The book by Fr Pietro Braido, SDB, and edited by Fr Francesco Casella, SDB, outlines a spiritual and pedagogical itinerary whose focal point is Don Bosco, not the activity of Don Bosco, but his being: the priest of the young and founder of institutes of consecrated men and women, apostles of youth.
By Ludovica Maria Zanet
Who is a saint? Those who experience full configuration to Christ and witness to it in the Church and before every person. Canonized saints are those whose holiness is demonstrated with proof: heroic virtues or martyrdom, the reputation of holiness and of miracles. In short, they are people who were exemplary in living and in dying, and have an ability to intercede effectively before God, for the true good of man.
In this book, the author, Fr Raj Mariasusai, SDB, declares that `watching world cinema is alike, going around the globe, visiting places, and meeting people`.
This book is a joint collaboration of the Departments for Formation and for Social Communication. Through various Salesian authors, the book presents the theological/biblical basis of communication and how Don Bosco had implemented them during his lifetime. The other sections describes the good practices in some of our Salesian presences and how, now, we Salesians (at personal, communitarian and provincal levels) ought to be present in this "digital continent of communication network" which is most frequented by the young.
The contents of the book are also available in the www.sdb.org website.
