Prayer to St. John Bosco

Glorious Saint John Bosco, who in order to lead young people to the feet of the divine Master and to form them in the light of faith and Christian morality didst heroically sacrifice thyself to the very end of thy life and didst found a proper religious Institute destined to endure and to bring to the farthest boundaries of the earth thy glorious work, obtain also for us from Our Lord a holy love for young people who are exposed to so many seductions in order that we may generously spend ourselves in supporting them against the snares of the devil, in keeping them safe from the dangers of the world, and in guiding them, pure and holy, in the path that leads to God.

An indulgence of 300 days.
A plenary indulgence on the usual conditions, if this prayer is devoutly recited every day for a month (S.P. Ap., Feb. 25, 1941).
