Don Bosco's Vocation Dream

When John Bosco was 9, going on 10, he had a dream that made a remarkable impression upon him and that seems to have recurred later. Looking back at it many years later, he saw in it his calling to be a priest and an apostle for the young, or a "father and teacher of the young," as Pope John Paul II designated him. (JPII grew up in a parish in Krakow that was staffed by the SDBs and so was more than casually familiar with Don Bosco.)
Mike Massey of the New Rochelle Province's youth ministry office has put together Don Bosco's text narrating this dream with images done by Italian artist Nino Musio in this YouTube posting:
