Our Lady of America apparitions declared "not supernatural"

While saying such experiences were “authentically graced moments,” the six bishops who investigated the supposed apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1953 said that they were “subjective ones in which her own imagination and intellect were constitutively engaged,” not “objective visions and revelations of the type seen at Guadalupe, Fatima, and Lourdes.”
While private devotion inspired by reports of the apparitions could continue without harm to the faith, Bishop Rhoades said, it would not be appropriate for any sort of public devotion.
