Simple Hints - For the Young Salesians in Formation


SIMPLE HINTS TO THE YOUNG SALESIAN, 

TO HELP HIM PERSEVERE IN HIS VOCATION


By Fr. A. Balzario - Madras

Preface by Archbishop Louis Mathias, SDB


FOR DOWNLOAD: SIMPLE HINTS.docx  or  SIMPLE HINTS.pdf


“Attend unto reading” was the advice given by St. Paul to his beloved disciple Timothy. We would say to our young clerics and lay brothers: “attend unto the reading of these hints,” for they wish to instruct you, guide you, and safeguard your vocation from all the perils that you will meet in your new life. 

You will not have your Master of Novitiate near you any more to enlighten you and to help you. Although the Rector of the House where you will be sent will take his place, it will not be however always possible for him to take the same care your Master took of you. You are not to be fed any longer and you must stand on your feet. 

These hints will help you. They will teach you how to swim now that you are thrown into the waters of life. They will teach you how to fly like the mother teaches her little birds. They will teach you how to move in a new life endangered with many obstacles. They will show you which obstacles you must avoid and which virtues you must practice. 

Read these hints, remembering the saying of a saint that when we pray we speak to God but in good reading it is God who speaks to us, so listen to Him through these hints. 

 

Louis Mathias, SDB. 

Archbishop of Madras.
