This article explores two traditions on Marriage from the New Testament to Francis de Sales. It shows that although the Doctor of love’s position that marriage is a vocation and sacramental way to fully live in Jesus is at odds with the council of Trent, which holds that religious life is the highest state, the Salesian theology of marriage is in fact robustly represented in a multifaceted Patristic Tradition.

Francis J. Moloney – “Salesians beyond 2000” in “Journal of Salesian Studies”

In the article, Fr. Frank looks at the images of God and Community and poses questions that young people in Western Societies are facing on the threshold of the Third Millennium. He moves from the contemporary to the scriptural, and looks at the figure of Jesus and questions of discipleship as posed in the New Testament.

Salesian Youth Ministry Department – “Evangelising and educating: our apostolic identity” in “Salesian Youth Ministry”

Fullness of life and the happiness of human beings is the ultimate purpose of the plan of God. The Gospel of Christ shows great trust in humanity. It demands that we pay attention to the unique reality of every person and their willingness to accept their vocation and destiny in  Christ, the perfect man. The Gospel proposes the good news (the person of Christ) who invites everyone to share in Christ’s sonship, the foundation of the freedom and dignity of every  person. Don Bosco educated and evangelised by carrying out a project of holistic development. He saw education as the growth of the person, with all the means necessary to assist the  person. Evangelisation inspires people to the fullness of life offered in Jesus and enlightens  them in its pursuit, always respecting the developing conscience of each person. Finally,  regarding the choice of fi eld of ministry, we are sent to the poor, especially the poorest, and to ordinary class environments, where we seek to humanise and evangelise the culture.
