22 October 2022

(ANS – Mumbai) - The second day of the visit of the tenth successor of Don Bosco, unfolded with the Eucharistic Celebration with all the Rectors, followed by the interaction with the youth.  

More than 350 youth from various institutions of the Province had gathered around the Rector Major to listen to him and interact with him. In his message to the youth, he exhorted them to keep alive the flame of faith and true love in their hearts. He said, “‘Salesians are born for the youth. They are here for you, and that want to help you to be your best selves. I am glad that so many of you young people have come from far off places. Don Bosco will be truly delighted to see all of you”. He then interacted with the youth; answering their questions patiently.

This was followed by a cultural programme wherein he witnessed the beauty of the cultures of the Mumbai Province through the variety of dance performances. The programme culminated with a special performance by the Rector Major which indeed struck a chord with the young people. They were filled with enthusiasm and joy to see the tenth successor of Don Bosco entertaining them.
