Blessed Michael Rua and the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Hlep of Christians

Rome ( Italy ). On the occasion of the death of Blessed Michael Rua (1910-2010), the first successor of St. John Bosco, the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians recalled this great figure, so close to the story of our growth from the very beginnings. The encounter stressed in particular his contribution to the development of the Congregation during a time of social and institutional change and presented the publication of his letters to the FMA.

On Thursday, February 4th in the auditorium of the Generalate there was a celebratory encounter moderated by Sr. Piera Cavaglià Secretary General, entitled “Blessed Michael Rua and the Institute of the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians. A style of government faithful to Don Bosco and the signs of the times.” Those present included Mother Yvonne Reungoat and the General Council, the group of 22 neo-provincials who are in Rome for the formation meeting, many Sisters of the houses dependent on la Madre, those of the Roman Province and members of the Salesian Family.

Reflections were offered by Sr. Grazia Lo Parco FMA, professor of Church History with a report entitled: Don Rua and the FMA Institute: between continuity and innovation; Fr.Francesco Motto SDB,Director of The Salesian Historical Institute with The Letters of Don Rua to the FMA; Sr. M. Virginia Colombo FMA, professor of Literature and specialist in Salesian History with The journeys of Fr. Michael Rua; Sr. Claudia Daretti FMA, Provincial Secretary of Rome (IRO) with Don Rua and the Roman province of the FMA. The meeting was introduced by a greeting from the Mother General who opportunely stressed the event and its significance for the life and history of our Institute

At the conclusion of the round table discussion participants could visit the exhibit entitled Don Michael Rua, ‘another' Don Bosco, thought of and created by Fr. Francesco Motto and temporarily set up in the Generalate.
