At the beginning of the video of the missionary appeal for 2020, which comes a few months after the 150th Missionary Expedition, the Rector Major shows what he himself calls "a real jewel": the book which holds the name of every Salesian confrere who has left as missionary over the years. Holding this precious book, Fr Á.F. Artime makes his appeal, "an enthusiastic missionary appeal and with a strong conviction."
"This is our reality and this is also the identity of our Congregation," the Rector Major tells us. "You know that Don Bosco carried a great missionary passion in his heart." And in the light of this passion, the Successor of Don Bosco addresses the Provinces, his confreres, the whole Congregation, so that they may always be generous and never give up listening to the Lord.
