I can understand a holy person bilocating to save souls or spread The Word, but I wonder why souls in trouble would need to bilocate?
I read this in the Holy Fathers recent writings, but failed to retrieve it. I found something in this link explaining a bit better of extraordinary gifts of grace.
- Special gifts of the Holy Spirit
The grace of the Spirit can also endow us with spiritual gifts called charisms. St. Paul tells us that these gifts take many forms such as ministry, a teacher of doctrine, prophecy, service, and zeal. Sometimes the gifts are extraordinary and miraculous, such as the gift of miracles or speaking in tongues. It is important to realize however that these gifts are meant not for the glorification of the recipient, but for the common good and service of the Church. The extraordinary gifts of tongues, miracles, interpreter of tongues and healing are not granted to all the members of the Church, but to certain individuals as decided on by the Holy Spirit. Such gifts are ordered to strengthening the faith of the Church and are oriented towards sanctifying grace.*
So lets say as an intervention, someone has an extraordinary experience and seeks answers for such. At some point the Church may get involved in some form or another. This may be far fetched, but the possibilty's are beyond me. Hope this helps a bit. Tim
