This is the story of a young man of generosity, courage and compassion. Sean spent his short life working for the poor children of Africa. Service to others is embodied in his now well-known motto: "While my heart beats, I have to do what I think I can do, and that is to help those who are less fortunate." Although his convictions cost him his life, his spirit lives on in the young people he worked for in Africa, and in all those who have been inspired by his life.
Book on ‘Youth Policy of India: Critical Reflections’ released by the Rector Major Rev,Fr.Angel Fernadez Artime on 4th March 2017 during the Team Visit at Don Bosco Provincial House, Chennai. The author is Dr.Casimir Raj Motcham, a Salesian of Don Bosco from the Province of Tiruchy, who has more than twenty years of experience in working with the youth in India & Europe. His research interest include: Youth Policy, Youth Work and Youth Research.
In 2006, when the Rector Major called for the congregation to 'start again from Don Bosco' to reawaken the heart of every Salesian, Ian Murdoch SDB, an Australian Salesian priest, educator and historian, responded as a Salesian and a significant historian, by delving anew into the available material on the founder. His Provincial therefore felt he was ideally suited to preach all of the Spiritual Retreats across the Australia-Pacific Province in 2008. This book contains the conferences he gave at those retreats.
'Loving kindness' is one of the three founding principles of Don Bosco's approach to accompanying and educating the young. In times when harsh and uncompromising discipline was the norm, his philosophy was radical.
