Mimpi Don Bosco, Rahasia Fatima dan Paus Yohanes Paulus II

"Try to picture yourselves with me on the seashore, or, better still, on an outlying cliff with no other land in sight. The vast expanse of water is covered with a formidable array of ships in battle formation, prows fitted with sharp spear-like beaks capable of breaking through any defence. All are heavily armed with cannons, incendiary bombs, and firearms of all sorts - even books - and are heading toward one stately ship, mightier than them all. As they try to close in, they try to ram it, set it afire, and cripple it as much as possible.
"This stately vessel is shielded by a flotilla escort. Winds and waves are with the enemy. In this midst of this endless sea, two solid columns, a short distance apart, soar high into the sky: one is surmounted by a statue of the Immaculate Virgin at whose feet a large inscription reads: Help of Christians; the other, far loftier and sturdier, supports a [Communion] Host of proportionate size and bears beneath it the inscription Salvation of believers.
"The flagship commander - the Roman Pontiff [the Pope]- seeing the enemy's fury and his auxiliary ships very grave predicament, summons his captains to a conference. However, as they discuss their strategy, a furious storm breaks out and they must return to their ships. When the storm abates, the Pope again summons his captains as the flagship keeps on its course. But the storm rages again. Standing at the helm, the Pope strains every muscle to steer his ship between the two columns from whose summits hang many anchors and strong hooks linked to chains.
"The entire enemy fleet closes in to intercept and sink the flagship at all costs. They bombard it with everything they have: books and pamphlets, incendiary bombs, firearms, cannons. The battle rages ever more furious. Beaked prows ram the flagship again and again, but to no avail, as, unscathed and undaunted, it keeps on its course. At times a formidable ram splinters a gaping hole into its hull, but, immediately, a breeze from the two columns instantly seals the gash.
"Meanwhile, enemy cannons blow up, firearms and beaks fall to pieces, ships crack up and sink to the bottom. In blind fury the enemy takes to hand-to-hand combat, cursing and blaspheming. Suddenly the Pope falls, seriously wounded. He is instantly helped up but, struck down a second time, dies. A shout of victory rises from the enemy and wild rejoicing sweeps their ships. But no sooner is the Pope dead than another takes his place. The captains of the auxiliary ships elected him so quickly that the news of the Pope's death coincides with that of his successor's election. The enemy's self-assurance wanes.
"Breaking through all resistance, the new Pope steers his ship safely between the two columns and moors it to the two columns; first to the one surmounted by the Host, and then to the other, topped by the statue of the Virgin. At this point something unexpected happens. The enemy ships panic and disperse, colliding with and scuttling each other. Some auxiliary ships which had gallantly fought alongside their flagship are the first to tie up at the two columns.
"Many others, which had fearfully kept far away from the fight, stand still, cautiously waiting until the wrecked enemy ships vanish under the waves. Then, they too head for the two columns, tie up at the swinging hooks, and ride safe and tranquil beside their flagship. A great calm now covers the sea."

Sebenarnya apa hubungan antara mimpi Don Bosco dengan Paus Yohanes Paulus II? Kedua pilar yang muncul dalam mimpi Don Bosco tersebut menunjukkan Bunda Maria dan Ekaristi (dilambangkan dengan hosti) dengan Paus mengarahkan kapal yang agung dengan aman diantara kedua pilar tersebut. Don Bosco menceritakan mimpi ini pada tanggal 30 Mei 1862 dan dalam ceritanya dia dengan jelas tidak hanya mendeskripsikan air yang bergolak tetapi juga penyiksaan : kapal-kapal musuh menyerang kapal tersebut sementara Paus berusaha untuk membawa kapal ke tengah-tengah kedua pilar.

Paus Yohanes Paulus II adalah seorang Paus yang selalu mengutamakan Devosi kepada Bunda Maria dan Ekaristi dan dia yang juga menambahkan peristiwa baru dalam rosario.

Ada kemungkinan bahwa mimpi ini berhubungan dengan lebih dari satu Paus, meskipun sepertinya mimpi ini berhubungan dengan Paus Yohanes Paulus II. Dalam mimpi tersebut dikatakan bahwa Paus akan terluka dan dengan cepat dia dapat diselamatkan. Hal ini tentunya mengingatkan kita akan peristiwa penembakan yang terjadi pada Paus Yohanes Paulus II pada tanggal 13 Mei 1981. Kita tentunya ingat bagaimana daya tarik dari peristiwa tersebut dan bagaimana setiap orang tergerak untuk menolong dan memberinya semangat.

Tetapi kemudian dalam mimpinya juga dikatakan bahwa untuk kedua kalinya Paus akan jatuh lagi dan meninggal. Hal ini berarti akan ada Paus baru yang dengan sukses akan mengalahkan musuh-musuh dan berhasil berlabuh di antara kedua pilar. Paus pertama dalam mimpi tersebut tidaklah mungkin pendahulu dari Paus Yohanes Paulus II, Paus Yohanes Paulus I. Paus Yohanes Paulus I hanya memimpin gereja selama 33 hari, sehingga tidak mungkin baginya untuk meletakkan dasar untuk kedua devosi tersebut.

Jika kita membandingkan mimpi ini dengan Tiga Rahasia Fatima. Pesan yang diberikan melalui Sr. Lucia dos Santos pada tahun 1917, menampilkan gambaran seorang Paus sebagai Uskup Roma yang mendaki sebuah gunung menuju sebuah salib dan berhasil mencapai puncaknya, berlutut di bawah Salib yang besar, dia dibunuh oleh sekelompok tentara yang menembakkan peluru dan panah kepadanya.

Karena Yohanes Paulus II ditembak pada tanggal 13 Mei - Perayaan Maria Fatima - banyak spekulasi bahwa dialah Paus yang dilukiskan dalam rahasia tersebut. (dari berbagai sumber)
