Salvatore Cirillo Dama – “Cuarenta y cinco dias a orillas del rio Azopardo” in “Ricerche Storiche Salesiane”

En el museo salesiano “Maggiorino Borgatello” de Punta Arenas cayó bajo mis manos un manuscrito dactilografiado en que no se mencionaba el autor con el título “Cuarenta y cinco días a orillas del rio Azopardo” posteriormente pude averiguar que fue escrito por el padre Lorenzo Massa y el contenido corresponde a un relato testimonial del padre Luis Carnino a la época, director de la misión salesiana San Rafael de la isla Dawson (1889-1911), el mismo Carnino encabezó una expedición al occidente de Tierra del Fuego, proyecto ideado y organizado por Mons. José Fagnano sdb, Prefecto Apostólico de la Patagonia meridional, Tierra del Fuego e Islas Malvinas (1883-1916).

Maria Maul – Fragility in the life of Mary Mazzarello

In the altar of the large church to St. Mary Domenica Mazzarello in Mornese-Mazzarelli, a vertebra of her backbone has been inserted as a symbol of her upright personality and her inner strength. It is not surprising, therefore, that Fr. Alberto Cavaglià, in his celebratory lecture on 14 May 1932, at the end of the Jubilee Year with which the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians (FMA) celebrated the 50th anniversary of Mary Mazzarello’s death, compared her to the “strong and wise women” of the Book of Proverbs (cf. Prov 31). Continue reading “Maria Maul – Fragility in the life of Mary Mazzarello”

Mary Greenan – Accompanying the young: the souls our hearts seek

The story is told of a young novice in the desert who went to the elder, the holy man of God, and said, “Father, according as I am able, I keep my little Rule, and my little fast, my prayer, meditation and contemplative silence; and, according as I am able, I strive to cleanse my heart of thoughts. Now, what more should I do?” The elder rose up in reply and stretched out his hands to heaven, and his fingers became like ten lamps of fire. Continue reading “Mary Greenan – Accompanying the young: the souls our hearts seek”

Joseph Boenzi – Paolo Albera’s instructions early efforts to inculcate the Spirit of Don Bosco

Among Saint John Bosco’s early disciples, Paolo Albera (1845-1921) was one who was called upon to articulate and defend the founder’s spirit. Even as a youth, he had been numbered among Don Bosco’s most beloved. He served in a variety of leadership positions from his teenage years until his election as rector major in 1910. Perhaps his most significant role before becoming superior general was that of spiritual director general of the Salesian Society, a post he held from 1892 until 1910. Continue reading “Joseph Boenzi – Paolo Albera’s instructions early efforts to inculcate the Spirit of Don Bosco”

Kaoru Tamura – Something about Mary. Reflections on Don Bosco, mother Mazzarello and the development of the “Spirit of Mornese”

Mary Mazzarello had not seen Don Bosco until October of 1864, when he visited Mornese. In fact, it was not until 1871, some seven years later, that she came under the direct authority of the Founder, when the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians was founded. However, she seems to have been well prepared for her work with Don Bosco and the Salesians, both in her philosophical formation and her life experiences. Continue reading “Kaoru Tamura – Something about Mary. Reflections on Don Bosco, mother Mazzarello and the development of the “Spirit of Mornese””
