THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK BEGINNING 30th JANUARY 2022: THE FEAST OF THE PRESENTATION OF CHRIST IN THE TEMPLE

“Without confidence and love, there can be no true education.”

John Bosco (1815-188), Priest and Founder of the Salesian Teaching Order, cited on the ‘TrueChristianity’ website here:

On Monday 31st January the Church remembers John Melchior Bosco in its prayers. This Italian priest, popularly known as Don Bosco, dedicated himself to education, especially of the poor.
