Magical Moments of Mesorah - The Avnei Nezer to the Shem M'Shmuel

"Towards the end of his life Rabbeinu [Rav Michoel Forshlager] told the following story: When one of his sons was born he entered the room of the Avnei Nezer to ask him to be the sandek at the bris. 'When I entered I saw my holy master sitting very close to his son, the Shem m'Shmuel. The face of the Rebbe was burning like fire. The Shem m'Shmuel's face radiated happiness and tears flowed forth from his eyes like a streaming river. I jumped back in fear...apparently at that moment his father was transmitting to him lofty matters.'"
Michoel b'Achat by Benzion Bergman, p.42 [Hebrew]
