Has anyone dreamed in Latin?

I’ve had 3 dreams in Latin and have found the words in the dreams on an internet Latin dictionary. It’s very unsettling at times. I go to my church every night before going home from work to pray the rosary in solitude. Our parish is going through a lot of turmoil and changes and I began praying to God that Pope John Paul II perform a miracle here to get people’s attention. The first dream was of an envelope with the words Duis Beatus Fas Oris which I found out means Rare, very fast, saint, divine law, communicator or communication. In the second dream I saw the statue of the Virgin Mary that is in my church except she was life size and on a pedestal and a voice was saying “Mea Gracia” meaning “for my sake” the voice in the dream was very pained and sad. The third was a wooden grave marker in a field of dried up brown grass with the word restituo buned on it which I later found out means put back. The last dream I had on July 3. I didn’t look up the meaning until the evening of July 4 when I got home from the church. When I went to the church to pray the rosary on the 4th the statue of Mary had been removed. I put her back and when I got home looked up the meaning of the word restituo. I thought that it would mean death and was very surprised when it meant to put back. Has this ever happened to other people? How is it possible for a person who doesn’t know Latin to dream in the language and find out that they are in fact real words?

never happened to me. But have you ever seen any latin text at all, it is amazing what the brain can recall.

the only Latin I’ve seen was when I sang in choir but not these words. Ave Marie was about it for me.

Not me, but I do have the words to the Elvis Presley song “Love Me Tender” in Latin, and it goes very well with the music.

That would not be a dream; it would be a nightmare!

Why do you think it would be a nightmare?

Well, I can tell you it can feel like a nightmare and it makes life a bit unsettling. I can assure you that if it was happening to you, you would not be able to take it so lightly. Thanks for your replies. It’s been real.

I found your experience interesting, particularly since I am currently reading a book about Christian miracles and one of the true stories in it was similar to yours. In this story, a Christian woman was being operated on by a Jewish doctor. When she woke up, the doctor asked her where she learned how to speak Hebrew. This woman had never spoken Hebrew in her life, but while she was “under” she gave the doctor a message in perfect Hebrew, and the message evidently was from God. God told the doctor that His hands were responsible for healing his (the doctor’s) patients, and that God, not the doctor, should be praised for his successes, etc.

It was pretty interesting.

I sometimes awaken from a nightmare praying
"sed libera nos a malo" (but deliver us from evil)

I awoke one morning with “Dona Nobis Pacem” playing in my head. Yes I had heard it, but hadn’t really paid attention to it. It was kind of unsettling until I just let the words seep into my conscienceness.

I still sing it and Ubi Caritas to remind me to behave better.
