This week, we reflect on Don Bosco’s vision for our work with the young, by looking back to the beginning of the Oratory, a story retold by Rosa Navarro Durán.

 

God didn’t create paradise for it to be empty

 

It was 8th December 1841: the day of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Don Bosco was about to start Mass in the church of St Francis of Assisi when he saw a boy in the corner with his jacket covered in plaster from the walls.  The boy was an apprentice builder and an orphan of just sixteen years old. Everybody laughed at him. But Don Bosco saw him for what he was—a defenceless young boy. He knelt by his side and said a Hail Mary. “Don't be afraid. You're my friend now and no-one is going to hurt you.”

Michael Magone 500

The latest in the new Pocketbook Series from Don Bosco Publications is The Life of Michael Magone, by Philip J Pascucci SDB.

 

This little volume tells the inspiring story of a former street boy whose life was transformed by the influence and education of Don Bosco. Our founder met Michael by chance, and instantly recognised the boy's natural leadership qualities, and offered him the opportunity to join the Turin oratory, where he grew and thrived for the rest of his short life.
