"Dear Confreres, this special element is Fraternity"


June 19, 2015

queridos hermanosMESSAGES - The third video in the series "Dear Confreres" is being published in six languages today, Monday 15 June.  This constitutes a moment of informal meeting between the Superior of the Congregation and the Sons of Don Bosco scattered over all continents.

The video was filmed in Valdocco, in Don Bosco’s rooms, on 24 May, the Solemnity of Pentecost and the Feast of Mary Help of Christians. It recalls the beauty of diversity and the fraternity that is found throughout the whole of the Congregation. The recent visits of the Rector Major were the starting point for these reflections. He made his first visit to the Inter-America region and then travelled to the East Asia-Oceania Region. "We have a beautiful reality of communion in our congregation: richness, diversity, variety ... but a sense of community that really makes it special," said the Rector Major.

As well as extending his greetings to the whole Salesian Family, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime also says thanks for this time of great emotion in those areas where they are now concluding the academic year. He reiterates his call to all his "dear confreres” to rediscover continually the "Passion for their Vocation" as a guarantee of good pastoral work.

The Video is already available on ANSChannel in Italian, Spanish, English, French, Portuguese and Polish and will be available in the coming weeks in another fourteen versions.
