155th anniversary of ADMA

18 aprile 2024


Don Bosco after having raised to Mary, according to the indications received by her in a dream, the votive shrine dedicated to the Help of Christians (Turin Valdocco 1868) wanted to erect a year later in the Basilica the "Association of the devotees of Mary Help of Christians" (18 April 1869) to radiate in the world the devotion to the Virgin invoked under this title. (ADMA regulations, Article 1)

Also on this occasion Don Bosco invites us to renew our love and our entrustment to Mary. Let us then offer her this Rosary with filial love and trust, contemplating her presence in the dream that is the foundation of our charism.
