“Miracle Candle During a Catholic Mass”
The following is a true story. (For the “sign seekers.”)
About four years ago, in 2007, one day I decided to head to a local Catholic Mass. I sat there in the midst of the church full of people, praying and meditating to God.
I was situated about 25 feet away from the priest and his podium, where, according to Catholic tradition, there were two lit candles in front of him to the left and the right about two feet away.
As the service progressed, with the priest giving his sermon, I found myself concentrating on the candle to the right, just staring at it with intense focus, oblivious to what the priest was preaching.
For some reason the thought came into my focused mind (as in, "from Above") that at the countdown from five, I would simply “blow out the candle.”
Remember that I was more than 25 feet away and sitting low-key amongst the crowd.
As I stared at the candle, with focus in my mind I said internally,
“Five, four, three, two, one ...” Then I exhaled forcefully through my mouth, as though “blowing out the candle.”
As the countdown approached zero, the priest suddenly got excited, vigorously waving his arms and hands around with violent force as he began making his point during this sermon. His mind, thoughts and actions were being telepathically controlled in ways the average person would consider to be “supernatural” in order to "fulfill" the extinguishing of this candle at the countdown from 5 seconds.
The very instant I exhaled out loud, the priest’s arm waved up and down from his body, with the air from his hand extinguishing the candle to (my) right, which my eyes and mind were focused on.
Suddenly, the priest realized what had happened: A genuine “miracle” of God, through this angelic Daniel, sitting in the pews, 25 feet away. But he was not necessarily aware of who exactly had done this.
He stopped and just stared at the extinguished candle for a few seconds, dead silent and flabbergasted, while there was nervous laughter amongst the people around me who observed this spectacle.
Next the priest told everyone, trying to explain what happened, something to the effect of,
“It's the darkness trying to extinguish the light!”
He was trying to blame the “Devil” for this, when it actually was a “sign and wonder” from God, manifested through Daniel.
Now, why exactly did God want me to do this on this day during this Mass? In Catholicism the two candles represent dualism. God, on the other hand, is Oneness.
Was this a “sign” to show the priest and followers at the service that the Catholic Church is teaching falsely, or that there is too much darkness within this organized Church, organization and religion? Well, God only knows, as this author is not consciously aware of the reason God allowed the priest to extinguish the candle in this manner using only conscious power of thought from my mind.
The light of the Catholic Church is now being "extinguished" as we approach "the end."
However, I have been going out to church services more lately, including Catholic Masses, since it appeared the Lord has been renewing, strengthening and reawakening my energies once again, after years of “stumbling.”
There are major problems with Catholicism, such as darkness within, corruption, scandals amongst priests as well as aberrant paganism or idol worship instead of true faith and worship of the One True God.
Further evidence of this "evil" and darkness was when I recently entered a Catholic chat room on Paltalk on the Internet. Within minutes of showing up and listening, a very “evil” and negative vibration began permeating every cell of my body as I observed and listened to participants chatting. I could only withstand 10 minutes of this overpowering sensation and thereafter had to leave the room. It took half an hour of prayer to shake this un-peaceful, agitating, negative vibration from the body and spirit and restore peace and internal light.
In contrarian manner in sticking up for the “good” Catholics, I would like to assert that it is kind of unfair the way the media has portrayed the Church and priests. If one listens to the mainstream media propaganda, one would come to the conclusion that 40% or more of Catholic priests are “child molesters,” when, in actuality, priests molest at a lower rate than secular public school teachers. According to the Wikipedia page concerning the Catholic priest scandal, more than 4% of secular public school teachers have molested their students, yet, according to the non-biased, independent study on the Wikipedia web page, only 1.7% of Catholic priests have ever molested. This is a relatively small number. The problem, of course, is the issue of trust, since they are supposed to be representatives of God, but from my perspective the media has greatly overblown the issue, giving the impression that the problem is rampant everywhere when it actually is not. I try to deal in reality, not hearsay and biased opinion.
