St. Dominic Savio (1842-1857)
So many holy persons seem to die young. Among them was Dominic Savio, the
patron of choirboys. Born into a peasant family at Riva, Italy, young
Dominic joined St. John Bosco as a student at the Oratory in Turin at the
age of 12. He impressed John with his desire to be a priest and to help
him in his work with neglected boys. A peacemaker and an organizer, young
Dominic founded a group he called the Company of the Immaculate Conception
which, besides being devotional, aided John Bosco with the boys and with
manual work. All the members save one, Dominic, would in 1859 join John in
the beginnings of his Salesian congregation. By that time, Dominic had
been called home to heaven.

Or what great nation has statutes and decrees that are as just as this
whole law which I am setting before you today? ~Deuteronomy 4:1, 5-9

Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and
teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.
But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest
in the Kingdom of heaven.? ~Matthew 5:17-19

God's law is always there ... to protect us and to provide for us. Rather
than restricting us, God's law brings us freedom. How wonderful our lives
can by when we comply with God's plan for us and follow His law.  We can
truly be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven!

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I may follow God's plan for my life.  I pray that I may follow
His law.

We pray for people suffering from natural disaster, especially those in
Haiti and Chile. We pray for great respect for life from natural
conception to natural death.  We pray for an end of terrorism and
war, for the safety of our troops and their families at home.

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!

Father Pat
