Catholic prayer for dating couples
On the surface, everything about the site appears to be Catholic, but it is not.The founders and visionary claim it is “ecumenical” and therefore does not fall under Catholic Church authority.I am writing again about Holy Love because some followers contacted me regarding my article of 11/20/09 (reproduced below), “Proclamation on Holy Love Will Test Hearts and Obedience”. emailed me last summer and we had a back and forth debate on the authenticity of the apparitions.
In my November of 2009 article, I said, “Despite all the usual Catholic trappings — chapel, statues, rosaries and religious bookstore, not to mention the throngs from across the country and globe — the purported visions by Maureen Sweeney-Kyle have been condemned.” Although the word “condemned” is the old term for a private revelation that received the “” judgment and my readers may have been better served by my simply reporting what the bishop said, the point remains: The conclusion of the bishop’s evaluation is that if there are any apparitions going on there, they .
Actual apparitions (as distinguished from hallucinations or other psychological phenomena) can only be from one of two sources: God (supernatural) or an influence of the devil (demonic, preternatural).
When in the history of the Catholic Church has the Blessed Mother operated outside the Church?
When has Jesus rejected His own authority — that of the Catholic Church?
A few years ago, I first wrote about Holy Love Ministries, the 83-acre site of Maranatha Spring in Ohio.
People have been going to this place since the early 1990‘s, drawn by founder Maureen Sweeney-Kyle’s claim that Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary and a host of saints are appearing to her with messages.
At that point, Holy Love Ministries took an “ecumenical” approach.
Yet, as an ecumenical ministry it found time and space in many of its printed materials to rail against the Church. Before I wrote my original article on Holy Love, I had called and talked with someone from the ministry.
