St. Dominic Savio
St. Dominic Savio (1842 – 1857) was a young Italian student of St. John Bosco. He had wanted to become a priest but he died of illness when he was only fourteen. St. Dominic resolved to become a saint from a young age, and loved to pray and speak to Jesus.  He had great devotion to Mother Mary and even started a group of young boys dedicated to Mary’s Immaculate Conception. Indeed, all of us can become saints when we are very young! St. Dominic is the patron saint of choirboys. His feast day is on 9 Mar.

Do you fast? Give me proof of it by your works. If you see a poor man, take pity on him. If you see a friend being honored, do not envy him. Do not let only your mouth fast, but also the eye, and the ear, and the feet, and the hands, and all the members of our bodies. Let the hands fast, by being free of avarice. Let the feet fast, by ceasing to run after sin. Let the eyes fast, by disciplining them not to glare at that which is sinful… Let the ear fast… by not listening to evil talk and gossip… Let the mouth fast from the foul words and unjust criticism. For what good is it if we abstain from birds and fishes, but bite and devour our brothers?
