A TEACHING FROM SAINT JOHN BOSCO


 "Preach to all, young and old alike, that they must remember they are children of Mary Help of Christians. Tell them she wants to free them from the dangers of the world and lead them to Heaven. And to those who honor her with their prayers and with the fulfillment of their duty, she will grant infinite graces and favors.” 

Saint John Bosco

IN THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH


  "Oh, my Lord and Savior, support me in that hour in the strong arms of Your Sacraments, and by the fresh fragrance of Your consolations. Let the absolving words be said over me, and the holy oil sign and seal me, and Your own Body be my food, and Your Blood my sprinkling; and let my sweet Mother, Mary, breathe on me, and my Angel whisper peace to me, and my glorious Saints smile upon me; that in them all, and through them all, I may receive the gift of perseverance, and die, as I desire to live, in Your faith, in Your Church, in Your service, and in Your love. Amen." 

 John Henry Newman
