  1. I would like to testify that St John Bosco’s Novena really helped me go through the difficult moment I had with my study Visa. I prayed with confidence to him and he helped me to get my application for an extension of days to complete my studies. I went through the process hustle free, and I am happy to announce that I have never seen the grace of God work so much in my life, After that encounter with His grace, I don’t think I will turn around and go back to the lie of a life I was living. I am grateful for St John Bosco’s intercession in my time of need. Amen and thank you Lord.

  10. A few years ago I found this website and said a novena along with the website. It just so happened that I stumbled upon it the day the novena began. Very good timing. My birthday is on January 31 and St. John Bosco is my patron saint. My son had a concussion and I was praying for his health. His health did not get better, but on my birthday a very good thing happened in school which helped him to graduate. He is still very sick, sicker than ever and a lot of time has passed, but I want to thank the Lord and St. John Bosco for this.
