MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR
The one that touches peoples’ lives and transforms them
My friends, readers of the Salesian Bulletin, I greet you again with all cordiality by means of this Salesian magazine founded by Don Bosco himself. It was his intention to use this bulletin to convey to the laity the reality of his young Salesian Congregation, which sought to be faithful to God as it was growing little by little. As we read in the 1877 issue, it "is published to give a report of things done or to be done according to the purpose of the Salesian mission, which is the care of souls and the good of civil society."
«‘Salesian’ is synonymous with ‘living for others.’ This is how we know our Salesians here. Thus they are. Thus they live».
«This is my prayer after having visited over 100 nations around the world where there are Salesian presences... and where I came to know realities that are so incredible, fascinating, precious, and often times so painful».
(ANS - Rome) - On the occasion of the Feast Day of Don Bosco, yesterday, 31 January, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, offered his traditional message to young people. The central theme for this year’s message, given the circumstances the entire world is experiencing, is to look upon the world with a gaze of joy and hope for life, Christian and Salesianly inspired.
