Hi, guys —
We are reading the book Get us out of
here; it has an Imprimatur.
- Does that mean the Church agrees that
Maria Simma sees and talks with the Poor
Souls in Purgatory?
Thanks in advance,
the Church endorse what Maria Simma says in
this book about the Poor Souls in Purgatory? }
The Imprimatur signifies that there
is nothing within the material that
is contrary to faith or morals, however it does not necessarily mean that
the claims over and above that, within
the material are all true.
So regarding the private revelation
that you mention, an imprimatur would
not claim everything written is true (although
it might be), but rather, what
is written does not contradict Church
Hi, Larry —
I have the book in front of me.
Can you tell me what page the imprimatur
is on; I couldn't find any.
Hi, Mike —
No page number but the first page
is blank on both sides then the next
face is the title page, and behind
that, at the top is:
with May 2002: 1 — 1,500
and ending with
Eighth printing, October, 2010:
62,2010: 62,501 — 67,500
After that is the publisher information
followed by the copyright information
then the imprimatur.
It has a ISBN number of: 0-9727445-0-9.
My wife and I are both reading it
and it is hard to put down.
Thanks for the information.
My copy was only in the fifth printing,
so between my copy and the eighth
printing, the book must have received
its imprimatur, if it is in fact, an imprimatur you are looking at.
Although it's hard to put down, I
still echo Paul's comments on your
We have to be careful to separate theological opinion, which the content
of this book is, from the doctrines
and dogmas of the Church. We are not bound to believe theological opinion but we are bound to believe the doctrines
and dogmas of the Church.
I'm sure Maria Simma would
agree and understand my point.
