Maria Valtorta is considered to be one of the most edifying visionaries of our time, in that she recorded the most comprehensive and detailed Private Revelation of the Gospels ever; "The Gospel as it Was Revealed to Me" in Italy, and later published in English as the "Poem of the Man-God" after her death. Some object to the term "Man-God", unbeknownst that "Man-God" was used in several Papal Encyclicals, particularly by Pope John Paul II (Ioannes Paulus PP II - Dives in Misericordia).  She was born in Caserta, Italy in 1897, passed away in Viareggio in 1961 and is buried under the altar of the Capitular Chapel of the Servants of Mary at The Basilica of the Annunciation in Florence, Italy. Her dictations and visions took place during the times of WWII and give a wonderfully detailed account of the lives of Jesus and Mary.

Valtorta conferences are important events for the discussion, sharing, and promotion of Maria Valtorta’s writings throughout the world. Conferences are an opportunity for scholars and experts to give talks about their research into Maria Valtorta’s writings, her history, and the impact her writings have, are having, and will have on the hundreds of thousands of readers in dozens of countries around the world. It is also an opportunity for Valtorta readers to gather together and share their mutual love of Valtorta and her writings, as well as their insights and experiences.

Maria Valtorta’s visions are the only Private Revelations to attain a Papal Order to Publish. A high-ranking prelate personally handed Pope Pius XII a 12-volume typewritten copy of Valtorta’s The Poem of the Man-God in 1947. His Holiness then summoned her Spiritual Director to a special meeting in February of 1948, in which He ordered the publishing before three Priests: Fr. Romualdo M. Migliorini (Prefect Apostle in Africa), Fr. Corrado Berti (Professor of Dogmatic and Sacramental Theology at the Pontifical "Marianum" Theological Faculty of Rome from 1939 onward, later becoming Secretary of the Faculty from 1950 to 1959, as well as consultant to the Fathers of the Second Vatican Council), and Fr. Andrew M. Cecchin (Prior of the International College of the Servites of Mary in Rome).  These aforementioned Priests documented this event immediately afterwards with signed testimony.  The fact that the Pope did grant this audience was historically documented the next day, February 27, 1948 in L’Osservatore Romano Citta Del Vaticano, no. 48, p.1.


"In 1987, Vatican Cardinal Edouard Gagnon was persuaded to locate and evaluate the original minutes from the February 26, 1948 Papal meeting transcribed by the Vatican Recording Cardinal who accompanied Pope Pius XII".  Originally incredulous, a few weeks later he courageously wrote from the Vatican that Pope Pius XII's action was: "The kind of official Imprimatur granted before witnesses by the Holy Father in 1948. An "Official Imprimatur" of the Supreme Authority of the Church". Cardinal Gagnon was the Peritus during the second Vatican Council, (expert Theologian Advisor and Consultant).  He had a Doctorate in Theology and taught Canon law for ten years at the Grand Seminary.  He also served as President of the Vatican Council.  The Code of Canon Law - Book II, Part II, Section I, Chapter I, Article I - gives the Pope full and supreme power over all levels of the Church and free use to exercise this power. The Papal order came first. Canon law prohibits this Papal order from being reversed by subordinate levels of Church authority. Canon law clearly requires that this Papal order be embraced with unconditional acceptance and submission.

     First Vatican Council, Session IV, Chp. IV, p.IX:  "So, then, if anyone says that the Roman Pontiff has merely an office of supervision and guidance, and not the full and supreme power of jurisdiction over the whole Church, and this not only in matters of faith and morals, but also in those which concern the discipline and government of the Church dispersed throughout the whole world; or that he has only the principal part, but not the absolute fullness, of this supreme power; or that this power of his is not ordinary and immediate both over all and each of the Churches and over all and each of the pastors and faithful: let him be anathema." - Catechism of the Catholic Church, 883 - "The college or body of bishops has no authority unless united with the Roman Pontiff, Peter's successor, as its head."

     Maria Valtorta's writings received Imrimaturs from Bishop Roman Danylak (Titular Bishop of Nysea, Rome), Bishop Bonicilli (Abano, Italy) and Archbishop Soosa Pakiam of Trimandrum.  In addition a Nihil Obstat was given to the "Poem of the Man-God" by  Msgr. Luigi Lovazzano (Vicar-General).  If the Vatican thought these Imprimaturs were in error, it would have requested them to be removed. Nonetheless, the Vatican has let these Imprimaturs stand.

     Renowned Mariologist Father Gabriel Roschini, OSM was an outstanding advocate of Maria Valtorta's writings.  Pope John Paul II often referred to Father Gabriel M. Roschini as one of the greatest Marioligists who ever lived.  He was a decorated professor at the "Marianum" Pontifical Faculty of Theology in Rome, and an advisor to the Holy Office. He wrote over 130 Books on the Blessed Mother, all of which are in the Vatican Library. In his last book (which Father Gabriel said was his greatest, "The Virgin Mary In The Writings of Maria Valtorta"), the first two pages contain a letter of endorsement by Pope Paul VI.  Page one displays a photocopy of the original letter in Italian complete with Vatican insignia, and page two contains the English translation.  When Pope Paul VI was Archbishop of Milan, after evaluating "The Poem of the Man-God" by Maria Valtorta, He ordered her entire works to be sent to the Milan Seminary library.

On September 29, 2012 Pope Benedict XVI Beatified one of the most charismatic promoters of The Poem of the Man-God Blessed Gabriel Allegra, OFM, the only Scripture scholar to be Beatified in the 20th century. His beatification commencement and a decree of a miracle were attributed to him and approved by Pope John Paul II on April 23, 2002. As a St. Jerome of our time, Blessed Allegra was the first one to translate the entire Bible into Chinese. He was an outspoken and avid long-time supporter of Maria Valtorta, and spent many years of his life studying, promoting, and defending the Poem of the Man-God. Both Holy Pontiffs were well aware of Blessed Gabriel Allegra's resolute dogmatic dedication of publishing articles advocating the Poem. According to Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, the secretary of Pope John Paul II, the Pontiff was an enthusiastic reader of Maria Valtorta. The Cardinal testifies to having often seen one of the volumes of The Gospel as Revealed to Me [a.k.a. The Poem of the Man-God] on the Pope’s bedside table (Source: Bishop Johanan-Mariam Cazenave in the Preface to L’Énigme Valtorta [The Valtorta Enigma], a book by Jean-François Lavère, RSI Publishers, 2012, page 16. This testimony is also recounted (in French) here:

Father Padre Pio was also an advocate of Maria Valtorta’s writings. One year before Padre Pio’s death, a woman named Mrs. Elisa Lucchi asked him if he advised reading "The Poem of the Man-God" by Maria Valtorta. He replied, "I don’t just advise you, I insist that you read it!".

Fr. Leo, a personal chaplain of Mother Theresa of Calcutta for 3 years, noticed that she always carried 3 books with her, wherever she went. One was the Bible and the other was her breviary. He asked about the third, and it was "The Poem of the Man-God by Maria Valtorta.  He asked her what it was about, and she told him "Read it".  He asked her again, and she responded with the same answer, "Read it".  Additionally, in 1996, Mother Theresa made a personal request of artist Susan Conroy to render a depiction of Our Blessed Mother as She appeared in a description by Maria Valtorta (Bottom of linked page).

Fr. Calloway was a hopeless atheist drug dealer who was instantly transformed into a fervent apostle of Christ through a book about Medjugorje.


Several Medjugorje Visionaries verified that Our Holy Mother endorses the "Poem of the Man-God"  In an interview with Attorney Jan Connell of the Pittsburgh Center for Peace on January 27, 1988, Connell asked the visionary Vicka Ivankovich if there were any other books Our Lady had told her about. Vicka replied: "Yes. The Poem of the Man-God by Maria Valtorta, ten volumes. Our Lady says The Poem of the Man-God is the truth.... Our Lady said if a person wants to know Jesus he should read Poem of the Man-God by Maria Valtorta. That book is the truth." Link


Breaking News; On January 19th, 2014 Vatican Insider Magazine reported that the Papal Medjugorje Commission concluded favorable of the Marian Apparitions:


The findings of the Papal Commission specifically target the three key contentions espoused by the Bishop of Mostar (Bishop Ratko Peric), who condemned the Medjugorje Apparitions on the grounds of being a hoax, that the Visionaries were using tricks and the Apparitions bore no fruit. The Papal Commission expressly opposes each of these particular counts, citing that the Marian Apparitions are "no hoax", there is "no proof of any tricks" and they exhibit "Spiritual fruits in a significant way" (the ONLY criteria outlined in the Bible by Jesus for discernment). The Vatican promptly removed all censorious, negative and warning editorials from their website shortly after this article. The only two remaining references to Medjugorje on the Vatican's website are two favorable articles; one in Cardinal Ruini's bio (1), the second comparing Medjugorje to Lourdes (2).



     The Centro Editorial Valtortiano (CEV), or Valtorta Publishing Center, was established in 1985 by Dr. Emilio Pisani, the son of Michele Pisani (1896-1963), who was the first publisher of "The Poem of the Man-God" by Maria Valtorta.



According to an article in Spirit Daily:

Maria Valtorta's Beatification cause was accepted in the Congregation of Saints

On January 12, 2012 - Michael Brown of Spirit Daily reported that Father José Antonio Fortea Cucurull (a well-known exorcist from the Diocese of Alcalá de Henares in Madrid, Spain) that he was informed in Rome that Maria Valtorta is up for Beatification: "Her cause was accepted in the Congregation of Saints." However, this claim has not been confirmed by official sources.




Vatican Website Article Which Mentions Maria Valtorta and the Poem of the Man-God


Vatican Website Translation: "In the first half of the 20th Century, during and after World War II, there was a lady named Maria Valtorta in Italy, who saw and heard the Gospel, writing a masterpiece in more than 4000 pages of works (calculated according to the English version: Maria Valtorta, "The Poem of the Man-God", 1986, five volumes). The book is divided into seven parts: 1st, the Hidden Life 1-43; 2nd, the first year of His Public Life 44-140; 3rd, the second year of His Public Life 141-311; 4th, the third year of His Public Life 312-538; 5th, the preparation for His suffering and death 539-598; 6th, the Passion 599-611; 7th, Glorification 612-647. In the first volume, "The Hidden Life", 43 chapters have been translated into Chinese and published in 2006. Hopefully, the rest of the Chinese version will continue to be published in succession, to help God’s faithful savor the message of the Gospel."


Special Note: Chinese Catholics have a very special place in their hearts for Maria Valtorta's "Poem of the Man-God" as it was promulgated by Renowned Bible Scholar Fr. Gabriel M. Allegra, O.F.M..  Fr. Allegra is highly revered by Chinese Catholics for being the very first to translate the entire Catholic Bible into Chinese (for every one person who speaks English, there are five who speak Chinese).  The cause for Fr. Allegra's Canonization was started in 1984 by Bishop John Wu in Hong Kong, 8 years after his death. He was declared venerable by the Holy See in 1994 and his decree of beatification was promulgated in 2002 by Pope John Paul II. The Roman Curia announced through the Sicilian Franciscan Holy Name Province, that Venerable Gabriel Allegra, O.F.M. was beatified on September 29, 2012, at the Cathedral of Arcireale, Catania in Sicilia. Gabriel Allegra is the only biblical scholar of the 20th century who has been beatified.

“Maria Valtorta: "Peter’s tomb is not in the Vatican”


Has Heaven set up the Revelations to Maria Valtorta  for yet another a major public demonstration of authenticity? If the tomb of Saint Peter is really in the Torpignattara catacomb (catacombs of St. Peter and St. Marcellinus in Via Casilina in Rome) where Maria Valtorta was told by Heaven it was, rather than in Vatican Hill, it would probably be the biggest archaeological find in the history of Christianity.




R.W. Schoenecker


We would like to express our sincere gratitude to author R.W. Schoenecker for his book “Agnus Dei” (ISBN 978-1-4327-6166-0) from the works of Maria Valtorta, , published by Outskirts Press of Denver. It is a novelized version of “The Poem of the Man-God” that is designed as a primer for those works. It effectively introduces the reader to Valtorta's writings, and spurs an interest in acquiring all five volumes of the “Poem”.

Literary Fiction or Ancient Astronomical and Meteorological Observations in the Work of Maria Valtorta?


The article below was written by Professor Emilio Matricciani and Dr. Liberato De Caro, it was translated into English and published in the Swiss journal MDPI on June 9, 2017. In the scientific journal Scienze e Ricerche (Science and Research), Professor Emilio Matricciani of the Department of Electronics, Information, and Bioengineering (DEIB) at the Polytechnic of Milan, and Dr. Liberato De Caro of the Institute of Crystallography, National Research Council (IC-CNR), Bari Polytechnic, co-authored an article entitled “Finzione letteraria o antiche osservazioni astronomiche e meteorologiche nell’opera di Maria Valtorta?” (“Literary fiction or ancient astronomical and meteorological observations in the work of Maria Valtorta?”).






Pope Pius XII's Command to Publish Maria Valtorta’s Main Work (February 26, 1948)


A high-ranking prelate personally handed Pope Pius XII a 12-volume typewritten copy of the Poem of the Man-God in 1947. In the following months, the priest who was in charge of postal delivery directly to Pope Pius XII’s desk saw the bookmark in Valtorta’s writings on his desk moving forward day by day. After these volumes were evaluated by the Pope, he granted a special audience with the three Servites of Mary in charge of this work: Fr. Corrado M. Berti, O.S.M., Fr. Romualdo M. Migliorini, and Fr. Andrew M. Cecchin. At this audience, as Bishop of Rome and the Vicar of Christ, Pope Pius XII commanded them to publish it, saying: “Publish it just as it is. There is no need to give an opinion as to whether it is of supernatural origin. Those who read it will understand.” Father Berti testifies: “I asked the Pope if we should remove the inscriptions: ‘Visions’ and ‘Dictations’ from The Poem before publishing it. And he answered that nothing should be removed.” Frs. Berti, Migliorini, and Cecchin documented the Pope’s words immediately afterwards. Fr. Berti’s signed testimony is located in Isola del Liri, Italy (and is also viewable online). Pope Pius XII’s audience with these three priests was also historically documented the next day, February 27, 1948, in the Vatican’s newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.





What is the Position of the Church on Maria Valtorta’s Main Work?


The latest (and currently juridically binding) position of the Church is represented by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s decision in 1992 to explicitly give permission to Dr. Pisani at the Centro Editoriale Valtortiano (the publishing house of Maria Valtorta’s works) to continue publishing her work as it is without any needed modifications to the text. Thus, the Church has given permission to the publisher to publish Valtorta’s The Gospel as Revealed to Me (also known as The Poem of the Man-God) and has given the faithful permission to read it. This action and permission also implicitly acknowledges that the work is free from error in faith and morals and may be safely read by the faithful.





JCL Thesis: The Current Juridic and Moral Value of the Index of Forbidden Books (with Maria Valtorta Case Study)

By Fr. Anthony Pillari


Fr. Anthony Pillari published a JCL thesis for the Faculty of Canon Law of St. Paul University entitled “The Current Juridic and Moral Value of the Index of Forbidden Books”. This thesis gives the history of the Index of Forbidden Books, explains the current juridic and moral status of the Index of Forbidden Books after its abrogation by Pope Paul VI in 1966, and includes a case study analyzing and explaining the canonical status of the major work of Maria Valtorta. The Maria Valtorta case study demonstrates that when a person chooses to read, publish, or promote Maria Valtorta’s The Poem of the Man-God (now entitled The Gospel as Revealed to Me), there is no violation of ecclesiastical law. It also analyzes the relevant letters of Cardinal Ratzinger, Bishop Tettamanzi, Bishop Kindukulam, and Bishop Danylak, and shows that a Catholic may express belief in the supernatural origin of Valtorta’s work and promote it as such without being in violation of ecclesiastical law or being guilty of any form of disobedience. Fr. Pillari’s thesis also details the admiration that three beatified persons have publicly expressed concerning Valtorta’s work (including Blessed Allegra’s belief in its supernatural origin) and that their beatification invites Catholics to respect and share their opinion concerning Valtorta’s work, even in some ways above the private opinions of Church officials who have not been raised to the level of beatification. Of special significance in this thesis is the inclusion of a signed testimonial letter of Fr. Leo Maasburg, National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Austria and a close associate of St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Fr. Maasburg’s testimonial relates that Mother Teresa carried Maria Valtorta’s The Poem of the Man-God with her in her travels, read this work, and recommended him to also read it.






Maria Valtorta: Science and Faith Converge (Zenit News)


The life and works of the mystic of Viareggio have been examined by international scholars who have pointed out the astonishing agreement between her visions and the times of Jesus (October 27, 2016 Rita Ricci: Church & Religion). Many wonder who Maria Valtorta is and why her life and her writings capture so much attention, and it is precisely for those who are still unaware of her that the Valtorta Foundation has organized a first international conference to become familiar with the prodigies of the mystic of Viareggio, who is known in the United States, Canada, Europe, Oceania, Australia, as well as Italy, where she lived until her death, in 1961. A two-day conference, on October 22 and 23, 2016, to get to know her work L’Evangelo come mi è stato rivelato [The Gospel as Revealed to Me], which recounts the life of Jesus, of his mother, Mary, and of all the apostles, in a clear and simple way, and enriched with more facts than the canonical Gospels of Luke, John, Matthew, and Mark. Certain aspects were examined in particular: the astronomical and geological data that scientifically correspond between Valtorta’s narrative and the skies of two thousand years ago, as attested by NASA programs. And it is precisely the scientific data that amazes and captures our attention. Many scientists over the course of the years – astronomers, physicists, and geologists – have approached her work, at first with the intention of contesting it, but in the end being fascinated and astounded by the vividness of her descriptions, which meticulously illustrate the climatic conditions of those days, the many places in the Holy Land that are unknown to most people, and the movements of the stars and planets that shone at that time in the skies, all of which have been scientifically proven.





Discovering the “Gospel” of Maria Valtorta (Zenit News)


Don Ernesto Zucchini illustrates the most surprising aspects of the life of the mystic of Viareggio to whom, on October 22 and 23, [2016,] will be dedicated an international conference (October 16, 2016, Rita Ricci: Church & Religion). Many wonder who Maria Valtorta is and why her life and her writings capture so much attention, and it is precisely for those who are still unaware of her that the Valtorta Foundation has organized a first international conference to become familiar with the prodigies of the mystic of Viareggio, who is known in the United States, Canada, Europe, Oceania, Australia, as well as Italy, where she lived until her death, in 1961. For the first time in Italy, on October 22 and 23, [2016,] an international conference will be dedicated to the study and knowledge of Maria Valtorta. ZENIT has attempted to reconstruct the story of the visionary from Viareggio and to understand why, 55 years after her death, people still examine her life. We have talked with Don Ernesto Zucchini, the 70-year old president of the Fondazione Maria Valtorta [the Maria Valtorta Foundation], professor of theology since 2009 at the Scuola di Formazione Teologica [School of Theological Training] of the diocese of Massa Carrara, the main speaker in a Radio Maria broadcast on the mystic, and parish priest at Pontremoli, in the province of Massa Carrara and in four other, neighbouring localities.

Shroud researcher and author Brendan Whiting included several references to Maria Valtorta's writings in his groundbreaking 2006 book "The Shroud Story".  Brendan lost his long fight with Leukemia on January of 2009. Whiting's book introduced the world to the most powerful evidence that the 1988 Shroud c-14 data (dating the Shroud in the 14th Century) was invalid.  At first, his book turned the Shroud community upside-down, now his contention has gained world-wide acceptance.

     Astronomical details in Maria Valtorta's writings have been proven strikingly accurate.  Harvard educated Theoretical Physicist Lonnie Lee VanZandt upon reading "The Poem of the Man-God" observed that in March of year 0033 Valtorta recorded in one of her visions seeing Jupiter, Mars, Venus and "stars of Orion: of Rigil and Betelgeuse, of Aldebaran, of Perseus, Andromeda & Cassiopeia and the Pleiades" along with a waning moon in the night sky.  Using a complex Astronomical computer program, Professor VanZandt conducted a stellar excursion into the distant past and discovered that this was only possible for two days in March of 0033.  This astronomical scenario doesn't occur for many decades (before and after) those two days in March, 0033.  Moreover, VanZandt uncovered several other similar astronomical conformations.  It would have been unfeasible for anyone in the 1940's to be capable of determining these astronomical alignments.  These impossibly exact details "tax the credulity of even the immovable atheist more than the alternative that Jesus showed it to Valtorta.  In the words of Sherlock Holmes, when you eliminated the impossible, that which remains, however merely improbable, must be true" (Theoretical Physicist Professor Lonnie Lee VanZandt).

Authentic Proof


Voiding The Voices of Heaven

Dave Webster's compilation on the 3 Days of Darkness

     Researcher David J. Webster observed that Maria Valtorta named nine towns and villages that were not discovered until after her death. He authored a landmark 31 page article that fundamentally proves the authenticity of Maria Valtorta's writings. The "Poem of the Man-God" may be the very first Private Revelation ever to be scientifically proven genuine. David meticulously and methodically examines Maria Valtorta’s strikingly accurate descriptions of first Century Palestine for every piece of topographical evidence. He then compares this evidence with currently known facts that are only now being proven authentic.  He has a charisma reminiscent of John the Baptist.

     "Over thirty percent or 79 of the 255 geographical sites in Palestine mentioned in the Poem were not listed in the 1939 International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE) Atlas. 62 of these 79 were not even listed in the 184 page Macmillan Bible Atlas (MBA) published in 1968. Where did Maria Valtorta get all these names? For a first century eye-witness to include so many obscure and unknown names would, of course, be expected. And most surprising is that these names, obscure and unknown in the 1940’s, are being proven authentic. 52 of these 62 have no biblical reference whatever and 17 of these with no biblical reference have been either indirectly confirmed as authentic by recent "ancient external sources" found in the Macmillan Bible Atlas (1968) or actually listed in the HarperCollins Atlas of the Bible (1989). This makes a total of 29 confirmations since the 1939 ISBE atlas listing. Also among those 62 sites are mentioned the ruins of 6 ancient Palestinian cities some corresponding to the modern consensus on location. In addition, Valtorta’s precise descriptions of the natural topography of Palestine from numerous locations and the information about the outside pagan world of that day, including people, places, customs, Greek and Roman mythology, related in the conversations of that day, are strikingly correct."

Founder of the Blue Army of Fatima (25 million members at its peak).  Haffert was introduced to Maria Valtorta's writings by the Bishop of Fatima.  After reading the "The Poem of the Man-God", he authored a book:

"That Wonderful Poem"


Visions and Dictations of Jesus to Monsignor Don Ottavio Michelini

  "I have dictated to Maria Valtorta, a victim soul, a marvelous work. Of this work I am the Author. You yourself, Son, have taken account of the raging reactions of Satan.... You have verified the resistance that many priests oppose to this work. This also proves, Son, that he who has not sensed in the Poem the savor of the Divine, the perfume of the Supernatural, has a soul encumbered and darkened."

A few months ago, a damaging fire occurred in the convent of the Zambia Sisters’ community which caused financial hardship to the whole community of which Sister Christine is Superior. There is an appeal for financial help to assist with the community’s urgent needs.

On 1st April 2012 (Palm Sunday) the entire main block of the convent house got burnt completely with all household goods. The community at the Generalate has become congested. Before the house burnt, the purchase of a new house was already on course and they put the burnt convent rebuilding on hold, to finish purchasing the new house, put it on rent, to contribute to rebuilding of the burnt convent. They need a lot of help with this rebuilding.

Events of Maria Valtorta's "Poem of the Man-God"

Valtorta is a wonderful new site providing the text of the Poem in addition to other revelations of Maria Valtorta in six languages. is the latest new site that provides exceptional insight and pertinent documentation for those interested in further research into Maria Valtorta and her writings.

The Gospels As Revealed to Me

Forum is a forum dedicated to discussion of Maria Valtorta’s writings.

We are very appreciative to for writing a letter to Bishop Boland concerning Maria Valtorta, particularly worded:

"I am a close friend of Marija Pavlovic, one of the Visionaries in Medjugorje, and there is no question that she spoke to Our Lady and asked Her if one can read the Poem of the Man-God.  Our Lady answered that it was acceptable to read."

In response, Cardinal Boland stated he sequentially wrote Cardinal Ratzinger, whom he claimed replied requesting the Publisher to include a disclaimer.  The Publisher was willing to comply, provided Boland forwarded a copy of the original Cardinal Ratzinger letter.  Boland was never forthcoming in providing anyone a copy of this letter.  Moreover, only Boland's eyes seen the Cardinal Ratzinger letter in question.  The publisher was hesitant, particularly due to the pedophile controversy Boland was becoming increasingly entangled in:

"The greatest books outside of Holy Scripture I have ever read!" -Wayne Weible


Regrettably, a few Medjugorje websites consider the confirmations of Maria Valtorta's Writings by Our Holy Mother at Medjugorje a liability to future Catholic Church approval of the Apparitions.  Many have even reverted to modifying Mary's phraseology to conform with human critical philosophical viewpoints.  Fortunately, there are a few websites dedicated to Medjugorje that have remained loyal to Mary's Divine Wisdom;,, and  When the Ten Secrets begin to unfold and final Miracles take place, people will be aware of the Valtorta confirmations through these sites that persevered in loyalty to Our Holy Mother's Heavenly knowledge.

The Poem of the Man-God posted online in Tagalog (Filipino)

Before the end of the 80’s my wife received a copy of a certain magazine published in English, whereby chapter by chapter of Maria Valtorta’s “The Poem of the Man-God” was published on a regular basis. My wife did not know why she was receiving it or who was sending it. Nevertheless, I found it intriguing that the things I was reading were not in the Bible: I mean the Bible has them, but not in those details! In short I got hooked, that I looked for the original books so that my reading would be complete, from beginning to end. And I found them, just in our neighborhood, just a block away from our house, in our parish church: our good parish priest lent them to me for Xeroxing.

This translation in the Philippine national language Tagalog, also called Filipino, is the outcome of receiving that magazine sent by an unknown sender. For you: thank you!

"To The Priests Our Lady's Beloved Sons" of The Marian Movement of Priests may be the most important book to be reading in our times!  This book can be ordered for free from the below link, but please give them a donation for this Ministry if you can.  Reading this book can not be over emphasized!

There are many correlations in Father Stefano Gobbi's Locutions to Maria Valtorta's writings.  For example, in the August 1st Locution Mary reveals that "'Mother!' was His last agonizing cry, the loud cry with which He expired on the Cross"

Maria Valtorta writes in Book 5, Chapter 605, The Crucifixion: "...and then a powerful cry, unimaginable in that exhausted body, bursts forth rending the air, the 'loud cry' mentioned by the Gospels and is the first part of the word 'Mother'  And nothing else"

We would like to thank Catholic Guidance Blogspot on their very detailed presentation of Maria Valtorta's writings and for making these books available on the web:


Father Patrick Maritn

Father Patrick Martin is a Blind Priest who gives seminars in Parishes all over the world, spoke of his gratitude for the Text-To-Speech (TTS) Mp3 audio format of the Poem for the blind and visually impaired, which he called a  "wonderful gift".  Previously he was only able to listen to Maria Valtorta's writings whenever another Priest was able to read them to him. &


Father Patrick Martin's own recordings:



Perhaps the most predominant controversy pertaining to the Medjugorje Apparitions transpired from the explicit approval given by Our Lady (via several of the visionaries) to a series of detailed supernatural Gospel narratives recorded by a bedridden woman Maria Valtorta of the third Carmelite Order during the 1940’s entitled "The Gospel as it was Revealed to Me" (later renamed by the Publisher to "The Poem of the Man-God". This endorsement by Our Lady developed into a highly controversial lightening rod, as the first book of this originally ten volume Italian series (five volume English series) was placed on the Index of Forbidden books in 1959.



America's Finest Hour

"America's Finest Hour" is a nationwide prayer campaign designed to save America from the evil that is sweeping across our land. The list of evil is long but the most profound crimes against God and humanity are abortion, same sex marriage, religious persecution, and the corruption of our youth.
