    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.

    “The book Be holy as I am holy in Marriage written by Dr. Zacharias Mattam is an authentic contribution in the field of theology of marriage. The book expresses the biblical, theological and pastoral dimensions of marriage and family life". (from the Foreword to the book by Rev. Mar Joseph Kallarangatt D.D., Bishop of Palai) "The author beautifully weaves in theological strains with biblical references the greatness and holiness of the Sacrament of marriage expressed in the celebration of the three altars by which every Christian couple is led to the heavenly abode of God Himself" (Most Rev. Peter Machado D.D., Archbishop of Bangalore).

    The Rectors are key figures in the renewal of the Congregation of the Salesians of Don Bosco. They play a key role in the educative and pastoral ministry among young people. They are the key to the much-desired ongoing formation that must take place in our religious communities, and by extension also in our educative and pastoral communities. This Manual is therefore addressed primarily to them – and to all those who are involved in their formation, beginning from Provincials and their Councils. But this new Manual is also addressed to all Salesians and to all the members of each Salesian religious community. The Rector is defined in our Constitutions as a brother among brothers, and this is how the Church wants it to be, when not neglecting the duty of governance.

    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.

    The in-depth study of The Healing of a Boy with an Unclean Spirit (Mk 9:14-29) by Dr. James Kadankavil offers fresh and new insights into Sacred Scripture. His thorough knowledge of Greek has enabled him to effectively expound the Markan narrative. A choice bibliography and extensive footnotes further enriches this work of excellence. This volume contains invaluable information on miracles and exorcisms to which Jesus dedicated much of his public ministry. By comparing this story with the parallel narratives in Matthew and Luke, the author highlights the Markan distinctiveness of exorcism. The readers are given also a panoramic view of the entire Gospel of Mark. After depicting the bewildering and paradoxical attitude of the crowds – often enthusiastic towards Jesus’ proclamation but also hostile at times – Kadankavil brings into relief the non-negotiable elements of true Christian discipleship. This relevant and groundbreaking contribution to understanding exorcism and discipleship is highly recommended for scholars and amateurs alike.
