Saints We Are

By: Fr. Randy Figuracion, SDB

When we talk about “saints,” we immediately think of the “canonized ones” – those proclaimed by the Church as blessed because they have lived extraordinary lives beyond that of an average Christian. Here we note that the Church does not make or create saints, but rather recognizes their virtues and present them to the faithful as role models in the practice of the faith.

The first saint I have known is San Antonio of Padua. My mom entrusted me to his care in my childhood. She even added it as my baptismal name. He was known for his persuasive preaching and impressive miracles borne out of his deep faith in God. The saint who inspired me most is St. John Bosco. Having read his life as a boy, his personality captivated me because he was such a talented individual both in nature and in grace. But my favorite saint is John Paul II because he inspired me to be a priest. Most of all, he is the only saint I have seen in my life.

Dear Friends,

Peace be with you!

I am writing in view of the month of November where we solemnly remember our beloved departed.

The Salesians of Don Bosco-Philippine South Province is cordially inviting you to send us the names of your deceased loved ones for us to offer masses and prayers during the whole month of November 2017 for their eternal repose.

Likewise, we offer in these masses our ongoing vocation work for future Salesian priests and brothers who will carry on Don Bosco’s mission for the young. We would very much appreciate if you can also share whatever blessings you have for the cause of vocation promotion.

Your support will go a long way in sustaining the Salesian mission.

In Don Bosco,

Fr. Andy A. Satura, SDB
