Guarantee the Salesian Culture in communities - RM tells Rectors
Addressing the rectors and leaders of communities in Chennai, the Rector Major Fr Pascual Chavez spoke of the crucial role of the rector in the community. He began by telling them how Fr. Michael Rua was appointed Rector of Mirabello when he was only 26 years old. Young Fr. Rua protested saying he was too young, had no experience, and didn`t know how to be a rector. Don Bosco`s memorable reply was ``Do in Mirabello what you have seen in Valdocco,`` which meant reproducing faithfully the charismatic, pastoral and spiritual experience of Valdocco. Turing to the rectors of Chennai, the Rector Major said, ``I say the same to you today!``
