Welcome to our Land O St. John Bosco

(sing-along)

Uploaded on YouTube: God Still Loves Channel

01 Jan 2013

This welcome song is addressed to Don Bosco, It was written on the occasion of the visit of his relics to India in 2011. The lyrics are inspired by the dream he had at Barcelona in 1886. He saw himself among a multitude of young people of an 'unknown country' who were overjoyed on seeing him and grateful for his visit and for the education they had received. We would like to think that that country was India. This, then, is a song of gratitude on behalf of the entire Indian Salesian Family, including collaborators, teachers, pupils and past pupils from our different cultures and faiths.

Get Back to Galilee

Uploaded on YouTube: God Still Loves Channel

01 Sept 2012

'Get back to Galilee', written in 1987, is a lamentation on war and an invitation to peace. 

It proposes a path to peace that begins from the One who, having suffered violence himself, turned to forgive his executioners. 

The challenge to promote peace is as imperative today as it was when this song was written; 

as relevant today as it was 2000 years ago when the Good News of God's invitation to Love was officially extended to people of all nations through his Son. 

Sung by Sheela John.
