I first encountered St. John Bosco as a second- or third-grader, in one of the old Catholic readers that even then were going out of fashion. We read that he used juggling and acrobatic feats as a way to attract the attention of street children so that he could share Jesus with them. I was intrigued by the story of a Saint who knew how to have fun, and who made evangelization fun! But that is really all I knew about him up until 2019, if I thought of him at all.

Great reflection! I’ve enjoyed learning more about St. John Bosco this year as well!
