HIS “UNOFFICIAL” MESSAGE

FR. BERGOGLIO’S 1990 RECOLLECTION OF HIS SALESIAN EDUCATION

DON ANGEL’S MESSAGE TO THE SALESIAN FAMILY OF NORTH AMERICA ON SEPTEMBER 8, 2018

My dear Salesian Family of the United States of America,

I greet you with great affection from Vancouver.  On this occasion, we are unable to see each other.  I promise you that we will have the opportunity to meet.  I still, however, want to be present to you through this greeting to tell you, first of all, that it is a great gift to be Salesian Family; that you are also united in communion with all the Salesian Family of the world.

To be Salesian Family is to hold a great responsibility in the Church.  We are a huge Religious Family that needs to be alive.  We exist not only to think of ourselves but we are truly within this Church and this world a living force that draws near to those furthest away.  We are:

  • a Salesian Family with open doors, in the universality of our Groups, so that those who are in need feel that the Salesian Family always has someone who will receive, welcome, and listen to them – even if they can’t always fix all their problems.
  • a Salesian Family always concerned with and sensitive to the young – boys, girls, teens, and young adults – for they are the reason that the Holy Spirit raised up Don Bosco and why he dreamed of us.
  • a Salesian Family that needs to continue to grow in communion among ourselves.
  • a Salesian Family that is enthusiastic and hope-filled, contemplating the world as God’s Creation and trusting always that the goodness in human hearts is much greater than the weaknesses.

I am sad that we are unable to get to know each other at this time but I promise you that we will meet each other.  Now I send my embrace, my prayer, and blessing to you through the mediation of Mary Help of Christians.

With a big, affectionate hug,

Hasta siempre!  Good-bye!  Don Angel
