One of Vassula Ryden’s first major setbacks

Swiss mystic speaks to Catholics

By Lucy Lethridge, September 30, 1994

Catholic Congregations in Sussex and Birmingham were introduced this week to international Christian mystic Vassula Ryden, whose supporters believe is the “Mediator of Divided Christians”.

Ms Ryden, who claims to have been awoken to the spiritual life when she saw the words “I am your guardian angel” appearing on a shopping list, is known for her healings and the messages she imparts, apparently directly from Our Lord, through the spoken and written word.

Tour organiser Ewa Allen told the Catholic Herald: “Jesus explained to Vassula that she is to be His instrument and her role is to unite Christians”.

Ms Ryden has published copies of her notebooks in which her handwriting changes dramatically during “conversations” with God.

“Vassula’s own handwriting is completely different” said Ewa Allen, “it changes into a very unusual and majestic style which, when shown to a top Paris graphologist, was pronounced to be ‘so perfect, it was almost inhuman’.”

Geneva-based Ms Ryden visited St Francis Church, Handsworth, Birmingham, and English Martyrs Church, Goring-on-Sea, Sussex, as part other three day British tour. One of the organisers of the Goring-on-Sea visit is Gary Bevans who has experienced a similar visitation from the Holy Spirit, which inspired him, he says, to paint the ceiling of English Martyrs Church with an exact replica of Michelangelo’s ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. Mr Bevans told the Catholic Herald that “following Vassula shows us in the world that we live in that we have lost our way, and that we need her message of unity.” Mgr Joseph Fallon of St Francis Church, Handsworth, which was first stop of the tour, said the visit had been a great success. “We hope it will bring great spiritual enrichment to those who heard her speak”, he said. And Fr John Edwards, attached to St Francis, stressed that “There is nothing at all that is contrary to the Catholic faith”.

 

Orthodox mystic rouses Cardinal’s ire

A Greek Orthodox mystic last week claimed that Cardinal Hume is pursuing a personal vendetta against her.

Vassula Ryden, housewife and religious visionary, claims to receive messages from the Holy Trinity, and attacked what she termed the “International Conspiracy” that last month led to a Notification from the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, inviting Catholic bishops to deny her a platform. Speaking to the Herald, the mystic alleged that Cardinal Hume had requested that her books be banned from St Paul’s Multimedia bookshop.
“It really surprises me that he could banish my books,” she says. “Pope Paul VI decreed in 1966 that writings of the supernatural are permitted by the Church.”

Mrs. Ryden claims the support of some 40 Catholic theologians, Catholic priests and bishops. “If I am condemned, then these Catholics must also be condemned,” Mrs. Ryden complained. “It is medieval. I am treated like a witch.”

Mrs. Ryden’s allegations were this week hotly refuted by a spokesperson from the Catholic Media Office.


Cardinal Basil Hume, OSB, was appointed Archbishop of Westminster and elevated as Cardinal in 1976. From 1979 Hume served also as President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. He held these appointments until his death from cancer in 1999.

Several Catholic critics have pointed out that Vassula Ryden later modified or even expunged some of her earlier “messages” as well as her comments and public statements, ostensibly when they created a stir or invited theological criticism. In the above interview with the Catholic Herald, one can see the real Vassula Ryden with claws and fangs bared. I cannot help but compare her whining and rebellious attitude to the Cardinal’s alleged ban on her writings with that of other genuine Church-approved mystics. Apparently realizing that it would do her little good to be critical of the Cardinal,
Vassula Ryden appears to have decided to change her tactics as is evidence by a line in an article published in TLIG,

on the Pope’s recently issued encyclical ‘Faith and Reason’.
