RMG - Letter from the Rector Major to Salesians in view of Synod on Youth

28 July 2017

(ANS - Rome) - "Before the convocation of this Synod and on publication of this Preparatory Document, how do we feel challenged in our charismatic experience?" This is the question asked by the Rector Major, Fr Ángel Fernández Artime, in a letter to all his confreres across the globe in view of the forthcoming Synod of Bishops on "Young people, faith and vocational discernment" (October 2018).

Acknowledging the present season of the Church as "a time favorable for our service and our ecclesial communion," the Rector Major examines, first, the fundamental structure of the Synod's Preparatory Paper and urges for it to be studied in depth and reflections shared at various levels; he also reminds everyone to submit the answers to the Questionnaire attached to the Preparatory Document to the Youth Ministry; and finally he poses three questions specific to Salesian environments.

The full text of the letter is available at www.sdb.org.
