Spirit of God ...

Come down upon us anew,

teach us unity.

Renew our hearts

and teach us to love as you love us,

to forgive as you forgive us.

Happy feast of St Leonard Murialdo!

Written by

saint-leonard-murialdo

 

On 18th May, we celebrate the feast of St Leonard Murialdo, who  was asked by Don Bosco to run the St Aloysius oratory. He later founded the Society of St Joseph of Turin, working with poor and abandoned boys in oratories and schools, where he used Don Bosco's approach of loving kindness. He was supportive of working people, and was an early advocate for an 8-hour working day.

Feast of St Louis Orione

Written by

On 16th May, we celebrate the Feast of St Louis Orione.


St Louis came from a humble family, and always identified with the poor, and wished to serve them. In his early life, he went to study at the oratory at Valdocco, where he was befriended by the elderly Don Bosco. Both the oratory and its founder had a powerful and lasting impression on Louis.

For the nine days leading up top her feast on 24th May, we traditionally pray a novena to Mary Help of Christians, who is close to the hearts of all of the Salesian Family. This year, as we mark the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in Turin, the global novena is a series of videos on the theme of Don Bosco's dreams which feature Mary Help of Christians.

 

The theme was proposed by the Rector Major, and the videos include commentary and testimony from him and others in the Salesian Family. Watch the trailer, and follow the videos on the ANS YouTube channel

Born on 9th May 1837, and known for her unfailing cheerfulness and ability to draw others into the vital work of supporting poor and marginalised girls, Maria Domenica Mazzarello was chosen by Don Bosco to work with him in establishing the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice (FMA) - the Salesian Sisters.
