(ANS – Port-au-Prince) – Salesian students at six Salesian centers in Haiti have access to better nutrition thanks to a recent grant from the U.S Agency for International Development (USAID). Salesian Missions, the U.S. development arm of the Salesians of Don Bosco headquartered in New Rochelle, N.Y., received the grant for its Hunger for Education USAID International Food Relief Partnership project in Haiti.

(ANS - Rome) - The Team Visit "is an opportunity to update our response to the Lord” said the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime. “Our vision is that of believers and religious who want to grow in fidelity to God and to the charism of Don Bosco, and to know that our priority is children and young people, and among them the most needy." Fr Tadeusz Rozmus, Councillor for the Region of Central and Northern Europe, expressed satisfaction with the progress of the Visit to the Atlantic-German Zone in the region because, he said, "we are strengthening the unity between the Provinces, acknowledging a reality which is changing, and facing the challenges of the new society with concrete decisions.”

  • Ecuador - In the footsteps of Fr "Yankuam Jintia"

    (ANS - Quito) - On May 2, Fr Agustín Togo and the young Salesian Edwin Cárdenas had the opportunity to wander towards the neighboring village of Peru. The goal was to attend the reception ceremony of the remains of Fr Luigi Bolla in the villages of the Achuar indigenous people. The questions arise almost without thinking about them: "what led you to go on the trip? What experiences have you experienced in such a short time? Which message do you have received after having followed the footsteps of Fr Yankuam Jintia?”

  • The middle class of holiness

    During a recent meeting in the Vatican of Salesian novices with Pope Francis, one of the novices asked for a few words about holiness. And the Pope replied: " 'Walk in my presence and be blameless.' This is the best definition of holiness. These are God's words addressed to Abraham. Dominic Savio was in the habit of living in God's presence and, even now, I believe that today we can be saints. There are heroic people, parents, grandparents, young people, hidden saints, or as someone of French origin, said: 'people who belong to the middle class of holiness' that you do not see but they are there."
