In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan… as we shiver into another year, its pages blank and ready to be written, January brings us hope and new beginnings. Perhaps a new book could bring inspiration, comfort or a challenge. “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.” Charles William Eliot (1834–1926)

A small prayer card depicting St John Bosco

Portrait 75mm x 105mm

The prayer on the reverse reads:

Saint John Bosco

Friend of the young,

teacher in the ways of God,

your dedication to empowering the needy inspires us still.

Help me to work for a better world,

where the young are given the chance to flourish,

where the poor's dream for justice can come true, and where God's compassion is shown to be real.

Intercede for me as I bring my needs to you

and to our Heavenly Mother, the Help of Christians.

Saint John Bosco, Pray for us!
