DB Novena Day 9
Day 9: This is the time for generosity in the Congregation.
We are a Congregation that is always missionary…. We have a history of 162 years characterized by great generosity that already began with Don Bosco. In a world where borders are more and more “a defense against others,” the prophecy of our life as Salesians of Don Bosco also consists in this: in showing that for us there are no borders. The only reality we respond to is: God, the Gospel and the mission that has been entrusted to us. It is precisely for this that our international and intercultural communities have great prophetic value today, without hiding the fact that building fraternity in different situations requires a vision of faith and personal engagement.
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.
