(ANS - Quito) - On May 2, Fr Agustín Togo and the young Salesian Edwin Cárdenas had the opportunity to wander towards the neighboring village of Peru. The goal was to attend the reception ceremony of the remains of Fr Luigi Bolla in the villages of the Achuar indigenous people. The questions arise almost without thinking about them: "what led you to go on the trip? What experiences have you experienced in such a short time? Which message do you have received after having followed the footsteps of Fr Yankuam Jintia?”
(ANS – Roma) – “From the external point of view nothing changed in my life. As before I was a university student, daughter of my parents, active Catholic as before. But I found a deeper sense of my apostolate and strengthened my union with God and found a sense of belonging to a wider family”. This is how Ms. Olga K., World President of the VDB, explains what changed with her entry into the Secular Institute of the Volunteers of Don Bosco (VDB). On Saturday 20 May the VDB will celebrate the 100th anniversary of their foundation.
(ANS - Bangalore) - "Working on the margins, and especially among street children, helped me stay productive in my missionary life. I learned so much from them." So says Fr George Kollashany, a Salesian of the Bangalore Province in India. Since 1975, he has been working with poor children. With them, he has attended "the best school of life".
