DMA 2015

Personal and community journeys this year will be guided by the Chapter event, defined as an experience of the Holy Spirit and ongoing education. To each FMA community it entrusted concrete choices and action steps for the future. The title of the Chapter Document Broaden the Vision-Missionaries of Hope and Joy with the Young is a call and commitment to bring to reality the lived experience characterized by a strong missionary dynamism. The DMA magazine places itself in this view, and will accompany the FMA, laity, and young people in the process of the assimilation and translation of the vital content that emerged from the recent GC XXIII held in Rome.

Some aspects of the document will be studied especially in the Dossier entitled Broaden the Vision. This will serve as a leitmotif and will urge us to scrutinize the reality and the world with new eyes. The historic moment in which we are living is also rich in signs and invitations. In particular, the Year of Consecrated Life and the Bicentennial of the birth of Don Bosco are gifts and appeals to render our identity as consecrated persons more luminous in the Church and today’s society.

This year DMA presents new articles that touch topical issues. Peace is the Way to get to know actual situations of conflict through the witness of FMA and laity who are taking concrete steps to promote a culture of Peace. The page on The Word contributes toward facilitating prayer with the young people and the laity, while the article Charism and Leadership presents the characteristics of a person who fills a dual role as animator and community member, with efficacious leadership with charismatic reference to some FMA models. The themes on Consecrated Life find a place in the articles in Women in the Context with the presentation of the beauty and richness of a femininity which, knowingly accepted, give color and warmth to the joy of one’s identity of consecrated. In the Communicating section, however, the theme of consecration is compared to today’s society and with the Magisterium of the Church.

Finally, in the Insert of each issue the Millennium Development Goals are presented from the struggle against hunger and poverty to environmental protection, from the promotion of women’s rights to the defeat of infant mortality…challenges that cannot be ignored.

Our magazine wants to broaden our vision, to be a formation tool not only for the FMA, but also for the many laypersons and young people who frequent our houses. Furthermore, it can also become a help for community animators, and educators who are called to be, with the young, missionaries of hope and joy.

Have a good year, therefore, in company with the DMA magazine!
