"My mother has a huge, oversized picture of the Divine Mercy in her home," said Kim. "Every time he walks in front of it, he bows his head in respect. Many times I have seen him praying before it and once I saw him kissing it. One day we are sitting in the living room talking about his accident. I tell him how very lucky he is to have survived; he looks toward the picture of Divine Mercy and says, 'Its Him. Its because of Him.'

If I remember, Saul’s experience when struck by lightning resembles a near death experience, too.

During this time of Lent, its wonderful to read such accounts.
I’ve never seen St. Thomas Aquinas’ experience called a “near death experience”. The Catholic encyclopedia calls it an “ecstasy” which I think is more accurate and not the same as a near death experience.
