(ANS - León) - The presence of the Rector Major Fr Angel Fernandez Artime in Spain has brought fresh vigour and strength. He continues to encourage the Salesians to be the "guarantors of the Salesian charism." Speaking to 55 Rectors of various Salesian Houses he invited them to dream of a future for the "young" province, studying how to ensure the presence of the Salesian charism in the Salesian works and he asked them to listen to the needs of young people and to be more proactive in faith education.

(ANS - Manta) - It seems that even in the midst of so much pain there is good news that gladdens and encourages the people. "A 72-year old man was saved 13 days after the earthquake in Ecuador." 660 people have died because of the earthquake "including some of our students," reports Fr Luis Mosquera, Rector of the Salesian House in Manta. According to the latest data, there are still a thousand people accommodated in shelters in Manabi. Most of these people have lost everything, absolutely everything.

(ANS - Aleppo) – Split by the front line between government forces and rebel militias, Aleppo is now a city totally torn apart by war, a dying city, a martyr city, a city that bleeds because of hatred ... Fr Pier Jabloyan, a Salesian who was born and raised in Aleppo, no longer knows how to describe his city. In a new video appeal launched by the Salesians in Aleppo Fr Jabloyan makes this request: "intensify your prayers for us especially in this Marian month".



  • 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.
