  3. Don Bosco wants his young people happy in this world and in the next

  4. Jesus is the Happiness that you, dear young people, are looking for

  5. 'I feel within me a desire and a need of becoming holy' (Dominic Savio)

  6. Holiness lived in the Salesian charism

  7. What does it mean 'Holiness for you, too!'?

  8. Some pointers to holiness and some dynamics to help on this journey
