"Vatican Officials" say a lot of things. This man who is said to be an expert in demonology also claims to be an expert on the phenomenon of intelligent extraterrestrial life. We say they are supernatural in origin and the appearance of strange and foreboding lights in the sky are unfavorable signs.
Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a theologian member of the Vatican Curia (governing body), and an insider close to the Pope, has gone on Italiannational television five times, including recent months, to proclaim that extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon. Balducci provided an analysis of extraterrestrials that he feels is consistent with the Catholic Church's understanding of theology. Monsignor Balducci emphasizes that extraterrestrial encounters "are NOT demonic, they are NOT due topsychological impairment, they are NOT a case of entity attachment, but these encounters deserve to be studied carefully." Since Monsignor Balducci is a demonology expert and consultant to the Vatican , and since the Catholic Church has historically demonized many new phenomena that were poorly understood, [Like the historical propensity for the press to be leftist deceivers who herald new phenomena like Communism as saviours of mankind.] his stating that the Church does not censure these encounters is all the more remarkable.
Balducci revealed to a visiting American professional that the Vatican is closely following this phenomenon quietly. My informant originally surmised that the Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its Nunciatures (embassies) in various countries.
So, uh, are we gonna have to pay a tax to them now?
Maybe there is intelligent life on other planet, maybe there isn’t. Doesn’t affect my faith either way.
God must have been an extraterrestrial, right? He was a PREterrestrial! QED.
No. Register them to vote Democrat
Yah, except there’s really no evidence for it.
Reparations, because they were here first and only Americans steal land.
This time we actually stole the whole planet.
Green. Goes by the handle KANG. Slobbers a lot.
"Vatican Officials" say a lot of things.
"The Pope is (in certain constrained circumstances that have never actually in history pertained) infallible".
"Mary was assumed bodily in to heaven. "
They can say lots of things. Doesn't mean I should believe them.
WILL CHECK IT OUT.
The Vatican has been insuring that such an idea has been getting out for years now.
Among your other mischaracterizations of the Vatican, are you now sayng that they are in competition with Prudential?
Monsignor Balducci died two years ago. How in the world can he have gone on television five times in recent months? Do you guys do any research at all?
Mark in light of the UFOs above Rome this year, it’s timely anyway.
Besides, no one has yet provided any explanation of the Msgr’s comments. Not that we know.
