Don Bosco's Way

Sir,-To say St. John Bosco abolished corporal punishment from his educational system, except as a last resort, is true. That., however, was a purely negative feature. To achieve his truly remarkable results witness his recently canonized pupil, Dominic Saviu-he based his whole method on the supernatural foundation of frequent and proper reception of Confession and Holy Communion. Then he endeavoured to reproduce in his schools the happy and cheerful atmosphere that exists in a good, Catholic family. How ? His Salesians arc ever in the midst of the boys, not as policemen, but helping, organizing, and partaking in all their boyish activities with the kindness of elder brothers. That, I think, in capsule form was the Saint's way. Whilst individuals, being but human, may at times fall short of this high ideal. this is the deceptively easy system the Salesians of Don Bosco try to carry out in their schools the world over.
