We always are on the lookout for vocations to the Salesian way of life but we perhaps do not pay sufficient attention to ensure that this vocation is nurtured. We prefer to have a 'hybrid Salesian'... someone who has not yet really passed through the formative stages of a vocation to life, to his Christian calling, so as to enable him to better understand and cherish his Salesian vocation. This way we may have vocations but not deep-rooted. And what better way to 'cultivate' these vocations than our own settings, places we carry out our ministry.
