-St. John of the Cross
--St. Thomas Aquinas
--Saint Rose of Lima
--Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
and infinite space is a mirror
to reflect His
is only an atom of God’s
brilliant shadow from which creation
moths consume their selves in it every second -
with their sacred passion to possess
though how arrogant for any image in that mirror,
for any human being, to
think they know
the earth’s wings
from the wolf’s cries we hear
all things desire to

....... so the above commentary only broaches the duty of the Church while subtly diverting attention from the duty of the faithful..if the faithful or the seers themselves maintain or presume any such supernaturality then the faithful and the prelates of the Church may not attend such a gathering...according to the decree of the Church.....no conclusive presumptions may be made in a public forum all such presumptions are indeed rebuttable (able to be challenged) since in the official mind of the Church no such parity of reasoned supernaturality has been made manifest..... amen

..and of course the devil will always try to negate the severity of his offence by trying to pawn off an injurious or mischievous lie as an officious or jocose lie since the devil is a joker and trickster by nature...
A lie may be in itself contrary to charity by reason of its false signification. For if this be about divine things, it is contrary to the charity of God, whose truth one hides or corrupts by such a lie; so that a lie of this kind is opposed not only to the virtue of charity, but also to the virtues of faith and religion: wherefore it is a most grievous and a mortal sin. If, however, the false signification be about something the knowledge of which affects a man's good, for instance if it pertain to the perfection of science or to moral conduct, a lie of this description inflicts an injury on one's neighbor, since it causes him to have a false opinion, wherefore it is contrary to charity, as regards the love of our neighbor, and consequently is a mortal sin. On the other hand, if the false opinion engendered by the lie be about some matter the knowledge of which is of no consequence, then the lie in question does no harm to one's neighbor; for instance, if a person be deceived as to some contingent particulars that do not concern him. Wherefore a lie of this kind, considered in itself, is not a mortal sin
and from the Catholic Encyclopedia...
But if the common teaching of Catholic theology on this point be admitted, and we grant that lying is always wrong, it follows that we are never justified in telling a lie, for we may not do evil that good may come: the end does not justify the means......St. Augustine held that the naked truth must be told whatever the consequences may be. He directs that in difficult cases silence should be observed if possible...
..indeed there are special cases such as the use of mental reservations may be apt however the Church does not promote the utility of such machinations excepting those which are lawful....
..so we see at MEDJUGORJE there have been instances where a false signification has been made for instance regarding the great sign that should happen (a shrine erected in the 1980’s) which never did occur and this type of lie which had as its subject matter divine things or acts of God is more grave and scandalous as well since it is made in a public arena all the more so we should pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who have participated in this sordid affair so that reparation forgiveness and unity might take place and as one we may move forward as the Church militant conquering the errors of modernism and consequentialism.....amen...

..the letter can be seen at this link....
...any such gathering would require a repudiation of official approbation or supernaturality in some explicit form...
