Saint John Bosco - (1815-1888).
As he grew older, John began to think of becoming a priest, but poverty and lack of education made this seem impossible. After his ordination in 1841, he became assistant to the chaplain of an orphanage at Valocco, on the outskirts of Turin. For a long time Don Bosco had considered founding an Order to carry on his work.
