A really inspiring book, about the life of a young Catholic lad, Dominic Savio (who was later canonised a saint), who was a student of Father John Bosco (Don Bosco, who was also canonised a saint). He led a really pious and holy life, and died at the young age of 14, one month short of his 15th birthday, preserving his baptismal innocence until his death. It makes us think; if a young lad can be this good, why can't we 'more mature' adults be like him? A highly recommended read. I didn't say too ...more
I rated this based on the influence I think it will have on my daily life. I really like that Saint John Bosco did not go into detail about ecstasies and the other extraordinary phenomena Saint Domenico Savio experienced but rather portrayed him as a model for youth in their everyday life. I think his qualities will make him quite a good model for me to (try to) follow.
Beatiful and inspiring. The updated title of the book is "The Life of St. Dominic Savio." This is honestly one of the most wonderful and fulfilling books I've read (and I've read a lot of books).
It's very cool to read a book written by a Saint, about a Saint. But can I admit that rather than finding young Dominic Savio inspiring, I felt discouraged? Purity, piety, and zeal at levels so far beyond my reach!
