1848: Way of the Cross

The Way of the Cross was held for the first time at the Oratory. It began on March 10 and was repeated on the following Fridays for the rest of the Lenten season. Don Bosco led the service of the Way of the Cross, showing so full a consciousness of Our Saviour’s sufferings that his demeanour was more effective than a stirring sermon. (BM 111,226)

Don Bosco requested Pope Leo XIII to approve the formula for the blessing of Mary Help of Christians. It was granted on May 18. (cfr. BM XIII, 380ff)
