How do we live the commumion of Saints?

Source: austraLasia – 4758(I)_How do we live the commumion of Saints?   RMG, 13 June 2018 — There are five questions in this brief letter of the Rector Major, that will be published as the part of the Acts of the General Council (ACG) n. 428 (August 2018): Do we keep in mind and pray to our Blesseds, Venerables and Servants of God? Do we have confidence in the communion of Saints? Do we believe in the power of intercession of the Saints? Do we think that it is important to pray to obtain miracles? Do we believe that miracles can no longer happen?” There is lot of charismatic wisdom contained in the recent Salesian Holiness Seminar, pondering mostly on the communion of Saints we are called to live in our ordinary life: ‘Unless we pray to the Blesseds and Venerables, we shall not be able to obtain miracles from God…etc’   The 172 Saints, Blessed, Venerable and Servants of God in the Salesian Family are daily witnesses to the charismatic opportunity for each one of us: ‘They could follow Jesus in their human weakness in this way, why not me?’ The charismatic chain of Saint who does accompany...

No final do Século XIX, o Chile via um contexto político difícil, com uma Guerra de Sucessão e Civil. Cláudio Vicuña, parente distante do pai de Laura, envolveu-se na disputa pelo poder, estendendo o perigo de morte a toda a família. Alguns membros da família chegaram mesmo a fugir para outros países. Com pouco mais de 3 anos, Laura fica sem o pai. A mãe, Mercedes, ficou praticamente na miséria. Como o apelido Vicuña trazia alguns riscos, Laura, a mãe e a sua irmã fugiram para a Argentina, na esperança de que os conflitos no seu país terminassem dali a pouco tempo. Já na Argentina Mercedes, mãe de Laura, à procura de trabalho, chegou à estância de Quilquihué, que pertencia a Manuel Mora. Este, aproximou-se logo de Mercedes e pressionou-a para se tornar na sua amante. Em troca, abrigaria as três na estância e garantiria a educação das filhas. Sem outra alternativa, Mercedes aceitou.

Portugal – Young people who have changed the world: Laura Vicuña

Source: Portugal – Young people who have changed the world: Laura Vicuña (ANS – Lisbon) – We have decided to learn more about a figure who is among the “young people who have changed the world”: her name is Laura Vicuña. Laura was born April 5, 1891, in Chile. She was the eldest daughter of José Domingo Vicuña and Mercedes Pino. At the end of the nineteenth century, Chile was going through a politically difficult period and Claudio Vicuña, a distant relative of Laura’s father, was involved in a dispute over power, thus putting all his family in danger of death. Barely over the age of 3, Laura remained without a father. Her mother, Mercedes, found herself almost in poverty, so that, together with Laura and another daughter, she took refuge in Argentina. In search of work, she arrived at the Quilquihué estate, belonging to Mr. Manuel Mora. He enticed Laura’s mother to become his lover, offering her the education of her daughters in return. Laura could therefore study at the “Mary Help of Christians” school. As a child she told herself that she wanted to serve God and that she was willing to “give life to God and...
