The German Shepherd Defends His Flock: Tightening the Screws on Alleged Visionaries

Despite the widespread belief that Catholics are superstitious (because we use medals and holy water and other sacramentals) and that the Church is a huge bunco scheme (that gets rich off of bilking poor peasants in order to build sumptuous churches), the reality is that no person or organization in the whole universe has exposed and put the kibosh on more frauds, swindles, hoaxes and scams than the Catholic Church. Another reality is that few people are sharper, smarter, or more far-seeing or formidable than her present head, Pope Benedict XVI.

Which is why false visionaries need to re-evaluate their strategies, especially in light of the Pope's forthcoming instructions on how to assess purported apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and what conclusions are to be drawn from given facts. Get the story here.
