Italy – "Yeast... who?" - Presentation Strenna 2023 in PDF

19 January 2023

(ANS - Turin) - To facilitate the reading and presentation of the Rector Major's Strenna for 2023, "AS THE YEAST IN TODAY'S HUMAN FAMILY. The Lay Dimension of the Family of Don Bosco," and to highlight some of its essential nuclei, a presentation in 5 languages (Italian, English, Spanish, French and Portuguese) is now available to anyone interested. It was designed by a teacher from the Salesian Secondary School in Turin Valsalice, Prof. Elena Cristino, a member of the Salesian Family.

Divided into 14 segments, the presentation starts with a clarification of what yeast is and what ingredients are needed to produce the dough, and then delves into the issues most pertinent to the Salesian Family and its educational and evangelizing work. It also traces the path already taken with the Strennas of recent years and identifies the areas and commitments to which lay and consecrated persons are called to respond together.

The presentation is accessible and downloadable in PDF format by clicking on the corresponding hyperlinks:  IT – EN – ES – FR – PT

It can be a useful tool as an introduction to the text of the Strenna or as material for animation, but above all, it is valid as an incentive for personal reading of the full message of the Rector Major, available here on ANS in the various languages.
