LORNA BYRNE - ANGELS IN MY HAIR
LORNA - TOUCHED IN THE HEAD BY AN ANGEL

Popular Lorna Byrne is an irritatingly sweet "Catholic" lady who claims to have constant visions of angels. She produced a book called Angels in my Hair.

 

She is in fact a manipulator who has stolen her place on the Roman Catholic bandwagon. She exploits Catholics who do not understand their own religion.
Catholicism believes in praying to and venerating the angels. The Bible however does not teach that God's angels are saintly and good. The book of Tobit says the angel Raphael told lies. The Book of Revelation has Jesus giving revelations to the angels of the Church of say Sardis and giving out about its sins. "To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead." The angel is blamed for the condition of the members of the Church. That is why the angel is chastised as their representative.

7 “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.
This text about the false Jews having to fall at the feet of the angel shows it is literal. All the text says is that they will bow before the angel to admit that Jesus loves him. It does not imply any veneration for the angel.

The Church thinks the angels here stand for the Church in different areas but it can be taken literally and therefore it should be. The Church is merely speculating. And there is the episode where an angel fought Jacob all night. The dallying with angels and invoking of them is just Spiritualism. It is occult and the Bible God is sternly opposed to it.

Lorna told the Huffington Post, "In the years following, the angels explained to me that different religions have different beliefs, different traditions and different ways of praying. They always emphasized, however, that it was one and the same God that while religions are different one is not superior to another, and that one day all religions would come together under one umbrella. I see angels in every place of prayer regardless of religion. No one ever prays alone, I see angels at prayer with everyone, even if one is simply saying a short prayer while waiting for the bus. The angels have told me that when people of different religions come together to pray with an open heart and mind, not wishing to convert or defend, but simply to praise God and talk about him, then the power of their prayer is magnified. "

People say about how nice and sincere she is and that she does not care if people believe her or not. Its easy for her to give the impression that she doesn't care when she has her fanbase of fanatical believers. The woman is proof that the religious claim: "We believe in miracles because good and sincere people said they experienced them and it seems they were not lying" is mistaken and useless. Miracle believers only care about what they want to believe.

While it is sectarian for a man-made religion to boast that it is better than other religions, all religions cannot be as good as one another. The suggestion that angels do not like people who come together to find converts is in clear contradiction to Christ who commanded that all nations must be brought into discipleship.

Lorna Byrne was interviewed on BBC1 March 2012 during the Big Questions.

What evidence does she have to give that she is really seeing the visions of angels she reports? Why not believe just anybody making similar claims? If you are a cancer patient, why not believe in a supposed angel that tells you not to get medical help any more? Where is the line to be drawn? Do we want half the nation becoming Lorna Byrnes? If we accept her claims then we should want it.

The Catholic Church only accepts apparition claims after a ruthless theological and scientific examination of the evidence. Lorna does not respect Church authority for she says her visions and messages are really from Heaven. It is up to the Church to decide that. She doesn't even have a theology degree so she has no right. Has she presented her story to her local bishop? The bishop as the representative of the apostles has a duty to demand that no cult be established without being closely monitored by the diocese. His job is to ensure that true doctrine is protected from contamination as Jesus warned that unless we believe correctly and sincerely we will not enter the kingdom of God.

It is so easy for people to be misled. If I had visions and messages and were a true Catholic, I would keep it to myself where possible and not encourage people to believe. I would go and see the bishop and only speak publicly about the visions and revelations after checking with him first. Lorna is not encouraged to do this by her angels so they are really either from her imagination or from a non-heavenly source. She is not the caring person she appears to be but encouraging credulity and making the unbelievers howl with derision at the Church. Lorna admits that she does not go to Mass every week.

Her angels tell her that the Church has erred in its teaching. Angels are a New Age fad. The New Agers have angels that the Church has never established devotion to such as Uriel. Its really a case of people who are not believers cloaking their fairy-tales in Christianity to deceive the Christian market.

Believers in these New Age angels tend to stress the angels for the angels own sake. This contradicts the Catholic teaching that saints and angels are to be honoured only as friends and creations and revealers of God - meaning that it is really God who is being honoured.

Her book Angels in My Hair never mentions Jesus or the Holy Spirit.

She contradicts the Catholic doctrine that we do not choose our lives on earth for our lives begin at conception . For us to have a choice, we would need to exist before conception.;

The contradicts the Catholic teaching that the Catholic Church is the one true Church. For her, it doesn't matter what religion you belong to. This despite the hypocrisy of her claim to be a voice for the angels. Are we to believe that it doesn't matter if the angels speak to a religion or not?
She talks to dead people and ghosts - the sin of necromancy. She was able to become one person with her dead brother.

Her God insults those who people have hurt very badly by forgiving all as if their sin didn't matter.

Page 167 reveals her shocking claim that the baby in its mother's womb consents if she chooses to have an abortion! For Catholics she is soft-pedalling abortion which is seen as murder and a grave sin.

She even prayed in a Born Again Christian Prayer Group on the advice of the Archangel Michael.

Page 173 states that she knows there is a place called Hell but she has no indication that there is anybody actually in Hell. She says then that God forgives everybody implying that he has made a place of punishment that nobody can go to for he intends to forgive them and let them off the hook. Smart God!
She puts her utterances above better verified visions (I am only saying they are better verified not that they are believable!) such as Fatima where the Virgin Mary reportedly appeared and said, "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart." Why go to all that trouble if nobody goes to Hell?

Knowledgeable Catholics see her as New Age.

ANGELS OF LOVE HELP GAY COUPLES AS WELL

I sometimes see angels of love with homosexual couples. Not long ago, I saw angels of love around two young men as they walked down the street. They weren’t holding hands or anything like that, but the angels of love with them told me they were partners and very happy. It was lovely to see.

Some people find it hard to accept that God and the angels could approve of romantic love between two men or two women. All I can say is that I see angels of love with such couples often.

Blessings to you, your families and loved ones.
Lorna
