Salesians – Contemplatives in Action
By Michael J Cunningham SDB
The recovery of the mystical experience is going to determine our future and it will shape, in a profound way, our ministry. Unless we recover the centre, we will lose our identity and the power to bring light and hope to the young.
At the centre, lies the experience of God’s love, the personal encounter with a God who reaches us, embraces us, in the person of Jesus. Don Bosco is an icon and a shining example of someone whose has experienced God’s divine love within his own story. Making this experience central to his existence, Don Bosco made sure that his experience became that of many. Mary Mazzarello, in her own unique way, takes up this story and develops it. Each one of us, in her and his own way, is also invited to make sure to enter this second phase of mystery: where the human story opens itself up to God’s mystic love.
