On 23 May, 100 years ago, monument to Don Bosco inaugurated in Turin

  Don Bosco statue in front of Basilica of Mary Help of Christians (ANS – Rome) – 129 days from the beginning of the 28th General Chapter, the interviews with members of the Valdocco Community continue, all leading us to discover the most significant places. This week, the “Interviews with the eyes of …” features Fr Bruno Ferrero, SDB, Director of the Italian Salesian Bulletin. Fr Bruno Ferrero tells us about the statue of Don Bosco in front of the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians. “As soon as the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians was finished, here there was this clearing that was of beaten earth, very ugly,” Fr Ferrero explains in the video. “Already Don Bosco, looking at the facade, had said one day: ‘Here a monument with Moses who strikes the rock and water gushing would be good.’ In fact, the idea of the monument went forward,” he adds. The idea of building a monument dedicated to Don Bosco was put forward by a group of Past Pupils in 1911 at the First International Past Pupil Congress. A commission of architects was created for the project with the idea of inaugurating the statue within a couple of years....

Finally! Something that makes sense!

Trump: Churches Are Essential!     When COVID-19 first became evident in America, churches across the country did something unheard of in a country built on a rich and strong foundation of religious freedom—they closed their doors. Now we all know that God’s work isn’t constrained to the four walls of a church. His people have been very much at work during the pandemic through prayer, meeting people’s most basic needs, providing donations of much needed supplies, and more. But, America’s churches chose not to meet in worship—in most cases entirely voluntarily—in order to join the effort to stop COVID-19. But then we all started to notice something deeply troubling. The churches’ doors were closed, despite strong constitutional protections for religious freedom. Yet, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry marched on. You know the story—Planned Parenthood defied state orders to shut down, pushed their agenda of “virtual abortions” with less safety measures for women, and even asked for donations of masks and hand sanitizer. The contrast couldn’t be clearer. The Church largely voluntarily halted their First Amendment rights to assemble and worship together in an effort to save lives.
