time I am greeting you from the airport in New Delhi. I am making an
animation visit to six of the Indian Provinces, a country with enormous
potential for communication from the SSCS perspective. From these
visits and from the reality we find in our Congregation, I confirm the
need for organisation and planning at province level that always keeps
in mind the four areas we all know about and then applies them in a
coordinated and decisive fashion: animation, formation, information and
production. We must not overlook what lies behind these - passion for
God and the salvation of the young and ordinary people, the authenticty
of life of the communicator, coordination of sectors involved in the
mission. We are not merely communications professionals, we are men and
women of God and in the case of the SDB, religious called and sent to a
mission as an institution.
Filiberto has just concluded a lengthy animation visit to a number of
Provinces in India. There was no combined meeting of SC Delegates
from all India on this occasion due to lack of ability to find a common
date -a date will soon be set for such a meeting in 2013. In this
newsletter, in the section below indicating upcoming meetings, readers
will note that a number of major gatherings of delegates for 2013 have
already been listed.
we so simply assert an intimate link between theology and
communications? Could the Salesian 'gift of the Spirit' exist without
this dimension? Is communications yet another subject that has to be
taught in our Salesian context, and at what level or levels,
specifically? And assuming it has a place in theological studies, where
does it fit most appropriately — under Moral theology? Fundamental?
Christology? Of course we can point to our Ratio, to the SSCS and other
documents for responses to these questions, but they are questions, or
at least some of them are, that go much wider than our Salesian
context, and we cannot be so sure we have the right answers anyway!
Congregation's website is about to unveil a new feature to replace the
FOCUS format which has presented Salesian provinces and activities over
a good number of years. The replacement feature, however, heads in quite a different direction. It will be called 'e-devotion' and is effectively an online invitation to pray.
