Message from the Rector Major to the Salesian Family for Peace
Kolkata, Sep. 5. (ANS - Rome) - Welcoming and relaying Pope Francis` call for prayer and fasting, the Rector Major, Fr Pascual Chávez, has issued a letter in which he exhorts all the members of the Salesian Family to participate in the initiative.

Recalling Don Bosco`s devotion and unconditional obedience to the Holy Father, Fr Chávez invites all the members of the Salesian Family in Rome or its vicinity to take part directly in the time of prayer planned for St Peter`s Square on the evening of Saturday 7 September.

The Rector Major suggests that all others should participate with the same spirit of communion in the initiatives organized in local churches.

Every community or educational setting is invited to arrange times of prayer, reflection and sharing on peace. The Rector Major proposes three phases: prayer, education and witness.
