A brief account of St John Bosco's special devotion to Our Lady as the Help of Christians.

Paperback portrait 105mm x 148mm



Throughout the course of history, Christian people have experienced the protection of the Virgin Mary, and the title 'Help of Christians' is one of numerous names by which we have come to know and love Mary. In the latter half of the 19th century, St John Bosco had a particular reverence for this title and made Mary Help of Christians the patroness of his religious order, the Salesians. This is a brief account of his devotion to her.
