I went to a Michael John Porrier concert in 2006. He is a inspirational Catholic guitar player. The entire church he was playing at was filled with candles. I was sitting there, I closed my eyes, and was listening to the music. All of a sudden, a essence was in the air, it was like a constant wave of protectiveness and power, it seemed to flow through me, filling me up. I opened my eyes, perplexed at the feeling. The light came out of the candles and met up in the center of the church, molding to form a golden figure, wearing an alb, standing, or rather floating, above Michael Porrier's head. The face was blurry, so I couldn't make it out. The candles changed, they now looked like balls of light, but with out the light. Imagine a fire, without the brightness, but just as warm, and inviting. The figure was in a relaxed position, and he/she didn't say anything. I watched it for a while, and rubbed my eyes, it was still there. I looked around, but no one looked like they could see it. I closed my eyes for about five min., when I opened them, it was gone. I asked my parents on my way home if they had seen anything, both of them didn't see anything, but were convinced that I was telling them the truth. What a great blessing.
Some may never see with earthly eyes these heavenly beings or know that they exist. Many are unaware of the numerous ways they have protected and guided us. We would like to share with you the stories of people who take pleasure in expressing how real angels are.
