Hong Kong - Training Seminar for Formators
Hong Kong - November 2019 - The Formation Seminar for Formators of the East Asia-Oceania Region is taking place from 20 to 23 November in Shaukeiwan on the theme "The Spiritual History of St. John Bosco", led by the Salesian Fr Giuseppe Buccellato. His book "The roots of the spirituality of St. John Bosco" offers a study on a topic that has been little explored in the spirituality of the Saint of the Young, bringing to light the role of six important figures of the Catholic Church who have had a strong influence on the life and on the spirituality of Don Bosco. The other topics discussed are the experience of Don Bosco in spiritual accompaniment, the value of meditation and the Spiritual Exercises in his life, the origins of the Salesian Society, and finally, the laity working with Don Bosco for the salvation of the young. The 40 participating Salesians, coming from various Provinces, can thus access a great wealth of sources and reflections to understand the value and meaning of Don Bosco's spiritual and apostolic experience in society and in the Church.
