Looking back at Flame 2017

Flame2017Page 500

 

In the Summer issue of Don Bosco Today, the UK's Salesian Bulletin, we look back at the amazing Flame 2017 gathering of young Catholics. Our Province is a major supporter of Flame, and the hundreds of young people from Salesian schools and projects attended with their teachers, chaplains, youth leaders, Salesian Sisters and SDBs. 

 

A Catholic youth gathering and a Salesian cardinal both trending on Twitter on the same day. Who’d have thought? Well, to those of us at the SSE Arena at Wembley on Saturday 11th March for Flame 2017, it wasn’t much of a surprise.

One of the many highlights of Flame 2017 last weekend was hearing Cardinal Charles Maung Bo, the very first Cardinal of Myanmar and a Salesian. At the end of the event, Salesian Link was delighted to spend a few moments in conversation with him.


Cardinal Bo began our conversation, of course, by speaking of Don Bosco’s devotion to the young: "Don Bosco loved all young people. He said that he loved them for the fact that they are young, but he especially cared for those who are abandoned and have lost all hope, and that is why he founded the Salesians."
