About this item
The Mystical City of God is an exceptionally great work of historical significance. This becomes apparent from the official action taken by a number of Popes, all indirectly approving of the work and promoting its publication. Pope Innocent XI and Pope Alexander VIII in 1690 expressly declared that the City of God may be read by all the faithful. Pope Clement XI and Benedict XIV gave like decisions. The great pope Benedict XIII, when he was archbishop of Benevent, used these revelations as material for a series of sermons on the Blessed Virgin.
Numerous popes, cardinals and theologians have praised this work over a period of more than 300 years. The learned and pious Cardinal D’Aguirre says that he considers all the studies of fifty years of his life as of small consequence in comparison with the doctrines he found in this book, which in all things are in harmony with the Holy Scriptures, the Holy Fathers and Councils of the Church. The Venerable Superior-General of St. Sulpice, Abbe’ Emery, adds: “Only since I read the revelations of Mary of Agreda do I properly know Jesus and his Holy Mother.”
