Magone inspires the life of young people today

By Our Own Correspondent Liloan – Cebu, the Philippines, 20 February 2019 — Since 2010 when the Magone Home Aftercare Program first opened, more than 150 young marginalized people have been transformed thanks to this new Don Bosco ministry in Cebu. Together with the Boys Home, Parish, Vocational Training Center, High School and Youth Center, this Program offers an integral environment for many youth in conflict with the law for a solid renewal of their life. Thanks to the commitment of the Salesians, Past Pupils from the Don Bosco Home (some of them are on the staff at Magone), well qualified staff involving social workers, psychologists and networking with many government and other civil authorities, most of the ‘clients’ of Magone have been able to start a new life. Up to this point, this is the only Salesian ministry of the kind in the two Filipino Salesian provinces. Listening to the batch 11 boys (who entered this program last year, 2018) offers deep insight into the healing, transforming and faith developing results of the Magone Project: Before, I was always rejected due to my many faults but in the Magone Home I was made welcome and recovered my self-esteem....

The Danger of Pride and the Power of Humility

Let’s begin this reflection on humility as the foundation of virtue with a reading from the letter of St. Paul to the Philippians: Though he was in the form of God, [Jesus] did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in […] Source: The Danger of Pride and the Power of HumilityShare 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...

Truth and Tolerance: Why the Church Can’t Change Her Teaching

“The Catholic Church is intolerant.” That simple thought, like a yellow-fever sign, is supposed to be the one solid reason which should frighten away any one who might be contemplating knocking at the portals of the Church for entrance, or for a crumb of the Bread of Life. When proof for this statement is asked, […] Source: Truth and Tolerance: Why the Church Can’t Change Her TeachingShare 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...

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen – My Trusted Guide for Lent

As I prepare for Lent each year, I ask myself the same questions: what am I going to give up, what works of mercy will I perform, or what spiritual reading might I entertain this year? The older I get, the more I realize that I cannot go wrong with the tried and proven writings […] Source: Archbishop Fulton J.

“I dream of a formation that will attract young people”

  Interview with Salesian Cooperator from Jakarta By Our Own Correspondent Jakarta, Indonesia, 5 February 2019 — Interview with a Salesian Cooperator from Jakarta. Ms Ernie Djohan is an active member of the only Salesian Cooperators Centre in Jakarta, Indonesia (INA). Last March 2018 she took part in the EAO provincials meeting in Dili, Timor Leste, with other Salesian Cooperators from Indonesia and Timor Leste. What makes you happy as a Salesian Cooperator? Being part of the great Salesian Family makes me happy as a Salesian Cooperator. Staying in touch and closely connected with the other local Salesian groups (SDB and FMA) encourages me to learn more and more how to live out the Salesian spirit in my daily life and responsibilities. What makes you grow in your Salesian Cooperator vocation and mission? The daily encounter with Christ in prayer and in the Eucharist gives me lots of joy and strength to keep a steady growth and to remain faithful in my Salesian Cooperator vocation, even though I have not been able to put my knowledge and my abilities into a particular mission yet. All I can do at present is to give of my best by taking part in...

How Do We Respond to New York’s New Abortion Law?

The state of New York recently passed a law that guarantees women the “right” to have an abortion right up to birth at full term. The videos of this bill being passed are heartbreaking — a roomful of men and women clapping and cheering for the abortion of unborn children. I’m sure that I’m not […] Source: How Do We Respond to New York’s New Abortion Law?Share 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...
