“Go into the whole world”
From19 to 25 September we were prepared to receive the Missionary Mandate with the charismatic-missionary experience lived in the places of Mother Mary Domenica Mazzarello at Mornese and Nizza. We passed the day of the 26th at Colle Don Bosco together with the new SDB missionaries. During the Eucharistic celebration in Don Bosco’s Basilica, they were given the re-printed FMA Constitutions as a sign of fidelity to the Founder’s project, as the recent General Chapter had determined. Both the FMA and the Salesians at the Mount of the Beatitudes renewed their vows as the immediate preparation for their missionary departure.
September 27, 2015 will forever remain in the history of the Salesian Family and in the memory of the people who participated in the Eucharist in the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in Turin. Nine FMA together with 23 SDB and 7 lay persons from different Salesian presences listened to the missionary mandate and received the missionary Crucifix from the hands of Mother General Yvonne Reungoat and Vicar General Fr. Francesco Cereda. During sermon time Vicar General Fr. Francesco Cereda insisted 3 points 1. We should be open to the spirit what he wants us do and when to do.2. Give testimonies to Christian missionary. 3. When we face difficulities look at the cross of jeus who crucified for our sins. House of maria :- confidence in maria, be courage, prudence in doing things. After that we had sometious meals with salesians.
