The most important visionary in history Sr. Lucia is not a saint by the way. Also Sr. Lucia had apparitions for almost 70 years. Most people are unaware of that.
The article was so bad I was not going to comment and I certainly was not going to have it on Mystic Post.But...
The skeptics miss the most important point.
1. The Apparition of the Blessed Mother experienced by the six visionaries occurred and have been voted to be supernatural in nature by the committee members. This point cannot be overemphasized -
2. Regarding the remaining apparitions, the Vatican is simply taking a wait and see additude. If they were troubled by the ongoing events or felt they were fraudulent they would condemn in a minute. The secrets are still out there . It is impossible to accept the current events as "authentic". This idea that 99.9% of the apparitions are false is not a logical interpretation of what the committee is actually saying.
Also the idiot at Catholic Herald is not even aware of the precedent of accepting some messages as "worthy of belief" in the early stages and not commenting on later events. This happened in Argentina recently with Our Lady of the Rosary at St. Nichol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_ ... col%C3%A1s
My recommendation is to ignore the article - it's a biased hit job.
