Bear Witness


I had a dream…..

I was on a very hight point, overlooking a great beautiful green valley. I could see from my view, two men walking in the valley on a foot path. As they reached some brush, a brown bear stood before them snarling. The bear bit the first man on the hand and then the men then came to where I was sitting up on the high point. He, the first man, was very kind and gentle and I bandaged his hand. the second man was just as pleasant.

That was the dream…

In the early morning hours yesterday morning, I happened to catch Holy Mass on EWTN. During the priests homily, he mentioned two words that tripped this dream back up to the forefront of my memory. The two words? “Bear Witness”

Isaiah 53:5
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
