I hope that those who say that the Beatific Vision cannot be given by God to those who are still living on earth especially to the Blessed Virgin, be not hasty in forming conclusions lest you commit grave mistakes. Moses is holy but he is conceived in original sin, the only creature who is not is Mary. We must also remember that The Mystical City of God was examined very carefully on the subject of Faith and Morals before the Holy Mother Church gave her approbation through her leaders. I will quote a passage from the updated Wikipedia:
“As soon as the book appeared in print after Venerable Mary’s death on May 24,1665, the Spanish Inquisition scrutinized it for fourteen years (!) and,finding nothing contrary to faith or morals, allowed the books to be read (Carrico, 86). Lest one will think the Spanish Tribunal was prejudiced in favor of the Spanish nun claiming revelations, but certainly the opposite was true, since in that epoch of Spanish history false mystics were numerous, this being, in fact, a primary reason the Inquisition was revived, not excepting even the great St. Teresa of Avila from its scrutiny.”
And another quote from one of the approbations that can be found inside the Book itself. This one is of His Excellency, Franz Albert, Archbishop of Salzburg and Primate of Germany, to testify what one of the most learned men of his time said (Conception, p. xxii-emphasis of Tim Duff of Daily Catholic):
“The learned and pious Cardinal D’Aguirre says that he considers all the studies of fifty years of his previous life as of small consequence in comparison with the doctrines he found in this book, which in all things are in harmony with the Holy Scriptures, the Holy Fathers and Councils of the Church.”
Are we so proud then as to think that we can think better than these holy learned men?
