Every day an input session and a sharing session will be animated online by the Small Team of SYM Europe and Middle East: Pablo Osorio from Spain, Marta Radic from Croatia and Jeanine Engerer from Malta. The input session consists of, alternatively, a Lectio Divina and a Lectio Salesiana, referring respectively to the Word of God and to the spiritual experience of Don Bosco. The preacher is going to be Fr Fabio Attard sdb. The language for the Lectio and for the sharing is English. Young people aged 18-30 are the first recipients of this initiative, but every person who is interested and able to join is welcome.
Every day, from April 14 to April 17, the input session will take place at 12pm GMT +2 (12 pm Rome time).

Even though the proposal was generated by the Small Team coordinating SYM Europe and Middle East, it is meant to be open to young people from all over the world. This is a proposal to make the best use of this time of confinement, which is a global experience at this stage of the pandemic, in order to stay united in prayer and feel God’s presence in our lives. A proposal to grow up rooted in Salesian Youth Spirituality, in order to prepare ourselves for a new time after confinement is over.
