DB Novena Day 6
Day 6: Young People: Active and Responsible Members of the Community
Don Bosco found his first collaborators in the young who thus became, in a certain sense, co-founders of the Congregation… The Salesian treats young people with deep respect, meets them at their level of freedom, and treats them as active and responsible members of the educative and pastoral community. This is why the Salesian learns a style of listening, dialogue and personal and community discernment. And this applies not only to ministry among the young but also to our houses of formation, where “we learn to be Salesians.”
St. John Bosco, pray for us!
The readings of the day are taken from The Post General Chapter 28 Reflections by the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, SDB.
