The Missionary Dimension of Our Vocation

Br. Bryce Rodriguez 
We could see the generosity and the missionary zeal of Don Bosco in the fact that even when there were few Salesians in the congregation he still send missionaries to Patagonia under the able leadership of Fr. Cagliero . The Lord blessed Don Bosco’s generosity with the gift of many vocations during his lifetime. This holds true even of the second successor of Don Bosco: Don Rua under whose leadership the congregation grew and spread and even came to India. Now that we are experiencing a drop in vocations it is a time to think that may be we have neglected our congregation’s missionary dimension or that we are not sufficient witness to the young. God has blessed us with many abundant vocations and now it is the time to do to others what they have done to us knowing full well that God will bless our generosity and at the same time send us many vocations to the Salesian congregation.
