Every Salesian who prays the formula of profession punctuates it this way:
“Father, may our grace, the intercession of Mary Help of Christians,
of St. Joseph, of St. Francis de Sales, and of St. John Bosco,
together with the assistance of my brother Salesians
keep me faithful day by day.”
Perhaps, the welcome embrace given by our brother Salesians concretely manifest this assistance in order to make us live our lives in keeping with the Salesian vows we professed … day by day,
Until we reach #Forever.
