Don Bosco Relic and Extraordinary Happenings


By Chris Valentino
Chennai, May. 21. DULIAJAN (Dibrugarh) - The Don Bosco Relic arriving in Upper Assam (Dibrugarh and Tinsukia) has left signs of extraordinary happenings. Kohima too had earlier witnessed similar extraordinary events, reported last week.
Victoria Horo, sister of Fr Camil Horo, Rector of the Rua Home Aspirantate at Jorhat, teaches at Rose Bud School Duliajan. She is a polio victim from birth. She had been praying earnestly for a miraculous cure for one of her legs that is slightly shorter, so that she won't have to limp. She continued her supplication during the night vigil with the Don Bosco Relic at Tinsukia, on May 10.  

She did not experience any extraordinary healing. However, returning to school the next day, one of her colleagues at school, a Muslim teacher, suffered acute hand pain coupled with loud groans. Unable to do anything for her colleague, Victoria earnestly prayed to Don Bosco and started massaging the teacher's aching hand. After a spell of severe pain and loud groaning, the teacher calmed down fully healed.

Victoria's brother Fr Horo in Jorhat reports about his chronic hip and leg pain which he had reconciled to put up with for life... After praying fervently to Don Bosco when the Relic came to Jorhat, he has experienced tremendous well being.

Meanwhile, Rector of Don Bosco Dibrugarh Fr Jonas Kerketta reports two more extraordinary healings for two Hindu Teachers at Don Bosco School Dibrugarh. A detailed verified report of the same is awaited.

The Relic of Don Bosco arrived in Imphal on April 29, 2011. The Relic has thus far passed through Manipur and Nagaland and is currently in Upper Assam.

The Indian leg of the pilgrimage will last till November 30, 2011. This is in preparation for the bicentenary of Don Bosco's birth on August 16, 2015. The pilgrimage began on January 31, 2009 in Valdocco, Turin (Italy) and is expected to visit 130 countries.

The Salesian family in India includes the Salesian fathers and brothers of Don Bosco; Salesian Sisters, together with over 30,000 educators, several religious societies inspired by the spirit of Don Bosco and his educational methods. There are also thousands of alumni who played active role in the reception of the Relic.

Besides managing schools, colleges and various works for the young-at-risk, the Don Bosco Society in India also imparts life and livelihood skills through its 150 Technical Institutions, making Bosco Tech-India the second largest provider of vocational education in the country, after the Indian Government.
