To the young people of the Salesian Youth Movement

7 dicembre 2011

HAPPY FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION!

I greet all of you, dear friends of the Salesian Youth Movement, Happy feast of the Immaculate Conception!

Many of you are animators of the Oratories and Youth Centers present in the five continents. Thank you for the generous gift of yourself.

On the vespers of this feast, I invite you to read that memorable event of December 8, 1841 as it is recounted in the Memoirs of the Oratory.

We celebrate the 170th anniversary of that event. It is now up to you, young people, to imitate Don Bosco’s courageous choice. You are called to give life to whatever center you belong to, bringing into it the oratorian style, welcoming especially the abandoned children and young people. In your own way you can also ask them the question “do you know how to whistle…?” and so open their heart to life, to hope and to an encounter with Jesus.

May Mary, the Immaculate Help of Christians accompany and protect you. You will all be remembered in my prayer.

Maria del Carmen Canales fma, General Councillor for Youth Ministry

    Thank you for the message. In all our houses the whole community and young people recited the Hail Mary and shared what Mother Mary has done in their life.
