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.

  • 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.
