Canon 66: “The Christian economy, therefore, since it is the new and definitive Covenant, will never pass away; and no new public revelation is to be expected before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Yet even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made completely explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries.
Canon 67: Throughout the ages, there have been so-called “private” revelations, some of which have been recognised by the authority of the Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ’s definitive Revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by the Magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium knows how to discern and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to the Church.
Christian faith cannot accept “revelations” that claim to surpass or correct the Revelation of which Christ is the fulfilment, as is the case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such “revelations.”
Let us illustrate the above with an example:
The Holy Bible tells us of Adam and Eve (Genesis) , and that Woman was born of Adam’s rib. The revelations received by Fr. Guido Bortoluzzi (1907 and died in 1991) between 1968 -1974 clarified the events that took place in Eden. Today, we know that God put Adam to sleep, and whilst Adam was asleep, God guided him to have intercourse with Eve ( who was an ape with 47 chromosomes and therefore capable of breeding with human beings and with apes) in whose womb God had already placed a female Gamete and so Woman was born. a thousand years ago, we, as a race would not have understood this process because we did not yet know what surrogacy was. Now , we are mature enough, scientifically, to understnad these truths. This, to illustrate, is one of the purposes of modern day revelation.
