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.

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.

Carlo Socol – “The birth of the China province and the expansion of the salesian work in east Asia (1926-1927)” in “The beginning of the Salesian presence in east Asia”.

The China Mission, which started in 1906, was established as an autonomous entity on 1 January 1923, when the Visitatoria della China was erected, comprising 32 confreres and houses and works in Macao, Heung Shan and Shiu Chow. As new missions in Japan and Siam were being accepted or considered, the Sino-Japanese Province was erected on 28 May 1926. In December of that same year Fr. Pietro Ricaldone set out on a year-long extraordinary visitation of the Asian Missions.By the time the visitation ended in late 1927, there was a Salesian regional presence and a well established juridical structure in East Asia.

This brief paper intends to outline the juridical configuration and development strategies of the Salesian work in China and study the internal and external conditions that influenced its first expansion, in the years 1926-1927, in East Asia.

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.

Grazia Loparco – “The arrival of the daughters of Mary help of Christians in the far east” in “L’educazione salesiana in Europa negli anni difficili del XX secolo”

On this background, we see the great problems of inculturation; development of the Catholic Church in multi-religious contexts afflicted by the problems of international politics; relationships between missionary Religious Congregations, and, not the least, difficulties in communication and mutual understanding between these countries and the General Council resident in Italy.

Mara Borsi – La relazione educativa nell’Istituto Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice. Brevi note con particolare attenzione al magistero di Angela Vespa (1872 -1968)

La relazione educativa nel sistema preventivo è elemento di sintesi di tutto il processo educativo. Essa non è certamente l’elemento esaustivo del sistema, ma è condizione di attuazione del metodo e suo peculiare percorso metodologico. La relazione configurandosi nei percorsi della ragione, religione, amorevolezza garantisce l’unitarietà e l’efficacia del metodo.

Francesco Casella – “L’educazione salesiana dal 1880 al 1922. Istanze ed attuazioni in diversi contesti. Un bilancio”, in “L’educazione salesiana dal 1880 al 1922. Istanze ed attuazioni in diversi contesti. Volume II. Relazioni Regionali: America”

Se l’intreccio fra tradizione e modernizzazione era stato un tratto caratteristico del modello salesiano all’epoca di don Bosco, lo fu altrettanto durante il rettorato dei suoi due successori? Quali furono le modalità varie e forse anche contraddittorie, attraverso cui il modello della “pedagogia povera” di Valdocco e di Mornese si è tradotto nella realtà educativa del mondo salesiano? Quale tipo di “inculturazione” pedagogico-spirituale ebbe luogo all’epoca per aderire alle concrete esigenze del luogo, senza con ciò venir meno all’uniformità ricercata sempre come garanzia di unità e di fedeltà allo spirito del fondatore?».

Carlo Nanni – “Educazione”, in “Progetto Educativo Pastorale”

Nella storia umana c’è stato sempre un tempo per allevare, formare, educare. Tuttavia l’emergenza del fatto educativo sembra essere una caratteristica dell’età moderna, concomitante all’affermazione della centralità dell’uomo nel cosmo, all’accentuazione delle sue capacità operative e trasformatrici del reale mediante la ragione, la scienza, la tecnica.
