A description of the experience

The biography of St. Thomas Aquinas (ca. 1225 to 7 March 1274) states that on the year  before his death he returned to Naples, staying in that city for a few weeks during an illness. While he was there two monks saw a light described as a big star coming through the window. It rested for a moment on the head of the sick man and disappeared again, just as it came.
