Apparitions and Catholic Devotionality
Typically, the lack of scriptural or theological foundation (like the scarce presence of the Virgin in the testaments) that could be considered problematic from some perspective, it is not. It becomes an advantage and beyond the point, since the focus in many of these mobilizations is ritual performance and intense experiences rather than sharing of beliefs beyond the particular saint or virgin (i.e. beliefs concerning sacraments, particular sins etc.)
The article will explain the power of these apparitions among some groups of Catholics and the ways in which normal Catholics may and do become mobilized as well.
