 Jesus says:  "This is the Voice of the Teacher.  It roars and caresses.  It roars when it is addressed to those who do not want to be converted.  It caresses when it speaks to those who, though imperfect, have the "good will" to find God and His Word and, having found Them, to sanctify themselves.  For these it becomes the caress of a Friend and the blessing of Jesus."                  THE NOTEBOOKS 1944, Oct. 23.

     "O Holy Word!  Gift given to God's beloved, a robe of fire which You encircle with splendors, Life who become the Life of those to whom You give Yourself, may You be loved more and more with ardor and humility.

     Work in these children of Yours and of Mary, who took them as Her own at the foot of the Cross to bring comfort to Her Heart as a Mother whose adored Son was slain and to give glory to Your Divine Heart, O Most Holy Word of my Lord God.  Lead them to Your Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Your Mother, where You slept as an infant and rested when slain, where there are still drops of Your Blood and of Her motherly tears, so that the rest of their humanity will vanish on contact with them, and they, luminous in Your Light, may enter with You into the City where everything is eternal perfection and You reign and will reign, Holy Son of God, Incarnate Word of the Father."   Prayer dictated to Maria, Dec. 7.   THE NOTEBOOKS 1943

"It is Passover evening!  We have never had such a worthy display for the consumption of the lamb.  So let us consume the supper in the spirit of peace.  I see that I have upset you considerably with My instructions of these last evenings.  But, see?  I have finished!  Now I will not upset you any more.  Not everything has been said of what refers to Me, but only the essential part.  The will understand later.  You will be told... Yes.  There will come Who will tell you!"[...]  Jesus sits down.  He does not lie down.  He sits as we do.  And He says: "Now that the old rite has been accomplished, I will celebrate the new one.  I have promised you a miracle of love.  It is time to work it.  That is why I have longed for this Passover.  From now on this is the Victim that will be consumed in a perpetual rite of love.  My beloved friends, I have loved you throughout the whole life of the Earth.  I have loved you for the whole eternity, My children.  And I want to love you till the end.  There is nothing greater than this.  Bear that in mind.  I am going away.  But we shall remain for ever united through the miracle that I will now work."   Chapter 598 of Vol. 5.


Prologue to the Passion.    " And now come. Although this evening you are like one who is about to breathe his last, come, so that I may lead you towards My sufferings.  Long is the way we shall have to cover together, because I was not spared any sorrow: neither the pain of the flesh, nor the grief of the mind, of the heart, of the spirit.  I tasted all of them, I fed on all of them, I quenched My thirst with all of them, to the extent that I died of them.  If you laid your lips on Mine, you would taste the bitterness that they still retain of so much sorrow.  If you could see My Human nature in its appearance, which is now refulgent, you would see that that refulgence emanates from the countless wounds that like a garment of living purple covered My limbs, lacerated, exsanguinated, beaten, pierced for your sake.  My Human nature is now refulgent.  But one day it was like that of a leper, so fiercely it had been struck and humiliated.  The Man-God, Who had in Himself the perfection of physical handsomeness, being the Son of God and of the Immaculate Woman, to those who cast loving, curious, or scornful, or evil glances at Him, seemed a "worm", as David says, the scorn of mankind, the jest of people (Psalm 22:6)... "....  "Although you are in agony, follow Me.  As I am the Merciful One, I shall be able to put also the scented honey of more serene contemplations before your lips, poisoned by My sorrow.  But you must still prefer these ones, smeared with blood, because it is through them that you have the Life, and you will be able to take the Life to other people.  Kiss My bleeding hand and be vigilant when meditating on Me, the Redeemer."        Vol. 5, pages 520 & 522

Maria Valtorta was born on the 14th of March 1897. In the spring of 1916, 'during a tremendous period of desperation and desire', the Lord attracted her to Himself by means of a dream which was to remain 'vivid' in Maria throughout her life. But her withdrawal from the world was still remote. In 1917 Maria entered the ranks of the Samaritan Nurses, and for eighteen months offered her service at the military hospital in Florence 'to serve  those who suffered... soldiers, not officers...' she felt as if she were 'sweetly obliged to draw ever closer God'.
In 1920 an act of thoughtless violence marked the beginning of her gradual immolation: she was struck in the back by a young delinquent with an iron bar stripped from a bed. Attracted by the example of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus, Maria offered herself as victim to the merciful Love: from that moment she grew to extraordinary heights in her love of Jesus, even to feeling His presence in her own words and actions. In the meantime she matured the decision to offer herself as victim of the divine Justice.
From April 1934 she was no longer able to leave her bed...

It was in 1942 that she was visited by a pious missionary, Fr. Romuald Migliorini who was her spiritual director for four years; at his request in 1943, she agreed to write her Autobiography. Prodded by supernatural impulse on Good Friday, the 23rd of April of the same 1943, she began writing the 'dictations': her activity as writer reached intensity from 1943 to 1947, diminishing progressively until 1953.

Mostly the notebooks written by Maria Valtorta concern the life of Jesus: The Poem of the Man-God.
In 1949 Maria offered to God the sacrifice of not seeing the full ecclesiastic approval of the Work, (even though Pius XII verbally approved the work before 3 priest witnesses) and she added the precious gift of her own intelligence. She died in 1961 and in 1973 with civil and ecclesiastic permission her mortal remains were transferred to the Capitular Chapel in the Grand Cloister of the Basilica of the Most Holy Annunciation in Florence, where the tomb of Maria Valtorta is still venerated. 'The Poem of the Man-God' is a great masterpiece of the life of Jesus.  It is a gospel which neither substitutes nor changes the Gospel, but rather narrates it, integrating and illuminating it, with the declared purpose of reviving in men's hearts the love for Christ and His Mother.

It was 'revealed' to Maria Valtorta, called 'Little John', to place her close to the Evangelist who was the favourite disciple. 



     On Feb. 26, 1948, Pius XII said:  "Publish this work as it is. There is no need to give an opinion about its origin, whether it be extraordinary or not.  Who reads it will understand" *

 Antonio Socci

Below is the English translation of an Italian article written by Antonio Socci about Maria Valtorta's The Gospel As Revealed To Me (also known in English-speaking countries as The Poem of the Man-God). Antonio Socci is a leading Italian journalist, author, and public intellectual in Italy. He has his own television show, which he hosts, and is a prominent media personality, especially for topics on the Catholic Church. He has regularly held press conferences for cardinals (including Cardinal Ratzinger and Cardinal Bertone). Antonio Socci wrote an article about The Gospel as Revealed to Me / The Poem of the Man-God that was originally published in an Italian newspaper and which he also published on his blog in April, 2012. For this English translation of that article given below, we thank Catherine Loft.

A Wonderful Gift

to Our Generation:


The Gospel As Revealed To Me by Maria Valtorta


By Antonio Socci / Published April 7, 2012

It's a paradox, but modern "non-believers" seem literally fascinated by Jesus of Nazareth. Ernst Renan calls Him "a man who is incomparable, and great, to such a point that I would not feel like contradicting those who call Him God."

Another "anti-Christian" intellectual, Paul Louis Couchoud, admitted: 

"In the minds of men, in the ideal world that exists inside one's head, Jesus is immeasurable. His dimensions are beyond comparison; His level of grandeur is hardly conceivable. The history of the West – from the Roman Empire onwards – is ordered around one central fact, one event-generator: the collective representation of Jesus and of His death. Everything else came forth from that, or adapted itself to it. Everything that has been done in the West for so many centuries has been done in the gigantic shadow of the Cross." 

And so much do men greatly desire to learn more, that often writers, filmmakers, and intellectuals give free rein to their imagination in order to fabricate fables about the Gospels; to invent theories, or often lies; and maybe even to produce films, television series, or theatre – usually of a low-level – but which reap a large audience, because – as the Church says – "the whole world seeks His Face."

The Gospels, in fact, are chronicles that are rather sparse, containing the necessary and essential facts, but leaving much to the imagination. Saint John concludes his own Gospel, in fact, with this: "There are still many other things done by Jesus which, if they were written out one by one, I think that the world itself would not suffice to contain the books that would need to be written."

Well, if it is true that all would have desired to have been present there, to have seen Jesus of Nazareth – to have seen His Face, "The fairest of the sons of men" – to have listened to Him in some town's market-square, along some dusty roads ­­– to have been present at His tremendous, earth-shattering miracles; then it must be known: there exists a work – the only one of its kind in the world; the only one of its kind in history – which fulfills exactly this "impossible" desire. 

It was for our own generation that this exceptional gift was given. It is a work in ten volumes, about 5,000 pages – literally overwhelming – where is re-lived, day by day, as though broadcast live, the adventure of Jesus of Nazareth, the God-Man who overturned human history. 

It is entitled "The Gospel as it Was Revealed to Me," and its author is Maria Valtorta. 

These pages are the fruit of several years of mystical experiences, in which Jesus literally made those days of two thousand years ago come back to life again for the visionary, just as if she had been there at that time; indeed, even more so because she also sees and hears things in those days that the apostles themselves were not able to see, know, and relate (such as the entire, long path of Judas's going astray from the beginning, which was known only by Jesus, Who tried in every way and with a love unheard of, for three years, to save him). 

But who is Maria Valtorta? She was born on March 14, 1897. Beginning in 1913, the Valtorta family was living in Florence. She was an active member of Catholic Action and, during World War I, was a volunteer nurse. 

Still living in Florence, in 1920, [while walking with her mother], a revolutionary struck the back of the young woman, who happened to be there by chance, thus establishing the conditions for her subsequent immobility. 

In fact, after various painful experiences from April 1, 1934, until her death on October 12, 1961, she spent twenty-seven-and-a-half years "nailed" to her bed: a "Calvary," which she lived out with heroic faith. 

For this reason, fifty years after her death, the number of those who await the opening of her beatification process is ever increasing. Valtorta was a lady of strong character – greatly reasonable and practical, in no way inclined towards fantastical suggestions – who never desired nor sought after mystical experiences.

The supernatural phenomena began in 1943, just when she thought she would not make it anymore and was close to death. On the morning of April 23, Good Friday, Jesus entered into her life and began daily supernatural visits to her, made by means ​​of interior locutions, visions, and dictations, which bound Maria – already suffering on that bed – to an enormous transcription project: approximately fifteen thousand handwritten pages. 

Specifically, the primary work is called, "The Gospel as It Was Revealed to Me" [originally printed in English as "The Poem of the Man-God"]. From 1944 to 1947 – by means of many successive visions – Maria Valtorta re-lived the whole history of Jesus, relating every episode and even describing smells and the wind. 

These are exceptional pages, which practically contain all four Gospels and fill in missing periods, solving so many enigmatic points or apparent contradictions. 

Reading these pages is not only an extraordinary adventure for the mind since it reveals everything you would want to know and illuminates every truth, but it also changes your heart and changes your life.

Above all, it confirms the veracity of all the dogmas and teachings of the Church, of St. John, St. Paul, and of all the Councils. 

For twenty years, after having laboriously stumbled through trying to read hundreds of biblical scholars' volumes, I can say thatwith the reading of the Work of Valtorta – two hundred years of Enlightenment-based, idealistic, and modernist chatter about the Gospels and about the Life of Jesus can be run through the shredder. 

And this perhaps is one of the reasons why this exceptional work – a work which moved even Pius XII – is still ignored and "repressed" by the official intelligentsia and by clerical modernism.

In spite of that, outside the normal channels of distribution, thanks to Emilio Pisani and Centro Editoriale Valtortiano, the Work has been read by a sea of people – every year, by tens of thousands of new readers – and has been translated into 21 languages. 

A renowned Biblical scholar, [Blessed] Gabriel Allegra, has described it as "a masterpiece of world-wide Christian literature." He also wrote about the "astonishing Scriptural knowledge" of the author who had never studied theology and who only had at her disposal an older, common version of the Bible.

Also significantly emblematic is the judgment which was expressed in 1952 by the Jesuit, Father Augustine Bea, an authority in the field of exegesis, as the Rector of the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome, (where, several years later, Carlo Maria Martini succeeded him). 

Bea was also a prominent personage of the Church because, after having been the confessor of Pope Pius XII, he became a cardinal and was one of the main protagonists of the Second Vatican Council. 

Thus, in 1952, he wrote that he had examined an extract of the Work, "…paying particular attention in my reading to the exegetical, historical, archeological, and topographical parts."

Here is his judgment: "As regards its exegesis, in none of the records I examined have I found errors of any relevance. I was, moreover, very impressed by the fact that the archeological and topographical descriptions were propounded with remarkable exactness."

All this is humanly inexplicable. 

In Maria Valtorta's Work is found a reconstruction that is so accurate and rich in historical, geographical, and human facts about the Public Life of Jesus, that it is impossible to explain – especially if one considers that it came forth from the pen of a woman who was ignorant of these subjects and of theology, who was not familiar with the Holy Land, and who did not have any books to consult, lying sick and immobilized on a bed in Viareggio, on the Gothic Line, during the war's most ferocious months. 

There are thousands of pages, overflowing with information and with the loftiest reflections and meditations; with geographical descriptions which only today, by going onsite, would be able to be done.

There are hundreds of topographical names and details and of descriptions of places, which were unknown to everyone and which only the latest research and archaeological excavations have brought to light. Maria Valtorta's Work is, in truth, inexplicable by merely human means. Even the literary style is very lofty and profound. 

But above all, the Giant – Who runs through these pages and Who fascinates by means of power, goodness, and beauty; Who inspires, by means of words and actions – is precisely that Jesus of Nazareth of Whom the Gospels speak. The world had not seen – nor will ever see – anything comparable. 

 Originally published in "Libero", this has been translated from the original Italian by Catherine Loft.

The Virgin Mary in the Writings of Maria Valtorta
by Fr. Gabriel M. Roschini, OSM (1900-1977)

This is an account of the life of The Virgin Mary to edify those who wish to better know their Heavenly Mother in her historical daily life as well as in her extraordinary mystical life.

Renowned mariologist Roschini said:

"Maria Valtorta of Viareggio, Italy, is one of the eighteen greatest female Marian mystics of all time."

"..the Mariology found in all of Maria Valtorta's writings--both published and unpublished--has been a real discovery for me.  No other Marian writings, not even the sum total of everything I have read and studied, were able to give me as clear, as vivid, as complete, as luminous, or as fascinating an image, both simple and sublime, of Mary, God's Masterpiece."

"Peter’s tomb is not in the Vatican"

Vatican City


   This is according to one of the visions experienced by mystic Maria Valtorta and recorded in the latest book by Catholic writer and journalist, Antonio Socci


(Vatican City)

St. Peter is not where we think he is. During the Second World War, the mystic, Maria Valtorta, recounted what Jesus had allowed her to “see”: Peter was never buried on the Vatican Hill, the place of his martyrdom. His remains were actually buried and looked after by Christians in what are known today as the catacombs of Ss. Marcellinus and Peter in Via Casilina in Rome. The mystic also warned Pius XII of the “black legend” that was to strike down upon him for having kept silent about the Holocaust. “In a dictate dated December 1943, Jesus urges Pius XII to publicly denounce the Nazi antichrist and the Jewish genocide, accepting his consequent martyrdom. In order to avoid being accused of connivance in the future. Which is precisely what happened.”

 The prophetic warning (of which Pope Pacelli was informed in December 1943 when no one knew about the Holocaust yet) given by the Viareggian mystic, Maria Valtorta, is revealed in the latest work by Italian author and journalist, Antonio Socci, entitled “I giorni della tempesta” (Stormy days) published by Rizzoli. The book is a metaphysical mystery set in 2015, that revolves around the conclave, criminal plots and the persecution of the Church. The themes and characters are all current. The story unfolds around a pope’s death and the beginning of a Conclave. “To me, the sede vacante period represents uncertainty and general confusion,” Socci explained to Vatican Insider. It is partly a metaphor of our times, of the world and of the Church. During the suspense-filled moments of the sede vacante period, armed with faith and having listened to Valtorta’s explosive revelations some daring individuals begin a race against time to find the real tomb and body of St. Peter, in the Torpignattara catacomb. This represents the search for an enlightening, protective and guiding fatherly presence that can ward off a looming catastrophe. Above all for the Church (Peter represents a rediscovery of its origins), but also for the history of all humankind, which is searching for the meaning of life and for the world’s shady and turbulent history.”

 Socci then went on to add: “I sincerely hope that this book will contribute to the discovery made in Maria Valtorta’s work, particularly in "L'Evangelo come mi è stato rivelato"  (THE GOSPEL AS REVEALED TO ME) Socci said he hoped “archaeological research would finally begin in the catacombs of Ss. Marcellinus and Peter, which have recently revealed some big surprises. If the tomb of the prince of the Apostles really was discovered there, it would probably be the biggest archaeological find in the history of Christianity.”

 The most intense parts of the book deal with the difficult Second World War period. Mystic, Maria Valtorta, claims that communism and Nazism were part of one single satanic force despite appearing separate: “Jesus stresses that it is not a conflict of ideologies. This is a battle between Heaven and hell. Hidden behind the smokescreen of race, hegemony and rights and behind the motive of political necessity, are in fact Heaven and hell, engaged in a fight between one another. This is one of the first selection tests humanity has to go through as its final hour approaches.” “As such, it invites Christians to testify the truth until martyrdom. This goes for the Pope as well.” And on 24 June 1943, Pope Pius XII is added to the list of innocent victims.

 Meanwhile, word had got round in the Vatican about Maria Valtorta’s visions of St. Peter’s death and burial. Indeed, archaeological excavations underneath the altar of the Confession in St. Peter’s Basilica have continued for ten years now. They began during attempts to create a burial site for Pius XI and continued in order to look for traces of the apostle’s grave and possibly his body’s remains. In another conversation with the Viareggian mystic, Jesus said to her: “How you have changed since the times of the early Christians who did not consider anything human but only looked up to Heaven! It is true that I said you must be prudent as serpents, but not humanly prudent. I also told you that in order to follow Me you have to be bold. You have to fight against self love; against power when it pursues you, because you are my followers” and also “because only one thing is necessary: to save one’s soul, even if it means losing life in the flesh in order to achieve eternal Life.”

 During the Second World War, Jesus urged humanity to follow the example of the early martyrs. On 29 February 1944, he said the following regarding the witnesses of Jesus’ faith: “They were dying and their dying broke down the wall of paganism. The blood which flowed out of the myriads of wounds caused the walls of paganism to crumble, spilling all over Cesar’s militia, Cesar’s palace, circuses and baths. Rome’s soil is steeped in this blood and the city rises and one could say it is cemented with the blood and dust of my martyrs. The few hundreds of martyrs you know are nothing compared to the thousands that lie buried in the bowels of Rome and all those who were burnt at the stake, their cinders blown away by the wind, or those who were torn to pieces or swallowed up by beasts and reptiles, turning into excrement that was brushed and thrown away like common manure.” “Their complete annihilation, right down to the skeleton, is what fertilised the wild soil of the pagan world, more than any manure, preparing it to receive the Grain of Heaven.”
