Death Be not Proud

Deacon Michael Bellinder tells Jack Knight in this interview how he cheated death twice.
In the first instance, Michael was attacked by five ski-masked people, grabbed by the neck, kicked and pushed to the ground with a gun in his.  For some reason he began saying the Act of Contrition and intense peace came over him. He found himself saying “I forgive you.” by a power outside himself.

The second incident involved hip surgery and serious illness following this that plagued his life for almost two years. This time a good friend came to his rescue.
