90th anniversary of Sts Versiglia and Caravario’s martyrdom

90th anniversary of Sts Versiglia and Caravario’s martyrdom ceteratolle Views 92 Comment 0 China province dedicates 2020 to the Martyrdom anniversary By Fr. Carlos Cheung Hong Kong, China, 7 January 2020 — For the New Year 2020 Fr. Joseph NG, SDB provincial of China released a YouTube video message sharing the motivations and goals for the 90th anniversary celebration of Sts Versiglia and Caravario who were martyred on 25 February 1930. “In 2020, our Congregation is going to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the martyrdom of Sts. Luigi Versiglia and Callisto Caravario. We commemorate their contributions towards our Salesian congregation and also in particular our province–CIN. Celebrations and activities would follow for our Salesian proto-martyrs from 25 February to 13 November, 2020. I hope we came to learn the spirit of martyrdom from these two Saints through different activities we are gong to organize this year. Sometimes people said, religious life is a ‘white martyrdom’ (not-bloody), but I would say every Christian participates in ‘white martyrdom’, if we put the Gospel into practice and bear our cross. Dear brothers and sisters, let us mold ourselves after the models of Saints Louis Versiglia and Callisto Caravario.” The best available biography of our two Protomartyrs...

Commemoration of Fr Lunkenbein, model of a missionary and of a commitment to Creation

Germany – Commemoration of Fr Lunkenbein, model of a missionary and of a commitment to Creation 23 October 2019 (ANS – Berlin) – On the occasion of the Synod of Bishops on the Pan-Amazon region, still in progress at the Vatican, and because of the Extraordinary Missionary Month, the Salesians of Germany commemorate Fr Rudolf Lunkenbein, SDB, who, as an active missionary in Mato Grosso, Brazil, committed himself to giving his life for the rights of the Bororo indigenous people. He and the indigenous Simão Bororo were killed by white landowners in 1976. Even after more than 40 years, the German Salesians stress the extreme timeliness of his commitment, why they have published a new publication on the life and works of Fr Lunkenbein entitled: “Er lebte, was er predigte. Fr. Rudolf Lunkenbein SDB: Ermordet – für die Rechte of the Indianers “(He lived what he preached. Fr Rudolf Lunkenbein SDB: Killed – for Indigenous Rights). “Father Lunkenbein encourages us to be authentic and passionate evangelizers. The commitment to peace, justice and the preservation of Creation are indispensable today,” commented the Provincial of Germany, Fr Reinhard Gesing, SDB. The author of the publication is Fr Josef Grünner, SDB, Head of...
