- Reaction score
The stigmata, as far as I know, is a phenomenon found only in the Roman Catholic Church. Given that, it seems there are four possible Eastern Orthodox responses to it: That it is an expression of God's grace granted and intelligible to those in another tradition; that it is demonically inspired; that it is psychologically induced or; that it is a hoax. Perhaps I've missed further possibilities. Any thoughts?
