Hi, I don't know if you have found your answer, but here is a good link from the Medjugorje.
God Bless and welcome home.
The forum rules do not allow the promotion of unapproved apparitions, this includes posting links to websites devoted to them.
This examination has some inaccuracies which would lead me to not recommend it.
7 & 10. You shall not steal and You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.
1) "Have I tithed ten percent of my income, five percent to the parish and five percent to another charity?". The Church has never required us to tithe, and certainly not 10% of our income. We are to support the parish and give to charity, but the amount is something we each should prayerfully consider individually. Not giving 10% is not a sin, and never has been. 2) "Have I volunteered my time for either the parish or the poor?" Again, here is another inaccuracy. The Church has never said we must volunteer time to the parish or poor. There may be a number of legitimate reasons for someone to be unable to do either, at least on a regular basis, due to family and/or work constraints. They may only be able to give time a few times a year, but assist in other ways. Failure to do either is not a sin. We should assist the parish and the poor regularly, but it need not always be our time; it can be an offering of a talent, or funds.
The one that YoungTradCath posted, while thorough and perhaps to be avoided by the scrupulous, doesn't contain any inaccuracies. This one states:
Seventh & Tenth Commandments 1) "Given generously to others in need? " without stating a tithe, and...
Sixth Precept of the Church
2) "Contributed a just amount of my time, talents and money to support my parish and the work of the Church? " which requires us to contribute according to our means. One may not be capable of volunteering time regularly, a just amount might be several times a year for someone.
Apparently not every examination out there on the world wide web is an accurate and good one. The one posted by YoungTradCath is accurate and good, the one on the website devoted to the promotion of an unapproved apparition is not (for the reasons I state above).
