Rome (Italy). On 6 May 2022, the Mother General of the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, Sr. Chiara Cazzuola, during the Good night communicated to the Generalate Community (RCG) the destination of the nine new FMA missionaries.

The new missionaries, from eight Provinces and four Continents, received the missionary destination at the end of a period of discernment and prayer, accompanied by the Councilor for the Missions, Sr. Ruth del Pilar Mora.

The destinations of the new missionaries:

In the Good Night, Mother Chiara recalled the importance of invoking from the Lord the gift of the missionary spirit “for those who already live in the Salesian mission and missionary life as a vocation ad gentes.” Connecting it to the Feast of St. Dominic Savio, she said, “What amazes us is the climate of holiness that was lived in Valdocco, the fact that Don Bosco made holiness pass into his educational system, as Mother Mazzarello did in Mornese, as a daily fact, achievable in one’s ordinary life, and this touched young people in the depths of their hearts.

There is also this: the courage to approach people, young people, and to make personalized proposals. On the outside, Dominic was like all the others, but he had this fire inside and Don Bosco knows how to discover it. Not only that, but he knows how to nourish and guide him to witness and to the apostolate among his companions, to the point that Dominic calls him a ‘tailor’ and uses that beautiful expression ‘I am the fabric, you are the tailor, we will make a beautiful suit for the Lord'”.

Mother thus wished the new missionaries, and all the FMA who live in contact with children and young people, the courage to be ‘seamstresses’, building an environment that makes Salesian spirituality lived on a daily basis, “which make young people feel that there is something more and different that ignites the desire for an answer, an openness, a listening to the voice of God and who knows how to orient without fear”.

The new missionaries will continue their path of formation in preparation for the mission ad gentes, finishing their courses at the Pontifical Urbania University in Rome and with the active and fraternal participation of the community experience in the FMA Generalate.
