(ANS - Lima) – Fr Jorge Mauchi is a Salesian of the Province of Peru (PER) creator of one of the best known drawings of Don Bosco's face. It's a very simple work of art, with bold strokes depicting the gentle, serene and peaceful face of the Saint of Youth. Today the Province is launching an exhibition of Fr Mauchi’s works of art, as a tribute to his extraordinary and interesting career as an artist from 1955.

(ANS - Antananarivo) - Although for many it is best known as a tourist destination, Madagascar is also one of the poorest countries in the world, where half the population is forced to survive on less than 100 Ariary (about 3 cents) per day, and three-quarters of the Malagasy live in slums. In such a situation, the opportunity that the Salesians offers young Malagasy in the Notre Dame de Clairvaux Centre is even more valuable.

  • What plot, Lord, are you weaving?

    On a day of protests and clashes in Venezuela, two young people were assassinated. Carlos José Moreno Barón was killed while on his way to a football pitch.  He did not reach his destination. Paola Ramírez Gómez, 23, was killed while returning from a job interview as she was passing in front of San Carlos Square in San Cristóbal. Neither of them was participating in the protests.



  • 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.



    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.
