Another False “Apparition” Is Exposed

One of these multifarious modern-day “apparitions” is what is known as Garabandal, named for a remote village in Northern Spain, which purportedly received thousands of “apparitions” at about the time of the Vatican II Anti-council in the 1960s. Even Newchurch has essentially rejected the “apparitions,” which have been described as “childish stunts and simple tricks,” much as those at Medjugorje, Bayside, and other locales.

To Knowledgeable Catholics, This One Contradicts Catholic Doctrine
From: The TRADITIO Fathers   http://www.traditio.com/comment/com1608.htm
Our Lady of Garabandal
Many “Apparitions,” Like Medjugorje, Bayside, and Other Locales
By Which Many Newchurchers, and even Some Pseudo-traditionalists
Have Allowed Themselves to Be Fooled
Reveal Themselves as False to Those Who Know the Catholic Faith Well
The Garabandal Image Above Shows Mary Wearing a Maniple
A Priest’s Vestment Worn Only During Holy Mass
That the Blessed Virgin Mary Would Be Depicted Wearing a Priest’s Vestment
Is Blasphemous, as the Real Virgin Would Be the First to Understand and Condemn
Mary Is Not a Priest and Could Never Be One

In our confused age, to which Our Lord’s condemnation “Unless you see signs and wonders, you believe not” (John 4:48/DRV) rings especially true, many Newchurchers, and even some traditionalists, have turned from the worship of God to the idolatrous worship of miracles. Anyone, for example, who would equate Fatima to the authority of Sacred Scripture, as did one late pseudo-traditionalist priest-presbyter, is an idolater according to Church dogma.

One of these multifarious modern-day “apparitions” is what is known as Garabandal, named for a remote village in Northern Spain, which purportedly received thousands of “apparitions” at about the time of the Vatican II Anti-council in the 1960s. Even Newchurch has essentially rejected the “apparitions,” which have been described as “childish stunts and simple tricks,” much as those at Medjugorje, Bayside, and other locales.

But “God is not mocked” (Galatians 6:7/DRV). Often these “apparitions” reveal themselves as false to those who know the Catholic Faith well. For example, one of the images circulated by Garabandalites actually demonstrates its own falsity. This image of Mary shows her wearing a maniple, a priest’s vestment worn on the arm only during Holy Mass. (Curiously, the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order did away with it.) It is even taken off when the celebrant delivers a sermon. That the Blessed Virgin Mary would be depicted wearing a priest’s vestment is blasphemous, as the real Virgin would be the first to understand and condemn. Mary is not a priest and could never be one.

True Catholics, Our Lord warned in Sacred Scripture: “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect” (Matthew 24:24/DRV). True Catholics must be very vigilant so as not to allow themselves to be deceived by false doctrine and false worship.
