GUWAHATI: During the pilgrim visit, Sr.Catherine K.P, addressed the gathering saying that “the relic of St. John Bosco is being brought to our region so that it may bring blessing to the people and also serve as an inspiration to all those working on behalf of youth. It is a glorious moment for us to welcome Don Bosco in St. Mary`s Maligaon.”
Further addressing the young people of the school she said that they were the privileged group to witness this great and significant event. She quoted the words of Don Bosco to the young people, “For you I Study, For you I work, For you I Live, ….“
Sr Grace Sebastian from St Mary’s School reports, some extraordinary events that have happened since Don Bosco Relic visit, 31st May.
One of our senior teachers was attacked by terrorists, the very next day after she paid homage to Don Bosco Relic in St. Mary’s school Guwahati. She believes that Don Bosco saved her life as she was carrying a religious article she put on the relic of Don Bosco. She says, when terrorists saw the religious article, they left her without doing any harm. This is her belief.
There are also reports of some inner healing for people. It is too early to gather all the information, she says.
However, she adds, “some people who were not talking to each other for one year, have started to relate. Also, some broken families have shown signs that they are beginning to get back to peaceful life.”
The Relic is currently in Shillong, the cradle of Salesian works in northeast India since 1922.
