In the beginning of this chapter, Saint John Bosco was said to be the central figure of this vastly extensive biography. He was also known as the towering person in the affairs of both church and the state during the critical 19th century in Italy. He was also a founder of two very active religious congregations during a time when other orders were being suppressed. He was also known familiarly throughout the world simply as Don Bosco. He was known with his own famous system of education which he called the preventive system. He is also known as to be the father founder of the societies of the Saint Francis De Sales (Salesian Society) and the institute of the daughters of Mary help of Christians (Salesian Sisters) which today number is more than 40,000 members conducting 2800 educational institutions throughout the world. It is also said that in the volume memoir showed the action of Don Bosco not him being terrorizing but educating. In the compilation of the biographical memoirs of Saint John Bosco, father lemonynes primary sources were the memoir Del – L’Oratorio dal 1835 Al 1855 written by Don Bosco himself, the diaries and chronicles of various fellow Salesians who daily recorded what Don Bosco said or did.

It is also said that in editing the translation of the biographical memoirs accuracy and readability were the goals we set. The account of the life of Don Bosco has now reached the year 1814 which says that peace and security reigned throughout the piedmont month. Mysterious and highly secret messengers were dispatched from Turin to all parts of Italy, as well as to Brussels and Paris. In the meantime, in Turin, count Camillo Cavour founded with Whist Club so that the members of this harmless group might be gradually and prudently apprised of the new political ideas. Charles Albert wanted to free Italy. He envisioned a country in which religion and justice would prevail. He believed that one’s victory was achieved he could either convert or destroy Liberalism, which religion and justice would prevail. It is also said that the papacy was at this time both a spiritual and a temporal power. It is also said that Don Bosco daily gazes upon the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, held in his hands and moistens his lips with his Most Precious Blood, his faith grows livelier, ever increasing the intensity of his love and urging him on to distribute among the faithful treasures of which our Lord has made him the custodian. Don Bosco spent his first few months of his Priest-Hood in his native town. Two years earlier Don Bosco brother Joseph had terminated his sharecropper contract with Joseph Febraro on the Susambrino estate, which was now the property of Chevalier (John) Pescarmona and had returned to live at Becchi.

Don Bosco as he is often called spent most of the time at the rectory with his beloved pastor, Father Cinzano and helped in parish work as much as could. It is also said that as Don Bosco himself wrote, preached every Sunday in his parish Church. In 1844 at Montafa, Mr Joseph Turco was stricken with fever and no doctors prescriptions could cure him. Don Bosco Will always tell people that he is a poor Priest. The particular pre-occupation of Don Bosco was to preach so as to be understood by all, the common people as well as the young. Father Guala aim in founding the Convitto  Eccelesiatico was to put an end to this controversy. It is said that Father Cafassoconstantly urged “Become Saints” The Priest-Hood, what exalted dignity in this word, but also said that priest may be considered as holy men and yet not by God. In seeking the cause of such depravity among those unfortunate youths, Don Bosco came to the conclusion that it lay not only in the fact that they had been deplorably abandoned in the early years by theirs Parents, but still more in their alienation from religious practices on holy days of obligation. Don Bosco was sadly moved by the sight of so many youths of Turin treading the path of dishonor and perdition, neglecting the divine law, of which they were ignorant and offending God, whine they hardly knew. Don Bosco only wished to alleviate the poor Lad’s misery and dispel the bad impression he had received in the Sacristy Father Cafasso had a rare and wonderful talent for stimulating interest even in subjects that if themselves were thorny and unattractive.

It is also said that besides moral theology, Father Cafassotaught homiletics. He also had little use for purely flowery Panegyrics or Polemical sermons. Also words cannot describe the benefits Don Bosco derived from these lessons everyday, meals were followed by a period of recreation. Father Cafassohad spent a whole week instructing and encouraging forty-five notorious criminals in large cell, in preparation for the feast of the Virgin Mary. It was also said that on the April 30 (1842), the city of Turin suffered a great loss in the saintly death of canon Joseph Benedict Cottolengo. He is also seen as a man raised up by God to bring relief to all sorts of human infirmities and miseries.

In Conclusion,

Don Bosco continued to give regular lessons to the sisters working for a teachers diploma and helped the boys obtain their certificates with distinction so that the order would not have to pay salaries.
