With Don Bosco and with the Times – An analysis of his Circular Letters (1922-1931)
In this volume, Fr. Martino Dai Loc Nguyen masterfully organizes the content of Blessed Philip Rinaldi’s circular letters around key elements of the Salesian Style and spirit: attachment to Don Bosco and his single-minded desire for the glory of God and the salvation of souls, active participation in Salesian family life and Church life, piety and good human and spiritual formation. Significant, too, are his introductory chapters giving the highlights of Fr. Rinald’s life and describing the civil and ecclesial setting in which his teachings reside.
