Once again, mysticism and the occult raise their heads in the “church.” My sense is that she is not channeling Padre Pio...but someone else...if the Scriptures are to be believed!

Sorry, pal. But there's nothing "in the Church" about what this individual is doing. In fact, she's specifically violating very clear Church teaching.

This is not mysticism. This woman is practicing New Age fluff and needs to be shut down by her pastor and bishop. It is deception and a false understanding of the higher unseen realms.

Mysticism is the valid path to union with God, aka mystical union. The Orthodox have their own term, theosis if I understand correctly.

Read ‘The Spiritual Life’ by Fr. Adolphe Tanquerey or ‘The Three Ages of the Interior Life’ by Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange.
