At the age of 10, St Joseph Cafasso used to 'preach' sermons he had heard, to those he had rounded up and brought to his parents' home. These he would preach from his 'pulpit'- a chair on which he would stand.
This is a short life of St Joseph as preached by St John Bosco in two sermon's after St Joseph's death. This book looks at the saint's early life, his practise of mortification, the process of his dying and relates some incidents from his working with prisoners. Also included are some prayers of the saint himself.
