Now before you think I’m a nut (I know…too late!), I’m not insinuating that this dream was some sort of a message from Padre Pio or God. It could have come from any number of random thoughts in my head. What I can say is that the dream reminded me to ask for Padre Pio’s intercession for the healing of Christian Campuzano (see blog entries from a few days ago) and also to post his quote of “Pray, Hope and Don’t Worry” on Twitter. Two people picked up on this quote and decided to “re-tweet” it. Therefore, because of this “crazy” dream, Padre Pio had the opportunity to work in some people’s lives.
Dreaming About Padre Pio’s “House”
I had a very interesting dream last night. I dreamt that I was visiting Padre Pio’s house, which (in my dream) was a townhouse somewhere in New Jersey. There was an older woman giving me a tour and showed me a room where Padre used to hear confession. I started getting excited about the prospect of meeting the great saint, but then I remembered that he was no longer alive. After the tour, the woman proceeded to give me several sets of rosary beads blessed by Padre Pio. As I held them in my hands, my eyes filled up with tears as I realized that they were blessed by a saint. I woke up shortly thereafter, but had a “good” feeling.
Even though this dream had some silly details, I can’t rule out that it was a message from God. Whatever the explanation, some good came out of it and I’m glad that I didn’t just ignore it. So the next time you have a dream, get an idea, hear something, etc. you might want to consider how it may pertain to your life…Acting on the idea just might bring about some good!
