A Christian woman I am acquainted with shared something with me that has caused me some confusion and worry.
She told me about a close friend of hers who was a fervent Catholic. However, this friend had some kind of vision that drove her away from the Church.
She was at Eucharistic Adoration one day. I don’t know if she was there alone or not. She was seated near a statue of Mary. This statue began to blink its eyes, which frightened this woman a lot. She moved to another seat in the church to get away from the statue.
Then she said as she looked towards the monstrance that it began to move. And then a moment or two later, she saw the devil behind it…maybe she saw him holding the monstrance and moving it around…I don’t know exactly.
The woman ran out of the church and never went to Mass again.
My friend who told me this story says it showed that the eucharist and Mass and all of this is of the devil.
I believe that the woman did actually see something…however the meaning could be much different than what she assumed. I asked my priest about it and he said this woman should have talked to a priest instead of just leaving the church.
I have been reading recently about how Padre Pio was so attacked by the devil. Could a Monstrance containing The Eucharist actually be attacked like this?
