Regardless of how many times it is alleged that OBL, the operative word is alleged, appears to whom claims it is so, does not of itself be the determining factor as to the veracity of such claims, nor so the personage, be they priest or laity. Likewise with claims of witnesses to apparent prodigies. Pre-Vatican 2, the church was far more prudent in its discernment concerning claims of visitations from heaven. Devils Advocate was a well- known character dispatched by the Vatican to test out the veracity of supernatural visitations. Even when his job was done the church took care and time in its deliberations. Post- Vatican 2, the Local Ordinary has the sole responsibility. He may or may nor form a committee to investigate such a claim, Equally, he may or may not accept the findings of such a committee, such being the case with the alleged Akita apparitions. This writer suggests that this modern form of discernment comes with numerous 'pit-falls' not of least being the bias of the …More

Ich denke, P. Pio war zwar streng gegen die Sünde, hatte aber gerade deswegen auch einen besonderen Sinn für Humor.
Er hätte wohl kaum jemand aus dem Beichtstuhl gewiesen, wenn der zu ihm gesagt hätte: Herr Pater, wäre es nicht einfacher wäre es für den Frisör gewesen, einen Küchentopf aufzusetzen und dann alle Haare abzuschneiden, die noch unten rausschauen?

Schon, dass die Mönche sich eine solche Frisur anlegen, zeigt doch, wie übernatürlich sie alle menschliche Wirklichkeit sehen und wie humorvoll sie deswegen auch der menschlichen Eitelkeit gegenüberstehen!
