After the election process for the choice of the Rector Major was completed, Fr Pascual Chavez, President of the Assembly, invited Fr Angel Fernandez Artime to come beside him, and said: ''Dear Fr Angel, through your confreres God has called you today to be the successor of Don Bosco. You are not called to be like the Rector Major, nor Don Vecchi nor Don Vigano. You are the successor of Don Bosco, not of Don Chavez. So, on behalf of the Chapter, I ask you if you accept.'' Speaking in Spanish, Fr Angel said with an emotional heart: ''I abandon myself to the Lord. We ask Don Bosco and Mary Help of Christians to accompany us and to accompany me, with my brother Salesians and with the Congregation, and I accept with faith.'' . Read More »
