(ANS - San José) - It was May 29, 1989, when Sister Maria Romero Meneses, Daughter of Mary Help of Christians, was given, posthumously, the title of honorary citizen of Costa Rica, because of her exceptional services rendered to the Republic by the religious. To celebrate this honorary citizen, great FMA and blessed of the Catholic Church, last Sunday, 7 July, the city of San José held a large procession, which gathered thousands of faithful around her relics, in memory of this nun who spent 46 years of her life in the country at the service of the poor and the needy.

(ANS - Santiago) - According to a study by the Ministry of Social Development and the Family, "at the end of 2018 there were 547 children and adolescents living or having lived in a street situation during the last year." In this matter, the Minister for Social Development, Alfredo Moreno, also said that "it is very difficult to remove all the people from the street, but with children it must be done absolutely." The "Fundación Don Bosco" of Chile works and is committed precisely to these children.

(ANS - Port Moresby) - "During my visits to our communities in the Decanate of Pomio, individuals and groups of people have repeatedly asked me to speak for them, to speak on behalf of those who have no voice ... The problems in question are not easy to resolve, but I have always believed that with good will and dialogue a solution for the common good was possible ... A solution, that is, of solidarity based on a preferential option for the poorest of our brothers and sisters." With these words of a true Salesian, last Friday, 5 July, Msgr. Francesco Panfilo, SDB, archbishop of Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, introduced his speech to the Institute of Catholic Theology of Bomana, at Port Moresby, in which he illustrated the advocacy action carried out by his archdiocese towards the indigenous population of Pomio.
