Roche offers us a reflection on Salesian evangelization and how this is seen to share with the Church and the global community the precise and specific gifts that the Salesian Spirituality of accompaniment offers the world of youth ministry and education.
His excursus begins at the Second Vatican Council and moving on to recent times and deals with the theme of the new evangelization in dialogue with today’s globalization and how it can actually “speak” to so “many cultures, languages, and ideologies.”
Building on Church documents and on the works of contemporary writers on the subject, Fr. Roche leads us to reflect on how the Salesian evangelization is responding in the cultural changes of today’s world, especially in a postmodern and a globalized world.
