> Rector Major of the Salesians invites to the IX International Congress of Mary Help of Christians

Cardinal Ángel Fernández Artime, Rector Major of the Salesians, has sent a short video inviting the Salesian Family to take part in the 9th International Congress of Mary Help of Christians.

From 29 August to 1 September 2024, Fatima will host the 9th International Congress of Mary Help of Christians, promoted by the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA). Recalling the importance of this meeting for the entire Salesian Family, the Rector Major of the Salesians, Cardinal Ángel Fernández Artime, made a brief video appeal for everyone to take part with a “Salesian Marian heart”.

Recorded in the courtyard of Valdocco in Turin, in the video the Rector Major highlights the IX International Congress of Mary Help of Christians as an “event of the Salesian Family” and recalls the great emotion with which the congress in Buenos Aires was lived: “I still remember the real emotion and deep meaning with which we lived the Buenos Aires Congress,” he emphasised.

António Marcelino, one of the coordinators of the meeting, made a similar appeal: “I’m sure you know that the Pope was in Portugal and in Fatima, and he invited us to be present at ‘everything, everything, everything’ and ‘everyone, everyone, everyone’, because the Church’s events are for everyone.”

These were the first videos in a series of nine that will be released until the IX International Congress of Mary Help of Christians, in which various personalities from the Salesian world will invite everyone to take part in this important Family moment.
