(ANS - Rome) - Sexual abuse of minors exists in all societies, cultures and countries around the world. The evil is much more widespread than commonly thought: according to EU data, in Europe alone, a boy or girl in five is sexually abused. For this reason, the Center for the Protection of Minors of the Gregorian University has recently organized the "1st Global Congress" on "Dignity of the Minor in the Digital World"  - to which Pope Francis also sent a message.

(ANS - Negombo) - From the mountains of Trentino surrounding Rovereto, his hometown, to the Himalayas of Bhutan, to the waters of the Indian Ocean alongside Negombo, the city of Sri Lanka where he serves the neediest children, especially the young victims of abuse and violence: it is the 45-year journey in the missionary life of Br. Gabriele Garniga, Salesian Coadjutor.

  • Uruguay - "Aristophanes": transmitting a message like Don Bosco used to

    (ANS - Montevideo) - Although not everyone has passed through the doors of a Salesian institute, those who are part of "Aristophanes" feel absolutely part of the example of Don Bosco and try to transmit his values through their art. This is what three members of this parodic theater company claim; they are: Juan Ignacio Cristóbal, Winston Gorgal and Daniel Javier.



    If we wanted to find a metaphor to fully describe the revolution caused to society since the introduction and use of the Internet, we could certainly compare this phenomenon to the discovery of a new planet, a new continent, a territory continuously being explored that we cannot manage to fully fathom, one we  repeatedly marvel at, that surprises us with ever-new aspects and unexpressed potential.


  • RMG - Formation course for new Provincials

    (ANS - Rome) - The formation course for the new Provincials is currently taking place at the Salesian headquarters in Rome. Eight Salesian Provincials from three regions are participating. The Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, will entrust each of them guidelines and a roadmap to empower their roles as guides and animators.


  • Spain - Young people need authentic and credible educators

    (ANS - Madrid) - The Youth Ministry Department of the Spanish Episcopal Conference presented a summary of the contributions received for the next Synod on young people. What is the relationship of young people to the Church? Do favorable environments for vocational discernment exist? What hopes do young people in Europe have today? These are some of the questions asked through a special questionnaire to young people, who say they feel listened to by the Church, but who also ask that more time and more people become involved in listening to their needs.



    Throughout the entire world, I have seen Salesians who defend children and young people from the many Herods of our day and who continue to dream,                                          guided by the angels, just like Don Bosco.
