Proclaimed Virgin Mary Visions Draw Thousands To Alabama
Posted 07 July 2012 - 04:54 PM
A visit from a Croatian woman who says she sees the Virgin Mary on a daily basis drew thousands of people to a small Alabama town this week, many of them traveling long distances to be near the self-proclaimed visionary.
Despite skepticism of prominent Catholics, the faithful said they trekked to Sterrett, about 30 minutes south of Birmingham, with hopes of hearing a message from the mother of Jesus, witnessing miracles and receiving direction about how to follow their faith.
"I am here to get our Lady's graces," said Steve Schoenecker, 56, who came from Minnesota.

well, I just came across the similarity of their pope's mitre and dagon fish god of babylonia...their priests wear the same thing..... I'm glad I left the RCC.
Yes. If you look at pictures of popes centuries ago, they still had the fish eyes in their mitres, Anglican bishops also have Dagon's mitre.

yes they should be reading the bible instead of running around in every apparitions..... still we need to pray for them and reach out. They are surely lost.
Yes, we need to reach out to them when possible, the problem is one who has no hope is easier to win to Christ than one who has a false hope. Those who have a false hope most times will defend their false hope all the way though the doors of hell, them debate Jesus over it telling Him how many wonderful things they did in His name.

I also am amaze because I know myself has a hard Catholic upbringing too and suddenly I came to see the truth. Tons of books I have like the Cathechism of the Catholic Church, various books of saints.. their writings I have. And I was able to dispose them even those given to me by my late aunt. Its hard at first but I need to dispose them. Now I'm collecting Christian books. I know the writers aren't that perfect I pray that I may get the good teachings and filter the bad.
To INVICTA - talk about the case of miracles. And rose petals,... you know the one with images on it imprinted. I was pointing out to my workmates it is a fake.. it can be reproduce.. but they think its really a sign in heaven. It's famous here in the Philippines now... run by someone claiming to be a visionary named Carmelo Cortez... please read the link and tell me what you think. I know he;s a fake and all visionaries out there. They may be telling the truth like they saw something but the question is where did the message really come from?

I just which there was more concern for the lost. Around here it seems most are just happy to be saved & it does not bother them that they have family or friends that are lost & think about God only when attending church services.

It is our duty to reach out to the unbelievers for Jesus said when He went to heaven... about evangelizing go out to all the nations and send forth the good news. Knowing GOD's mercy and that we are saved isn't enough... reach out to the lost.
