03 June 2017

ANS - Asti – In the evening of Friday 2nd June, the relic of Saint John Bosco was stolen, which was placed in the rear side of the wall of Don Bosco Basilica at “Colle Don Bosco” in Castelnuovo Don Bosco. 

"Along with many devotees who will come to know about the happenings, we are grieving very much. We believe that Don Bosco can touch the hearts of those who have done that act and make it return to his footsteps as he had the capacity to transform the lives of young people whom he used to meet. We are also sure that as it has happened, a relic of Don Bosco can be stolen, but Don Bosco cannot be taken away from us and the many pilgrims who visit these places every day," said Fr Ezio Orsini, Rector of the Basilica.
