The Secret of Dreams
Roman Catholic Books
Fr. Meseguer begins by surveying the dream theories of the Greeks, the Romans, the Jews, St. Augustine and the Scholastics. He then discusses dreams as vehicles of divine communication, both in Scripture and in the lives of saints and mystics.
Catholic reviewers praised this volume highly in 1960:
“It is refreshing to have someone bring back into focus the role of dreams in the Catholic tradition and Catholic theology....The section devoted to dreams and spiritual direction is particularly helpful and clarifying....This serious and deliberate study of a delicate human phenomenon shows tact, wisdom and reverence, and makes for instructive as well as delightful reading. The keynote of the study is balance and reasonableness…This is a well-written, thoroughly documented study of dreams and their place in the life of the spirit.”—The Critic
“Broad and authoritative...tightly packed with data and with wellreasoned explanations of the material at hand....Fr. Meseguer has no hesitation about discussing difficult subjects. Telepathy, angelism, demonism, prophetic dreams, dreams and chastity, apparitions of the dead in dreams—all of these are touched upon intelligently and with clear insight.”—America
