A Few Words from Father Steve
I fell asleep after a very few minutes and slept quite
well. That would have been enough to qualify for a miracle to my mind
yet something else happened that night. About two-thirty in the morning
– I had just glanced at the clock briefly – I had a very unusual
dream. I dreamt that I was showing people my plaster splint and as I was
showing it to them, it began shrinking and dissolving. This upset me in
my dream. I remember crying out: “Wait! What’s happening?
I need that!” Yet the cast kept dissolving until it disappeared.
Still in my dream, I decided to see if I could stand on my right leg,
so I did and felt no discomfort
Of course I woke up the next day and found that the obnoxious splint was still on my leg which brought me back to earth. But not completely. There was a conviction about that dream. It wasn’t just “wishful thinking.” It felt like it came from outside of me and that it had the force almost of a command.
Now this is the first time I have ever had a dream like that. I know many people get messages from God in their dreams, sometimes regularly, but that is not the usual way that God communicates with me. I’ve always been alert and awake when I’ve received a “message” from God, sometimes deep in prayer and sometimes not. It usually comes in the sense of the deep inward “still small voice” and more rarely in more audible form but I have never had a dream with this kind of message.
So the dream startled me and I wasn’t exactly sure of its meaning beyond that the splint would come off and I would be healed – which I already expected would happen in due time. I was still “pondering this in my heart” as I went to bed the next night and I had a similar less elaborate dream. This time the splint did not dissolve but the whole night long, I dreamt of having nothing at all on my foot and it felt perfectly fine. Again, I walked around all night on my healed foot and again I woke up to find the splint still on my leg, which still could not bear any weight.
So did that dream – those dreams – really come from God? Let me tell you what transpired and you can decide for yourself.
The only real pain I had been feeling since I was injured would occur when I transferred my leg from the elevated position to below my knee and I still could put no weight on it.
The following Monday, exactly one week after the accident, I went to my orthopedist for my follow-up appointment, expecting an x-ray and a new hard cast, as had been predicted in the emergency room. To my relief, my doctor immediately threw out the awful plaster splint contraption. He examined me closely but informed me I would need surgery. The next day, I was at South Shore Hospital having an external fixture being put on my leg holding the ankle in place. It would be like this until surgery this past Tuesday.
I don’t know if God was in my dreams but what I do know is that
God’s presence has been in my life the whole time. May we always
realize and see God’s presence in our lives, most especially in
