St John Bosco’s Dream: The Two Pillars of a Safe Harbor in Life

The Two Pillars Dream by Matthew Brook

The Two Pillars Dream by Matthew Brook

A majestic ship, representing the Church and commanded by the Pope, was defending itself amid stormy seas from an opposing fleet. Innumerable enemy ships tried to sink the Church using everything in their arsenals, including writings or books or inflammable materials.

Safe Harbor Dream of St John Bosco

In the immense expanse of sea, two mighty columns of great height arise a little distance from each other. On the top of the higher and bigger column stands the Sacred Host of great size and beneath is a placard with the words: Salus Credentium – “Salvation of the faithful.” On the top of the other column was a statue of the Immaculate Virgin with a placard with this inscription: Auxilium Christianorum – “Help of Christians.”

The Pope tries with all his might to steer the ship toward the two columns to anchor to them. Whenever the enemy strikes a formidable blow against the ship, a gentle breeze blows from the two columns repairing the damage to the Church.

Ultimately, the Church finds safe harbor between the two Pillars:

First Pillar: Devotion to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament
Second Pillar: Devotion to Our Blessed Mother
