I have concluded that on the whole, NDE's are dangerous and are detrimental to the Catholic faith. NDEs are the "signs and wonders" that Jesus Himself warned would occur in the last days...
"For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand." 24 Matthew 24-25.
These are indeed the days Jesus has spoken of and if anyone seeks proof they need only delve into this disturbing world of NDEs--not that I am advocating this in the least.
Recently I decided to re-read the prophecy of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Melanie at La Sallette. I was astonished to read the following paragraph which appears to warn us of the "sign and wonders" of these last days...
"Some will make the dead rise and appear as holy persons. The souls of the dammed shall also be summoned, and shall appear as united to their bodies. Such persons, resurrected through the agency of demons, shall assume the figure of holy persons, who are known to have been upon earth, in order more easily to deceive them. These self-styled resuscitated persons shall be nothing but demons under their forms. In this way they shall preach a Gospel contrary to that of Jesus Christ, denying the existence of Heaven. In every place there shall be seen extraordinary prodigies, because the True Faith has been extinguished, and a pale light shines in the world." Our Lady of LaSallette.
Let's will to do all we can to remain "elect" --by praying our rosary and attending mass daily, consecrating ourselves to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and by reciting the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The deceits of Satan are all around us and only she has been ordained by heaven to crush the serpent. Tweet
The Testimony of Gloria Polo
May 5, 2005 - Caracas, Venezuela
Good morning, brothers. It is wonderful for me to be here, to share with you this gift so beautiful that the Lord gave me.
That which I am about to recount to you happened May 5, 1995 at the National University of Bogotá, starting from 4:30 pm.
I am a dentist. I and my 23-year-old cousin, who is also a dentist, were studying in order to get the specialization. On that day, which was a Friday, about 4:30 pm, we were walking together with my husband toward the Faculty of Dentistry to find some books that we needed. With my cousin I walked under a small umbrella while my husband wore a rain coat and to shelter himself better he was walking near the wall of the General Library. We two were jumping from one side to the other in order to avoid the puddles while staying close to the trees. When we jumped over a rather large puddle we were hit by a lightning bolt which left us both carbonized.
My cousin died immediately. The lightning bolt entered from behind, burning him inside totally, and came out through his feet, leaving him intact externally. Not withstanding his young age, he was a very religious young man. He had a great devotion for Baby Jesus and he always carried around his neck His image, a quartz medal. The authorities said that it was the quartz that attracted the lightning bolt to my cousin, because it entered into the heart burning everything…
Remaining intact externally, he immediately had a cardiac arrest which did not respond to the attempts of reanimation by the doctors, and he died on the spot.
As for me, the lightning bolt entered from my shoulder, burning terribly the whole body, inside and out; in short my flesh disappeared including my breasts, especially the left one, leaving a hole. It caused to disappear the flesh of my abdomen, of my legs, of the ribs; it carbonized the liver, it gravely burned the kidneys, the lungs, the ovaries… and came out through the right foot.
For my contraceptive, I was using a spiral (an intrauterine devise in the form of a T), and because of the material with which it is made (copper) it is a good conductor of electricity; the lightning bolt carbonized and
