Don Bosco's First Dream

Young John Bosco had never had such a dream as this one! But, thankfully, he remembered this dream and it recurred several times in his lifetime. As we Salesians contemplate "returning to Don Bosco" it is most helpful for us to return to Don Bosco's first dream at the age of 9. Like young John Bosco we may not always understand what God is calling us to. But, like him, we should listen to the words of the Blessed Mother in the dream: "in good time you will understand everything!" The Rector Major shared this artistic expression of the first dream with us as he gave us the new Strenna for 2008. It is an excellent reminder of the heart of Don Bosco and of our charism!
