(ANS - San José) - "Saints are not supermen; they are not born perfect. When they met the love of God, they followed Him, at the service of others," Pope Francis once explained. This message adapts well to the figure of the blessed Sr Maria Romero, a religious of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA) who dedicated herself to serving the poor in Costa Rica for 46 years serving in medical clinics, and in youth boarding houses with the Association of Aid to the Needy made up of families who previously lived in inhumane conditions. Forty years since her death, her life still acts as a valid testimony.

  • RMG - Amiability, Salesian joy

    (ANS - Rome) - In our world, in our families, with those around us we need amiability; more so with young people. We need to ask it as a gift, and to increase it as a virtue and through gestures that favor communication, relationships and make God's love evident. It all begins with a kind word, or a subtle, kind, courteous, loving detail.
