RMG – Rector Major's message at the end of GC28

23 March 2020

(ANS - Rome) - "Finding us here, in Valdocco, in our cradle, here where we were all born in Don Bosco, made this Chapter very special." Thus the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, at the end of the 28th General Chapter, wanted to greet the Salesian Family.

The Rector Major has entrusted a video message with several reflections and considerations on the recently concluded General Chapter; a General Chapter which, as stated by Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, will be remembered "truly as special". What certainly contributed to making this Chapter so special were the young people who took part in it and who simply asked the Salesians to continue to make their presence felt.

And in this video message, the Rector Major wished to encourage the whole Salesian Family to persevere in the Faith in these difficult times in which a virus "speaks to us of our fragility" and "can truly show us that we are not omnipotent."

The full video is available in the different language channels of ANSChannel.
