I am posting today a very useful link to the website which lists the index of false apparitions condemned by the Roman Catholic Church. Private revelations are not dogmas of faith, one is not bound to believe in them. We can read and meditate on the private revelation officially approved by the Church. However, we are bound to believe in Holy Scriptures revelations. As St. John of the Cross says: In giving us his Son, his only Word (for he possesses no other), he spoke everything to us at once in this sole Word - and he has no more to say. . . because what he spoke before to the prophets in parts, he has now spoken all at once by giving us the All Who is His Son. Any person questioning God or desiring some vision or revelation would be guilty not only of foolish behaviour but also of offending him, by not fixing his eyes entirely upon Christ and by living with the desire for some other novelty. (The Ascent of Mount Carmel 2, 22)

Happy New Year and many blessings to all visitors to this blog.
