A Catholic priest from Massachusetts, America in a shocking revelation says God is a woman. 71 year old priest, Father John Micheal O’Neil was pronounced dead for 48 minutes before paramedics in what can only be described as a miracle restarted his heart.
Father John claims that he went to Heaven, met God and by his account, God is a ‘warm and comforting motherly figure’.
With the aid of a high-tech machine called LUCAS 2, blood kept flowing to his brain, doctors at the Massachusetts General Hospital unblocked his vital arteries and returned his heart to a normal rhythm.
The doctors initially, were afraid he had suffered a brain damage from the incident, but surprisingly he woke up less than 48 minutes later and was fit as a fiddle.
Father John claims he remembers very clearly what happened to him while he was dead. He describes a strange out-of-body experience, and says he experienced an intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance, as well as being surrounded by an overwhelming light.
He claims that at that point in his experience, he went to heaven and met God, Who he describes as feminine, mother-like and “Being of Light”. He said:
“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!”
The declarations of the cleric has caused quite an uproar in the catholic clergy of the Archdiocese in the last few days, causing the Archbishop to summon a press conference to try and put the ‘rumours’ to bed.
Despite the disapproval of his superiors, Father O’Neil says that he will not stop dedicating his life to God and spread the word of the “Holy Mother”.
“I wish to continue preaching” says the elderly cleric. “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…”
Father John preaches at a Catholic Church in South Boston, and no press release or statement has been released as to whether he will be allowed to keep doing so.
