Don Bosco relics attract hundreds
Some 14 priests from Mandalay Archdiocese and the Salesian congregation concelebrated a mass today before processing around the church together with the relics of Don Bosco as well as the Blessed Sacrament.
Maria Muriel Htay, a widowed parishioner from the church, said she forgot her worry and challenges when she saw the relics of Don Bosco.
Since childhood, she has known about Don Bosco but now seeing the relics is like meeting with him personally.
The relics are due to leave Myanmar on April 30.
