Don Bosco as the bridge
Sitting for tea with Fr C. Thomas this evening, we were discussing things of the past... eminent Salesians whom I heard of and with whom Fr Thomas had the fortune of living with, years ago. Talking with him, I realised the wide generation gap between us. He would speak of some Salesian, someone who would be his companion or Assistant or Vocation promoter and I would only have merely heard of them (forget even seeing their picture!). About those whom I remembered and mentioned to him, they were all like small kids when he was in his best years. But amidst this canyon of time and space, the bridge that joined us: our Salesian vocation and our love for Don Bosco!
