(ANS - Argentina) - Argentina is suffering from the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, but the Salesians have not been standing still. In different parts of the country, Salesian works are dealing with the health and social emergency: they prepare and deliver meals, produce alcoholic gels and masks, bring supplies to poor families. The message sent by the Rector Major - "I believe these are moments to be lived with a great sensitivity towards the poor" - has permeated the whole Salesian Family in the world.

(ANS - Rome) - The Salesians are preparing for the worst case scenario. Warned of the situation in Europe, those who participated in the 28th General Chapter in Turin, once they returned home, voluntarily placed themselves in quarantine. Some communities have suffered Salesian losses due to Covid-19, especially in Spain and Italy where there have been communities with many infected and hospitalizations. All over the world, the Salesian communities have suspended normal activities. They have closed courtyards, playgrounds, temples, classrooms; but they haven't locked themselves in. They continue to take care of young people and people in difficulty, they continue to take care of them, to help and to accompany.

(ANS - Rome) - In the celebration of the World Advisory Council (Consulta) of the Salesian Family, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, invited to prepare a new edition of the book "The Salesian Family of Don Bosco", considering also that the previous edition of the year 2000 was by now outdated, deprived as it was of the presence of the new groups that had in the meantime entered the Family of Don Bosco. Fr Á.F. Artime also pointed out how this ecclesial entity had made a long and rich journey, with very significant changes. For this reason it seemed not only appropriate, but also necessary to produce a new edition of this precious volume, now finally available.

  • Brazil – How Don Bosco "fished"for his young people

    (ANS - São Paulo) - Don Bosco's vocational journey, as in all vocational paths, was not all easy, carefree or to be taken for granted. Doubts and difficulties were present in his maturation and decision-making process. Don Bosco also had doubts. He dreamed of becoming a Franciscan. He persistently wondered what his mission would be, where he should carry out his pastoral task. His life was marked by indecisions and uncertainty, but in the midst of his life he knew that there was a "medicine" that God sent him: it was Father Cafasso, his spiritual director.
