Question from Shirley Banez on 12-26-2012:

What is the Catholic Church's view on people who claim to have had a near-death experience?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 01-06-2013:

Dear Shirley,

The Church has no definitive position on this matter. The only definite position she holds is that people will meet their Judge and Lord. T%at is a certainty.
