We recently received the following feedback from a follower of our ministry who was once a reader of the controversial Jesus Calling book by Sarah Young but found something so much better she wanted to share it with the rest of us.
Many people say they were inspired by the book, God Calling, which was written by two “listeners” who were using automatic writing to obtain messages that allegedly came from God; however, not everyone was impressed, such as this reader who said she found the content to be quite disturbing.
CM writes: “Is it okay for Catholics to join True Life in God prayer groups and can you tell me if there’s anything New Age about them?”
CM writes: “I was reading the blog on automatic writing and thought of Vassula who is well known throughout the world for her automatic writing which she says is from god I’m never really sure about this can you highlight this in any way for me?”
A few weeks ago someone called into our radio show to ask if a book entitled Jesus Calling, written by Sarah Young is okay for a Catholic to read.
LL writes: “Please compare and contrast “automatic writing” with “interlocutions” such as those given to St. Faustina and many other saints of antiquity.”
I couldn’t resist writing this blog in response to a press release I just received about a new book that supposedly contains words of wisdom from the Archangel St. Michael that were received via automatic writing.
