Giovanni (John) Bosco is only a toddler when his father dies leaving a void too big to be filled. Brimming with intelligence and energy. Giovanni as a child is a natural leader. He loves to study but he is hindered by Antonio his half brother who forces him to work in the fields. Then comes a providential encounter with Don Colosso – a priest who takes him to study and tells him he should always pursue his dreams. And his greatest dream is to help other boys like himself. After Don Colosso s death Giovanni decides to enter the seminary. When he becomes a priest his mission begins in Turin where he opens an Oratory a house for young inmates child laborers orphans and vagabonds. In no time at all the number of boys attending the Oratory increases. But some people consider the place a nuisance and they become increasingly suspicious of Don Bosco s remarkable success. His mission is challenged by constant threats and obstacles yet God s grace helps him to face and overcome all these. Don Bosco s life is indeed a mission to love others.
