Last January 2nd, I had a short vivid dream. My youngest son and I went to the master’s bathroom. Just as we stepped inside the room, we felt the foundation of the house shake. I looked out the window and saw the flood water rising because of a huge storm. It was now almost up to the height of the second floor. I looked at my husband with fear for I do not see any door or windows where we can escape.

I woke up and asked my husband if I should take something out of this dream.

I prayed to the Holy Spirit for wisdom and revelation. Then, I fell asleep again. This time, I recall seeing a variety of roses in front of me. They were light-colored ones. They look very similar to the rose image on top of this page.

I opened my eyes and felt that it was significant, so I said to my husband, “Patrick, I saw a bunch of beautiful roses. Do you have an idea what it means?” Even before I dare to hear what he has to say, I fell back to sleep.

And, I saw a vision of one large red rose.


I woke up my husband again and told him, “Honey, this time I saw a vision of a large bright red rose. Do you know what those two visions of roses mean?” He again gave me an interpretation but then I realized that we are going to be late for First Friday Holy Mass. So, I pulled myself out of bed and started to dress up and head out the door.

After Holy Mass, my husband took me to a breakfast coffee date. Then, we saw the Facebook post of our friend, the Traveling Shepherd.  He posted that day was  the birthday of St. Therese Lisieux (January 2, 1872).

St. Therese is known to love roses. The Society of the Little Flower website stated that “ St. Therese explained, “After my death, I will let fall a shower of roses. I will spend my heaven doing good upon earth. I will raise up a mighty host of little saints. My mission is to make God loved…”

Shortly after her death, the rain of roses began. Sometimes roses literally appeared, and sometimes just the fragrance of them.”
