(I was blown away by this piece written by Fr. Richard Heilman at his site, Roman Catholic Man. Rather than just link to it, I sent him a note asking permission to reprint it in its entirety…and yes, I disclosed to him that I am THAT Charlie Johnston. To my delight, he quickly and graciously granted permission. I have been a fan of Fr. Heilman for several years now. He is profoundly faithful and bold – and is one of the most insightful commenters on the faith I have seen. If you don’t follow him at his site, you really should. He is a profound sign of hope to me.-CJ)
January 31 Super Blue Blood Moon and St. John Bosco’s Dream/Prophecy
Well known is St. John Bosco’s “dream of the two columns” where he foresaw the future difficulties of the Church, envisioned as a ship on stormy seas. Several popes strive to moor the Church and anchor it between two columns which arose amid the dangerous waters. The columns symbolized the two devotions to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary Immaculate, the Help of Christians. Calm and peace for the Church is won only when one of the popes finally succeeds in anchoring the Church between the two columns.
Another St. John Bosco dream/prophecy is less-known, which can shed light on interpreting the dream of the two columns.
The dream/prophecy ends as follows:
“There shall yet come a violent hurricane. Iniquity is at an end, sin shall cease, and before two full moons shall have shone in the month of flowers, the rainbow of peace shall appear on earth … Throughout the world a sun so bright shall shine as never seen since the flames of the Cenacle until today, nor shall it be seen again until the end of time.”
Here’s an interesting insight that will blow you away …
This year, there is a rare occurrence of two full moons in the same month … two of these in the same year. When this happens, in any month, the second full moon, in that month, is referred to as a “blue moon.”
Get this …
On January 31, 2018, a super rare event will occur. This will be a “Super, Blue, Blood Moon.” “Super” because the moon is near to the earth. “Blue” because it is the second in a month. “Blood” because it will also be a lunar eclipse.
Okay, that’s pretty cool. But here’s the kicker. January 31 is the Feast of St. John Bosco. Is God highlighting St. John Bosco?
Wait, it gets better.
Remember that I said there are two Blue Moon events in one year? Want to know when the second one is?
The second Blue Moon will occur in March, which contains the first day of Spring … you know, Spring … when flowers begin to bloom … “and before two full moons shall have shone in the month of flowers.” -St. John Bosco.
The Blue Moon in March occurs on March 31. What’s significant of that date? It coincides with Holy Saturday, which commemorates Our Lord’s descent into Hades and the Harrowing of Hell.
Wait, there’s still more!
Only now have I made all of these connections, concluding with this … March 31 is DAY 90 OF NINEVEH 90 FOR LIFE!! THE DAY WE ALL MAKE OUR MARIAN CONSECRATION!! WOW!!!
Believe it or not, there is one last thing. St. John Bosco’s dream about the two moons in the month of flowers came to him on the Vigil of the Epiphany. Well …. that was the same time I made all of these connections … the same time I had an EPIPHANY!

“Pay Attention to St. John Bosco” -God
I believe the Super Blue Blood Moon on the Feast of St. John Bosco is God trying to get our attention that there is something God wants us to notice, related to St. John Bosco.
Historic Light Being Shone
After 100 years of Satan’s unbinding, as prophesied by Pope Leo XIII, we are now seeing an “historic light” being shown on evil, that had been, up until now, allowed to move unabated, and is now being radically called into question.
Even Pope Benedict held that this 100 years, most likely, began with Our Lady of Fatima’s warning in 1917 and would conclude in 2017, as he said this in 2010 …
“May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the apparitions hasten the fulfillment of the prophecy of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to the glory of the Most Holy Trinity“. (Homily of His Holiness Benedict XVI, Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima Thursday, 13 May 2010)
It is more than interesting that the volcano of exposés (historic light) erupted with Harvey Weinstein on October 5, 2017. This was just two days before the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (and the conclusion of the 54 day Novena for Our Nation), and just nine days (a novena of days) before the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in Fatima. Also note, these exposés erupted only 13 days after the September 23, 2017 Revelation 12 sign.
Now, Hollywood – Yes! Hollywood! – is standing against the sexualization and objectification of women! WOW!
Add to this the exposés (historic light) on corruption and collusion occurring within the ruling class; the cultural elites of politics and media. This “swamp” is being drained at an alarming rate. Please watch this speech: HERE. Judge Louis D. Brandeis is often quoted in situations such as this: “Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.”
I believe this “historic light” is what St. John Bosco’s dream is pointing to when he wrote, “…a sun so bright shall shine as never seen since the flames of the Cenacle until today.”
Consider how far we have fallen into paganism in our times. Consider the worst genocide – abortion – in all of human history. Consider marriage redefined for the first time in all of civilization. Consider the “normalization” of corruption and collusion for gaining political power. All of these, and more, are being exposed as the horror that they are, just in the past few months, since the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
Recall that I eluded to the September 23, 2017 Revelation 12 sign. In the book of Revelations, it is interesting to note that this “sign” marked Satan being “thrown down.” This occurs precisely as the 100 years of Satan’s unbinding comes to an end. This sign is followed by the passage that says,
“Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.” -Revelations 12:7-9
“The dragon and his angels fought back.” Look at the fierce battle being waged all around us, as the forces of death and darkness are panicked as they see their entrenched evil threatened. As Revelations 12:12 says, “…for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” Secular Satanism, as Matt Walsh refers to it, is calling upon every worldly minion and every source of influence, in one of the most aggressive campaigns to retain all of the ground they have gained, up to now. But, their evil empire is crumbling before their eyes, and they know it.
What Is Our Role?
As this historic, epic battle is being waged all around us, we are called upon to be Mary’s Mighty Warriors! This is a battle to regain the surrendered ground of the supernatural, so we must engage as “supernaturalized warriors” wielding “supernatural weapons.”
We are “supernaturalized” when we are completely loyal to Divine Revelation – Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. We simply cannot break from this, even in the smallest way. God needs “loyal and trusted” soldiers. As Jesus said,
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets. I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law, until all things have taken place. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven” Matthew 5: 17-19.
We are supernaturalized when we seek the amazing gift of purity found in the Sacrament of Confession. This includes making a “real” effort to put an end to any repetitive sin that has laid hold of us. Men, especially, have disqualified themselves with the sin of pornography and masturbation … no supernatural grace. The time is now, to unchain themselves from this demonic power over them.
The supernatural weapons begin with frequent Communion and Adoration. Recall the two pillars in St. John Bosco’s dream. That means the other supernatural weapon for this battle is the ROSARY. The Church, which is comprised of it’s members, must moor themselves to the Eucharist and the Rosary, in this historic, epic battle.
