What could these 'dreams' imply for a
Catholic living the Sacraments
(Reconciliation and daily Mass),
struggling against frequent occasions
of venial sin (failing most of the
time)? Calling aloud the name of Jesus
during sleep without being aware of
doing so. For more than a year this is
recurring, fortnightly or monthly.
Calls such as (any combination of these
at a time), "my Jesus, O my Jesus," "my
Lord and my God," "O my Jesus have
mercy on me," "O my Jesus help me," "O
my Jesus hear me," "O my Jesus, always
in my heart." The calls sometimes sound
like in fright and sometimes like
adoring or praying.
Should I be worried?
These prayers uttered in sleep may accord with what St Paul enjoins in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, to "pray constantly." A heart constantly in communion with the Sacred Heart of Jesus may express itself in this way, even in sleep. But in case these prayers are an expression of some anxiety, you should note the verse which precedes, "Rejoice always" (1 Thess 5:16). To rejoice in Our Savior is to acknowledge His faithfulness, that He will never let his "little ones" go. I would spend time in waking prayer, telling the Lord that you trust Him and would never willingly part from Him. I'm sure He will give you reassurance.
