Ongoing formation implies so much - as we develop our understanding of the call that was ours at Baptism and re-affirmed through Religious Profession. Consider some possible routes to follow:
From Salesian beginnings, Early documents either primary (in translation) or comments on aspects of early Salesian times. The ones accessible from this link are contained on the site.
Applied materials - applications of Salesian thinking to education and evangelization:
the Pope's letter 'Iuvenum Patris' (Father of Youth),
Mentoring faith to seniors: a catechetical application,
Other Salesian e-resources
A site that will gradually become more and more helpful is the Centre for Salesian Spirituality at Don Bosco Hall, Berkeley USA.
Material directly related to Religious Life and Consecration;
Religious Life (summaries of chapters from Sandra Schneiders work),
Consecration (with a Salesian slant),
Documents (containing summarised versions of letters from Rector Major et al.),
Salesian Family or Salesians in general. There is an area here too for examining Salesian spirituality for lay people and pastoral animation, and for finding the text of Life of Don Bosco, Francis De Sales, Mamma Margaret. An excellent site, if you are looking for materials on St. Francis de Sales, can be found at the Oblates of St. Francis De Sales' Resource Center.
The world - a list of anything and everything - got any more to add to this?
