Santiago Rodríguez Mancini, FSC, MA


The author invites us to consider the history of the creation of a document of the District of Argentina-Paraguay that served as the basis for Lasallian Formation for the Mission: The Pilgrim’s Handbook. In doing so, he puts in context its birth and clarifies both the origin of the vocabulary that seeks to renew the approach to the formation of Brothers and Lay Partners and to highlight some of its main concepts and notions, particularly the idea that experiences are the content of formation.
