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.
