    John Bosco had one of his many significant dreams on the night of December 6 in It was 20 years after Dominic Savio’s death. In the dream, Don Bosco said, he appeared to be standing on a hill, looking over an immense crystal blue plain that stretched as far as he could see.   Most of the book deals with Dominic’s time in the Oratory in Turin, Don Bosco’s school to educate young men. At Dominic was referred to the Oratory by a teacher. The boy’s health was not good, but Don Bosco admitted him for his virtue and enthusiasm. Dominic put his heart into his school work, observing all house rules diligently.

    These fascinating dreams involve prophecy and reading of hearts, with a powerful spiritual message. Includes: To Hell and Back, Two Boys Attacked by a Monster, The Snake and the Rosary, and many more. These dreams led to many conversions and will instruct.   Italy – “Giovannino’s dream:” the dream of 9-year-old Don Bosco told to children 12 July (ANS – Rome) – “Giovannino’s Dream” is the first e-color book created by the “Salesians for Social Work – SCS / CNOS Federation”, a proposal for young children to read and color.

    Stark, terrifying, it ultimately represented to Don Bosco’s boys the same outreach of Mercy that the Scrooge of fiction received–with the difference that what Don Bosco penned was no fiction, but Scriptural, dogmatic truth enhanced by experience.

There is also a picture of him on the first page of the book. The things shown to John Bosco were of the past, present and future. There was also quite a lot of symbolism in the dreams and as a result many have explanations so the reader will understand what the dreams are about. He had about documented dreams and this book represent 40 of /5().

John Bosco () was the recipient of many prophetic dreams, which are recorded in seven large volumes. These dreams were so vivid and so frequent that he often dreaded going to bed.

His most famous dream, "The Vision of the Two Columns", is reproduced below in his own words. The Forty Dreams of St. John Bosco details some of these dream-visions that he experienced.

John Bosco was an Italian priest who lived in the 19th century helping and educating youth, particularly disadvantaged young boys. Many of the vision-like dreams revolved around the state of the boys’ souls in his Oratory. (Prophetic Dream of St. John Bosco A.D.) On Sunday night, May 3 [], the feast of Saint Joseph's patronage, Don Bosco resumed the narration of his dreams: I have another dream to tell you, a sort of aftermath of those I told you last Thursday and Friday which totally exhausted me.

Call them dreams or whatever you like. The Salesian Society still exists today and is the second largest religious order in the world, continuing St. Bosco's mission of helping and educating poor and disenfranchised youth. The Prophecy of the Two Columns St. Don Bosco is also known for his many prophetic dreams which you can read about here.

His most famous dream regards future. (ANS - Rome) - "Giovannino's Dream" is the first e-color book created by the "Salesians for Social Work - SCS / CNOS Federation", a proposal for young children to read and story is divided into 8 illustrated tables and reflects the dream St. John Bosco had at the age of 9 which would later become the guideline for all his life with and for young people.

John Melchior Bosco (Italian: Giovanni Melchiorre Bosco; 16 August – 31 January ), popularly known as Don Bosco [ˌdɔm ˈbɔsko], was an Italian Roman Catholic priest, educator, and writer of the 19th century.

While working in Turin, where the population suffered many of the ill-effects of industrialization and urbanization, he dedicated his life to the betterment and education of. I am currently attempting to find the original source of a prophecy attributed to St.

John Bosco concerning the turn of the millennium, which is apparently related to his Dream of the Two prophecy seems to be genuine enough, having been quoted in Ted and Maureen Flynn's book Thunder of Justice (A), and also appears to be connected to Don Bosco's prophetic dream.

DON BOSCO - A MAN WITH A DREAM by Teresio Bosco THE LITTLE SHEPHERD A boy. Nine years of age and 15 sheep. Every day, after dinner, he would take up his stick and drive the animals towards the valley.

In a little bundle he had a lovely slice of white bread: his afternoon tea. January 31st is the feast day of St. John Bosco. John Bosco (also called Don Bosco) was a Catholic priest who lived in Italy in the 19th century. He is most famous for his work with troubled, city-dwelling male youth who became disenfranchised following the Industrial Revolution, and who often ended up living a life of petty crime.

In Saint John Bosco warned about “persecutions that are in store for the Church.” This had been revealed to him in a dream, which he told to four hundred boys. In the dream there was a great ship steered by the pope heading for pillars of the Eucharist and Mary amid storms and hostile enemy ships.

You may be familiar with the dream of St. John Bosco and the two pillars but many of you may not. I was looking at the Abbey-Roads 2 blog and it reminded me of the story. OnDon Bosco recounted that in a dream he had seen an immense sea on which a great many ships were arranged for battle against a larger and taller ship.

JOHN BOSCO’S DREAM OF THE TWO PILLARS “Ima gine yourself to be with me on the seashore, or better, on an isolated rock and not to see any patch of land other than that under your feet. On the whole of that vast sheet of water you see an innumerable fleet of ships in battle array.

The most frightful, but also the most salutary of these dreams occurred on Friday, April 10th. It is the account of this dream, which we have reprinted below. The reader will notice that, in this dream, Don Bosco is accompanied by a man who acted as the saint’s guide.

Don Bosco’s Vision of the Two Columns 2 Most of the prophecies of Don Bosco came to him during dreams, but just as in St.

Matthew’s Gospel, where St. Joseph was given instructions by angels during his dreams, it is clear that Don Bosco’s experiences were something much more than the sort of dreams most of us have when asleep. These are but two instances in the Bible where God spoke through dreams.

God still speaks to people through dreams. One such person was John Bosco (John Bosco is also known as Don Bosco. Don is a Spanish title for Father.) John Bosco was only nine years old when he had a dream that he could not forget.

It turned out to be prophetic. – by Pius Palathingal, sdb. One cannot understand Don Bosco without understanding his dreams. John Baptist Lemoyne, the one who collected most of the material which was used to write the Biographical Memoirs says: “Don Bosco and the word dream are correlative.

It is truly astounding how this phenomenon went on in his life for sixty years” (BM I, ). Don Bosco's dreams, visions, and prophecies is very amazing.

Especially his dreams about spiritual warfare and hell. I find the life of this Saint just amazing. Read more. 3 people found this helpful.

He also lived during a difficult time for both the world and the Church. Among the many accounts of his life, we read of a dream he shared on It comes to my mind frequently these days.

This book has been published as a part of a SEM VI project for the subject Entrepreneurship Management taught by Prof. Mamatha D’Souza in Don Bosco College, Kurla. - .33 This comment by Don Bosco indicates that he himself did not understand precisely the significance of the prophecy.

But according to St. John of the Cross, this is normally the case in such circumstances, (cf. Ascent of Mount Carmel, Book II, nn. ).Most of the prophecies associated with Don Bosco came to him during dreams, but just as in Matthew's Gospel where the process of Joseph being instructed by angels during dreams is described it is clear that Don Bosco's experiences were more than the sort of dreams most of us have when asleep.
