November 11 - a great day in the missionary history!

Don Bosco sent his first group of missionaries from Europe (Italy) to Latin America (Argentina). That missionary send of of 11 November 1875 was repeated already 144 times ....until now.

Two photos - one is of September 2014, other other of November 1875 - show us the way forward! 

Do you find yourself in this photos? 

Listening again and again 'The Joy of the Gospel' of Pope Francis, I wish all of us are again living the ongoing conversion - to live permanently in a state of  mission!

Let's obey the call of the Lord 'TO GOT FORTH from our OWN COMFORT ZONE in order to reach all the 'peripheries' in need of the light of the Gospel' (Evangelii Gaudium n.20)

Let this photo of the first ten Salesian missionaries ad gentes under the guidance of Fr. John Cagliero be for us an ongoing invitation to make every day a new step of going out ... of my comfort zone..

Saint John Bosco, pray for us!
