Many other writings were wrongly condemned and placed on the Index of forbidden books list. Such as Galileo (the Church believed the world was flat and the entire Universe orbited the earth), Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint Faustina Kowalska, Saint Joan of Arc, etc. Saint Faustina’s writings are very relevant because they were condemned by the Holy Office at the same time as Maria Valtorta’s. Both condemnations were signed Simultaneously by Pope John XXIII as he took office, at the insistence of the Holy Office under Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani. Saint Faustina's Divine Mercy writings were never officially unrestricted, but are now cherished by many after her Beatification and Canonization. Saint Faustina tells us that the hour of Divine Mercy is 3:00 pm, the hour Jesus died for our sins. Jesus told her: "You can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My Passion".
Consider setting your watch alarm for 3:00pm. Try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour. Immerse yourself in prayer, even if your duties permit only a brief instant. After honoring Jesus for the Agony of his Passion, pray the following:
"Lord Jesus and Mary full of Grace, at this hour of Divine Mercy, I ask You in virtue of Your Passion and Co-Passion for the Beatification and Canonization of Maria Valtorta. I ask that You see to it that her writings be freely propagated and read throughout the world. And I ask that You overcome all obstacles obstructing these requests. I ask this of You, in virtue of Your Passion and Co-Passion, and within this hour of 3:00, the hour of Divine Mercy, the hour in which Jesus told Saint Faustina that He would refuse no request of a soul that asks. Thank You and Bless You, Amen."

Oh how we must pray for Fr. Mitch from EWTN for his error!
Lord, please forgive those shepards that have power to lead the flocks to your Sacred Heart! Please Lord Jesus by the Love that you have for your Blessed Mother and all of the Angels and Saints, INSPIRE your Church to remove the Enigma that points to the Truth. It is so painful to see that the most eloquent of writings that literally take ones Spirit outside of time, to the richness of your life, death and resurrection here on earth through the Poem, cannot be found in ANY library, although provocative filth pervades the media and internet. It seems insane, absurdity the lies of the enemy. If the enemy appeared as the world recognizes him in the lies of the media, he would be easy to point out, but the Serpent is insidious. St. Michael confronted him by saying "May the Lord rebuke thee", Jesus saw him cast from heaven as a flash of lightning. When oh, when will your Justice be revealed to the nations? Give the world a chance to read the Poem oh Lord? We come with confidence to you oh, Lord Jesus and beg your Mercy, that Mercy and Love that flourishes in the Blessed Sacrament on the Altar, through Holy and Divine Love. Please come to the aid and promote this work in honor of your Majestic and Holy Name!
