Pietro Stella – La diaspora dei Bosco tra ’700 e ’900

Rievocando le vicende della propria vita nelle Memorie dell’Oratorio Don Bosco esordiva, ormai cinquantenne, dichiarandone la « lezione » che se ne poteva ricavare: quanto metteva per iscritto poteva servire, secondo lui, a far conoscere come Dio aveva « egli stesso guidato ogni cosa in ogni tempo », e come ciò poteva servire « a superare le difficoltà future, prendendo lezione dal passato ».

I will place special emphasis on the Salesian Oratory, Sliema.
