I checked the “banned topics” list and I guess they’ve taken this off. But the they’re still locking topics on unapproved apparations, so please don’t turn this into an “I saw Mary” or “Who wants to go to Medjugorje with me?” thread.
Moderators, if we’re not supposed to be discussing this, I apologize, and feel free to lock the thread.
I want to know if someone can explain to me how the church approves apparations and what it means when they’re approved.
When Bernadette or the kids at Fatima or someone, when someone sees Mary, what are they supposed to do? Who do they tell?
Then what happens?
How is it approved?
What does the approval mean?
Does this infringe on the church being “apostolic,” that is, keeping strictly to the teachings of the apostles?
