Priest Died For 48 Minutes And Met God, Who Is A Woman

He died for 48 minutes, after which Father John Micheal O'neal, a Catholic priest from Massachussetts, was declared officially "dead" for more than 48 minutes, before doctors could bring back his heart to life. After he revived, he disclosed some "shocking" facts related to God, whom he says he met in heaven.

The 71-year-old cleric Father John Micheal O'neal claims that God is a "warm and comforting motherly figure", whom he ran into in heaven, according to

On January 29, a major heart attack claimed him. A high-tech machine called LUCAS 2 kept his blood continuously flowing to his brain. Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital succeeded in unblocking crucial arteries that could restore his heart back to a normal rhythm.

At that particular time in his life, he confirms that he met God, who he describes as a feminine, mother-like "Being of Light".

When he came out of his physical body, John remembers that he got an intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance, and was surrounded by an "overwhelming light". His description of God was as a "comforting motherly energy", along with a very "nurturing and loving presence". He said that God was "A Being of Light", according to

"Her presence was both overwhelming and comforting" states the Catholic priest. "She had a soft and soothing voice and her presence was as reassuring as a mother's embrace. The fact that God is a Holy Mother instead of a Holy Father doesn't disturb me, she is everything I hoped she would be and even more."

Whatever he said created quite a furore among the Catholic clergy of the archdiocese in the last week, which has led to the Archbishop calling for a press conference to stop all the rumours.

Even though the seniors in his group are irritated with him, Father O'neal declares that he will go on dedicating his life to God and tell everyone about the "Holy Mother". "I wish to continue preaching" he said. "I would like to share my new knowledge of the Mother, the Son and the Holy Ghost with all Catholics and even all Christians. God is great and almighty despite being a woman..."

However, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston does not confirm whether it will permit Father O'neal to carry on preaching in his former Parish. At many websites the story has been circulated, though it has not been verified. Terrence Donilon, a spokesman for the Archbishop of Boston, calls the reports a 'hoax'.
