Thanks Gary. That’s the one I looked at. There is only one on the list that has been disapproved on both counts…which is a mystery to me as if it is found “negative” on the supernatural occurances, why does the RC still approve it on the “faith expression & devotion”?
Anyway, I did not check those out, only the one that is definitely declared a hoax. and that one was disappointing as to how the RC handled it.
They wanted to clean it up a little.
…Archbishop Michael Neary investigated Mrs. Gallagher and declared her “charism” contained no evidence of miracles or supernatural intervention. He did, nonetheless, **allow the House of Prayer to continue. **Fruits were good in terms of prayer and money for the Island. ,
“Personally I don’t believe in such things, but whether Christina Gallagher really does work miracles doesn’t matter to most of us on this island. She has saved the island from dying. She has brought us jobs where they never existed and to us locals that’s all that matters.” said Katherine McHugh, a local on the Island.
Archbishop Neary’s secretary, Father Brendan Kilcoyne, said that His Excellency wanted to bring the House of Prayer closer to the structure of the Church… although he discovered no evidence of the supernatural, he graciously allowed the center to stay open.
The “house of prayer” closed because Galliger didn’t want to cooperate with the church. She closed it herself and moved elsewhere.
It leaves a bad impression of the motives of the RC. Not saying that is true, just saying that is the appearance it gives.
