Angel at Concert

Location: N/A

By: John Green

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.
