(ANS - San José- "The family is not chosen," wrote Desmond Tutu,  "because it is a gift of God for you, as you are for each of its members." In fact, we are all born into a family. Pope Francis has already said so several times: "The family is a precious treasure. It must always be supported and protected." For the Salesians of Don Bosco the family is an essential substance in the formative process and throughout one's lifetime. The Salesian community of the Casa de la Salud, in Costa Rica, in the context of the care and accompaniment of elderly Salesians, received family members of its guests.

(ANS - Aleppo) - Syria is entering its ninth year of war this month, a war that has changed the lives of nearly 20 million people. The bombs no longer fall on the main cities and there are not as many people on the run as before, but one certainly cannot say there is peace and reconstruction has only just begun. The economic interests of the major powers have turned the country into a powder keg and into a crusade against jihadist terrorism, with more than 500,000 dead, more than 1.5 million injured and over 5 million refugees.

(ANS - Rome) - “When we received the ashes on our heads, on Wednesday of the beginning of Lent, we did not imagine that this climate of 'Holy Saturday' where everything is suspended would make itself felt earlier, a time when silence dominates and the sense of emptiness makes the setting unreal. Yet even Holy Saturday experiences a not desperate anguish, but confident; as believers we know that the victory over death and pain is certain, even if only Easter day will be fully participated." These are the words of Fr Roberto Dal Molin, President of "Salesiani per il Sociale APS", which frame the situation being experienced in Italy and in various other countries of the world due to the spread of the coronavirus.

  • Brazil – How Don Bosco "fished"for his young people

    (ANS - São Paulo) - Don Bosco's vocational journey, as in all vocational paths, was not all easy, carefree or to be taken for granted. Doubts and difficulties were present in his maturation and decision-making process. Don Bosco also had doubts. He dreamed of becoming a Franciscan. He persistently wondered what his mission would be, where he should carry out his pastoral task. His life was marked by indecisions and uncertainty, but in the midst of his life he knew that there was a "medicine" that God sent him: it was Father Cafasso, his spiritual director.
