How the Catacombs Teach Us to Live Without Fear

When I accompanied my husband on a recent work trip to Italy, his task was to visit archeological sites related to the early Church. Of course, that included the catacombs. There are several catacombs in Rome, but among the most famous are the Catacombs of San Callisto (also called the Catacomb of Callixtus). Approximately half […] Source: How the Catacombs Teach Us to Live Without FearShare 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...

Learning to Accept God’s Will in Hard Times

I had just received shocking news while on a rare long weekend retreat: I was pregnant. Good Catholics are not supposed to be upset about this news, but I was. I wasn’t in a place in my life where I was ready to accept or welcome another baby, and I couldn’t fathom how I would […] Source: Learning to Accept God’s Will in Hard TimesShare 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...

Buona notte – Lord, send me out of my comfort zone!

Lord, sen d me out of my comfort zone! EAO Good night talk – 2019, August Dear Friends and Salesian Family members,     Receive my heartfelt greetings on the second stop over of this second semester journey around our EAO region – Cambodia. The ‘EAO Good Night Talk’ was started in April 2014 after the General Chapter 27 as a humble attempt to strengthen the sense of belonging among the Salesian family members in our large and diversified Region of 23 countries. Most of our EAO cultures appreciate very much the storytelling for the community building and deeper relationship.    This year it’s already 35th anniversary of my escaped from Czechoslovakia to become a missionary in Project Africa! One night, on August 1984, as a young Salesian I crossed the Alps between Yugoslavia and Italy. It was an adventure that marked out my whole life and vocation, was narrated hundreds of times over in various occasions. In 1982 it took two years to plan this flight from a communist country – Czechoslovakia – so I could set out as a missionary ad gentes. And finally in August 1984 it took just two days by bus from Prague to the Adriatic sea coast (Yugoslavia)...

Salesian Cooperators in the digital world

Korean Salesian Cooperators renewed website By Mr. Choe Seon-Ho Ivo, ASC Provincial Coordinator Seoul, Korea, 31 July 2019 — Francis de Sales widely used publications for faith education of believers. De Sales is the patron saint of journalists and writers. Don Bosco also spread his ideas through writings and publications. Don Bosco is the father and teacher of youth, but also the patron saint of editors and publishers. De Sales and Don Bosco actively adapted to the development of social communication media in their time. Salesian Cooperators must adapt to the development of social communication media, especially for young people’s education, for their families and for the poor (See Article 2, Clause 3 of the ASC Regulations). We are in the midst of a massive reorganization of our homepage in 2019. In 2003, we opened our homepage ahead of the 4th East Asia Oceania Conference. Korea is undergoing dramatic development in the field of information and communication technology. We have reorganized to increase the utilization of the homepage around 2011. Since then, however, the fourth industrial revolution following the convergence of information and communication technologies has accelerated, necessitating the reformation of the website. Web-based homepages are no longer available. We...

We can’t imagine Salesian formation without translation

Interview with Fr Silvio Roggia, SDB By Our Own Correspondent RMG, 28 July 2019 — In our Congregation, spread throughout 132 countries (today), nobody who is assigned to the service of the Rector Major, can avoid daily struggle with translations to many languages. And the Formation sector is no exception. Fr. Silvio is a veteran missionary in English-speaking Western Africa (AFW province of Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Liberia), served as Novice master and Vice-provincial. Now, together with Br. Raymond Callo and Fr. Francisco Santos he is a member of the Formation sector. We are grateful for this highly professional and passionate sharing! How did you start out or how did you learn to translate Salesian texts? More than learning how to translate I felt the great need for translated Salesian material for the formation of young confreres in Africa. Among the many publications, three especially have become extremely valuable: [1] Don Bosco by Teresio Bosco [2] Don Bosco and the Salesians by Morand Wirth [3] Don Bosco History and Spirit by Lenti-Giraudo. Books alone do not do much for the life of a young person or candidate or confrere. But when books are part of a process, of learning,...
