In describing a dream in which he had a vision of various young men who had been taken over by the sin of lust, St. John Bosco (1815-1888) said: “I saw another throng of boys, but not the countless number as at the beginning of the dream. Formerly very handsome, they now appeared ugly, sullen, and covered with hideous sores, and they walked about with great melancholy as if stooped or wasted by age. No one spoke.”
