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?”
TC asks: “Can Catholics read Vassula Rydens books? I bought “Heaven is Real but so is Hell” at a Catholic bookstore. I asked the clerk if this book was approved by the Catholic Church and he said yes. I looked up info on the internet and became very confused if the Church warned us not to read her books. Please let me know if I should return the book. I don’t want to read anything that is dangerous to my faith.”
