John Bosco was born on 16 August 1815, in Becchi, from a family of poor farmers. It was through his mother, Margaret, that John first learned to see God in others; in the poor who came knocking at the door of the house during winter, and to whom Margaret gave hot soup. His dad, Francesco, died when John was two.
