Salesian Mission Day 2018: Gift and Chance


By By Fr. Guillermo Basanes, SDB
General Councilor for the Missions


RMG, 27 January 2018 -- The focus of the 2018 Salesian Mission Day (SMD) is again on the Initial Proclamation of Jesus, this time in the Asian continent with a special attention to the environment of the Vocation Training Center. Starting from the title 'Whispering the Gospel' this SMD looks like a precious gift to all of EAO provinces, with the multiple occasion to rekindle the missionary flame of each Salesian.


Many animation materials are already available on the internet and they look very familiar: With the focus on the Vocation Training Center, we can watch and read the narratives of many Salesian Brothers: Br. Luis Parolin (FIN - Poster SMD: on the left side and story p. 37-39), Br. Andrew Phuong (VIE - Mongolia, story p. 36), Br. Roberto Panetto (THA - Cambodia, interview p. 33-35) and Br. Carlo Bacalla (THA - Laos, video).


The focus on the TVET and Technical Education centers (120 in South Asia Region and 60 in EAO Region) shows the heart of the Salesian Charism, where our education does transform the lives of poor young people and also does whisper the Gospel to their souls.


The whole animation package does comprise four different tools: First there are five videos online (www.missionidonbosco.org) about the young people in the VTC: Sri Lanka, Nepal, Laos, Vietnam and Overall introduction, all in 5 languages. Second there is a beautiful Poster, master piece of the young Vietnamese Salesian Peter Le Duoc (SUO province, at present student at Crocetta, Turin). Third is the 44 pages Animation Booklet with many simple materials for the animation, reflection and missionary formation in the local communities. The last is the small SMD 2018 Prayer card.


Last but not the least is the 'Project of the SMD 2018' that aims to help the Myitkyina Don Bosco (MYM Viceprovince) located in the Northern part of Myanmar within the very challenging context of drug addict youth and ongoing armed conflict in the Kachin state.

Each Salesian confrere and members of the Salesian Family would receive a simple SMD 2018 Prayer Card in order to be involved first at the faith level. Let's welcome this precious gift and chance: The Salesian Mission Day 2018 - 'Whispering the Gospel'!


Prayer of the Salesian Mission Day 2018

    Almighty God,

    Maker of heaven and earth,

    who revealed Yourself to Elijah

    neither in the violent wind,

    nor in the earthquake,

    nor in the fire,

    but in the whisper of a gentle breeze,

    make us docile to the whispering of the Spirit

    to announce the heart of the Gospel

    to the heart of the Asian continent.

    May the harmonious and joyful sound

    of an education that leads to employment

    dignify the lives of our young people

    and lead them to an encounter

    with Jesus, the “Carpenter of Nazareth”.

    Amen.
