John Roche – “Salesian evangelization. At the threshold of the bicentennial of Don Bosco’s birth – Part 2” in “Journal of Salesian Studies”

MaryJo Leddy explained that in her act of accompaniment with many of the young adults assisting in her ministry to the refugees, she found herself taking a lead from them. She has found a voice of conscience and concern in this generation. She is touched by their thirst and hunger for holiness and authenticity.

She is challenged by their desire for models, not for words. In many ways, it is their act of accompaniment that has changed her.
