  • Communicating in the network: a language to learn again

    It is a fact that digital communication is a challenge for the Church. In the last Synod of Bishops, the network is spoken of as a space of evangelization, like a continent to explore, like a new place to live. The old "information highways" have now become true "constellations of content", with about 1,400 million websites on the network and their number grows exponentially, while every day new virtual communities of meetings and discussions arise according to the different tastes and needs of people.



  • Peru - Lessons left by Fr Ugo de Censi

    (ANS - Lima) - We cannot but be more grateful and, at the same time, saddened by the departure of Fr Ugo de Censi, who leaves us a bit orphans. But we know that he is in the Oratory of Heaven, next to Don Bosco, illuminated by the luminous face of that God he so desired.



    I am writing to you, my dear friends, just a few hours after having bestowed the missionary cross on a group of ten Daughters of Mary Help of Christians and twenty-five Salesians of Don Bosco who will leave in this 149th missionary expedition. We count the number of expeditions from the very first one prepared by Don Bosco himself for November 11, 1875. On that occasion, the first ten Salesian missionaries were sent to Argentina: six young priests and four Salesian brothers. Those first ones have been followed by about 11,000 Salesians and 2,500 Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, 2,000 of them Italian FMAs who left Europe for the world.
