Why return?

Yesterday, I posted a stuff on how to "return to Don Bosco," the main theme of GC 26 which will commence on the 23rd of this month.

Some respondents were asked in person, others replied via the Internet (via e-mail and Friendster).

The replies of the SDB's (Salesians of Don Bosco) are valid; no one answer is correct. Each of them speaks of his "realities" being in the congregation for a number of years already. In fact, some have spent four fruitful decades in the walls of the Society.

Reflecting on each of them overwhelmed me.

But one Salesian struck me with his question after he received mine:

"Did we leave Don Bosco somewhere? Why do we have to return to him?"

Although delivered in jest, this question strikes me.
