Wow. This is really something. I can't comment to any great extent because I feel like the whole thing was a huge invasion of privacy to her. I do see that it will only strengthen most who believed she was and is a saint in Heaven to remain faithful even in the face of spiritual dryness and encourage us to help the poor and downtrodden even if it means that the more we see Jesus in each other, the less we may see the actual Jesus working in our lives or hear his voice.
Isn't that what he wanted? That we be Jesus to each other?
I don't care what that Christopher Hitchens says, that lady had such a deep faith, like the Amazonian jungle natives who have never been introduced to Christ...it's just that she didn't know it. That doesn't mean she couldn't end up in Heaven, or that Jesus lost love for her, or really doesn't exist!
P.S. I just published a post under the one about Scott Hahn that I had drafted a few days ago. If you want to check it out scroll down a little.
