Bernard Francis Grogan – Dominic Savio and England: another hypothesis

Prompted by the visit of the Holy Father and the Beatification of Cardinal Newman in England in September 2010, the author considers Dominic Savio’s wellknown dream about England and the Catholic Faith, and, after considering the explanations provided by others, offers another hypothesis based on Don Bosco’s own considerable personal knowledge and interest in events in that country at the time.

Sollecitato dalla visita del Santo Padre e dalla beatificazione del cardinal Newman in Inghilterra nel settembre 2010, l’autore considera il ben noto sogno di Domenico Savio sull’Inghilterra e la fede cattolica, e, tenute presenti le spiegazioni offerte da altri, offre una propria ipotesi basata sulla personale conoscenza ed interesse di don Bosco circa eventi dell’epoca avvenuti in quella nazione.
