Upcoming CDF instruction on apparitions?
January 13, 2009
London's Daily Telegraph-- essentially reproducing the content of a report that appeared last week on the Italian web site Petrus-- is reporting that the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith will soon issue a document on how bishops should deal with Catholics who claim to have experienced supernatural phenomena such as apparitions. According to The Telegraph, silence will be imposed on alleged visionaries, who will be subject to psychological examination and potential questioning by exorcists to probe possible demonic influence.
