A MISSIONARY DREAM THAT LIVES ON

The dream to which I refer, my dear friends of the Salesian charism, is the great missionary dream of Don Bosco. Even in the very first years of the foundation of the fragile, little Society of St. Francis de Sales (the Salesians), he sent out his first missionaries to Argentina (in the year 1875) with the intention of caring for the Italian immigrants who had reached those shores by the thousands.

In 1875, Don Bosco gathered around him a group of ten young people who were about to cross the Atlantic, a journey that for some would be without return. It was 4.00 pm, the shrine of Mary Help of Christians was full of people. At the foot of the image of Mary Help of Christians, Don Bosco greeted the young people soon departing with tears. He gave everyone a gift, a leaflet with "twenty special memories", memories of a father to those about to leave before the final embrace, writes Fr Ceria, symbol of his deep affection.

(ANS - Turin) - Yesterday, 29 September, the Rector Major of the Salesians, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, presided at the Eucharistic celebration of the 150th Missionary Expedition during which he consigned the missionary cross to 36 Salesians and 13 Daughters of Mary Help of Christians in the presence of his Vicar, Fr Francesco Cereda, of the General Councilor for the Missions, Fr Guillermo Basañes, the Mother General of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, Mother Yvonne Reungoat, and Sr. Alaíde Deretti, Councilor for the Missions.

Rome, Italy - September 2019 - The 32 Salesian missionaries who are participating in the missionary orientation course, and who will be part of the 150th Salesian Missionary Expedition, visited the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Rome on September 13th.

Rome, Italy - September 2019 - 150th Salesian Missionary Expedition: Jesus' appeal "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation" (Mk 16:15) continues to find answers, thanks also to the participation of 36 Salesians who will announce the Good News in the style of Don Bosco.
