This is good to hear of, I had not heard of this before. It reminds me of St. Dominic's mother's dream, which you might have heard of.

My 1955 Catholic Book Publishing edition tells that St Andrew's mother dreamed shortly before his birth that she gave birth to a wolf, which became a lamb upon entering a Carmelite Church.  What a wonderful foreshadowing of the future.  He gained a great reputation as a peacemaker.  St Andrew pray for us.

'If a man reads this or any other work not to gain spiritual benefit but to track down matter with which to abuse the author, so that in his conceit he can show himself to be the more learned, nothing profitable will ever be revealed to him in anything.'

'A Christian during the whole course of his life should, like unto Jesus, be on the cross. It would be an act of rashness to descend therefrom, since Jesus Christ did not descend, even when the Jews offered to believe in Him. The time for driving out the nails of His cross was only after death, there is then no time to extract the nails whilst we live, -- we must wait until our sacrifice is consummated: Non est tempus evellendi clavos."

'One man speaks the truth and is hated for it by the foolish; another speaks hypocritically and for this reason is loved. But in both cases their reward is not long delayed, for at the appropriate moment the Lord renders to each his due.'

'Never keep up any coldness towards your neighbor, or else the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ will keep aloof from you. When your resentfully call to mind former slights that you have received, you oblige our Lord to recall your past sins which His mercy had made Him forget.'
