What do you do when you see others hurting or fighting? St. John Bosco became a gentle, cheerful priest and cared for poor, homeless boys near his home in Italy. He taught them to pray, played with them, fed them, and built them schools. He never ignored them, yelled at them, or looked down on them because they were needy. How can you show respect to others like John Bosco?
