YOUNG SALESIANS AND ACCOMPANIMENT
This book presents the results of an international survey conducted among the Salesians of Don Bosco in initial formation, with the aim of understanding what happens in the area of personal spiritual accompaniment. Responses came in from 4000 young Salesians and more than 500 spiritual guides and mentors from almost 60 nationalities and hundreds of formation communities around the world. The interviews were conducted by means of questionnaires in Italian, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Polish. The survey was undertaken at the behest of the Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco, Fr Ángel FernándezArtime, who wished, with his council, to take into account the experiences of young Salesians in initial formation, as well as postulants and those who had recently concluded the process of initial formation, besides also listening to those offering the service of spiritual accompaniment. It therefore not only leaves open but also provides the possibility for further study in an interpretive and prospective key.
