  • 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.

  • RMG – GSFS2017: Many Families in the Salesian Family

    (ANS – Rome) – The fundamental link between Youth Ministry and Family Ministry was put again at the centre of Salesian reflection by the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, with the Strenna 2017. But it is quite some time that diverse realities of the Salesian Family realise paths and proposals to accompany the families in today’s challenges. Some of these initiatives are being presented now at the Days of Spirituality of the Salesian Family 2017.
