Saint Dominic Savio

Dominic was born in 1842 near Chieri, Piedmont, Italy in 1842. He was very bright and enjoyed school as well as the play yard. His way to holiness was to live simply by doing the everyday duties of life in an extraordinary way. His short life is filled with examples of extreme piety and atention to the suffering of others around him.
