  • What do the young people of the Salesians think?

    A few days ago I saw a group of young people in St. Peter's Square in Rome with the flag of one of our Salesian schools. I was struck by the affectionate and cheerful relationship of the children with their teachers and, on the contrary, by the coldness with which they treated the Salesian who was with them: they did not talk to him, they did not approach him ... The Salesian walked alone. For them, he did not exist, he was a ghost.



  • RMG - Don Bosco is always current

    (ANS - Rome) - Many elements that are traditionally associated with the figure of Don Bosco, such as the oratory, educational institutes or vocational training schools, were not his inventions. And yet nothing of what Don Bosco took and reinterpreted remained the same after his passage: with what were already known elements, he was able to create universally appreciated models that have remained valid over the centuries – still as current and young as he is.
