(ANS - Caracas) - Venezuela has been going through a very difficult political and social situation in recent times. Pope Francis recently said, referring to Venezuela: "I pray for this people, who are very dear to me, and I urge everyone to persevere without growing tired, avoiding any violence and seeking political solutions." On 19 April, peaceful demonstrations took place in the country to deliver to the 'Defensoría del Pueblo', the state agency that oversees human rights, a document accusing the government of President Nicolás Maduro of a coup d'état against the National Assembly.  On the margins of the events, two Salesian past pupils were killed.

  • Mexico – Kindness matters

    (ANS – Tijuana) – Between May 2016 and January 2017, a Haitian tsunami hit Tijuana. These migrants arrived dizzy, exhausted, cold, hungry, and broke after their threemonth land journey from Brazil. Some were sick. Some had delivered babies or miscarried en route. Some had buried their dead along the way or watched helplessly as loved ones were swept away by swollen rivers. Some left their dead to rot in the woods. Some were stripsearched, robbed, raped, or exploited as they traveled through Central America.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • WHY WE HAVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE

    My thought goes to the Salesian presences around the world because our dream is that they might be true dispensers of life to so many young people, and a life in abundance, an authentic, true life which gives them dignity and helps them also experience the great gift that God is in their lives.
