The genius of Don Bosco

Don Bosco was a great saint who was able to connect the tradition of the church to the raw and energetic world of young people. He was able to make faith into a constant experience in young lives. The ability to link fun, friendship, optimism, and compassion to the Gospels makes him an outstanding saint for this century.  He couldn't think of saints as miserable. He wanted them to radiate resurrection and trust that God is with us. So being present to life and to others was, for him, a way of being present to God.

So where are you with that mysterious presence of God right now?
