RMG – 9 March 2018: 161st anniversary of dies natalis of St Domenico Savio

(ANS – Rome) – Remembering Saint Domenico Savio in this special year that the Church dedicates to young people is significant because not only was he a model and an example for his companions at the Valdocco oratory, but he also knew how to embody the role of a team captain or leader, a sort of teacher in the ways of God (as Don Bosco also saw him in the dream of Lanzo in 1876). The confirmation of this comes from the life of various Blesseds, Venerables and Servants of God who made the proposals of Domenico their own: Laura Vicuña, Zephirino Namuncurà, Giuseppe Kowlaski, Alberto Marvelli, Giuseppe Quadrio, Ottavio Ortiz Arrieta. And not only in the Salesian world. In recent days, Pope Francis acknowledged the martyrdom of a young Slovak girl, Anna Kolesárová, called Anka, a young woman from the Archdiocese of Košice, who lived a calm and peaceful existence until the soldiers of the Red Army occupied her native village, Vysoka nad Uhom. She left a shelter where she was with her family to feed a soldier who turned on her; she repeatedly rejected his assaults and prepared to die rather than give herself to him. She was...

The experience can… Worried about your rebellious teenager? Here’s your patron saint  Philip Kosloski | Nov 18, 2017 Public Domain St. Dominic Savio led his troublesome classmates back to God. It can be difficult being a parent, especially when a young teenager strays from the path of truth and heads down roads that too often prove to be not just fruitless but harmful. The experience can be painful, both for a teenager and for parents, yet it almost seems like an unavoidable part of life. While there are many different factors that contribute to a child’s rebellious behavior, parents (and teachers) can always turn to the saints in their time of need. One of the many powerful intercessors in God’s presence is St. Dominic Savio. Dominic was a bright kid who met St. John Bosco at the age of 12 and attended his school. As an ordinary and fun-loving boy, he sometimes got into trouble for laughing too much in the classroom. He loved to play...
