    (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?

  • 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."
