St. John Bosco's Feast Day and My Dad's Induction to Hall of Fame!

St. John Bosco's feast day is today, January 31.  In the short paragraph HERE about John Bosco's life it states that,"to ensure the continuation of his work, St.  John Bosco founded a religious congregation named in honor of one of his favorite saints, St Francis de Sales.   This holy saint died in 1888, but today John Bosco's Salesians continue his work all over the world.

I love learning more about this Saint, especially since my father is a graduate of one of the schools that was inspired by John Bosco's life and by the religious congregation that Don (Don = a traditional Italian honorific for a priest) Bosco founded!  I think that's a cool connection to have to a man who later became a Saint! :) 

In 2011, my Dad was inducted into Salesian High School's Hall of Fame and you can read my post about this great honor and trip with my parents HERE.

Patty over at Reasons for Chocolate made this traditional Italian dessert in honor of Saint John Bosco: Double Chocolate Walnut Biscotti.  Mmmmm...I might just have to try these out!

Saint John Bosco, pray for us!
