Let Some Words from Our Salesian Saints Guide Your Way

“To the young: I love you with all my heart, and it is sufficient for me that you are young to love you deeply… You will hardly find anyone who will love you more in Jesus Christ and who will have greater concern for your happiness.”
St. John Bosco
“Courage my good Sisters; let us do good as long as we have time. Never get discouraged, no matter what difficulties you may have to encounter.”
St. Mary Mazzarello
“I feel a great yearning, a strong need of becoming a saint. I never knew it could be so easy, but now I see one can be happy and holy, too. I absolutely want to become asaint! I must!”
St. Dominic Savio
“When I return home, I will teach my people the ways of God. I will start a school for the children and teach them peace. I am going to be a Salesian priest and will be their spiritual chief.”
