Don Bosco Publications in the UK Releases New Book

New Book  The Roots Of The Spirituality Of Saint John Bosco

Don Bosco Publications in the UK has announced the publication of The Roots of the Spirituality of Saint John Bosco by Fr. Giuseppe Buccellato, SDB, translated from Italian. This study examines the influence of other saints in the spiritual and apostolic life of the founder of the Salesians.

The book offers an intelligently documented study on the much-debated but least explored subject of the spirituality of St. John Bosco. Fr. Buccellato brings this topic to the fore by carefully considering an invaluable selection of documentary evidence from six important figures in the Catholic Church who had a strong influence on the life and spirituality of Don Bosco: St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Philip Neri, St. Francis de Sales, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Alphonsus Maria de’ Liguori, and Don Bosco’s teacher and guide, St. Joseph Cafasso.

In the space of 192 pages, we are presented with a great wealth of sources and reflections, useful to the reader to understand better the value and meaning of Don Bosco’s spiritual and apostolic experience in society and in the Church.

Fr. Buccellato, a Salesian priest of the Sicilian Province, is a teacher of spiritual accompaniment, liturgical spirituality, and Christian prayer at St. Paul’s Theological College in Catania and at St. Thomas Theological Institute of Messina. He already has several publications regarding Don Bosco in print.

The Roots of the Spirituality of Saint John Bosco has a list price of ₤14.

*Salesiana Publishers will order some copies, price to be determined.
