BIS # 3558 FEAST OF ST. DOMINIC SAVIO CELEBRATED IN DIVYADAAN

by Ryan Lobo

DIVYADAAN- NASHIK, JULY 8, 2013: On the 6th of July 2013 the community of Divyadaan, Nashik celebrated the feast of St. Dominic Savio, a boy in the oratory of Don Bosco for whom sanctity consisted in being cheerful.

The day started with celebration of the Eucharist by Fr. Ivo Coelho, the Rector of the International Salesian Theologate at Ratisbonne, Jerusalem. He preached a simple but heart touching sermon on the life of Dominic Savio. He concluded by saying that we should also develop the habit of writing like Don Bosco and always remember that 'in holiness there is cheerfulness' and 'in cheerfulness there is holiness.'

During the Eucharist, special prayers were offered for our Rector and his intentions as he bears the name Savio and also for a brother who bears the name Dominic. Games were organized for the brothers to help them know each other better. A prayer service in the name of Dominic Savio was held in the evening at 7:15pm. The day concluded with a movie after night prayers.
