Quotes on the Feast of St. John Bosco

"Every education teaches a philosophy; if not by dogma then by suggestion, by implication, by atmosphere. Every part of that education has a connection with every other part. If it does not all combine to convey some general view of life, it is not education at all." 
~~ G.K. Chesterton, 
The Common Man (thanks to Saint of the Day)

"There are plenty of ways to practice mortification! Just patiently endure cold, heat, sickness, troubles, people, happenings, and so forth."
~~ St. John Bosco

"Enjoy yourself as much as you like --  if only you keep from sin."
~~ St. John Bosco

I love St. John Bosco.
I especially appreciated reading his counsel for raising boys.
He was a wise and holy man.
It is a great evening to watch a movie about his life!

Thank you for the quotes!
