SPIRITUAL ACCOMPANIMENT Vol 01: An Educational and Spiritual Journey with Young People in the Way of Don Bosco
Spiritual accompaniment and discernment played a key role both in pedagogy and in the history of the Salesian family. St Francis de Sales and Don Bosco were great spiritual directors of their time. Their expertise in this area is evident in their practice and thought. This publication is the result of four study seminars held between 2010 and 2014, which were a response to the request to deepen and relaunch the service of spiritual harmony as an essential component of Salesian Youth Ministry. The topics addressed provide a space for reflection on today’s challenges, with a historical, pedagogical and spiritual approach. Throughout the various reports, many questions have been debated which can help in the service of Salesian spiritual and vocational accompaniment, with particular attention to the accompaniment of young people. In these pages, we can find pastoral guidelines and operative proposals to develop new plans for spiritual accompaniment.
