(ANS - Yangon) - "Freedom to believe and follow one’s conscience in determining one's faith is a sacred principle that is violated in Asia at the present time, not only in theocratic societies, but also in democratic countries where there are persecutions against minorities.”  So said the Salesian Cardinal Charles Maung Bo, Archbishop of Yangon, speaking at the launch of a book on the situation of religious minorities in Asian countries.

(ANS - Vatican City) – On Sunday 16 October Pope Francis added seven new witnesses to the catalogue of saints. Among them was St Lodovico Pavoni (1784-1849) from Brescia in Northern Italy. Lodovico Pavoni realized that the education of young people was the most urgent need of his time. The figure of Pavoni is of a saint who made a great impact by his work on behalf of youth and persons most in need of support (deaf, disabled, orphans, and the poor) while also contributing to the renewal of contemplative life. His story is very relevant in this jubilee year, because the founder of the Sons of Mary Immaculate was an authentic witness of God's mercy to the younger generation.

(ANS - Santa Cruz) – When it was announced that the last Mass in the Equipetrol chapel would be celebrated on 16 October, thousands of faithful began to write messages of thanks to Fr Yohane Bosco Kurahashi, a Salesian priest from Japan. He came to Bolivia on 22 February 1980 and since then, with his charisma, he has made many friends. Now they will miss his Masses enlivened with all the musical instruments he could play, among them the harmonica, saxophone, trumpet and accordion.

EDITORIAL

  • THE DARK FACE OF INTERNET

    If we wanted to find a metaphor to fully describe the revolution caused to society since the introduction and use of the Internet, we could certainly compare this phenomenon to the discovery of a new planet, a new continent, a territory continuously being explored that we cannot manage to fully fathom, one we  repeatedly marvel at, that surprises us with ever-new aspects and unexpressed potential.
