“Education in love: affectivity and sexuality. How to accompany young people”

“Education in love: affectivity and sexuality. How to accompany young people” 08 June 2021 (ANS – Rome) – In the last two weeks of May and the first of June, delegates, consecrated persons and lay people from all the Provinces of the world participated in three formative sessions organized by the Youth Ministry Sector. This initiative was conceived in response to the need of the Provinces to form and share the pastoral and moral keys for the affective-sexual education of young people, thinking of educational criteria. The participation was very numerous and representative of the various realities: a total of about 580 people across three days. With great competence and skill, Professor Javier de la Torre introduced the participants to very delicate and significant issues on an educational-pastoral level, but also on a personal level. In the first meeting, the pastoral and moral keys for the affective sexual education of young people were provided. They started from a horizon in which there are insufficient models of sexuality education to arrive at principles of sexuality education that envisage a path of knowledge – as opposed to ignorance -, of openness and communication – as opposed to silence -, of attention and...

Pope Francis: I establish the lay ministry of Catechist

Apostolic Letter issued “Motu Proprio” by the Supreme Pontiff Francis Antiquum ministerium, instituting the ministry of catechist, 10 May 2021 Francis Motu Proprio [ DE  – EN  – ES  – FR  – IT  – PL  – PT ] APOSTOLIC LETTER ISSUED “MOTU PROPRIO” BY THE SUPREME PONTIFF FRANCIS “ANTIQUUM MINISTERIUM” INSTITUTING THE MINISTRY OF CATECHIST   1. The ministry of Catechist in the Church is an ancient one. Theologians commonly hold that the first examples are already present in the writings of the New Testament. The service of catechesis may be traced back to those “teachers” mentioned by the Apostle in writing to the community of Corinth: “Some people God has designated in the Church to be, first, apostles; second, prophets; third, teachers; then, mighty deeds; then, gifts of healing, assistance, administration, and varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work mighty deeds? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way” (1 Cor 12:28-31). Saint Luke begins his Gospel by stating: “I too have decided, after investigating everything accurately anew, to write it down in an orderly sequence for you, most excellent Theophilus, so...

Education in love: affectivity and sexuality. How to accompany young people

 One of the objectives indicated in the programming of the Youth Ministry Sector in the field of personal accompaniment is to train educators in the development and maturation of the affective and emotional world of young people. To this end, a four-phase path has been designed. In the first place, this theme was addressed and debated in the regional meetings of the Provincial Delegates for Youth Ministry. Their contributions and their open reflections, after a preliminary questionnaire, made it possible to collect clues for a deeper reading of the issue in each Salesian Region and, at the same time, they showed the need to delve deeper into this field. Those challenges of young people that require greater preparation and formation on the part of educators were also studied. In a second phase, the Youth Ministry Sector has designed three Webinars that respond to the needs of the Provinces. The themes are aimed at: sharing the pastoral and moral keys for the affective-sexual education of young people; thinking of educational criteria with reference to the focus on sexual diversity; finally, interpreting vulnerability, an essential characteristic of all minors. Thirdly, some good practices, aids and projects already existing in the Salesian educative-pastoral communities...
