St. John Bosco
A couple weeks ago I saw that the Basilica would be hosting the relics of St. John Bosco this Tuesday. The relic is journeying to 130 nations in preparation for the 2015 celebration of the 200th Anniversary of Don Bosco’s birth near Turin, Italy on August 16, 1815. I have always been a fan of Don Bosco, so I was hoping to make a trip. Since we hadn't brought Philip to Andy's office for a visit yet, I decided we should go on Tuesday (Andy's second to last day of paternity leave). So this past Tuesday, we visited the office and then went over to the basilica for veneration of St. John Bosco's relics.
