Jan Pietrzykowski – “L’arcivescovo Antoni Baraniak: salesiano zelante, vescovo indomito” in “Ricerche Storiche Salesiane”

Dagli esempi elencati si può concludere che l’arcivescovo Baraniak, fino alla fine della sua vita, si sentì un salesiano e molte volte ci diede prova di questo.

Thomas Anchukandam – “Kristu Jyoti college, Bangalore: the history and significance of the opening of the first Salesian institution in the archdiocese of Bangalore – Part II” in “Ricerche Storiche Salesiane”

Kristu Jyoti College, built and launched on its mission of theological formation of the Salesians in the whole of India, was envisioned and realized in a fast-changing post-colonial world which was throwing up daunting challenges for the Church and consecrated life in general and for the Salesian Congregation with its professed goal of catering to the young and the needy in particular and that at a time when newly independent India was seeking to find its place in the comity of nations.

Capitolo Generale XXVIII Salesiani di Don Bosco – “Quali salesiani per i giovani di oggi?”. Riflessione postcapitolare

Il documento, che giunge ora a tutti i confratelli attraverso questa pubblicazione, ha come sottotitolo “Riflessione postcapitolare” e non “Documenti capitolari”, come abitualmente avveniva in passato. Questo perché l’Assemblea capitolare non è arrivata all’approvazione finale del testo con una votazione. Solo alcune deliberazioni capitolari, specialmente quelle a carattere giuridico, hanno visto la luce nelle prime quattro settimane dei nostri lavori.
