PRAYER AND PROMISE
of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco
GOD, OUR FATHER, THROUGH THE MEDIATION OF YOUR SON, JESUS, AND THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF SAINT JOHN BOSCO
give heed to the prayers of the Past Pupils all over the world.
WE THANK YOU
for the invaluable gift of education which we have received,
under the enlightened guidance of the Salesians,
which have instilled our lives with the Salesian Spirituality
WE ASK YOU WITH FAMILIAL TRUST
- Give us strength and courage
to live the human and Christian message,
in the Society and in the Church.
- Encourage us to become
"good Christians and honest citizens”,
- Help us to live together and promote solidarity
in our Association and beyond it.
- Strengthen our faith, hope and charity.
WE PROMISE YOU
- to fight against injustice,
blackmail, superficiality, indifference,
- and to defend at all costs,
the values inspired from Don Bosco’s teaching,
especially life, freedom and truth
with a spirit of social, political and financial commitment,
- and to be, “the salt of the earth and light of the world”
with a strong influence in the world and in the Church.
WE BEG YOU
to watch over our Salesian Family,
our dear ones and all of us. Amen.
