"Don Bosco would ask us today: what are you doing to guarantee a dignified future for the young people? "On World Earth Day, the Rector Major launches a very important message to the whole Salesian family: work together in Integral Ecology for a just and sustainable world to be handed over to our young people. In this video, prepared by the Youth Pastoral Sector of the headquarters, the whole Salesian family under the guidance of the Rector Major, joins Pope Francis in the path traced by the Encyclical Laudato Si', because it is clear by now that we can no longer close our eyes to the socio-environmental crisis that affects our common home and its inhabitants: "We have the task of educating to respect life, in all its forms. In our schools and universities, in our oratories and parishes, we meet thousands of young people, we help them to grow and accompany them on their journey through life. To them we must transmit positive values and deliver a fairer, more equitable and more liveable world".
Sr. Chiara Cazzuola, Mother General of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians joins Fr. Angel's words: "The Daughters of Mary Help of Christians walk with the whole Salesian family on the path of integral ecology. We believe that the world is a wonderful gift to be cared for and preserved". And so do the Salesian Cooperators, the Past Pupils, the Association of Devotees of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA) who want to represent here, in this short video, the whole family of Don Bosco and Mother Mazzarello. They all invite us to act concretely and to subscribe to the Laudato Si' Action Platform, launched by the Dicastery for the Service to the Integral Human Development of the Vatican: https://piattaformadiiniziativelaudatosi.org/ .
