I dream of a priest and his savings

i had a dream last night that I took a double-decker bus to "the catholic saving zone" which was a shopping center where priests gave you gift certificates based on what they thought you need. A priest was driving the bus and talked to each person individually on the way there. He called me up to talk to him, because the driver's seat was on the second level. He asked me what I wanted, and I tried to look him in the eye and say, "Father, I'm not Catholic and I've never gone to confession," but he cut me off and pointed at the road and said, "Eyes on where we're going!" He looked like a character actor who's name I can't place, but anyway he was mid 40's, brown hair with grey, short, broad-shouldered. Our talk turned into a big theological lesson and driving leasson.

Then I was walking around the shopping center again, and I saw the priest, and he was walking around with a hot breadstick like it was a cigar. The breadstick steamed because it was cold out, and the bread was still hot from the oven. He seemed really happy and i said to him, "Father, I can't help but question..." and he cut me off and said, "Look again and you'll see - nowhere in the bible does it say God wants you to question him."
And i said, "What does he want?" and he said, "He wants you to LISTEN, and to OBEY." I absolutely collapsed, and leaned against a planter and said, "How can God ask that of us?" and then I woke up.
