(ANS - Turin) - "Love what the young love, so that they love what you love." This famous maxim of Don Bosco has now been recreated in drawings and colors on the walls around Valdocco, where in the last two weeks a famous street artist, Andrea Sergio, aka "Mr. Wany", painted the story of Don Bosco with his spray cans.

Turin, Italy - 2018 - The life of Don Bosco and his action in favor of the young are now portrayed on a long mural that speaks to the young, to the pilgrims and to the inhabitants of the Valdocco district.

Valdocco, Turin - 1887 - On that sofa and around that lectern Don Bosco spent the last months of his life. There he rested, prayed, worked, received visits and told his secretary the beginnings of the Oratory.

(ANS - Turin) - The beautiful statue of Mary Help of Christians, venerated in the Sanctuary dedicated to her, dates back to 1898. It was the idea of Fr Michele Rua, first successor of Don Bosco, and he wanted it majestic, stately.

  • Mexico - Juan José Bartolomé: "Jesus' preference for children is a sign of God's 'weakness' towards the weakest"

    (ANS - Tlaquepaque) - The biblicist Juan José Bartolomé, Salesian, wrote the book "Jóvenes: fe, vocación, discernimiento. Rezar el tema del Sínodo sobre los jóvenes, a la luz de la Palabra de Dios," i.e. 'Youth: faith, vocation, discernment. Praying the theme of the Synod on young people, in the light of the Word of God.' He explains that the "Synod on young people is not just analyzing the current reality in which they are moving, but seeks to make a real discernment on this present moment of the Church. Therefore it is necessary to go back to the sources, to the Word of God, so that this illuminates reality."


  • "The Holy Spirit gives us the ability to dream"

    The Synod of Bishops on young people began in a difficult and apparently unfavorable context for the Church, amid tensions, disbelief, decline in vocations and open challenges to the Church's teachings on important issues such as the right to life and the role of the Christian faith in the social fabric and in human rights. On the other hand, despite the complex circumstances surrounding this event, a sign of communion and hope is the presence of two continental Chinese bishops who "for the first time" can participate in a Synod.





    “Many of us cannot imagine a life without Don Bosco, without Salesians, and we can attest that without him we wouldn’t have fallen in love with God in a ‘crazy’ way, full of laughter and great experiences.”
