2015 Holy Shroud Exhibit...'We can say, Don Bosco made it happen'

2014-02-11

Where others saw poverty and hopelessness, one man saw unlimited potential. He's known as Don Bosco, an Italian priest who clearly understood,  the power of education.

"Education has four main goals: To teach you how to live, to share, to seek the truth and to be happy.”


 He empowered others through faith and education, particularly street children and youths who needed a sense of direction.

"We have to believe in the youth. If you think about it, they are the ones with the most potential.”

 

With this clear purpose, St. John Bosco, founded the Salesian Order in 1864 in the Italian city of Turin. Since 2015 marks the Bicentennial of Don Bosco's birth, the city is getting ready for the celebration with the Shroud of Turin.


 FR. ROBERTO GOTTARDO

Diocesan Commission of the Holy Shroud
"So many people have asked themselves, how is it that the Holy Shroud of Turin, will be on display again so soon, just five years after the first public exhibit? Well, we could say Don Bosco was able to make it happen.”


Now, even the Shroud of Turin, which according to tradition bears the image Jesus, will be on display in Turin, to mark the life of a priest whose legacy is still very much alive. Spread out across 132 nations, the Salesians have turned despair into hope, ignorance into knowledge.


 Even young lay people like Giorgia say, the Order has forever changed their lives.


 GIORGIA

"It was important to know that someone cared about me and my bringing up. Especially when it came to my faith.”


 Don Bosco was canonized in 1934. His body is laid to rest in Turin, at the Basilica of Our Lady Help of Christians. Every day his life and legacy is celebrated all across the globe.
