(ANS - Aleppo) - On 26-27 February, some 70 young people from the Salesian Oratory in Aleppo staged a musical entitled "Lord of the Colours", written by Fr Pier Jabloyan, SDB, and Majed Zrek, a Salesian Cooperator. It tells the story of a city that has experienced a great and terrible war which has forced its inhabitants to close their eyes so as not to see the terrible things that were happening… until the Lord of the Colours comes. 

(Vatican City) - On 18 February 2016, during the Special Meeting of the Theological Consultors, a positive opinion was given (9 votes out of 9) on the reputation of holiness and the exercise of heroic virtues of the Servant of God José Wech Vandor (1909-1979).

  • Italy – A Salesian on the front line of the war in Ukraine: "Being close counts, words come later"

    (ANS - Rome) - As he tells with a gentleness that does not seem to come from horror, he is "resting a little bit" in Rome these days. Fr Oleh Ladnyuk is a Ukrainian Salesian priest who is a military chaplain at the front, among the soldiers who fight in defence of their country and among the civilians who for over two years have seen their lives wiped out. He brings humanitarian aid where the missiles fall and from those places he helps with the evacuation of young people and adults - so far at least 500 people, but there are probably many more. These days the Salesian – who carries out his ministry in Dnipro and teaches History in a state school in the city – is in Rome to take part with two other priests and a dozen lay people from his country in the "Accompanying when Trauma Hits" course hosted by the Pontifical Salesian University in collaboration with the Faculty of Educational Sciences, with the DON BOSCO NEL MONDO Foundation and the Don Bosco Network. A project that aims to provide theoretical and methodological tools to deal with the traumas caused by war.

This week, a heartfelt plea from Myanmar reached our community, shedding light on the heart-wrenching death of a young girl Juliet in a military airstrike, prompting a unified call for prayers and action.

    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.
