Was on the way to London at 6am this morning, was so early. I managed to lose my diary entry for yesterday.
Southwark has been fantastic, soooo many people came to venerate the relics, it was unbelievable. We had schools in today – pupils from Chertsey and Farnborough came and again, as with the schools in Liverpool, I was grateful that they got to experience Salesianity outside of school. Hopefully the saint that looks upon them from their school walls is much more real and the charism much more tangible, seeing that Don Bosco is much more than the name of their schools.
So many more inspirational stories from people of all walks of life who have known Don Bosco throughout their lives.
I almost dropped a sail on people’s head during the final liturgy, though thankfully I managed to rescue it before any damage was done!
