January 31: Feast of St. John Bosco

Here we see Don Bosco still standing with his kids in Torino. If you ever find youself in Turin to see the Holy Shroud, be sure to walk over to his old headquarters to check it all out (about a fifteen minute walk from the cathedral).

Don Bosco build a veritalbe little town there for his kids. You can see the basilica there with his incorrupt body (!) as well as his former rooms and chapel. There's even a little book shop there, still a giant school and even a little bar to have lunch in!
