Moved by Hope - a Salesian message
Each year, the Rector Major offers a 'strenna' (Italian for 'gift') to the worldwide Salesian Family, as a theme to guide our thoughts, prayers and actions for the next twelve months. In 2021, Fr Angel's Strenna is 'Moved by hope', inspired by our current global pandemic and the biblical passage 'See, I am making all things new' (Revelation 21:5).
As Christians, we are characterised by hope, and as a Salesian Family, we follow Don Bosco in seeking positive ways help those in need, especially the young, doing all we can to share the joy and hope of God even in the darkest of times.
In the video below, Fr Angel outlines the strenna, and others in the Salesian Family speak about reaching out to people in these times of isolation, loneliness, loss and great material need, and the importance of hope in our present situation.
