A vessel with the brain of the founder of the Salesian order from Basilica of his birthplace Castelnuovo disappeared
Rome (kath.net/KAP) Unknowns have stolen a relic with the brain of Saint Don Bosco (1815-1888) from his church in Castelnuovo. As reported by the Italian media on Saturday, the container has disappeared from its place of storage behind the main altar of the lower church since Friday evening. Investigations are in progress.
The priest Giovanni Bosco dedicated himself especially to the care of disadvantaged youth in the emerging industrial city of Turin. The order of the Salesians of Don Bosco goes back to him. The basilica consecrated in 1984 above its birthplace in Castelnuovo is the center of attraction for many pilgrims.
