At a young age, John was captivated by circus performers and realized that if he could learn tricks, he could captivate others. He had a heart for the poor boys in the streets and used magic tricks to get their attention. He used to perform a trick where he turned three separate ropes into a single rope to illustrate the mystery of the Blessed Trinity. After each show he would recite a homily. He eventually founded the Salesians of Don Bosco, whose main focus is the care and education of children.
Using magic tricks to evangelize… we love St. John Bosco’s creativity!
St. John Bosco, pray for us!
