HOW BROTHER PACIFICO, BEING IN PRAYER, SAW THE SOUL OF BROTHER UMILE, HIS BROTHER IN THE FLESH, GO UP TO HEAVEN

I find this story to be more about the reaction of the other brothers to Brother Pacifico's treatment of his brother's remains, and about his explanation of it, than it is about the vision that led to that treatment. Some subjects this story might invite comments on could be, the treatment of our mortal remains, and the communion of the saints. As the body of Christ, the church is a mystic community of all believers, living and dead.
