Boy Meets Great Granpa and Miscarried Sister in Heaven?...

While the recent Hollywood blockbuster Hereafter, starring Matt Damon, and directed by Clint Eastwood, shed light on the possibility of an afterlife, albeit one without God, as pointed out by Fr. Robert Barron in a recent commentary, a story on Fox News' morning show gives a different perspective.

Yesterday, Fox and Friends interviewed seven-year-old Colton Burpo and his father Todd, who has written a book, Heaven is for Real, about the boy’s afterlife experience when he was four. In the book, Colton describes, not only a Heaven with God the Father and Jesus Christ, but he also vividly describes meeting his great grandfather, who he never met, and a sister, that he never even knew about, who had died as a result of a miscarriage.
