  • THE MEMORY OF THE FUTURE. We have a dream that is our greatest wealth

    THE RECTOR MAJOR’S MESSAGE, Card. Angel Fernandez Artime, SDB

    Two hundred years ago, a little nine-year-old boy, poor and with no future but to be a farmer, had a dream. He recounted it to his mother, grandmother, and brothers in the morning, who found it funny. Grandma concluded, “Pay no attention to dreams.” Many years later, that boy, John Bosco, wrote: “I agreed with my grandmother. However, I was unable to cast that dream out of my mind.”
