EAO Good Night Talk (60)                                                                 




Cebu, Philippines,

       1 March, 2019



In what ways do you love Salesian saints?


Dear Friends and Salesian Family members,


    Receive my heartfelt greetings a few days before the beginning of the Lenten season. This year, Ash Wednesday falls on 6 March. In 52 days time from now we will celebrate the Christian heart of each year, the Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!


     We have embarked on the ‘Holiness for You Too!’ journey since 1st January 2019. This Strenna message helps us to discover so many official Salesian saints as well the ‘next door holiness’ in our daily life. I’m grateful to the 2019 Strenna video that easily inspires even young people to take this path of holiness seriously in the headaches and challenges of everyday life, and its often gray, daily duties.


How do we express or make visible our love for our Salesian saints?


     Yes, without getting to know each of the 168+ Salesian Family Saints a little bit more, we can’t talk about our love for them.

   In some provinces, each classroom in our schools is named after one Salesian Family saint, or important Salesian personality of the past. This way our students 

have a chance to know them better.

   In many of our houses we keep the poster of Salesian holiness in a place of 

honour with its photos of the 168 Salesian Family Saints.

   Many Salesians dedicate their time and energy to translating biographies into their mother tongue, in order to make our Saints known more.

   Some of us put on photos of their favorite Saints on their FB page or on a

wall, with some typical saying or short story from their life.

    I was surprised to know that one Salesian confessor asked someone as

penance after confession to buy and read the Biography of Mamma Margaret.


     To know, love, imitate, pray to and make known our Salesian Family Saints is a sure way to be more faithful in our following of Jesus, encouraging each other and motivating ourselves on this earthly journey.



Fr. Václav Klement, SDB

EAO Regional Councillor

    Thank you for this beautiful good night talk.
    I share with sisters in community for buona notte.
    Somehow its inspires us to do the same with our students and orphans.

    Các bạn hữu và các thành viên trong Gia đình Salêdiêng thân mến,

    Cha gửi lời chào thăm thân ái tới tất cả anh chị em, nhân dịp chúng ta đang chuẩn bị bước vào Mùa Chay, từ ngày thứ Tư lễ tro 06/03 tới đây. Trong thời gian 52 ngày của Mùa Chay, chúng ta cử hành Mầu nhiệm Tử nạn và Phục sinh của Chúa Kitô, mầu nhiệm trung tâm của đức tin Công giáo chúng ta.

    Từ đầu năm nay, chúng ta đã đi vào lộ trình Hoa Thiêng 2019 của Cha Bề Trên Cả với nội dung ‘Sự Thánh thiện cũng dành cho cả bạn nữa’. Sứ điệp của Hoa Thiêng giúp chúng ta đào sâu những dung mạo thánh thiện trong gia đình Salêdiêng cũng như khám phá thêm những nét thánh thiện nơi những con người đang sống cận kề chung quanh chúng ta trong cuộc sống thường ngày. Cha rất cảm ơn vì video clip trình bày Hoa Thiêng 2019 đã gợi hứng cho nhiều bạn trẻ lối bước vươn đạt đến sự thánh thiện một cách rất nghiêm túc, giữa lúc họ đang phải đau đầu với bao thách đố giữa những biến cố và công việc hằng ngày.

    Chúng ta có thể diễn bày cách cụ thể lòng yêu mến của chúng ta đối với các vị Thánh Salêdiêng như thế nào ?

    Quả thật, chúng ta không thể nói về 168 vị Thánh Salêdiêng với lòng yêu mến, nếu chúng ta không biết chút gì về các Ngài.

    Tại vài Tỉnh dòng, nhiều lớp học trong các ngôi trường cũng được đặt tên theo danh xưng của các vị Thánh Salêdiêng, hoặc theo một nhân vật Salêdiêng nổi bật nào đó trong quá khứ. Nhờ thế, các em học sinh sẽ dần dần biết về các Ngài rõ nét hơn.

    Tại nhiều cộng đoàn, anh em cũng đã cho trưng bày hình ảnh 168 vị Thánh trong Gia đình Salêdiêng ở những nơi trang trọng nhất.

    Nhiều anh em hội viên đã dành thời gian để chuyển ngữ sang tiếng địa phương tiểu sử các thánh Salêdiêng, để giúp người dân bản địa biết nhiều hơn về các vị Thánh Salêdiêng của chúng ta.

    Nhiều anh em sử dụng facebook đã đưa hình các thánh Salêdiêng lên trang chủ của mình để quảng bá, hay dán lên tường nơi phòng cá nhân của họ kèm theo một vài câu vắn tắt nói về sự thánh thiện của các Ngài.

    Cha cũng khá ngạc nhiên khi có một cha Giải tội ra việc đền tội cho một hối nhân bằng cách nói người ấy phải mua một cuốn sách nói về Mẹ Margarita Occhiena và hãy năng đọc cuốn sách ấy.

    Hãy học biết, hãy yêu mến, hãy bắt chước và hãy cầu khẩn cùng các vị Thánh Salêdiêng là phương cách giúp chúng ta trung thành theo Chúa Giêsu và giúp nhau vươn tới sự thánh thiện trong cuộc sống trần thế hôm nay.

    Dear father!

    Thank you for sharing, surely this is a good idea for me to step into the Lenten season with more passionate feelings.
    I still read Don Bosco's biography every day to refresh my spirit. I see that I still have much to learn about in Don Bosco, and certainly in many saints in the Salesian family.
    I wish you good health and enter the Lenten season with Jesus earnestly ...

    EAO 晚安契谈(60) 应该以什么方式热爱慈幼会的圣者


    今年 3 月 6 日举行圣灰礼仪,从今天开始,利用 52 天的时间,净化我们基督徒的心,以庆祝每年的主
    基督逾越奥迹(即基督的死亡与复活)! 自从 2019 年 1 月 1 日开始,我们以“你也应该是圣洁的!”作为生活的主题。 借着这强烈的信息,帮 助我们在日常生活中,发现如此众多的教会册封的慈幼圣者及“身边的圣德见证者” 。
    非常感谢 2019 年的赠言视频,从而激励青年人在日常生活中遇到的困扰及挑战,并且认真地看待这

    首先我们需要了解这 168 位慈幼家庭圣者,否则对他们的爱,则无法谈起。

     在我们一些会省学校的每一间教室都以慈幼家庭圣者 或大家熟知爱戴的慈幼会士来命名,好使我们的学生有
    机会更好地了解他们。  在我们的许多房间里,都张贴了慈幼大家庭圣者的海 报,纪念这 168 位圣者;  许多慈幼会士奉献出自己宝贵的时间和精力,把这些圣 人传记翻译成自己的母语,好使我们对这些圣者认识更
    多;  我们许多兄弟把他们最喜欢的圣人圣像放到他们的 facebook 里,放张贴在墙上,并附有圣者的金句及简
    短的生活故事介绍;  我惊异地发现,一位慈幼会会士,在忏悔者领受修和圣 事后,问她: “是否阅读了《妈妈丽达》的传记?”

    慈幼会总部东亚澳区议员 慈幼会士:
