I always used to
ask God to show me how to live faith .....
It's already a few years since I had a very
significant dream, which is vividly imprinted in
my mind and in my heart forevermore. No doubt it
was an answer to my prayers and it made me feel
so deeply cared for and loved!
climb up a rather high mountain together with
many other people. We walk in silence on a narrow
path, in a row. I understand that we are
pilgrims, when I see a church far away high up on
the mountain, beautifully set on the
horizon. I am full of expectance. I love the
mountains and I enjoy the view and the peaceful
climbing. When we reach the church and when
everybody is inside, I immediately notice a
Priest who shuts all the doors in what seems to
me a definitive manner. He blocks the doors
nailing pieces of wood on them. Instantly I feel
claustrophobic and ask the Priest to please open
the doors again. I dont like to be closed
in, I feel uneasy, I want to go outside again,
but there is no reply from the Priest. I look
around and there I see a staircase. I run up the
stairs and indeed I find a little door which
opens to a balcony and I step out: What I see in
that moment is so immensely moving! I see a
beautiful green valley stretched before my eyes (it
does not seem the same valley we have come from).
At the end of this valley there is a golden city.
Everything is so extremely brilliant and
beautiful that my heart fills with a longing so
strong that I can hardly bear it. I'm overwhelmed
and stand there in utter awe for quite a while.
Then I do not resist anymore. I cry out, I want
to go there, I feel within my heart that the
Place is like Paradise. It's as if from the
shining town a voice called me, come, come,
here is beauty, here is love, here is peace
. ..... Then I hurry downstairs
shouting How can I reach the place
I've seen from the balcony? There is a golden
city! Please open the doors ...
Nobody answers and I feel deeply frustrated for
being closed in. Then I find myself standing
right in front of the Altar with a little golden
Tabernacle. The Tabernacle is beautifully
gazing at the Tabernacle I suddenly become silent
and I feel at peace. In that moment I hear a
beautiful voice saying "You know the way, I
am the way, there is no other way to reach the
place you've seen ..... come through the
Tabernacle, this is the only way".
Voice vibrated softly in my heart. My reaction to
the invitation was strange. I thought
the Tabernacle is too small to get through,
I'll never manage .........
dream ended and I woke up just in that moment
when I was doubting to make it through
remembered vividly everything and finally, my
heart strongly pounding, I understood.
had told me that HE WAS THE WAY! HE IS THE WAY to
perfect joy perfecta laetitia! And I
remembered the words He said to His disciples
during the Last Supper Do this in memory of
... The Holy Eucharisty!
. The Tabernacle!
had this wonderful dream I approach the Holy
Eucharisty in much deeper awareness that JESUS
TRULY IS THE WAY.
