(ANS - Brasilia) - The main Christian holiday celebrates the resurrection of Christ: the victory of the Lord over death fills us with hope for a new life. For this reason, this celebration is surrounded by very special traditions and symbols. On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate what is at the center of their faith: Jesus Christ has conquered death and is risen! It is a message of love that is unprecedented and fills us with hope: it invites us to pass from darkness to light, from hatred to love, from selfishness to fraternity, from isolation to community, from sadness to joy.

Happy Easter!

Christ is alive! He is our hope, and in a wonderful way he brings youth to our world, and everything he touches becomes young, new, full of life.

Happy Easter!

Palm Sunday worldwide

In Salesian works throughout the world, Palm Sunday was celebrated yesterday, with which Holy Week begins. Many young people and children participated in the traditional blessing of palm and olive branches, the procession and the Holy Mass. Here are some of the most beautiful photos, immortalized by Salesians around the world, which show how this important day was celebrated.

(ANS - Seville) - In the world of the Salesian Confraternities or Brotherhoods (Hermandades and Cofradías) the liturgical time of the commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus occupies a privileged place, because it combines devotion, social action and the protagonism of the young. On the entire territory of Spain, there are today about 30 entities of the faithful, dependent on the respective archdioceses, and born, largely, in the channel of the Associations of the Past Pupils of Don Bosco.

EASTER IN PALABEK

Don Bosco has arrived in the refugee camp of Palabek, Uganda. This is good news of the RESURRECTION OF THE LORD.

(ANS - Madrid) - This year there will again be more than 2,000 young people from the Salesian environments throughout Spain who will participate in the Easter meetings organized by Salesians in different areas of the country from March 29 to April 1, Resurrection Sunday. The two Provinces of the Salesians in Spain - "Mary Help of Christians" and "St. James Major" - have prepared these meetings so participants can truly celebrate the most important events of Christianity: the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

EDITORIAL

  • Where your heart is, there is your treasure

    The novel "Brave New World", written in 1932, is undoubtedly one of the literary visions that most clearly anticipate the events we are experiencing. Its author, Aldous Huxley, realized that to make a mass production system work instead of subjugating people by force, it was necessary to do so by delivering small but constant rewards. People should have the illusion of happiness in consumption, so as to be willing to sacrifice their own freedom as well.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • THE HOLY SPIRIT IS STILL AT WORK

    ST. FRANCIS XAVIER AND DON BOSCO. TWO GREAT MISSIONARIES YESTERDAY AND TODAY .  Just a short while ago I was in Goa, India, where I saw how amid the palm trees and the fine sand of the sea there rise up cathedrals and churches built during the 16th and 17th centuries. One of these shrines is the Basilica of the Good Jesus, which has become a site for pilgrimages, especially for Christians but also for believers of other religions, because here lie the remains of St. Francis Xavier, the missionary from Navarre who evangelized the Far East and was a disciple of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits. Even though St. Francis Xavier died in China in 1552, his remains rest in this most beautiful basilica situated next to the cathedral and to the church of St. Francis of Assisi. This place in which his mortal remains rest was erected between 1594 and 1605. His body is conserved there. Its incorruptibility was the miracle for which St. Francis Xavier was canonized in 1622. Accompanied by other Salesians and some lay persons, I had the privilege of celebrating Holy Mass on the altar at the tomb of this great and holy Jesuit missionary.
