(ANS - New Delhi) - India's situation in the face of a new wave of Covid-19 infections is worrying at a global level: according to the Indian Ministry of Health, the country today recorded another 3,645 deaths from the coronavirus - a new, very sad record, an increase of more than 350 compared to yesterday - and the total casualties in India since the start of the pandemic thus rise to 204,832.

SPECIAL REPORTS

  • Spain – Greater effort towards decent jobs for young people: request of Salesian organizations

    (ANS - Madrid) - Young people in Spain are more pessimistic about the job situation today than they were a year ago. The pandemic has hit an already disadvantaged social group. Young people today are much more educated than their parents, but they have worse prospects and if they are asked their opinion on their future, their vision goes from strongly negative ("Work today is precarious and hinders the life plans of many people") to those who see the only possibility in their own personal commitment to changing things ("It's a frustrating time but we young people have an obligation to persevere and not give up").

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • THE TRUE RESURRECTION

    The one that touches peoples’ lives and transforms them

    My friends, readers of the Salesian Bulletin, I greet you again with all cordiality by means of this Salesian magazine founded by Don Bosco himself. It was his intention to use this bulletin to convey to the laity the reality of his young Salesian Congregation, which sought to be faithful to God as it was growing little by little. As we read in the 1877 issue, it "is published to give a report of things done or to be done according to the purpose of the Salesian mission, which is the care of souls and the good of civil society."
