(ANS - Kandi) - In many parts of the world school has become a place for the elite who have economic opportunities. Research done by UNESCO contains some distressing data: "In the world there are 124 million children and young people who are not in school: 52.9 million in sub-Saharan Africa, 50.9 million in Asia and the Pacific, 6.6 million in America, Latin America and the Caribbean, 8.7 million in the Arab States and 5 million scattered in other parts of the world." For the Salesians this situation constitutes a call to think and to work on what Don Bosco did for the needy and poor youth, which was to educate them.

(ANS - Hong Kong) - While Pope Francis in St Peter's Square was reminding the teenagers who had come to celebrate the Youth Jubilee that "happiness is not an app that is downloaded on the mobile phone", in Hong Kong other boys and girls were celebrating their "Jubilee of Mercy – Teens Carnival" in a party that, even though it was thousands of kilometres away, had the same ingredients: joy, excitement, spirituality and sharing.

(ANS - Massey) – It says in Canon Law: "The parish is a certain community of faithful stably established within a particular Church, whose pastoral care is entrusted (...) to a pastor as its own shepherd." The parish is the first field of pastoral action for the Sons of Don Bosco in many of the more than 130 countries where the Salesian Congregation has spread. For example, in New Zealand, the Salesians minister in two parishes, Massey and Avondale, two suburbs of the major city of Auckland.

    Diary of a Happy and Blessed Missionary Day

    Dear friends , I’m writing to you from Meruri in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. I write this greeting almost as if it were a journalistic report, because it has been only 24 hours since I arrived in the middle of this Brazilian state.
