  1. Thank you so much for your response! I’m sure you’re very busy but thank you for clarifying, God bless you for all your work for The Kingdom!

  2. Sorry, Sean: I just realised something… When reading your last comment, I assumed you were commenting on a different post… (I need to be more attentive)

    Looking back on the this post, I probably should have clarified a few things. But this would potentially take hours.

    Basically, the writings all of the individuals referenced have received the imprimatur as the bare minimum. Others have been diligently scrutinised (St. Bridget of Sweden, for instance).

    I might quickly edit the post now.

    ‘Sit nomen Domini benedictum’

  3. Thank you for this information, I’m always wondering how to keep track of all the mystics and those the church has approved.

  4. Where did you find the information to complete this with accuracy? I wonder about Padre Pio and some others.
