Being Salesian - football, guitar and spiritual direction

"Personal accompaniment" - walking with the young - or simply what we still call spiritual direction: one of the great contemporary ways of being salesian. Something that goes clearly back to Don Bosco himself, but that somehow has probably dropped out of the personal and collective 'images' that we today carry of what it means to be Salesian. Our Youth Ministry department has been working on this theme for years already, and so has our Formation department. An idea whose time has come - or perhaps an idea that we are rediscovering. "The Salesian as spiritual director of young people" - and notice that we are not talking here only of senior salesians, "di una certa età."
