Devotions for dating divorced couples remarrying radiocarbon dating holocene

In my November of 2009 article, I said, “Despite all the usual Catholic trappings — chapel, statues, rosaries and religious bookstore, not to mention the throngs from across the country and globe — the purported visions by Maureen Sweeney-Kyle have been condemned.” Although the word “condemned” is the old term for a private revelation that received the “” judgment and my readers may have been better served by my simply reporting what the bishop said, the point remains: The conclusion of the bishop’s evaluation is that if there are any apparitions going on there, they .

Actual apparitions (as distinguished from hallucinations or other psychological phenomena) can only be from one of two sources: God (supernatural) or an influence of the devil (demonic, preternatural).

I am writing again about Holy Love because some followers contacted me regarding my article of 11/20/09 (reproduced below), “Proclamation on Holy Love Will Test Hearts and Obedience”. emailed me last summer and we had a back and forth debate on the authenticity of the apparitions.

When in the history of the Catholic Church has the Blessed Mother operated outside the Church?

When has Jesus rejected His own authority — that of the Catholic Church?

We are sorry that the bishop has taken this position.
