BIS #1886 MODEL OF CHEERFULNESS IN HOLINESS
LONAVLA, JUNE 28, 2010: The community and boys of Don Bosco Lonavla began the novena to St. Dominic Savio on June 27, 2010. The sodality of St. Dominic Savio consisting of boys of standard eighth, ninth under the leadership of the tenth standard boys will animate the community for the remaining days of the novena to St. Dominic Savio.
The inauguration began with a hymn to Dominic Savio with a short summary of his life. The theme chosen for the week is “Model of Cheerfulness in Holiness’. Fr Cletus the Rector of Don Bosco Lonavla spoke about the sanctity of St. Dominic Savio which was filled with happiness and joy. His holiness lied in being happy and cheerful thus spreading easily his holiness on to others. With this message the novena to Dominic Savio was inaugurated. Incidentally today also happened to be the day of arrival of the students of standard eleventh and the English course; a fitting day to start on.
St. Dominic Savio is indeed for all of us a model of cheerfulness in holiness, a boy who at such a young age achieved so much. May we too by his example and prayers come closer to God.
