Page 59 of Fr. Groeschel's book mentions the above tidbit re: St. Catherine and the IC. The citation goes onto page 60, which is, alas, not part of the free preview. The chapter, though, is entitled "Sources of Error in Private Revelation" and the subsection deals with "Subjective Need" as a source for error in private revelation. However, w/o page 60, we really can't see the full point Fr. Benedict is trying to makePapist said:So this may not be true after all?Irish Hermit said:I am not able to do that. The small amount of information I was able to give comes from a Catholic source, Catholic Answers Forum.Papist said:Since I am probably not going to run out and buy this book, could you provide a quote?Irish Hermit said:In Fr. Benedict Groeschel's book, "A Still, Small Voice" he talks about St. Catherine of Siena's declaration that she received a revelation that the Virgin Mary was not immaculately conceived.Mickey said:I also remember reading somewhere that the Catholic Saint Catherine of Sienna received a vision where the Virgin Mary told Catherine that she was not immaculately conceived. Do you know anything about this?
I see that Fr Groeschel's book is on google books. Maybe someone could seach it? I fear that my old spinning jenny of a computer cannot manage to download it all.
Here is the link to his book
