here is a article thats not from the catholic church
Yea, it's not from the catholic church, it's just from a kooky sedevacantist
I found here
some interesting takes on the "Most Holy Family Monastery" by other
However one wouldn't need to read more than the first post to realize what kind of institution this is.
I recently viewed a video tape that was focused on creationism and provided supporing evidence of it against evolution.
The video was produced by The Most Holy Family Monastery in New York state.
I shouldn't even take their website (or article) seriously, but for the sake of argumentation I read it. It was painful, but I read it and here's my
take on it:
Please notice that the Masonic, anti-clerical daily of Lisbon described the event of Fatima and the Miracle of the Sun as “The sign of
Heaven.” Does that sound familiar?
Apocalypse 12:1- “And a great sign appeared in Heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve
From the PDF file.
Somehow relating a newspaper's headline to a passage of the Bible is supposed to prove anything?
And did you know that there's no word in Portuguese for 'heaven'? In Portuguese the word céu
means both sky and heaven. So the headline
could've actually been "a sign from the sky".
the article also talks about how it stunned the gathered multitude,converted hardened unbelievers,including atheist and free masons and
converted thousands to the Catholic faith
It seems like we're going around in circles here...
Just because the people gave it a religious meaning, or religion was the only means for them to make sense of what they had experienced, doesn't mean
the event itself had religious meanings now does it?
How many of the thousands of witnesses you think would have attributed religious meanings to the Phoenix Lights if it had happened in 1917?
People will see and give religious meanings to things when they want and wherever they want to. Even in a toast.
Now imagine what kind of explanation people were going to come up with 90 years ago, in a rural area of Portugal...
Now I bring to your attention to some of the facts
Lucia and the other children never said it was the Virgin Mary when the being started visiting them. It was other people that heard of their story
that started saying it was the Virgin Mary. People that had never seen anything much less the being. The children simply called the being a "little
woman", because according to them the being was about 3'7".
I brought this up in a previous post. Is the Virgin Mary a midget? Or is this detail overlooked?
And did you know that the priest of the village, the first to get the testimony of Lucia and the other children left the village because he didn't
believe it was the Virgin Mary that the children saw?
Palasheea already posted a lot of info from that book written by 2 Portuguese researchers, that had access to the secret documents of the Sanctuary of
Fátima. Their conclusions are obvious.
Hardly undeniable proof that aliens are associated with religion
I guess we're just going to have to agree on disagreeing.
