Venezuelan seer Maria Esperanza, widely viewed as one of the world’s foremost mystics, warns that human cloning is a “mortal sin” and urged prayer to prevent what she sees as looming disasters if humankind doesn’t grow closer to God.
It was her second major admonishment in the past year.
“That’s a sin, a mortal sin,” Maria replied when asked about cloning. “The only one who has that right is God. It’s not going to have a good end, definitely. It’s horrible. It is evil, the devil who is inspiring them. The devil now wants to confront God straight, ‘man to man,’ through human minds. It’s grave. We must pray for this a lot. It will bring a lot of scandal and suffering to the world.”
Esperanza, whose apparitions at Betania have been approved by the official Church, says the move toward cloning will cause great division and besides natural disasters will bring war. Just last fall the seer, a “spiritual daughter” of famed Italian priest Padre Pio, warned that the world was approaching a time of great military tension, with two nations (one large, one small) conspiring against the U.S. — a prophecy followed almost immediately by news that the Russian leader was visiting Cuba and then by word that the Chinese were supplying arms to Iraq.
