The Roman Catholic Church counts on the whole 23 dogmas: twelve are included in the symbol of the apostles and eleven have been defined by the Church. The last is that of the Assumption - 1950. The Virgin Mary, in her appearances in Amsterdam at the Netherlands, 1945 to 1984, prophesied however that a last "final dogma of Mary" would be adopted by the Catholic Church that would proclaim her "Co-Redeemer, Mediator and Advocate", which would summarize and explains the theology of Mary and "would crown" Our Lady.

The Cabalists affirm that, in the present times, a letter is missing in the Torah. This letter of the alphabet does not appear at all in our "eon" and also is not used in the Torah. The primitive divine alphabet and all the Torah also would base on a series of 23 letters, and not 22, which one is become invisible for us and will reappear only during a next terrestrial period. And it is only because this letter misses now everywhere that we read in the Torah the positive and negative precepts. Each negative aspect is in relation with this missing letter of the primitive alphabet.
