MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

It is most certain that Don Bosco is alive today, alive in so many different realities where thousands and thousands of people carry his dream forward, in the name of Jesus.  And he is still alive because he continues to be their inspiration.

CHRISTMAS JUST LIKE DON BOSCO'S

Throughout the entire world, I have seen Salesians who defend children and young people from the many Herods of our day and who continue to dream,                                          guided by the angels, just like Don Bosco.

I chose this enigmatic title for my greeting this month because I want to make reference to one Salesian who spent 18 months in captivity and another 34 SDBs and FMAs who will leave for the missions in various parts of the world. Ever since the very first one on November 11, 1875, there have been 148 missionary expeditions for our Salesian Family. These evoke the profound feeling that grace is at work.

I shall never forget the wise life lesson which the fir trees of the beautiful forest of Vallombrosa gave me. My cordial greetings, dear readers, and all the members of our dear Salesian Family. I wish to offer you a reflection that I made from a very concrete experience that I had recently – a lesson from nature.
