Revised Salesian Prayer Manual ed. 2020

RMG, Rome, 23 July 2020 — In the presentation to the ‘Salesian Prayer Manual’ (220 pages, ed. 2020), the 10th successor of Don Bosco, Fr. Angel F. Artime explains the background and goals of this revised Salesian Prayer Book: “My dear confreres, General Chapter 27 (2014) requested an updating of the manual In dialogue with the Lord and other resources of prayer as an expression of our commitment to grow in the Salesian consecrated identity. In the revision of the text, I asked the redaction group to keep in mind three elements: 1. the multicultural context of the Congregation; 2. the new digital world; 3. prayer with the young and with our lay mission partners. Perhaps the group has succeeded in paying greater attention to the possibilities offered today by the digital world than to the other two elements. For this reason, apart from a text that could be printed by Provinces or regions, they have prepared a digital edition with several alternatives, available on the Congregation’s website (www.sdb.org). A very handy app for Salesian prayer has also been designed (Salesians@prayer), which includes, among other things, the Salesian Proper, which of its nature calls for frequent updating to include...

Prayer to the Saints Is More Biblical Than You Realize

Prayer to the saints remains one of the enduring sticking points in Catholic-Protestant dialogues. As always, from the Catholic side, a disclaimer is in order: We do not need something to be in the Bible in order for us to necessarily have as part of our faith or practice. The word Trinity is not in […] Source: Prayer to the Saints Is More Biblical Than You RealizeShare this:Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new...

Powerful homage to Korean missionary Fr. John Lee

Movie: The Resurrection Seoul, South Korea, 17 July 2020 — A second movie was released last January, focusing on on the legacy of Fr John Lee (1962-2010), Salesian Korean missionary in South Sudan (2001-2009). The documentary directed by the former KBS PD Ku Su Hwan was released 10 years after the ‘Dont’ Cry Tonj’ movie by the same director. “The Resurrection” is focused on the former students – past pupils – disciples of late Fr John Lee, who died from cancer in January 2010, after 9 years of missionary work as a Salesian priest, doctor, teacher and oratory animator in the town of Tonj (South Sudan) during the civil war. The movie presents no fewer than 70 of the Tonj Don Bosco Past Pupils, who over the years have become involved in the medical mission, serving their young country (South Sudan independence since 2011) – both in Ethiopia, South Korea and in South Sudan. The producer and movie director, through annual visits to Tonj after 2010, gained personal knowledge and trust from many Don Bosco Past Pupils who tell their own story as the fruit of a sound Salesian education with many personal memories about Fr. John Lee in...

Pray AND Take a Stand for Our Country

Join the Conversation with Cardinal Raymond Burke! Dear Friend, ~ Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. This month’s edition of Conversations with Cardinal Burke comes during dynamic, intense and trying times effecting every one of us. I imagine you are as bewildered as I am seeing the confluence of crises and overlapping emergencies erupting in 2020. And could you imagine even ten or fifteen years ago that we would see an anti-American movement where people carry a disdain for standing for the National Anthem or having schoolchildren recite in class the Pledge of Allegiance?  Much less, a shocking degree of disregard for law and order in society. It is becoming more apparent the world has enjoyed unprecedented economic development and relative peace and stability as a result of having international order. The current order was born from the ashes of the second world war. This order was born from the ashes of the first world war and was hard earned costing the world one hundred and fifty million lives who were lost over the course of the 31-year period of what was a great power war from 1914-1945. Two other examples...
