RMG - Deliberations on General Chapter 28
By ANS (Rome)
Mumbai, Apr. 2. (ANS - Rome) - In the thought of the ''Salesian Good Night'' offered to the community of the Central Salesian See, yesterday, 28 March 2018, the Rector Major, Father Angel Fernandez Artime, presented the decisions taken with the General Council regarding General Chapter 28 (CG28).

''At the end of the Plenary Intermediate Council we have important news for the Congregation and the Salesian Family,'' the Rector Major said. ''Today we have concluded the Intermediate Council and can give the news regarding the General Chapter 28.''

First, he read from his letter with information soon to be released with the next few, and then he spoke of the greatness of this forthcoming event and the meaning of the site where the Chapter will meet.

The first element presented by the Rector Major was the CG28 theme. ''We have chosen as the title: What kind of Salesian formation is needed for the youth of today? With this theme we want to discuss the profile of the Salesian of today and also of tomorrow, to enable us to give the best possible answers to young people, especially the poorest and those who need it most ... We will also have to face an important number of judicial issues with which we intend to help the mission, issues that need attending to nowadays.''

He spoke of the location for the celebration of the CG28: it will be held in Valdocco, in Turin. This great Salesian event begins on Sunday 16 February 2020 and end on 4 April. Finally, he declared, ''As Regulator of General Chapter 28, I have appointed Father Stefano Vanoli.'' Father Vanoli is currently Secretary of the General Council.

''What should the profile of the Salesian be today and in the future?'' asked Father A.F. Artime ''Today's reality is not the same as forty years ago and even the answers cannot be the same. We want to answer faithfully to the young people of today and of tomorrow. Young people today live different situations compared to forty years ago ... Today's young people live different situations, even from those of only a few years ago. They are immersed in a digital world, in the exciting world of youth voluntary work, in the reality of vocational training, in the painful reality of exploited young people, of young immigrants. These realities have a force unknown to us, situations that we did not talk about 30 or 40 years ago.''

''Today the Salesian mission in the world is carried out, thank God, by being immersed in the realities of our missions shared between Salesians and laity ... and through fidelity we must open ourselves to this reality ... I invite you to pray from this moment.''
