Holy Father greeted by Salesians at Les Combes
Here is more on the vacation visit of the Holy Father to our Salesian House at Les Combes in the Val d'Aosta from ANS:
“I’m pleased to see you!” the Holy Father said when meeting Fr Pascual Chávez, Rector Major of the Salesians, as yesterday 13 July he arrived at Les Combes to welcome the Pope at the beginning of his stay in the Val d’Aosta.
The meeting was short and cordial. The Rector Major then introduced to the Holy Father the Salesians with him: Fr Cereda, Fr Martoglio, Fr Colombo, Fr Carlin, Fr Bartlomé, Fr Pellini and the Economer of the Salesian house of Châtillon, Bro. Scotto Tomaso.
“We are happy that you have returned here to Les Combes, this is your house. We shall accompany you with our prayers” concluded Fr Chávez.
On ANSchannel a short video is available showing the arrival of the Pope at Les Combes, welcomed by the civil, military and religious authorities, by the personnel of the house and by a group of the faithful who had come for the occasion. The video was made through the valuable collaboration of Stefano Bianco and Piero Giordano from Missoni Don Bosco – Media Centre in Turin.
