According to Da Mihi Animas, a relic of St. John Bosco will visit the different countries in which Salesians are located for the next several years. The casket containing the relic was blessed on April 15 at the Cathedral of Mary, Help of Christians in Don Bosco’s native town of Turin, wher he began his ministry to young people.
The relics will traverse many different regions of the world between 2009 and 2014. The relics will be in the United States between March and October 2010. For those who can venerate them, this will be a time rich with many blessings similar to the visit of St. Therese of Lisieux’s relics to the United States over a decade ago.
Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us!
St. John Bosco, pray for us!
