Today is the Feast of St. John Bosco (Don Bosco). He was a remarkable man. In honor of his feast, here is an instrumental rendition of Friend of the Young and the Poor, a song by Fr. Stephen Schenck, SDB.
You were the light in the dark for the young who could not see
And you were a spark for the young to become all they could be
Help us all come to be all that God calls us to be
We will send the message
We will be the witnesses that you, Don Bosco, are the friend of the young and the poor
Lead us safely through the storm to the heavenly shore
