Today we celebrated Corpus Christi with a Solemn Mass with Procession of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction. Father Mervyn presided and preached and Father Martin read the Gospel and led us in the Creed and the Intercessions. In his sermon Father Mervyn mention an experiment conducted by NASA the American Space Agency using a special type of camera which could see the energy levels in the human body and which was shown on a monitor. It’s purpose was to investigate the effects of space travel on astronauts in orbit. Experimenting in a hospital that discovered that in a dying person the aura i.e. the energy around the body decreases until the person dies. One one occasion they observed a man entering a room who appeared to have light coming from his pocket. When the man removed the object from his pocket the room was filled with light and they could no longer see either on their monitor or through the two-way mirror what was causing so much light. Rushing to the room they found the dying man was being given Holy Communion. After he had received, the aura round the man was stronger than before. As a result of this episode the scientist conducting the experiment became a priest despite being in his late fifties.
