Quetta, Pakistan, 8 January 2021 -- Many people in the world dream of living an exemplary life. On 6 January 2021 thousands of people from every corner of Balochistan, joined both the Salesian communities of Lahore and Quetta and the Clergy at Don Bosco Learning center Quetta to participate in the Holy Eucharist on the third death Anniversary of the late Fr. Peter Zago, SDB who lived and worked for the poor the marginalized and the neediest people of Quetta Pakistan. In short, Fr. Peter Zago, SDB lived his whole life for the betterment of others working in the vineyard of the Lord, following the footsteps of Don Bosco under the Guidance of Mary Help Christians.

As Pope Francis has said and I quote “Rivers do not drink their own water; trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and the flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Living for others is a Rule of Nature. We are all born to help each other. No matter how difficult it is…. Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you.”

In addition, many people have encountered happiness because of Fr. Peter. Many people are eating because of his toil and many beautiful flowers have had the chance to blossom because of his hard work, but most of all, people have met Jesus through the person of Fr Peter. After the Mass some people shared their personal experiences of working side by side with Fr. Peter Zago, not only for the well-being of Christian communities but also, of the Muslim Communities as well. They were with him in his struggles and successful moments. Listening to their profound reflections one could say that Fr. Peter had a deep meaningful impact on their lives.

Moreover, as a priest Fr. Peter Zago, SDB gave Jesus to the people in the Holy Sacraments and also dreamt of giving people more Religious especially Salesians to bring Jesus to the People and the Faithful ones to Jesus. By the end of his life he witnessed two local Salesian priests (Fr. Noble Lal, SDB and Fr Samuel Adnan Ghouri, SDB) and many young people on the way to Salesian religious life.

Today many people not only here in Pakistan but also other places of the world feel blessed to have encountered and worked with this great Missionary. Many Salesians are being inspired by him after God to answer the Salesian and religious Vocation.

May God grant eternal rest to his Soul.
