Post Revelation

Post Revelation October 13, 2009

Recently Medjugorje has been in the news.  It appears the denunciations there are becoming more formal and more explicit.  On the other hand, you have apparitions like Our Lady of Guadalupe with churches being named in her honor.  What brings this up for me is a worksheet my oldest brought home asking what our Lady of Fatima had revealed to the seers.  Unlike Medjugorje, there is no real controversy over Fatima, but it struck me as something quite odd.  After all, I don’t reside on Portugal, and needless to say we don’t have a Portuguese diaspora here.  I’m not aware of a parish in the area that does a special celebration on May 13th either.

But then again, this was (I’m confident) a nationalized curriculum.  Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Fatima.  If it gives you strength, more power to you.  I don’t have a real interest in Fatima, and I really don’t need to have an interest in it.  (As far as devotions go, I like the Sacred Heart of Jesus.)  Again, I don’t want to play the my devotion is better than your devotion game.  I’m curious what other people think about the extent extra revelation should be officially sanctioned and promulgated by parishes.
