(ANS - Kyiv) - The story of Maksym Ryabukha, Rector of the Salesian house "Mary Help of Christians", on the outskirts of the Ukrainian capital, highlights the pain of a population exhausted by the bombardments: “After the two-day curfew, on Monday there were endless lines to get all the basic necessities. People are afraid, but they resist.” The story of a priest who celebrates Mass in a bunker becomes a sign of hope.
(ANS - Rome) - On the day Vatican Radio celebrated its 91 years of service to evangelization and communication, last Saturday, February 12, Fr Giuseppe Costa, SDB, co-spokesman of the Salesian Congregation, was interviewed by the radio station where he spoke about communication and the Church. Interviewed by Father Vito Magno, RCI, Father Costa shared his vision on themes well-known to him, starting from his latest book, fresh off the press, "Girovagando tra cronache ed eventi. Quarant’anni di giornalismo - Wandering among chronicles and events. Forty years of journalism", published by Nema Press.
(ANS - Rome) - The recent cases of fatal accidents on the job, at work, involving young people during alternating dual school-work programs have rekindled the debate on the advisability of having students carry out training experiences in private companies. To the point that some have called for the abolition of alternating school-work and any other activity that sees students in close contact with the business world. A short-sighted vision that, as Fr Fabrizio Bonalume, Director General of the Centro Nazionale Opere Salesiane - Formazione e Aggiornamento Professionale, or CNOS-FAP, the Vocational Training sector of the National Center of Salesian Works, explains, does not take into account the variety and richness of these courses, which the Salesians have been offering for over a century and a half.
