In this letter, considered by the Rector Major as a "colloquial letter" or "fraternal and spontaneous communication", it refers to issues concerning the GC28 and the young, the situation of the Congregation and several situations for reflection and the theme of "being missionary", as a source of hope.
"Following a path of fidelity", is a letter that speaks from the heart of the Father to the hearts of his children, from the heart of the Rector Major to the hearts of the Salesians, with the aim of preparing profoundly for the next GC28.
The Rector Major begins the letter with the testimony of young people. A young man writes: "We need Salesians with conviction, dream, passion, who can be living witnesses of the love of Christ and can be for us an example of all that Don Bosco professed. The second testimony, more eloquent and profound: "Many of us do not imagine a life without Don Bosco, without Salesians, and we can say that we would not be in love with God in a 'crazy' manner, full of laughter and great experiences, without him.
