Product Description

Pre-order, available April, 2021.

“The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”,
goes the old saying. This has rarely been so true
as in the case of Mamma Margherita Bosco,
mother of the great apostle of youth, Saint John

Partly using material from his monumental
biography of Don Bosco (Saint John Bosco: A
Giant of Charity) and partly relying on the Saint’s
memoirs, Father Auffray paints as complete a
picture as possible of this great woman.

A peasant by birth, Margherita already
demonstrated virtue, courage and common sense
as a young girl. After her husband’s death, she
single-handedly raised her three boys while
running the family farm. Then, when her beloved
John called on her help for his budding Oratory in
Turin, she generously answered his call. She once
more became a mother – this time of hundreds of
boys in Turin.

Father Auffray wrote this book in order to give
mothers an example they could follow and in
order to encourage them in the difficulties
inherent in their sacred task of raising children.
“We offer to all women who feel in their heart the
desire to be “mothers of a holy people” this model of
energy, abnegation and Christian spirit in the education
of her children”.
Father Augustin Auffray (Preface)
