Warning against Mrs Vassula Ryden’s visit to the Ile-de-France region

The French association “True Life in God”,who promotes Mrs Vassula Ryden’s activities, has announced her next visit to Paris and a conference she will be holding at the Pavillon Baltard (Nogent-sur-Marne) on Sunday 25 November 2012.

The Holy See, through the voice of the Roman congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has pronounced itself several times regarding her (Notification dated 6 October 1995, letters of 4 April 2002 and 25 January 2007). The Holy See has expressed great reservations regarding her claimed revelations and has not recognized the supernatural nature of the messages that Mrs Ryden claims to have received. The Congregation advises the Catholic faithful not to lend support to Mrs Ryden’s activities or those of the association “True Life in God” by participating in them.

Moreover, since Mrs Vassula Ryden is of Greek-Orthodox origin, the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople has published a declaration regarding her dated 16 March 2011, requesting that the faithful do not put their trust in her teachings.

I want to inform the Catholic faithful of Paris that the visit of Mrs Vassula Ryden and the events that will surround it are in no way connected to the Catholic Church. The acts of religious nature that could take place during it (the celebration of Mass or of deliverance and healing prayers) would be outside the communion with the Catholic Church.

Warning against Mrs Vassula Ryden’s visit to the Diocese of Strasbourg

The French association “True Life in God”, who promotes Mrs Vassula Ryden’s activities, has announced her next visit to Strasbourg on Friday November 23, where she will hold a conference.

The Roman Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has pronounced itself several times regarding her by expressing great reservations and by not recognizing the supernatural nature of her claimed messages. The Congregation advises the Catholic faithful not to lend support to her activities by participating in them.

The Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople has pronounced itself recently in an identical manner, since Mrs Vassula Ryden was a member of that Church.

I want to inform the Catholic faithful of the Diocese of Lyon that this event is in no way connected to the Church. The acts of religious nature that could take place during it – Mass, deliverance and healing prayers – if they do take place, will be outside the communion with the Catholic Church.

Bishop of Avignon (October 2012)

Article published on Tuesday October 30, 2012 by Mgr Jean-Pierre Cattenoz, Bishop of Avignon (France) on the official website of his diocese: http://diocese-avignon.fr/spip/Communique

 
 

Communiqué

Mrs Vassula Ryden will be coming soon to Avignon at the Parc des Expositions. After having contacted the Nunciature, all the Catholic faithful are reminded that it is not appropriate to participate in the different meetings organized during her visit.

Likewise, it is requested that no priest celebrate the Eucharist in connection with her visit.

We have in the Gospel and in the New Testament the revelation of everything that is necessary for Salvation. We should not seek in Mrs Vassula Ryden’s “True life in God”, or in any other “revelation” or private meditation, enlightenment to grow in faith. Let’s nourish ourselves with the Gospel and we will grow in the Church in the intimacy of Christ.
