Benedict XVI plans to publish criteria to help them distinguish between true and false claims of visions of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, messages, stigmata - the appearances of the five wounds of Christ - and weeping or bleeding statues.

Why do you keep posting that lame Link?
If people want to believe what they want to, who are you to say anything about it?
Are you the thought police?

I appreciate your taking the time to dig out the quotes from the site.
I will spend some time trying to verify the claims made on the site, but it should be remembered that a number of the quotes you offered were not by people or bodies that are considered to be authoritative by the Church and are certainly not Church teachings.
Most importantly, the Popes never crowned bears. That would be highly dangerous.
I'll get back to you after I do some research.
**Edit: quickly found a site refuting much of what was posted about Papal claims of divinity: www.geoffhorton.com...

So if I see the Blessed Mother in my morning cereal, will the Inquisition show up at my door? Or at the very least a nun with a nasty disposition and a metal ruler?
