What does it all mean…

… I’ve had some crazy vivid dreams before but this one takes the cake. Let me see if I can accurately articulate the oddness of it all…

So there I was, sitting in some burger joint. I want to say it was a Five Guys. I was having dinner with a group of friends when suddenly in walks Pope Francis. Very discreetly he sits down at a table by himself and starts to eat a hamburger. All my friends started whispering excitedly and finally dare me to go over and talk to him. Pope Francis invited me to sit down and we enjoyed our meal together. I remember him being jovial and very casual. I told him I was going to Rome for the canonization and he suddenly beamed like a child, took my face in his hands and said I must look him up when I am in Rome. Then he leaned in real close and whispered something in my ear. He was careful to point out the words were highly important and stressed I should never forget them.

I remember being very puzzled by his words and started to ask for clarification when suddenly the media burst through the doors and the place erupted into a frenzy of reporters and photographers. Pope Francis was whisked away by his security and I caught one final glimpse of him as he turned around to wave goodbye.

Then I woke up. I still don’t know what the heck was so doggone important.

    I love that you remember that it was Five Guys, but can’t remember what the Holy Father said to you. The worst!

    Over a decade ago, I had a really scary dream. I was at my maternal grandmother’s, doing smalltalk as we usually did as she poured in love. She was sitting on the sofa and I, on an armchair by the door. We were interrupted when someone knocked on the door and I stood up to answer it. I open the door and there were Hillary and Bill Clinton, the Lizard Queen and Bubba. As Hillary spots my grandmother, she opens her arms and my grandmother stood up to greet her with a wide smile, saying, as she hugged her: “Hillary, my dearest!” I woke up in a cold sweat. Mind you, my grandmother spoke no English and couldn’t care less who the American first lady was. What does it all mean?

    This is easy. The Pope has already told you what you need to know – it is important (to continue) to listen to him.

    You will see him in Rome.

    Very Interesting! From the way you’re describing this dream, it sounds like it probably is meant to show you something, or teach you something eventually. But sometimes we don’t understand the reasons for dreams until a certain
    amount of time has passed. I’ve had a few incredibly vivid dreams that
    shook me, and stuck with me until I realized what they were pointing to
    (after anywhere from a few days to a couple months had passed). In two
    cases, they were deaths – one a murder that changed our lives forever.
    When I’ve described these occasions of profound dreaming to friends and
    family, all the details included, the main reaction is always chills.

    I think most often dreams are meant to tip us off so that we are more
    prepared when the inevitable happens. Other times they reveal messages.
    Never stop pondering this one, Kat.

      Or maybe I was just hungry and jonesing for Five Guys.

    Since Five Guys was involved, I can only assume that the Holy Father’s message had something to do with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcJFdCmN98s

    Also, if it’s any consolation, the host of our show once had a dream about making pancakes for Pope John Paul II.

    St. Bosco used to have recurrent dreams until they were understood or communicated to his boys. Likely you will know the meaning of this in time

    You asked for clarification of the Holy Father’s words, and in bursts a media frenzy.

    Yup. That adds up.

      I thought about that.

    I don’t know why but this struck me as very funny. Maybe he’s going to make you a saint. :)

    Whatever he said, it was not in Latin.

    Are you going to look him up when you go to Rome? What?
