Product Description

“The process by which these supernatural events are authenticated is expertly told by John Thavis, one of the world’s leading Vaticanologists. In fact, that a book on so secretive and complex a topic is so deeply researched, beautifully written, and artfully told is something of a small miracle itself.”—James Martin, S.J., author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Vatican Diaries, a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how the Vatican investigates claims of miraculous events

Apocalyptic prophesies and miraculous apparitions are headline-grabbing phenomena that frequently clash with the Catholic Church's definition of "rational faith" and the zeal of its more fanatical followers. These assertions appear to some to be ludicrous. Others consider them as proof of a personal relationship with God. The situation is significantly more difficult for the Vatican, as any alleged miraculous event might have serious theological and political ramifications. As a result, the Vatican has created a very clandestine and sophisticated examination mechanism to determine the veracity of supernatural experiences.

Former journalist John Thavis draws on his thirty years of Vatican coverage to shed light on this little-known process, revealing serious internal arguments over the power of sacred relics, private revelations, exorcisms, and more. The book, which is both enlightening and appealing to Catholics and non-Catholics alike, depicts the Church's attempt to strike a balance between traditional beliefs and current skepticism.
