Italy - Start of celebrations in honor of Mary Help of Christians in Turin

24 May 2021

Turin, Italy - May 2021 - Yesterday, May 23, 2021, the celebrations for the Feast Day of Mary Help of Christians began in the Basilica of the same name in Turin. In compliance with the current anti-Covid regulations, Msgr. Cesare Nosiglia, archbishop of Turin, presided over the evening mass at 18:30. Later, at 8.30 pm, the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, presided over the recitation of the Rosary from the courtyard of Valdocco and subsequently offered the Salesian "good night". For the second consecutive year, the celebrations for Mary Help of Christians are marked by the pandemic and also this year we remember the words that Don Bosco addressed to his boys when cholera struck Turin in 1854: “You must remain calm, if you do what I tell you, you will be free from danger.” Let us continue to pray so that the Help of Christians continues to accompany and protect us.
