St. Dominic Savio Comments

St. Dominic Savio was born in Italy in 1842. One day when he was just four, he disappeared and his good mother went looking for him. She found the little fellow in a corner praying with his hands joined and his head bowed. He already knew all his prayers by heart! At five, he was an altar boy. When he was seven, he received his First Holy Communion. On that solemn day, he chose a motto: "Death, but not sin!" and he kept it always. ... Continue Reading

    I've heard a lot about this saint but never read his story.
    It is nice to read of how he always wanted to imitate Jesus.

    I was told by my priest to pray for Dominic Savio's intercession to conceive a child.

    So Dominic Savio I pray for your intercession in order for me and my husband to conceive a child. Through your innocence and purity of heart, intercede for the purity of me and my spouse that we can raise our child to be as in love with God as you were!

    my son Dominic(k) was born with a smile on his face. It lights up his face and anyone whos met him adults, children, strangers, and family remark how he makes them happy. After reading this I can''t help marveling that even though we already had another name chosen, we chose this randomly at the end. He is blessed. St. Dominic Savio please watch over and guide my son Dominic(k) and my son Joseph (another blessing)and keep them safe and true to themselves and our Lord. In Jesus's name I pray. Amen

    Dear Blessed Saint Dominic Savio:

    Oh I love you so much!! I recently ordered a book on your life to give to my children to read so that they might imitate your love of Christ and His Church. Please, ALWAYS watch over my kids and God-children. Keep them safe, protect them from mortal sin, obtain for them holy companions all their lives, great love of God and His church, and the grace of a holy death.

    May I be so bold as to ask another favor, I have been having difficulty conceiving, please obtain for me another child before I get too old. I promise, if its a boy, to name him after you.

    In Jesus' name,

    Our dear little grandson was just named Dominic. St. Dominic will truly be a wonderful role model for him to look up to. We will share this wonderful story with him and his parents.

    Does anyone know where to go to find our how to start a Dominc Savio Club? I recall one in a parish I worked in twenty years ago, but I can not find any info on how to start one in my new parish. I would need "by laws" or mission statements as well as the parameters that apply to be an official Dominic Savio Club. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!

    My son, came asking me for a patron saint for his confirmation. I could not give a clear thought what name should be said but next morning all of a sudden I remember Dominic Savio
    Though since my childhood when I used to his picture deep in my heart a cute feeling for his respectful ways touched me a lot. But years passed I missed out the don bosco church in India. Now my son is 14 and one of the priest asked me to pray to dominic savio and my eyes were in tears it brought back my memories of the visit.
    He is amazing saint and very touching for youth.
