I think it’s unfortunate. I wasn’t super devoted these apparitons, but I was a little. I bought some prayer cards. Fortunately, there is no absolute prohibition to this devotion. I am a little confused about the language of the report. The apparitions weren’t delusions, or a hoax, or genuine visions; but rather “subjective inner religious experiences rather than objective external visions and revelations… her experiences were of a type where her own imagination and intellect were involved in the formation of the events. It seems that these were authentically graced moments, even perhaps of a spiritual quality beyond what most people experience, but subjective ones in which her own imagination and intellect were constitutively engaged, putting form to inner spiritual movements.”
I’m not sure what that even means, but won’t dispute the bishops’ findings.
Anyways, is anyone here familiar with Our Lady of America? I’ve always thought, and still think, that the messages were very edifying.
