Dear Readers St. Don Bosco was the spiritual guide of St. Dominic Savio. Every morning after Mass, the boys would go to attend school. On one occasion, Don Bosco did not find young Dominic at school. Curious to know where he had gone, Don Bosco went to the chapel to find St. Dominic Savio lost in the love of Jesus with both hands on his heart. On enquiring, Don Bosco realised that Dominic had spent four hours with Jesus without even realising it! This is what happens when the Holy Spirit comes into our life. He instils in us a deep desire to love Jesus.
I am very happy to introduce our new magazine for children and teens –‘Kingdom Revelator’. The meaning of the word ‘Revelator’ is – the one who reveals. When we are young we have many questions and doubts regarding our faith. The Word of God says that the mystery which has been hidden throughout the ages and generations has now been revealed to his saints (Colossians 1:26). Who will reveal to us the mysteries of God? It is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will teach us everything we need to know. The Holy Spirit will reveal to us the love of God and the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. Romans 14:17 says, “the Kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” Our Lady of Lourdes told St. Bernadette that true joy cannot be found in the world. True joy is found in heaven which is our real home. In other words the moment we invite the Holy Spirit, He will fill us with heavenly joy.
May the exemplary life of St. Dominic Savio of purity and holiness inspire all young people all over the world. I pray that as the Holy Spirit revealed the love of Jesus to St. Dominic Savio, may the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit flood our hearts and soul.
