A New Rector Major for the Salesians

imageAfter discussing how “Fr. Angel Fernandez Artime [pictured], a Spaniard who most recently served as provincial in southern Argentina, was elected rector major of the Salesians of St. John Bosco March 25,” in several paragraphs, a story from CNA/EWTN concludes with these two paragraph.

As rector major, Fr. Fernandez will oversee the Salesians’ celebration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of their founder, St. John Bosco.

The celebrations will begin Aug. 16, 2014, and will end Aug. 16, 2015. In the midst of celebration, an exposition of the Shroud of Turin will take place, and it is possible Pope Francis will visit Turin next May to venerate the Shroud and take part in celebrating St. John Bosco.

I imagine that every story about the upcoming 200th anniversary of the of St. John Bosco’s birth will be tagged with the Shroud exposition.
