AFTER THE TSUNAMI

The pandemic has changed the way in which we relate with the world, others, and ourselves. We need to rebuild and to begin again in greater solidarity and with greater awareness so as to rebound from a silent calamity marked by pain, confinement, struggle, and fear. What would Don Bosco do if he were alive today?

(ANS - Rome) - The third session of the Formation and Accompaniment Course for recently appointed Provincials in 2021 ended yesterday, Wednesday 13 October.

Genzano di Roma, Italy - October 2021 - On 8 October, the novices of the Salesian Novitiate of Genzano - two Croatians, one Cape Verdean, two Italians and two Spaniards - one month after the beginning of their experience, received a visit from the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime. It was a nice meeting, to get to know each other, to celebrate Mass and to pray together. On this occasion the novices presented the Rector Major with their motto and the symbol that accompanies it: "On your Word I will cast my nets" (Lk 5:5).

(ANS - Rome) - - Formation in order to be SALESIAN PASTORS TODAY" is not only the title of the fourth Programmatic Line that the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, has delivered to the Congregation for the sexennium 2020-2026; rather, it is a fundamental element in defining the Salesian of Don Bosco for the young people of today. This is why, a few weeks after the online publication of the fourth video of the feature series "It's time for Chapter 28", it seems opportune to go back to deepen, with the contribution of those responsible for Salesian Formation, some of the numerous ideas that the Rector Major disseminates in that video.

The General Chapter, with the theme “Renewed by the Spirit of the Risen Lord: All Together for Our Common Home” is called to explore new ways of mission, community,  and religious life.
