See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

This is fun: Daytripping to Necedah



Before Bayside - there was Necedah.

I love this - Badg and his wife drove by the "Shrine" - but never got out of the car.  I wonder if their rosaries still turned gold?



BTW, guidelines for the discernment of reported apparitions and mystical phenomena have finally been translated, published and released by the CDF.  (Read more here.)  The 1978 document was always available and sent to bishops, but it was in Latin.  Authorities (priests/bishops) have referred to the guidelines in their various assessments of supposed miraculous occurrences, which have percolated in the later half of the 20th century.  I may be mistaken, but it seems to me I read somewhere similar criteria as stated in the guidlines used to condemn both Bayside and Necedah, as well as OL of the Roses apparitions at San Damiano in Italy.  I know!

  1. If only the guidelines for dealing with gay and lesbian Catholics were written only in Latin...gotta bring this post back to "gay" somehow! ;-)

  2. You know I remember in the early 90s reading an article in "Crisis" I THINK about Necedah. The SSPX wrote an article in the early 80s on it in "THE ANGELUS". Anyway, the article in "CRISIS" said the material someone picked up at "the shrine" had a horrendous odor to it...I thought that was wierd. I don't even know where Necedah is. I have however visited the shrine in Door County of "Our Lady of Good Hope" a few times. It really is a lovely spot. It reminds me of a small European type of chapel shrine. http://www.shrineofourladyofgoodhelp.com/
