Italy - Meeting of Salesians of Quinquennium of "Mary Seat of Wisdom" Vice-Province

29 March 2023

Rome, Italy - March 2023 - On Saturday, March 25, the young priests in the quinquennium phase belonging to the communities of the Vice-Province of the Salesian Pontifical University gathered, warmly welcomed by the Salesian Theologians Community "Blessed Zeffirino Namuncurá," in Via della Bufalotta, for an intense morning of formation and sharing. The reflections were led by Ms. Antonia Salzano Acutis, mother of Blessed Carlo Acutis, who emphasized her son's relationship with the Eucharist and with the figure of the priest, inspiring an ever more intense Eucharistic devotion made up of assiduous prayer and consistency of life. The second moment, led by Fr. Francesco Marcoccio, Vicar of the Salesian Circumscription Central Italy (ICC), went over a reflection on the Eucharist as the culmination and source of Christian and Salesian life, with special mention of priestly ministry, through a comparison with the Magisterium, the writings of St. Francis de Sales, the priestly experience of Don Bosco, to the more current experience of the Servant of God and Salesian mystic Cooperator Vera Grita, proponent of the work of Living Tabernacles. "We are grateful for this focus on formation addressed to the priests of the quinquennium and to the UPS Vice-Province that allowed it, thanks to the presence and will of the Superior of the Vice-Province Fr. Arokiam Kanaga and his Vicar Fr. Giuseppe Ruta," said Fr. Tiziano Conti. The greeting of Director Fr Silvio Roggia, the fraternal and welcoming atmosphere of the Salesians of the theologate community, and the moments of community agape completed the unforgettable rendering of this formative moment.
