A testimony

| 1 Comment

My friend Fr. Tom Carleton sent this:

There is an interesting story to which I would like to give testimony while it is fresh in my mind.

On Saturday I anointed a devout man named Anthony, who was dying and was not expected to live much longer.

Sister Cordata, a very holy nun and good friend of Anthony, was herself ill and was in fact today taken to the hospital with pneumonia (say a prayer for her, if you will). When her blood sister came for her this afternoon at about 2:15 p.m., Sister Cordata said, "Anthony has died." Those present of course assured her that although he was dying he had not yet died, and now she had to take care of her own health.

Well, as it turned out, at 12:15 p.m. this afternoon Anthony indeed had died, so it appears to me at least that God (maybe through a communication between Anthony's guardian angel and Sister's guardian angel) somehow revealed to Sister Cordata of his passing into eternity.

Really, this sort of thing happens all the time, doesn't it?

What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
