Megaforgery

There is a lot of confusion about Megaforgery and I feel it is important to set the record straight.

Megaforgery is a small town in Bosnia-Hertford-Governor where it is claimed Our Lady is appearing. To date, there have been over a million claimed sightings, but the number increases steadily on a daily basis. It would be impossible to list the contents of all these messages, but they are on the following lines:

"Be nice and pray and be nice and fast and be nice and let there be peace and be nice. Thank you for listening."

Supporters of these 'apparitions' point to the great fruits of Megaforgery: very devout people praying and fasting and rosaries turning into gold. What could possibly be wrong with that?

Whilst it is true that we should judge something by its fruits, we should consider ALL the fruits.

The problem with the Megaforgery messages is that interspersed with orthodox teachings, there are also heretical teachings. What's more, there has been widespread disobedience to both the Pope and the local bishops and clergy celebrating the sacraments illictly.

We couldn't possibly condone that sort of behaviour at the Society of Such Pious Gents, could we?
