(ANS - Cordoba) - Argentina, the first destination of Salesian missionaries, is a large, beautiful and varied land.

(ANS - Panama City) - It has oft been said that marriage is a common alliance that should last a lifetime. This is why thousands of people make their vows and decide to get married. But making a marriage work is much more difficult than simply getting married. Thus with time difficulties arise and the lack of formation and openness to God make love and couples break apart.

Arriving in Buenos Aires, they were entrusted with the care of a newly built church dedicated to the "Mater Misericordiae", which immediately became the reference point for emigrants in Argentina, and the "Marian base" from which the Spiritual Sons of Don Bosco started the evangelization of Patagonia.

(ANS - Cordoba) – While you're reading this article, think of the pleasant situations you've lived with your friends: a beer shared, a chat full of jokes, a moment of silence in a park ... There are so many that I hope you don't remember them all! Today, perhaps, friendship is very different from what it was before because there are the constraints proper to the era of social networks. Hence, a meeting in the park has now become a conversation on WhatsApp until dawn, a story on Instagram is a message for one's birthday, a direct message on Twitter is to notify you of something ... They are the new languages of friendship.
