Un-Holy Thursday

I shared an inappropriate dream and I was told that I was going to hell.
My dream was about humility and servitude.
That rather than Jesus Christ washed the feet of the poor and unwanted he pissed on them instead.

In my dream it was raining piss and some have said that this could mean that people are worried about money troubles. My Uncle who has died was in my dream but he was a devout Catholic who would kill himself and suffer a worse sin if he missed any of the masses during Holy Week.  

But was he the Christ figure who pissed everywhere and said "so what" when I protest about his behavior. Why are the poor and lonely and mentally suffering only honored during the Holy Week.

If piss could be a blessing like rain.
When it rains it rains most of the year not only for one week.
Maybe hell could use a little more rain water.
