Italy – Prophecy of consecrated life and modern challenges: interview with Br. Paolo Zini, SDB, for the cycle "Which Salesians for today's young people?"

17 February 2022

(ANS - Rome) - The identity of Don Bosco's Salesians stems from religious consecration: it was the young people who agreed to take their vows with Don Bosco to give the original form of the Salesian identity. Returning to the roots of Salesian consecrated life is the implicit task in the journey of rediscovering the identity indicated by the Rector Major for this six-year term. Pope Francis has repeatedly reminded all consecrated persons, and the Salesians in particular, to take on the effort of the prophecy of their charism.

The fourth meeting of the cycle "Which Salesians for today's young people?" promoted by the Opera Tabernacoli Viventi Study Center, in collaboration with the Conference of the Salesian Provinces of Italy (CISI) - Formation Sector, will feature an interview with Br. Paolo Zini, Salesian, philosopher and Dean of the "Paul VI" Study Center affiliated to the Salesian Pontifical University, on the prophecy of consecrated life in the Church and on today's challenges for Salesian consecrated life facing young people from all over the world.

A mysterious and bumpy journey into which a Salesian brother can lead us, one who has always been committed to studying and understanding the relationship between the Christian faith and modern life, between Don Bosco's idea of education and the youth of our time, between the believing conscience and secularized humanity.

The appointment, live, is for Saturday 19 February, from 9 to 10:15 (UTC + 1) on the Facebook page of Don Bosco Italia, as always with the possibility of asking questions for those participating in the live broadcast.
