Pietro Stella – Don Bosco nella storia della religiosità cattolica. Volume I: Vita e opere

Chi scorre la letteratura fiorita attorno alla figura di S. Giovanni Bosco non tarda ad accorgersi ch’essa ha una traiettoria che ha avuto il suo culmine negli anni della sua beatificazione e canonizzazione. Se si dovesse optare per una priorità, nel costruire una storia del sentire religioso, ci pare che questa sia da assegnare all’essere e al suo evolversi.

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.

Francesco Motto – Start afresh from Don Bosco. Meditations for a Spiritual Retreat

And so the main object of our reflections will be the figure of Don Bosco, a figure we shall try to make contact with, not so much to understand his external actions which we all know about already, but rather to understand the conditions, the motivations, the spirit which led him to make specific choices, to work in a specific way, to write about particular matters, to reach a particular form of holiness which is specifically his own, different in some ways from that of other saints.
