Le fonti scelte according to ottenere un corretto punto di vista sono los angeles Commedia dantesca, nella quale al genio poetico troviamo unito il sapore dell'esperienza soprannaturale, los angeles ragione metafisica condotta secondo l'argomentazione rigorosa e asettica di san Tommaso, e il racconto di Maria Valtorta, che ha trovato in personaggi autorevolissimi della Chiesa grandi ammiratori del suo afflato mistico e pesanti denigratori, ma che si sta rivelando sempre più una fonte attendibile e uno strumento di conversione. Da questo fecondo incrocio dovrebbe risultare un punto di vista equilibrato, in linea con il magistero della Chiesa e los angeles più genuina tradizione, a partire dalla grande riflessione dei Padri. Alla donna contemporanea che sembra aver smarrito los angeles propria identità, Maria ricorda il coraggio del dono e los angeles bellezza dell'eroismo, al credente disorientato dal bombardamento di tante voci contrastanti in questa high-quality dei tempi, Maria può ridare l. a. forza di ritornare al Figlio Dio e Salvatore.
