St. John (Don) Bosco, a 19th century Italian priest, was known for his love & labor for street children, juvenile delinquents, and other disadvantaged youth. Called the "Apostle of Youth" for turning the hearts of poor young people to God, and for founding the Salesian Society to remedy their lack of education & opportunities. St. John Bosco, pray for our youth!
When the tomb of St Cecelia was opened in 1599, Stefano Maderno(1566-1636), who created the fountains in St Peter’s Piazza, was then commissioned to sculpt what he saw. His inscription says: “Behold the body of the most holy virgin, Cecilia, whom I myself saw lying uncorrupt in her tomb. I have in this marble expressed for thee the same saint in the very same posture and body.” St. Ceclia Virgin and Martyr.
