On the afternoon of May 1, the 10th Successor of Don Bosco celebrated Mass in the Church of Mary Help of Christians, and welcomed the Religious Profession of Salesian Brother Sergio Paredes.
Previously, at the institute "Mons. Lasagna", there was a meeting with young people. For two hours, hundreds of young people had the opportunity to speak with Fr Á.F. Artime, ask him their questions and express their dreams and concerns. "Do not be afraid to find out what God wants from you because when you do good, you find the way of your happiness," said the Rector Major, his thoughts for the young.
Before the many young people who feel confused and disappointed because they walk in life without being able to recognize the presence of God in their lives, the message of Fr Á.F. Artime was able to break through to the hearts of the children, so much so that one commented: "I met the Rector Major in person: he is truly a faithful mirror-image of Don Bosco."
Yesterday, Wednesday 2 May, the Rector Major met with Fr Néstor Ledesma, Provincial of the Province of Paraguay, and his Council. Then he joined the Salesian Agro-Pastoral Institute "Carlos Pfannl" of Coronel Oviedo, a Salesian center bearing the name of one of its benefactors, founded March 24, 1954, which also houses a vast parish dedicated to Mary Help of Christians.
