    This document is the fruit of collaboration between the Formation and Youth Ministry departments of our Congregation. Spiritual accompaniment, as is becoming more and more clear to us, is central to both youth ministry and formation. At the request of the Rector Major and his Council, the two departments embarked on a fruitful collaboration that involved an extensive exercise of listening to young Salesians and to their spiritual guides. This document is addressed, therefore, to all those who are involved in different ways in the processes of initial formation: spiritual guides, formation guides and confessors; Rectors of those in initial formation. At the core of the document is the invitation to formators and spiritual guides to be truly and genuinely Salesian.

    In the recent years, in India we have witnessed an unprecedented transformation of the ethnic, linguistic and ritual composition of the local church, particularly in the urban areas. People belonging to various liturgical traditions, linguistic groups and ethnic backgrounds frequent the same parish community or live under its territorial jurisdiction. This extraordinary situation, largely resulting from an augmented migration flow, calls for a meaningful intervention on the part of the Church so as to make it a mutually enriching experience of faith for the migrants and for the non-migrant members of the receiving community. This research is an attempt to assess the quality of relationships and interconnectedness that exist in the context of migration, particularly among the youth within the ecclesial communities in India and to propose the possibility of an intercultural ministry to the Catholic migrant youth in the pluralistic urban context of India by re-visioning the Catholic youth ministry in urban India utilizing the “Integrative Hospitality” way.

    The author has made a study on James William Fowler who is the father and pioneer of the faith development theory and his name has become synonymous with theory of faith development. He has identified six stages of faith-growth extending well to the life span of the human person from infancy to adulthood. This study makes a thorough research into Fowler’s concept of faith and its development, through a careful analysis of the basic sources of the theory, from the theological sources of Richard H. Niebuhr and Paul Tillich and from the psychological sources of the theories of Erik Erikson, Daniel Levinson, and the cognitive structural developmental theories of Jean Piaget and Lawrence Kohlberg and from the sources from comparative religion from the theory of Wilfred Cantwell Smith. The author also presents the developmental stage theory of religious judgment of Friz Oser and applies the contributions of the theory of faith development to faith education.
