RECAP OF THE SALESIAN FAMILY SPIRITUALITY DAYS 2022 & RESOURCES FOR STRENNA 2022 and ST. FRANCIS DE SALES

ALL-IN-ONE RESOURCE PAGE: https://donboscosalesianportal.org/salesian-family-spirituality-days-2022/ FROM ANS: Italy – SF Spirituality Days 2022: “We shall do all for love, nothing by constraint” (ANS – Turin) – The final session of the Salesian Family Spirituality Days is a more delicate moment: the extensive and fervent work of the regional groups of the previous days must arrive at a synthesis that indicates the “news” that emerged and the “intentions” for the year that opens. Just as Don Bosco wanted to impress a “strong thought” on his boys, so the Rector Major today must also be able to ascertain whether the thread that binds the 32 Groups to common inspiration is sufficiently robust, to ensure unity of purpose, and long enough, to envelop a reality extended to 134 countries. The “miracle” occurs: in the minute and a half assigned to each referent, it emerges that the topic has been adequately mulled over, both individually and by the 150 participants, and above all that each returns with a rich baggage to share in their respective Groups.
