Gianluca: awakened from coma

Gianluca: Good morning everybody, I am Gianluca Amadio, from Grottammare, Italy. Twenty-three years ago, in October 1991, I had an accident with my motorbike and I went into a coma. Everybody gave me up for dead. Doctors said that my brain was strongly damaged and there was nothing to do. My electroencephalogram was flat. My parents were called to give authorization for organs removal…

Don Marco: Nowadays, when electroencephalogram is flat, there is clinical death and irreversible conditions, according to doctors. Because of the high cost of the machine that keeps a person in life, usually doctors ask for authorization for organs removal, as soon as possible, also to avoid therapeutic obstinancy. What happened then?

Gianluca: I am fortunate because I have got a great family, a great mother and a great father, who took position against organs removal. My mother used to say: “My son will die with all his organs, as he was born! I put myself into the hands of God: If God wants Gianluca, I will accept his death, but if God wants that he is saved, he will live!” And I am alive, thanks to God. During Christmas festivities in 1991, I had a very strange dream…

Don Marco: So, you were like a dead man, a machine let your hearth beat, outside you looked like a vegetable, but inside you were conscious…

Gianluca: Yes, I wasn’t able to speak, to see and to move any parts of my body, but I was able to hear everything. When my edema was stable, I understood everything, on the contrary when it moved, I didn’t understand. However I knew I existed and I was conscious. I was speaking about my dream… On New Years’Eve 1991 the doctor visited me, he put his hand on my shoulder and said: “Happy New Year, Gianluca! The new year will be the year of your resurrection! Certainly he was inspired by God, because I really came back to life. I dreamt that a Man walked up to me: He was tall, He was curly-haired and curly-bearded, He was wearing a white tunic with a golden belt on His waist. I was playing in my house- garden, when He walked up to me from the right. When He was three metres of distance from me, I stood up and I walked up to Him. I was sad and I was crying so badly. I asked Him: “Who are you? Who are you? Tell me, please!”. So He answered: “I am God, God-Almighty!”. I kept crying and asked Him: “What can I do to survive?”. And He answered: “Pray to Me and I will save you!”. I kept crying and so He consoled me, embracing me and kissing me on my forehead. From that moment on, I haven’t cried any longer. I recovered from the coma, lasted seven months, and now I cry only when I look back on that act of limitless Love. I discovered that God always stays with us, He is ever-present. He inspires us, He suggests every word, every sentence, every action, every relation, to us. God is the only Hope for us. Necromancers don’t give strength, God does! They want a lot of money and above all they want your soul. Should I “sell” my soul to feel good on earth? This earthly life is only a little part of an immeasurable life, a little grain of sand of Life that He is going to give us in the future. I haven’t got a girlfriend, I have got only God. I am happy and I feel all-content. God is father, Mother and Brother, Sister, Woman, Man, Spirit and Flesh, Everything. God is All.

Don Marco: Praise the Lord for the miracle you received in response to your prayer, when you were in the coma!
