Don Bosco always young !

Don Bosco always young !
Don Bosco always young !


The animation visitation to China Province (1914-2014)

is rather intense time of meeting, listening and animating the 125 confreres in Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Two pictures are from Instituto Salesiano (Macau) - which is the first Salesian house in East Asia - Oceania region (first photo is about 100 years old, second is just one week old)

Now we give thanks for 108 years of Salesian Charism in the largest country in the world, keeping Don Bosco always young.

There is a reality that every 30-40 years each Salesian work should be 're-invented' in order to cope with the changing situation of the youth needs, of the Church and the society. 

After one week in China province I give thanks to God for the always young and renewed expressions of Salesian Charism in this ancient culture which is now at the center of world attention almost every day.

Indeed our schools are now doing well thanks to hundreds of very committed lay mission partners, all of the principles are already lay people, well formed and identified with Don Bosco.

Just 3 months before the extraordinary visitation of China province (January - April 2015) this week of animation visit was a good occasion to re-connect to many familiar hearts and faces of Salesians, Salesian Family members and many already known lay mission partners.

With a prayer to Mary Help of Christian, Patroness of China!
