NEWS

(ANS - Turin) - "Dear friends, yesterday, while reading the news of the press agencies, my blood froze in my veins on news of the interruption of the Salesians' activities in Damascus due to the dramatic situation the Syrian capital is experiencing during these days of intense fighting. Only four months ago, we were in Damascus, their guests."

(ANS - Juba) - On February 4, Pope Francis invited Catholics, Christians and non-Christians to pray and fast for peace, especially for the populations of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan. Salesians and other groups of the Salesian Family, who for decades have been working in both countries, know that educating young people to be "good Christians and honest citizens" is the best investment to achieve peace. Why they work without respite.

(ANS - Damascus) - Damascus, the capital of Syria, is experiencing very difficult days. "It has always been like this in these seven years of war, but these days we suffer even more because many missiles and mortar shells are being fired from the Ghouta, an area on the outskirts of Damascus, full of jihadists and many other fundamentalist groups." This is how Fr Mounir Hanachi, a Salesian from Aleppo, currently the director of the Salesian center in Damascus, describes the difficult hours that the city is experiencing.

  • Spain - Don Bosco's Preventive System relives in the film "Wonder"

    (ANS - Madrid) - The film "Wonder", the story of little Auggie Pullman, a child with a facial deformation who faces the challenge of attending a public school for the first time, arrived in cinemas this past December.

    During the film, which deals with the delicate issue of scholastic bullying, there is a clear resemblance to the Preventive System of Don Bosco and these ten sentences of the founder of the Salesians are proof of this.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • JESUS IN THE ARMS OF THE HUMBLE AND THE POOR

    Jesus continues to save humanity through our work, our self-giving, our good will. He continues to point out the road to us lest we lose our bearings and our way, and we always assist those who are growing weary, the humblest, the poorest, the least.
