1867: Always fatherly

A pupil of the Oratory dreamt that Don Bosco was near him to help him. “I seemed to be standing near a narrow bridge which spanned a deep and murky torrent at a very great height. I was afraid to cross, but Don Bosco encouraged me and safely led me by the hand to the other side. As soon as he returned from Rome, I told him of my dream, and he said I was not to worry.” (BM VIII, 275-276)
