Dear Brother and Sister Salesians:

New Inter-America Regional

A funny thing happened in Rome...

I came here fully convinced, and decided, despite rumors and suggestions to the contrary, that I would not be elected InterAmerica Regional, and if so, would not accept.  I thought my reasons were really solid too.

The Provincial's weekly letter to the Salesian Family:

Dear Brother and Sister Salesians:

Spring is waking up here in Rome.  The sun shines more brightly, the flowers bloom more boldly, the birds sing more gloriously.  But indoors, the work goes on.  Sometimes it’s a little tedious, and the mind wanders as the eyes search out a window.  Then there’s always that gentle voice calling us (me) back and reminding us (me) of the importance of what we are attending to.

First of all

Dear Brother and Sister Salesians:

My heart is saddened by the death of Fr. Jerry Bonjean so soon after his last surgery.  Cancer is an intractable disease.  On the other hand I am gladdened that his suffering is now over, and in God’s mercy we believe that he is enjoying the peace, joy, rest and beauty promised to those who stay faithful in following the Lord.

Dear Brother and Sister Salesians:

News of happenings at the General Chapter is available daily from ANS, from GC27’s own page, and from various blogs and Facebook posts.  So for me to attempt to comment on the many singular moments the Chapter experienced last week (and I suppose for you to read them) would be too much and perhaps repetitive.
