1885: A priestly vocation

Don Bosco told Father Lemoyne that he had often seen a flame come and rest on the head of one of the boys. The saint believed that it was a sign of an ecclesiastical vocation. (cfr. MB XVII, 470)

1886: Don Bosco maligned

The anticlerical newspaper La Riforma published a number of malicious articles regarding Don Bosco’s missionary letter in five languages. The newspaper depicted it as a cunning device; of the saint to extract money from the poor so as to send his missionaries to America with their purses full of money! (cfr. MB XVIII, 211; No. 721)
