I just happened to notice that there are some criticisms on these boards of Fr. Gobbi and the MMP. I'm wondering if anybody can further expand on these? Is there concrete evidence that there are problems with the alleged private revelations associated with them?
I bring this up as I'm generally very sceptical of private revelations etc. until the Church rules favourably, but in the case of the MMP I know several priests involved here in Ireland and I would only have good things to say about them, very hard-working, orthodox men who really helped me a lot when I was first starting to really try and practice my faith.
I'm not saying this to be defensive, I'm just genuinely curious to know if there are proven problems with the messages (I haven't really read through them myself) as the priests I know who are involved are very well balanced good men and if there was a problem I'm sure that they wouldn't be knowingly following them.
I remember seeing that he got some of his messages in Medjugorje, that was enough on its own to put me off. You are right about the priests, I know a good priest who is involved. The same is true concerning Medjugorje, many of the better priests are into it. The reason no doubt is that the better priests are generally Marian in outlook & there are generally rather traditional type messages especially in regard to the MMP.
Claritas: It was not my intention to go until a series of events led me there. I'll leave it up to the Church to decide what is and is not a hoax, I can only judge what I personally experienced, and those of others pilgrims I met. My only regret is not going sooner.

Colmcille: Forum is all into politics of the world and mickey measuring instead of any depth of spirituality - wrong focus. No salt or light. Pray and Fast. May God bring blessings to you.

maolsheachlann: Well, that is because it is a forum. I suspect everyone who does post here prays and fasts and cultivates a spiritual life. But these are things we agree on, so it doesn't really make for discussion.

maolsheachlann: Of course, if you want to take it in a different direction you are welcome to post something.

Colmcille: Political nonsense. You don't have to disagree with the depth of Catholic spirituality, lives of the Saints and treasures of the faith in order to discuss them.

maolsheachlann: This is why I disabled the shoutbox on the Irish Conservatives Forum. People with substantive contributions to make will do so in the forum.

maolsheachlann: I wish the lurkers would get involved. What's there to lose? It's a shame that there's only four or five people who post on the forum.

Lurker: one might think the only issue facing Irish Catholics are liturgical.

maolsheachlann: I agree there is an over-emphasis on this among many Catholics.
Nov 19, 2019 15:07:04 GMT
maolsheachlann: Although of course it's important, too.

self excom: Do most Catholics actually know that to be a true catholic they need to believe that Mary is not the mother of God

maolsheachlann: I think you're going to have to expand on that one.

Arthur Miles Martin: You left out the four requirements for the holy Mass / Sacred Liturgy to be licit and valid. Proper ordination, proper form, proper intent and proper matter of pure wheat bread and pure grape wine. These are being violated everyday in most dioceses.

Arthur Miles Martin: I lived through Vatican II. The worse thing that came out of it was the ten year EXPERIMENTATION WITH THE HOLY EUCHARIST. I attended a gingerbread Jesus Mass, a sexual-deviant Mass and I had a cousin tell me of a pizza and cola mass in Alabama.

Arthur Miles Martin: Each year the USCCB petitioned the Vatican for Communion in the hand and each year the Vatican's response was NO! Then after ten rejections the USCCB said but we have to because the People demand it. I was never asked, were you?

indie77: The doctrine of the trinity says God is not Jesus so Mary is not mother of God
Feb 26, 2020 10:19:36 GMT
hibernicus: Indie 77 seems to be independent of any knowledge of the actual doctrine of the Trinity. Is he using "God" to refer to God the Father only?
