18 May 2020

Rome, Italy - May 2020 - On May 16, 1887, Don Bosco celebrated the Eucharist at the altar dedicated to Mary Help of Christians in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Rome. During the celebration he was seen crying many times, contemplating his whole life as a miracle. In memory of that memorable date, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, accompanied by Fr Carlo Zucchetti, pastor, and Fr Jean-Claude Ngoy, Director, celebrated Mass on the same altar as Don Bosco did 133 years ago.
