1859: Preparation for Christmas

During the novena of Christmas Don Bosco exhorted the boys to make it well. In the morning, rise promptly at the sound of the bell and if you feel the cold, think of Jesus shivering in the manger. During the day study your lessons diligently, do your homework and pay attention to your teachers for the love of Jesus. Remind yourselves that Jesus grew in wisdom, age, and grace before God and men. Above all, take care not do as anything to displease Him, (BM VI, 194)
