Blazon tells Dunstan that what matters most, spiritually speaking, is an individual decision for everyone. He shows Dunstan that he needs to discover what Mary Dempster means to him in his life. He also advices him to put aside his guilt about the snowball incident, as saving him from the snowball hit could have been one of her miracles as well. Maybe Mary Dempster was meant to save him from the snowball as she saved him on the battlefield. He tells Dunstan to quit feeling guilty and to get on with figuring out what it all means; otherwise, Blazon states, Dunstan will wind up in the madhouse with his saint.
With the help of Padre Blazon, Dunstan ultimately decides that it does not matter if others share the meaning he has found in Mary Dempster, and thus Dunstan has found the value of personal meaning. He realizes that life has a different meaning for everyone. For him, life is about the search for meaning, which he comes to believe is more important than meaning itself.
