Saint Dominic Savio - Confessor (1842-1857).
Saint Dominic Savio was born in Riva di Chieri, Italy, in 1842. He looked so frail and weak on the morning of his birth that his father rushed him that same evening to the parish church for Baptism. But Dominic survived and began serving Mass when he was five years old, one of his greatest joys. On the occasion of his First Holy Communion he made the resolution to die rather than sin.
