Free Saint Bosco printable for children by age group.

From Saint of the Day: John Bosco educated the whole person—body and soul united. He believed that Christ’s love and our faith in that love should pervade everything we do—work, study, play. For John Bosco, being a Christian was a full-time effort, not a once-a-week, Mass-on-Sunday experience. It is searching and finding God and Jesus in everything we do, letting their love lead us. Yet, John realized the importance of job-training and the self-worth and pride that comes with talent and ability so he trained his students in the trade crafts, too.

And who could forget little Grigio, who guided Saint Bosco away from danger on more than one ocassion. Okay, maybe he wasn't so little, especially in this painting - he looks more like a wolf.
