Fr. Mitch Pacwa, Sandra Miesel
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that "Throughout the ages, there have been so called 'private' revelations, some of which have been recognized by the authority of the Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ's definitive Revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history."
It continues, "Christian faith cannot accept "revelations" that claim to surpass or correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment"
Fr. Pacwa puts to the test in light of the Catechism and magisterial teachings a series of volumes that were supposedly the result of private revelation - Maria Valtorta's "Poem of the Man God."
