MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

FOUR BOYS AND A DREAM

A tiny piece of paper written on by a 17-year old boy, and the most moving and precious moment of our history.

Merry Christmas to all of you friends of Don Bosco’s charism. I’m writing this greeting to you a few hours after returning to Rome from visiting Nepal and the Salesian province of Shillong in beautiful Northeast India.

A MISSIONARY DREAM THAT LIVES ON

The dream to which I refer, my dear friends of the Salesian charism, is the great missionary dream of Don Bosco. Even in the very first years of the foundation of the fragile, little Society of St. Francis de Sales (the Salesians), he sent out his first missionaries to Argentina (in the year 1875) with the intention of caring for the Italian immigrants who had reached those shores by the thousands.

THE DANCE OF THE BRONZE CHILDREN

The monument to Don Bosco in front of the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in Valdocco is a symbol of the Salesian mission in the world.
