Strive to Make Yourself Loved

Day 4: Strive to Make Yourself Loved

Don Bosco’s expression “studia di farti amare”, strive to make yourself loved, is fully relevant today. Presence does not only consist in spending time with young people as a group, but in meeting them individually in a personal way, establishing a relationship that allows us to get to know and listen to their desires, their difficulties and struggles and, at times, their fears and qualms. It is a relationship that seeks to go beyond superficial knowledge, offering friendship characterized by mutual confidence and sharing.   Like Don Bosco, we still have to cultivate the art of taking the first step… eliminating distance and barriers and giving birth to the joy and the desire to see each other again, to be friends…

Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory Be…
St. John Bosco, pray for us!

The readings of the day are taken from The Post General Chapter 28 Reflections by the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, SDB.
