St. John Bosco, commonly known as Don Bosco, was born on 16 August 1815 at Becchi, a village near Turin, Italy. He lost his father at the age of two. His childhood was steeped in poverty and even though he liked to study, he could not pursue his dream due to fierce opposition from his stepbrother, Anthony. However his mother encouraged and supported him to follow his dream. Eventually he had to leave home, work for his own upkeep, and pursue his studies.

Fr Zubi, as he is affectionately called, was born in the beautiful Basque country of Spain in a village named Azcoitia on 16 September 1930.
