It was a long movie, I actually watched it over a few nights. It was a little slow, but so, so good. The movie makers did a super job of doing it right. I cried off and on, especially when St Dominic Savio died. St John Bosco is one of our favorite saints because we pray every night for him to surround the kids' beds with Angels and Saints and help them to dream happy dreams about Jesus. He received visions in his dreams, this is how God spoke to him. So that is why we ask his intercession. My husband used to work at a treatment home for children and he first became a favorite back then.
St John Bosco, pray for us!
