Antonio dreams that the Virgin speaks to his mother and promises her that his brothers will return from war safe and sound. His mother then asks the Virgin to make Antonio a priest, but he sees the Virgin wearing the black garments of mourning. This dream might signify Antonio's refusal of the priesthood, but it might also reflect his obsession with sin and its ultimate punishments.
