Saint John Bosco


Saints One day Don Bosco blessed who held a cripple on crutches for 16 years and he immediately was healed and threw the crutches because he no longer needed. I, Don Dalmazio, asked Don Bosco: "How is it that he has been cured after the blessing?". The Saint answered: "The blessing of Maria Auxiliadora cured him".
I said, "I have also blessed many times with the same formula and nothing happened." The Saint added: "It's because you have no faith".
