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Don Bosco was born on 16 August 1815, at Becchi, Italy, in a poor peasant family. He lost his father at the age of two. His God-fearing mother brought him up with great care, instilling in him religious and human value.
A GREAT DREAMER
At the age of nine Don Bosco had a dream, in which Jesus and Mother Marry appeared to him and gave him his message: “With meekness and charity you will conquer thesefriends. Make yourself humble, strong and robust.” The dream was about the method of education the young, especially the difficult ones through reason, religion, and loving-kindness.
To make his dream come true, braving poverty and many other hurdles, he became a priest and dedicated his life completely for the education of the young, especially the poor and marginalized.
He spent his entire life working for under-privileged young people. To continue his work he founded a society which today is known all over the world as the “Salesians of Don Bosco” or the “Don Bosco Society”.
