Taylor Marshall claimed in a video on youtube on March 6, that he had a sort of vision about the church. Marshall is a former Episcopalian priest who converted to Catholicism, has a Ph.D. in philosophy and is a father of eight children. Marshall described that he was doing an examination of conscience before bed then “suddenly I saw this beautiful woman” he discerned as Mother Church.

It seems to me Taylor Marshall is describing something that was (perhaps) actual grace for him and may also be for others having difficulty handling the mess we are in. The particular description that I would be interested to hear others' opinion about is "Mother Church" being prevented from feeding her children. It would imply that the problems and the trouble-makers we see are literally …More
It seems to me Taylor Marshall is describing something that was (perhaps) actual grace for him and may also be for others having difficulty handling the mess we are in. The particular description that I would be interested to hear others' opinion about is "Mother Church" being prevented from feeding her children. It would imply that the problems and the trouble-makers we see are literally stopping...stopping what? actual grace? supernatural grace? I wonder what he would say.

The biggest problem I see with those I know who are either ignoring or having difficulty with the challenges in the Church right now is not much more than too great an interest in ease; not wanting to acknowledge there will be troubles in this life.

It seems to be a sort of "image" coming to his mind. This is not to be confused with visions like Knock, Ireland, where the environment was visible affected.

Here is the text:

I was doing an examination of conscience before bed. and I was thinking on that point of being worried… about the Holy Catholic Church, Mother Church."

And as I was, suddenly I saw this beautiful woman. She had blond hair, she was perfect, no wrinkles, no spots, and I immediately discerned that this was Holy Mother the Church.

Here is the text:

I was doing an examination of conscience before bed. and I was thinking on that point of being worried… about the Holy Catholic Church, Mother Church."

And as I was, suddenly I saw this beautiful woman. She had blond hair, she was perfect, no wrinkles, no spots, and I immediately discerned that this was Holy Mother the Church.

And she was writhing in pain. She was in a bed, there were sheets on her, and she was very sick. And I noticed that her breasts were engorged with milk, tons of milk. And there were babies and children crying out to her that were hungry. And she wanted to feed them, and she was upset, but she was so sick she could hardly sit up from her bed.

And then I thought to myself, ‘Oh she’s poisoned, she doesn’t want to nurse the children because then she’ll give them the poison.’ And then there was this voice, it was like God or an angel, I don’t know, and it said, ‘No, the milk is still pure.‘
“And so I saw her there in all of her beauty, but so sick and struggling and loving those children and seeing all that milk stored up there. And I realized that the sacramental graces, the dogma, the doctrine, the morality, all of that in the Church is pure.

There’s poison in the Church, the Church is hurting, there’s always been some poison in the Church. And Mother Church still loves us and Mother Church still wants to give us milk, and she will, but it’s a difficult time. But the milk is pure. The sacramental graces of Holy Mother Church is pure. She’s still beautiful, she’s still immaculate, there’s still nothing sinful, wrong, or broken with Mother Church. But there has been introduced something into her that is poisonous, and so she’s struggling a little bit.

So we just need to love Mother Church, and we need to be fed by Mother Church, and be patient, and know that any incorruption that enters the Church does not affect the milk flow. The nutrition that Mother Church gives us is always pure, it’s always unadulterated, we can always trust that until the end of time.

Hope that’s a comfort to you as it was for me. God bless, bye.”

So... What do people think about this?

It sounds like the Organic style of visual metaphor that Hildegard of Bingen had.
