I really don't know, nor do I know how we could dare hope for the future if the Vatican is concealing these things.

We have to bear in mind that there are also other seers and other prophecies and messages that may guide and direct what is done or not done.

"Oh God, I thank you that you have not made me like unto other men -- grasping, wicked, adulterous, or worst of all, a Roman Catholic"

The Gospel at Mass today was the Gospel of the Pharisee and the Publican. You know that one?

You guys worry a lot about our supposed sins of "idolatry". In fact, you worry a whole lot more about our supposed sins of idolatry than any Christian ought to worry about any one else's sins. I don't recall spending much of my life worrying about your sins. I worry about my own.

I would like some proof that any of you are at a sufficiently advanced state of spiritual development that you are in a position to instruct any of the Catholics on this thread. Please, each of you, detail for us a time when you committed the sin of idolatry in your own life, how you recognized it, how you repented of it, and how you lived that repentance. That way we'll know you know something of idolatry besides the fact that it gives you an excuse to point the finger. This sin of idolatry must not have any relationship to Catholicism; I want to see some capacity for self-criticism, not "Rome-criticism".

Failing that, why don't you just admit that you're all acting like Pharisees and shut up for a change.
