Against a popular private revelation-part two

I shall just highlight one more point from the website which is getting Catholic followers. This supposed mystic is dangerous and her revelations are protestant in theology. Many errors can be found. I listed three earlier, and another one to address is obvious. The person states that Jesus gives a plenary indulgence to those who say a prayer for seven days. No. Jesus does not give indulgences, the Church does. Obviously, this seer does not see the Church as the arbiter of grace and merit-only the Church's has the power to forgive sins and deal with punishment due to sin, as Christ gave that power to St. Peter, see John 20:23. Again, the seer circumvents Catholic teaching and tradition regarding the sacraments, in this case, Confession. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. DR

The consistent view of this false prophet is that such graces as the seal of Confirmation, discussed in the last post, and now the forgiveness of sin or the temporal punishment or penances due to sin, is outside the provenance of the hierarchy, the Teaching Magisterium, the Tradition of the Church.

If any Catholic follows the teaching of this woman, they have moved out of the mainstream of Catholicism and need to consider their souls. I wrote part two in the title, but there are several more posts of the same theme on this blog. These points hold significance for many, many people.
