Description:
Codified in Salesian texts since Vat II, animation is a quality, a service, a style, something which is a capacity of individual Salesians (capacitÓ dell'animazione), of leadership, something to be exercised in the community, e.g. the animazione della comunitÓ (animation of the community), or the animazione del CEP(animation of the Educative and Pastoral Community). A style of leadership. We speak of something also more structured as in the servizio di animazione (service of animation) or even organismi di animazione (animation structures, animation bodies such as commissions).
That being said, in English at least, the term is best avoided where possible, in favour of various synonyms, since the general public understands 'animation' as more to do with films, especially today when animated versions of classics are popular.

Term type ('EntryTerm' if no other applies)
(1) (2)   
[Initialisms like AGC are regarded as acronyms; a term like 'Bro.' is an abbreviation; an example of short form instead would be the main part of a very long book title (most of DB's book titles! 'Giovane Provveduto' is a short form). A loan term is not translated whereas a calque is. A blend is where two (or more) morphemes or 'word' parts have been combined to form a single term, as in the case of 'austraLasia'. Choose variant when there exists at least one other common form of the term. ]

[Archaic refers to terms that have fallen out of regular use. Deprecated indicates official disapproval or if not disapproval, official abandonment at least. A neologism is a term that has come into play relatively recently - say, since Vatican II, but the time frame can be flexible.]

Definition

[Certain terms are common in restricted parts of the Congregation. We have one 'prior' but only in INB; in some parts of Asia the Salesian community is called a 'convent', but not elsewhere]
