The inscription reads: “St. John Bosco, celebrating the Eucharist on this altar, was seen to halt and to cry a lot of times, contemplated with a miraculous look the whole vast panorama of his life.  Contained in the words told him by the Madonna in the dream when he was nine years old: 'In its time all will understand!'”
