  • El Salvador - Archbishop Rivera Damas, SDB: the silent and humble friend of Archbishop Romero

    (ANS - San Salvador) – Martyrdom was the fate destined for Archbishop Óscar Romero.  His first successor, the Salesian Archbishop Arturo Rivera Damas, was destined to die a quiet death in a hospital bed. Now they are both buried in the cathedral in San Salvador, one in a large sepulchral monument, the other portrayed on the wall behind the Romero mausoleum. Even in life he was always behind Romero, silent and humble.

    Paula Figueroa, who worked with both of them, speaks about the figure of the Salesian Archbishop.

SPECIAL REPORTS

  • 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.

MESSAGES OF THE RECTOR MAJOR

  • WHY WE HAVE LIFE IN ABUNDANCE

    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.
