The Power of The Eucharist
NASA did someexperimenting with a special type of camera that could seethe energy levels in the human body. This is then seen on amonitor. This energy shows up as an aura around the body.NASA's interest in the experiment was to investigate theeffects of space travel on astronauts in orbit. Experimentingin a hospital they discovered that when a person is dying,the aura around the body is thinner, and gets thinner andthinner until the person dies. The scientist carrying out thisinvestigation in the hospital and his associate were behind atwo-way mirror. They could see with their camera another man coming into the room with light coming from his pocket.Then the man took the object from his pocket and didsomething so that in the camera, the whole room was filledwith light and with their camera they could no longer seewhat was happening. They ran to the room to see what wascausing so much light to appear in their camera. Theydiscovered that the dying man was being given HolyCommunion. Afterwards with their camera, they could seethat the aura around him was brighter. Although in hisfifties, the scientist conducting the experiment decided tobecome a priest.
