(ANS - Rome) - It is now over 10 months since Fr Thomas Uzhunnalil SDB was kidnapped in Yemen. From the beginning, the Congregation and the Salesian Family were incessantly urged to pray for his release. Now, trusting in the intercession of the Mother of the Saviour, they invite everyone to include this special intention in the novena to Mary Help of Christians from 15 to 23 January in preparation for the monthly commemoration on 24 January 2017.

(ANS - Madrid) - The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA) in Spain number 700 Sisters in 61 communities in four provinces.  From 5 August 2017 they will all belong to the new Province of Spain under the protection of Mary Help of Christians and based in Madrid.

(ANS - Castel Sant'Elia) - Children represent the true Christian identity models, especially for those who put themselves at the service of the Kingdom of God. This is a concept that was well illustrated by the Salesian Pudumai Jesu Doss, Dean of Canon Law at the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome, during a meeting held at the Shrine of Castel Sant'Elia (Viterbo), from 27 to 29 December 2016. The meeting was organized by the Italo-Swiss Province of "Mary Queen of Angels" of the Congregation of Saint Michael the Archangel (Michaelites), the 21st group of the Salesian Family.

EDITORIAL

  • Living Christmas in the Salesian Style

    Current times are times of crisis. They present situations that regretfully are in contrast with the festive message of Christmas and that, naturally, are greatly disheartening. The message of the Gospel invites us to celebrate Christmas with a different view of reality and to be filled with hope in this time we are living. This is what we express through our Christmas wishes, when for instance we tell our friends “May the light of Christ illumine us”, “May the mystery of love flood your lives” or when we speak of the “great feast of sharing”.

    It is appropriate that these expressions we repeat every year may be understood in their true meaning.
