I recently had a dream about St. Peter, and not really what you’d expect. It was cute, almost comical, but with a deep message.
The only person I could see in the dream was St. Peter. He appeared as a youngish man with dark hair and a dark beard. I saw him in heaven, looking intently down at us. While watching us, he paced around, bursting with excitement. And what was it about us that captivated him—world events, catastrophes, earthly dramas? Not at all! It was our acts and rounds done in the Divine Will! I understood that what he was so eagerly anticipating was the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
His excited pacing reminded me of a minor league hockey coach during Game 7, in sudden-death overtime. His heart is on the ice with the kids. He is hyper-alert to every shush of the blade, every movement, breath, and heartbeat. It is the final hour and everything is on the line for the team, that is, Team Luisa. The coach has every confidence that this little team will be victorious. Indeed, they cannot lose, and he cannot wait!
Now St. Peter was the only person I could see in the dream, but he wasn’t the only person in the dream. Jesus was there too; I could feel his Presence. He was monitoring the saint with a good measure of repressed amusement, like an indulgent parent. Referring to the promised Divine Will Era, Jesus said to me: “St. Peter will be the first to cheer when it happens.”
That was the end of the dream. It may have been short, but it left me a great deal to ponder.
First, I had never considered that St. Peter would be so eagerly awaiting the New Era, but it makes perfect sense. He was after all the first pope, a simple fisherman to whom Jesus entrusted the unimaginable responsibility of building, loving, and caring for His Bride, the Church. Tragically, in these end times, the Bride is bleeding badly and dressed in tatters. But now that St. Peter sees Team Luisa trained and in act, he can’t take his eyes off us. Of course he is keenly interested in our acts and rounds, because Jesus has deemed them necessary in bringing about the fulfillment of the Our Father Prayer! Of course St. Peter will be the first to cheer when it happens! It is what he and Jesus have been longing for. At long last the vindication and purification of the Bride is at hand!
Another train of thought emerged after that little dream. I was kind of surprised that St. Peter’s unrepeatable personality was very much in evidence, even in heaven, even in a dream about heaven. It seemed to me that Jesus took great delight in that personality, now perfected in the Divine Will.
We take a lot of things for granted down here, and I had never really meditated on our personalities as an eternally ordained gift from God, nor pondered the delight he takes in that gift of our uniqueness, or that our personality would follow us into heaven. Here on earth, our fallen personalities are often the cause of pain and suffering for God, ourselves, and those around us. But in heaven, perfectly united with the Divine Will, we become our truest, most magnificent, unrepeatable selves, to our eternal joy and God’s glory!
Let us pray
Uncreated Power you have made each one of us unique and unrepeatable. In the Divine Will, I love you and thank you that we are so fearfully and wonderfully made. In particular I want to thank you for the gift of all the unique personalities in all the souls that have ever existed, including my own. I want to repair with your own Divine Will for all the ways our fallen personalities, distorted by sin, have caused pain and sorrow to you, our brothers and sisters, and all creation. I am so sorry, beloved Father, and offer you the reparations of Jesus, Mary, and Luisa, for your Glory and for the coming of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
I also intend to redo in the Divine Will all the acts Simon Peter did while he was on earth including his glorious martyrdom, as well as all acts of all souls of all time. O Lord, please multiply and magnify this prayer for your glory, for the good of all and for the coming of your kingdom. Fiat!
St. Peter pray for us, the little children of Team Luisa. In the Divine Will, coach us to our guaranteed victory, for the glory of God and the good of all souls! Amen. Fiat!
