Brief description:

Mak went to Israel on a pilgrimage led by Fr. Lionel Wu. The group visited many places.  At first, he did not listen to the Father, and bought many souvenirs and took many pictures. One night at their hotel, loud explosions were heard in the distance. Mak was too scared to sleep and began pondering: if God took my life away tonight, I would lose all my photos and souvenirs. She abstained from photos and souvenirs the next day, and was finally able to pause and reflect. The pilgrimage also made Scripture alive for Mak: she had a special experience while hearing the Parable of the Sower on the Mount of the Beatitudes and walking on the very soil on which Jesus once walked two thousand years ago. The pilgrimage changed Mak’s life, but more importantly, she was able to bring that fire of faith back to her home and her workplace.

Brief description:

The mother of John Bosco, Margherita was a living example to her children. Once, she suspected that someone was stealing their grapes so she kept watch with her three sons. That night, they saw a man sneak into their vineyard but as he was grabbing the grapes, Margherita shouted, “Hey, thief! Are you not afraid of going to hell for some little grapes?” Then, the children started banging on drums and cried, “Thief! Thief! Police, quickly catch the thief!” The thief was frightened out of his wits and fled. The children were amused and Margherita told them, “See, unarmed as we are, we were able to scare off the thief.” John Bosco learned to be resolute in the face of difficulties from his mother. Once, while visiting his maternal grandfather with Margherita, they heard a strange sound coming from upstairs. As darkness approached, everyone but John Bosco was afraid. He grabbed a lamp and bravely went upstairs, with everyone else cautiously following behind. When they reached the source of the sound, they saw a grain sieve moving by itself on the floor. The others fled in fear, thinking it was a work of the devil. But John Bosco bent down, lifted the sieve, and revealed a hen. It turned out that the sieve had been knocked down by the hungry hen, entrapping it, and causing the hen to make those strange noises. So John Bosco grabbed the hen and had it cooked as a celebratory feast for the family.
