Rome (Italy). St. John Bosco Province (IRO) shares the FMA institute’s World Gratitude Day 2020 program, which takes place from 24 to 26 April, online.

There are many reasons for gratitude that are shared on the Web and Institutional Social Sites these days, which are an expression of joy “for loyalty, for giving herself with love and wisdom, for the charismatic passion that she communicates with enthusiasm, for the courage with which she has faced numerous journeys to reach the Educating Communities in every part of the world, always with a joyful face “(From the Letter of Sister Chiara Cazzuola, Vicar General of IFMA).

Expressions of Graces from the Provinces (testi, video)

Your life is a tree that bears fruit.

Remembering the stories, gestures, and signs of life of the Salesian charism lived and shared in co-responsibility with the laity and young people of the Salesian Family is a sign of unity and communion, of the synergy and fruitfulness of a charism that grows in all the realities of the world.

In these days, when we live the experience of closeness, fraternal charity, and evangelical citizenship, we remember the benefits that the Lord has worked and works in the FMA Institute, in each sister, lay person, and the young through the mediation of Mother Yvonne Reungoat, Superior General of the FMA Institute, with her wise and maternal guidance.

“Like a tree planted along waterways, every day we feed on the living and clear source of the word of Jesus and the Church. With this vitality received from the divine source, we are called to give to God the fruits of joy, hope, and fraternal communion, renewing our faithful response to the mandate: “I entrust them to you” (cf.  Vespers, 25 April 2020).
