Francesco Bodrato – Epistolario. Introduzione, testo critico e note a cura di Brenno Casali

L’ Epistolario di don Francesco Bodrato, già pubblicato nel 1988, ha aperto le edizioni critiche della sezione Missioni dell’istituto Storico Salesiano. È stata una scelta intenzionale: è apparso infatti ovvio che su altri salesiani più rappresentativi dovesse prevalere l’Epistolario di chi, nella breve ma intensa presenza «americana» (1876-1880), ha svolto una funzione significativa in un memorabile momento della storia della Società Salesiana.

Domenico Tomatis – Epistolario (1874-1903). Edición crítica, introducción y notas por Jesus Borrego

«A la historia de las misiones salesianas […] faltan capítulos importantes por escribir, aún de los diez miembros que protagonizaron la expedición pionera. Pese al siglo transcurrido se tiene una idea parcial de aquella empresa […] y de sus protagonistas, cuyo elenco recoge una exigua lista –Cagliero, Fagnano[…] – de algunos nombres señeros […].

Francesco Bodrato – Epistolario ([1857]-1880). Edición crítica, introducción y notas por Jesus Borrego

El Epistolario de don Francesco Bodratto  abre el apartado « ediciones críticas » de la sección-misiones del Instituto Histórico Salesiano. Ha sido una opción querida. Aún reconociendo que tal primacía correspondería a otros salesianos más representativos que él en el alborear misionero —card. Cagliero, mons. Lasagna, mons. Costamagna, mons. Fagnano… —, sin embargo el escaso lustro transcurrido por don Bodratto en tierra argentina — fácilmente abarcable — y la coyuntura histórica en el que lo transcurre, le otorgan el honor de abrir brecha en la publicación de fuentes misioneras. Continue reading “Francesco Bodrato – Epistolario ([1857]-1880). Edición crítica, introducción y notas por Jesus Borrego”

Pier Giorgio Gianazza – “Don Rua e la fondazione salesiana di Alessandria d’Egitto”, in “Don Michele Rua primo successore di Don Bosco. Tratti di personalità, governo e opere (1888-1910)”.

Presentiamo in sintesi gli ultimi sviluppi della casa di Alessandria, fino alla seconda visita di don Rua nel 1908, a soli due anni prima della sua morte. I primi 65 allievi (33 studenti e 32 artigiani) del primo anno scolastico 1897-98 andranno crescendo di anno in anno, fino ad
arrivare ai 1.200 di oggi. Nel 1907 si iniziò finalmente anche l’oratorio festivo, che ha sempre prosperato fino ad oggi.

Laura ChauPui Har – “Winding road…steady steps. Salesian charism in the first 30 years of FMA in China” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

The paper sheds light on the contribution of the FMA to the advance of the Salesian spirit in China through their availability, sacrifice, indomitable courage in facing severe challenges and above all their fidelity to the spirit of “Da mihi animas, cetera tolle” by offering to youth and the needy services in keeping with the charism of the institute and in response to the needs of the place and time.

Gaetano Compri – “Implantation of the salesian charism in Japan. Reflections of Fr Cimatti on the formation of personnel in loco” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

The first nine Salesian missionaries arrived in Japan on 8 February 1926 under the leadership of Fr Vincenzo Cimatti. They were entrusted with the two provinces of Miyazaki and Oita, far away from the big cities, where they succeeded the missionaries of the Foreign Missions of Paris (MEP).

Mathew Kapplikunnel – “The implantation of the salesian charism in India: ideals, challenges, answers, results” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

The phase of implantation, expansion and initial consolidation of Salesian presence in India may be considered to be the period from 1906 to 1951/52, i.e. from the arrival of Salesians until the establishment of the two provinces of the North and the South. This paper proposes to study the ideals that led the Salesians during this period, the challenges they faced, their response to these challenges and the results they attained.

John Nguyen Van Ty – “Salesian charism in Vietnam. 39 years of sowing and growth in the stormy history of the country” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

How the Salesian Charism has been implanted and taken root in a country is indeed a very interesting and at the same time a very challenging theme. In the case of Viet Nam the planting and the growing processes seem to be neatly cut, surrounded by the turbulent events of the history of modern Viet Nam.

Carlo Socol – “The implantation of the salesian charism in China (1906-1936): ideals, challenges, answers and results” in “Implantation of the Salesian charism in Asia – Ideals, challenges, answers, results”

The Salesians landed in Macao on 13 February 1906 to take over the management of a diocesan orphanage and set up a school of arts and crafts, with the aim of expanding gradually into China proper, which they first did in 1911, shortly after the Portuguese republican revolution forced the them out of the enclave.

Gaetano Compri – “The beginning and the development of the salesian work in Japan” in “The beginning of the Salesian presence in east Asia”.

To write this paper, I used a great part of the materials gathered by the deceased Fr. Alfonso Crevacore in the “Cimatti Museum” of Tokyo (CMT), situated in the Salesian Seminary of Chofu. It deals specially with the mail correspondence. The originals are found according to the container, or in the Vatican Archives, or in the Central Salesian Archives of Rome (ASC) or in the archive of the China Province in Hong Kong or in the said Cimatti Museum. Fr. Mario Rassiga’s manuscript “Breve cenno storico dell’opera salesiana in Cina” (vol. II, chapter XCIX, pp. 125-136), which reported the correspondence between the Holy See and the Superiors in Turin before the foundation of the Salesian work in Japan. One should note that the actual Japanese Province, up to I January 1928, was part of the Visitatoria of China, of which the superior was Fr. Ignazio Canazei.

Francesco Motto – “Salesian missionary activity while blessed Filippo Rinaldi (1921-1931) was Rector maior with particular reference to eastern Asia” in “The beginning of the Salesian presence in east Asia”.

On 6 February l922,Pius XI (1939) ascended the Papal throne: he would become known as a “Pope of the Missions” (as was his predecessor, Benedict XV). Two months later, on 24 April, Fr. Filippo Rinaldi ( 5 December 1931) was elected Rector Major: his ten years in office would be recalled for the great re-launching of the Salesian missionary movement. After a rapid glance at the “missionary policy” of the Papacy during the same period, we shall concentrate on that.

Msgr. Versiglia was forming a group of young catechists to send to the various mission districts, to help the missionaries, for the religious instruction of the women and of children.
