Each one of us is called by God and given a mission to fulfill, but the question is have we taken it seriously as Don Bosco? We are blessed with good family, friends, food, education and luxury. We tend to take life for granted and live it in a way we want, not realizing the purpose that God has for each one of us. Don Bosco did three years of high school in one scholastic year and one summer. His exceptional memory and intensive study habits made the self –motivated boy to grow up not losing sight of his vocation. Let’s learn from him this Strong Conviction and Focus to achieve our goals. Don Bosco insisted on four values for any student – i. Always have a clear conscience, ii. Moderation in eating, iii.Active life, iv. Surround yourself with good companions. Don Bosco would say, “The school was not the end; it was rather the instrumental means for improving the way of life.Let Don Bosco be our model in all that we do.
