Celebrate the feast of St. John Bosco, the patron saint of schoolchildren and incarcerated juveniles, with dinner and a movie.
by Ryan Langr
St. John Bosco is a great saint for Peanut Butter & Grace and for family catechesis in general because a large part of his mission was teaching children, especially children whom society had given up or saw no value. He was also the founder of the Salesians. For a celebration of his Jan. 31 feast day, make this delicious skillet lasagna, and then have the whole family watch St. John Bosco: Mission to Love.
O glorious St. John Bosco, who in order to lead young people to the feet of the Divine Master and to mould them in the light of faith and Christian morality did heroically sacrifice yourself to the very end of your life and set up a proper religious institute destined to endure and to bring to the farthest boundaries of the earth your glorious work, obtain also for us from Our Lord a holy love for young people who are exposed to so many seductions in order that we may generously spend ourselves in supporting them against the snares of the devil, in keeping them safe from the dangers of the world, and in guiding them, pure and holy, in the path that leads to God. Amen.
… St. John Bosco, Pray for Us …
