Today the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians celebrate the feast of their cofounder: Maria Domenica Mazzarello. From the beginning of their existence, Don Bosco wanted St. Francis de Sales to be the patron saint of the institute of the sisters, together with Teresa of Avila, as you can see in the picture of the first draft of their constitutions. At the conference in November we will hear more detailed how the spirit of Francis de Sales fits into their charism.
Making arrangements to get a surplice of saint Francis de Sales here @ our university for our international conference in November. In the meanwhile it is good to know we have a relic of him in one of our chapels at the university. #francisdesales #francescodisales #françoisdesales #francescodisales2022
