Someone recently posted Tradidi’s article Valtorta, d’Agreda, Emmerich - True or False Visions? on CathInfo.
A certain Nadir posted the following comment about it (link):
But in Saint Luke’s Gospel (1:34), the Mother of God said to the Angel Gabriel after the Annunciation, “How shall this be done, because I know not man?” This shows that she did not know everything.
From the OP.
The expression “I know not man” means I am a virgin. IT is not a matter of knowlege in the sense acquired information. Surely, as a priest, the writer would be aware of this use of language.
Nadir’s error is to assume that the author was referring to “because I know not man” when he concluded that “she [Our Lady] did not know everything”. However, that assumption is wrong. The author of this article (Fr. Jean-Luc Lafitte) was referring to the fact that Our Lady answered “How shall this be done” to the Angel Gabriel. In other words, Our Lady did not know how the Incarnation was to be done. This clearly disproves Maria Valtorta’s claim that “Our Lady had infused knowledge at the tender age of three”.
PS: I tried posting this correction on cathinfo myself but I appear to be banned there. If someone can please pass this reply on to Nadir.
