Ensuring that special attention be given to the family


Ensuring that special attention be given to the family the cradle of life and love and where one first learns how to become human.

POSTER 2006 (4 MB)  



"And when they saw him they were astonished; and his mother said to him, 'Son why have you treated us so? Behold your father and I have been looking for you anxiously.' And he said to them, 'How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?' And they did not understand the saying which he spoke to them. And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and in years, and in favour with God and man". (Lk. 2, 48-52)

My dear Sisters, Daughters of Mary Hep of Christians, my dear Salesian confreres, members of the Salesian Family and friends of Don Bosco; my dear young people, who give joy and meaning to our lives, to all of you an affectionate greeting as we move from 2005 to 2006. I wish each and every one of you a year full of the blessings that God the Father of tenderness and mercy had in mind to grant us when he decided to send his son into the world so that we might have abundant life.
