Apparition Site Reviews

Messages from false apparition sites are often accompanied by signs and wonders that convince the faithful they are from God, when in reality, they are backed by the powers of evil. Many victims from these sites have suffered ill effects in the form of separation from the Church’s guidance, deception from evil spirits, and mysterious forms of illness.

False apparition sites are dangerous because a vast majority of the messages are not coming from God, his angels, or saints, but from demonic entities that have been operating under religious-sounding names. In several of these situations, the seers have been driven by fraud, others have suffered hallucinations, but the vast majority have been operating under the influence of demonic spirits.

Because the devil has the ability to appear in the form of a cleverly disguised religious deception, the Catholic Church continues to evaluate the growing number of these sites. Anytime the Church discovers a discrepancy that conflicts with the sound teachings of Sacred Scripture, the Bishops, in connection with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, will issue a decree of non constat de non supernaturalitate to help warn and protect the faithful.
