By Our Own Correspondent

RMG, 13 July 2018 -- "So that my joy may be in you" (John 15: 11). As every year since 2014, the Rector Major shared in the beginning of July the Presentation of his Strenna for next year 2019. The five page presentation of the 'Holiness for you, too!' Strenna is based on the Pope Francis Apostolic Exhortation 'Rejoice and Be Glad' (Gaudete et Exsultate) - 'On the call to holiness in today's' world' (March 19,2018).

A memo-style presentation of the Strenna 2019 is divided in 9 points/p>

  1. God calls us to Holiness (Invitation from the Holy Scriptures)

  2. A call to Holiness for Everyone (What is important is to be holy)

  3. Don Bosco wants his young people happy in this world and in the next

  4. Jesus is the Happiness that you, dear young people, are looking for

  5. 'I feel within me a desire and a need of becoming holy' (Dominic Savio)

  6. Holiness lived in the Salesian charism

  7. What does it mean 'Holiness for you, too!'?

  8. Some pointers to holiness and some dynamics to help on this journey

  9. Path of holiness today
