Let me say from the outset that I am not a bible scholar. We must distinguish between Revelation and Tradition. Tradition is all that came from the mouth of Christ and which has been handed down to us from the Apostles. It also includes the Bible. Tradition ends with the death of the last Apostle. Revelation came to us in the Old Testament and culminated at Pentecost with the Holy Spirit being the Life of Christ's Church. Revelation was complete at Pentecost; there can be no new Revelation. That which comes to us from mystics I prefer to term Illumination which means our understanding of Revelation grows and deepens. This Revelation can also be described as the Deposit of Faith. It is only in the last 100 years or so that Dogmas such as the Assumption and Immaculate Clonception have been defined but the Church had piously believed this from the early days: "sensus fidelium". Our understanding deepened of these truths. I will be putting in print how I see things and hope that others in the future will further my points. But I hold what the Church has always taught and only look to a deeper understanding. These are the times we live in! The text used is that of the Douay Rheims Bible. Obviously this is a huge task of which I will probably accomplish little!
