Lake Ontario..Niagara on the Lake, Canada... 'summer of 2011'

While watching Father Phillip Scott on Women of Grace... he explained that when he was kidnapped and held at gunpoint in Peru... he saw a light and he felt at peace.  Infact so at peace... that he wanted to die.  He didn't end up dying though.   In his talks around the country... he tells about his ordeal and the wonderful spiritual insights that he gained during his capture.                                   

'The distance between our life and heaven is only a thread.  Our life and heaven mesh during the mass in receiving the Holy Eucharist.'
~Father Phillip Scott

Hi Amy, I clicked on your name at the Community of Catholic Bloggers to find your site. The picture at the top of the post is lovely. Thanks for sharing about Father Scott's experience. I think that when people are in mortal danger God often gives extraordinary grace. It's the only way I can figure that the early Christians could endure entering the coliseum with the lions. I wish somebody had told me as a kid that God did this because I was freaked out at age 4-5 hearing about the various martyrs.
