(ANS - Shillong) - With around 4,000 new cases of people infected with COVID-19 every 24 hours these last few days, India has extended its lockdown again until May 31, even though the different States can now autonomously modulate the rules which concern, for example, the opening of some shops, resumption of productive activities, the daily behavior of citizens. Of course, there is still a need for people like Deep Gurung, people who roll up their sleeves to help those who suffer most from the confinement measures imposed.

  • We are a tapestry of stories

    One of the most beautiful experiences we live as educators is when a young person approaches us during the day and asks us for a minute because he must confide something important to us: “Father, I'm in love, I'm the happiest person in the world. I really wanted to tell you because you are an important person for me.” His face has a strange luminosity, the words overlap, there is agitation and then silence. They await our reply. Sometimes they just wait until we tell them that we are happy and that we share their joy, a word of encouragement. The magic of the moment is felt. And heard.

    What a teenager needs most is being “listened to, heard”.

  • Chile – When our frailty becomes viral: the God to whom we cry does not abandon us!

    (ANS - Santiago) - "Do you think what is happening with coronavirus in the world will happen here too?" I remember a colleague asked me about it on Friday 13 March 2020. Two days earlier the World Health Organization (WHO) had officially declared a pandemic as cases had already been reported in 114 countries on four continents. The virus was identified as Sars-Cov-2, and its effects are the acute respiratory disease Covid-19.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • THE GREATEST OF ALL IS LOVE

    "In moments of difficult trials such as these, it is love that gives us life"

    Dear Friends and Readers of the Salesian Bulletin:

    Receive my cordial greeting at a time when all our minds are overwhelmed. I am writing these words on April 1st, thinking about the month of May, the month of our Mother. We have entrusted ourselves to her throughout the Salesian world during this very painful period of the Covid-19, or “coronavirus”, pandemic. From all parts of the world, we have raised up prayers – and continue to do so – to ask the Lord through the intercession of our Mother for help and comfort in these terrible hours for us all, with the loss of so many lives, even while knowing that later, also, there will be other difficulties that we will have to face.
