Priest

 

(in Russian, sviashchennik; official church designation, ierei; popular name, pop), a clergyman of the Orthodox Church having the right to perform church ceremonies, including the liturgy, and to administer the sacraments. The right to ordain priests and to assign them to a post in a parish is given to an eparchial bishop (arkhierei). A senior priest is an archpriest (protoierei), and a monastic priest is a hieromonk (ieromonakh). The clergymen of other churches, including some Protestant churches, are also sometimes referred to as priests in literature.

What does it mean when you dream about a priest? (minister or Rabbi)

A spiritual authority figure may symbolize the dreamer’s spiritual needs. In interpreting such a dream, one should note whether the figure was loving and caring, or dictatorial and condemning, as the character of an overbearing parent may be associated with a negative religious figure.

Priest

(dreams)
The priest in your dream could represent spiritual needs, your conscience, a desire to be virtuous, inner guidance, or your higher self. This dream could be comforting if it reassures you that there is safety and strength in spiritual forces. Please remember that dream interpretation is very, very personal. Some people may have had negative experiences with clergy, and in that case the dream may have an entirely different tone. The spiritual forces represented in this dream could be intrinsic, revealing your own spiritual qualities, strengths, and abilities, or they could represent the spiritual forces around you.
