Not only for the provinces of China, Indonesia (St. Louis Versiglia) and East Timor (St. Callisto Caravario) - but for the whole Salesian Congregation, this year is a good opportunity to treasure the memory of our first two martyrs - St Louis Versiglia and St Callisto Caravario - 90 years after their death in China and 20 years after their canonization at the Vatican. Because the martyrs' memory lifts the missionary spirit!
Fr. Gilbert Choondal SDB has gifted the Church yet with another series of the Stations, Stations of Creation, a reflective, prayerful, and practical devotional expression to bring to life the teachings of Pope Francis in Laudato Si’.
