Just two comments:

1) It is extremely unfair - not to mention inaccurate - to compare Fabio Leite to Jack Chick.

2)  I actually agree with stashko (waits for lightning bolts! Grin ) - there ARE an awful lot of spurious visions of Mary which deceive a lot of people, and may well be demonic.  Many great RC saints such as Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross advise us to reject ALL such visions, just to be safe.

Interesting "Orthodox" apparition. Throw in a dash of ecumenism because the particular object is not a weeping icon, but a statue!

http://www.windsorstar.com/life/Skeptics+question+weeping+Virgin+Mary+statue+Windsor/3772003/story.html

Quote
WINDSOR, Ont. — The Orthodox Christian church to which Fadia Ibrahim belongs is not endorsing her claims that her Virgin Mary statue is miraculous.

Father John Ayoub of the St. Ignatius of Antioch Church in Windsor said he’s well aware of the stir that the statue has caused.

He said Ibrahim approached him in March with stories about the statue, which is said to weep tears of healing oil at night and which has attracted scores of pilgrims to a formerly quiet Windsor neighbourhood.

Fortunately, it's not your job to decide who is Orthodox and who isn't. Smiley

I usually reject all those who attack Holy Mother Church, just to be safe Wink

2)  I actually agree with stashko (waits for lightning bolts!

I guess I don't get bent out of shape about apparitions because, even though there are several approved by our Church, they have never been a big part (or any part really) of my spirituality so I don't really think about them. I don't believe the ones approved by the Church are demonic though.

Just two comments:

1) It is extremely unfair - not to mention inaccurate - to compare Fabio Leite to Jack Chick.

2)  I actually agree with stashko (waits for lightning bolts! Grin ) - there ARE an awful lot of spurious visions of Mary which deceive a lot of people, and may well be demonic.  Many great RC saints such as Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross advise us to reject ALL such visions, just to be safe.
1) I don't think that Fabio is Jack Chick. In fact, I think that most Fabio's posts at OC.net are fantastic. But in this particular thread, I do believe that Fabio's tactics are similar to the tactics of Jack Chick.
2) Yes there are some that are not genuine, but I doubt one that has been approved by the Church, and carries with it such universal Catholic support would be demonic. "The Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Foundation of Truth."
