Hello everyone, this is my first post, please excuse any mistakes I make. Thx.
I am currently being, I suppose, “targeted” by a group of other Catholics who are trying to convert me to a literal view of the first chapters of Genesis. They are nice people, and this is not rancorous at all. I’m enjoying the debate.
My question concerns the materials they are providing to me. They are from the Kolbe Center. I am making a list of all of the things in the books that are troublesome to me, and perhaps I would like to post some of my concerns here, however today I have a different question.
The books do not appear to possess an imprimatur, not any imprint from a censor. This book, The Doctrines of Genesis, is the one I’m working through at the moment. It has a foreward by a Bishop, Rev. Robert Francis Vasa…but not his imprimatur (as far as I can tell). In the foreward, the Bishop really brags on the book and its author.
So…can anyone tell me why no imprimatur? Or anything more about the author, Fr. Victor Warkulwiz? He’s a member of the Missionary Priests of the Blessed Sacrament and National Director of the Apostolate for Perpetual Adoration in the United States, and has a degree in physics from Temple.
Any other info is appreciated. Thanks!
