EVEN IF TRUE. 

Which they ain't!

I'm with you on this one TG..

Smacks of divination.
One small step away from being a 'seer' at Medjugoogoo.

Agreed--one should not rely on prophecies such as these or use them as a sort of horoscope. But the prophecies  give a glimpse into the Catholic world of centuries past, which was apparently quite similar to the present, with all its visionaries, alleged visionaries and apocalyptic prophecies.  What's especially interesting about the St. Malachy prophecies is that they extend to over 100 popes into the future, and the alleged final pope on the list corresponds to our current Holy Father in office today. We living in the 21st century may very well be witnesses the end of a very long false prophecy which generations of Catholics have kept alive for centuries.

But private revelation and prophecy are part of Salvation History; Paul speaks of those who are given the gift of prophecy
to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 1 Cor. 12:10


As for "Medjugoogoo," the reality is that the Church has not decided one way or another on the matter. Now then; what happens if the Church were to find that the events at Medjugorge are worthy of the faithful to believe, as it did with the events at Fatima? Obviously people would be free to not believe; though a stamp of approval by the Church would put Medjugorge in a whole different light. As for the so-called seers of Medjugorge, they are either all in cahoots over the past 30 years in the greatest hoax in history, or it is a Satanic deception. But why would Satan call on millions to repent, to go to confession, and to pray the Rosary?
