A Guide to the Book of Heaven
Luisa Piccarreta's writings evaluated in the light of Catholic doctrine by Stephen Patton.
The Vatican is considering a cause for the canonization of Luisa Piccarreta (1865-1947), a simple bed-ridden woman who lived in southern Italy from 1865-1947. Though renowned for her extraordinary holiness, what has drawn the attention of the world has been the vast, decades-long diary that she kept of her mystical conversations with Jesus. Those conversations present a number of astonishing claims and promises.
For the first time in 2000 years Jesus invites all of mankind — through his revelation to Luisa — to experience the ultimate state of union with God: “living in the Divine Will”. What had previously been experienced on Earth by only four persons — Jesus, Mary, and Adam and Eve before the Fall — could now be experienced by anyone.
Even more remarkably, Jesus described his invitation — and Luisa‘s (and our) response to it — as a Third Fiat of God, claiming that it would somehow complete an even surpass his First Fiat of Creation and his Second Fiat of Redemption.
Can such stunning claims be reconciled with Sacred Scripture and Tradition?
This book shows — to those with doubts or reservations about Luisa‘s writings — that they indeed can be viewed within a framework of Catholic teaching. But it does more. It also shows — to those inspired by and drawn to her writings — how and why the indeed must be viewed within such a framework.
