(ANS - Dilla) - "I have seen once again that as the Salesian Family we were born to be close, ever closer to the poor," said the Rector Major during his visit to Ethiopia. When I think of this country the two things that come to my mind are poverty and famine. To these two problems we can add a third which is drought. This year’s drought is "among the most serious of the last three decades, generating a vicious circle which leaves 10.2 million people exposed to a severe food crisis."

(ANS - Rome) - "Loving poverty is solidarity, sharing and charity and is expressed in moderation, in the quest for justice and in taking joy in the essential." So said Pope Francis in a message of 8 March 2014. The Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, took that as his starting point in the talk he gave yesterday at the 87th Bi-annual Assembly of the Union of Superiors General, which ends today, Friday 27 May, at the Salesianum in Rome.

(ANS - Mixes) – On Tuesday 24 May, the Apostolic Nuncio to Mexico, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, and Archbishop José Luis Chávez Botello of Antequera-Oaxaca, participated in the Eucharistic celebration to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Prelature of the Mixes in the municipality of San Pedro y San Pablo Ayutla in northern Sierra. Its current bishop, since 2007, is the Salesian Hector Guerrero Córdoba. From the beginning the prelature was assigned to the Salesians who are working in the missions to the Mixes in the indigenous area.

  • Democratic Republic of the Congo - Ishara's story, a boy in the street

    (ANS - Bukavu) - In their message of last May 13, the Bishops of Northern and Southern Kivu, members of the Provincial Episcopal Assembly of Bukavu, once again denounced: "The number of street children are growing at an alarming rate." The Salesians active in Bukavu, such as Fr Piero Gavioli, deal with this situation on a daily basis: not statistical data, but real children, innocent victims. On the example of their founder, the Children of Don Bosco still succeed in giving hope, dignity and opportunities for the future.
