(ANS - Buenos Aires) - Photographer, cartographer and tireless explorer, the Salesian Fr Alberto De Agostini landed in Punta Arenas, in the Chilean Patagonia, in 1910. He settled in that region and for almost fifty years he explored the southern territories of Chile and Argentina. A staunch defender of Indigenous peoples, he was the first cartographer of that land and left a legacy printed in travel guides, chronicles and impressive photographs.

(ANS - Santiago el Estero) - The oratory of Santiago del Estero continues to advance its project "Jóvenes campesinos, hacia una participación responsable y sustentable" (Young farmers, towards responsible and sustainable participation). The project has been carried out since 2018 at the Salesian house with a basic training in environmental matters that includes workshops, separate waste collection and the creation of agro-ecological gardens - an element of success that is now intended to be extended to every home.

(ANS - Buenos Aires) - This is a nice reflection on the vivid memory of the five young Oratorians of Poznan, Poland, and on the celebration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Remembering in this technological time is something difficult, given that Google already has subtracted us this ability to remember. On the other hand, the work of remembrance urges us to recover the Salesian youthful spirituality of five young people who lived following Jesus fully.

(ANS - Buenos Aires) - His name is Luis Mancini. He was born in Buenos Aires and has been an actor since his grandmother took him to theater festivals at the age of seven. At sixteen he was already acting in some companies and starting to specialize in this art. Until one day Luis, the son of a Catholic mother and an atheist father, transformed himself, on film, into Artemide Zatti, a man who would mark him forever.

(ANS - Rosario) - In Rosario, Mary dresses as a Help of Christians. The Salesian community of the Sacred Heart of Jesus accompanies the families of Ludueña and Barrio Industrial in this socio-health-related emergency. Latin America is now the continent with the highest number of sick people; Brazil is second for the highest number of infected and deceased people due to Covid-19. In Argentina, 23,620 cases of infection have so far been confirmed, 693 dead, with 7,305 people healed; thus, the quarantine has been extended until 28 June and, meanwhile, poverty continues to increase.

  • FALLING STARS FORCE US TO LOOK AT THE SKY

    We would spend hours, as children, with eyes that searched the dark sky to catch and surprise falling stars. They said to us, "When you see a falling star, make a wish." But it is always sad to see a star that detaches itself from the sky and falls. Where do falling stars go?
