And Charlie Johnston cooperated with the archdiocesan inquiry.
Prudence and caution.
Works for me.
Glenn Dallaire has posted details on his site Mystics of the Church.
The commission did not offer any determination on the supernatural origins of Johnston's messages, but simply advised prudence and caution - as well as advised that Johnston would not be approved as a speaker in the Archdiocese.
After reviewing the commission’s findings and in keeping with his pastoral office, Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila of Denver has decided to strongly advise the faithful to exercise prudence and caution in regards to Mr. Charlie Johnston’s alleged divine visions and messages. As has been demonstrated with other alleged apparitions, the danger exists of people placing greater faith in a prediction than in Christ’s words and promises.
For these reasons, Mr. Johnston will also not be approved as a speaker in the Archdiocese of Denver.
For those who are disappointed by this finding, the archdiocese encourages them to seek their security in Jesus Christ, the sacraments, and the Scriptures. The faithful should also remember Christ’s words: “But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Mt. 24:36). - Statement
No doubt Charlie Johnston is a good man, devout Catholic, prayerful and faithful - highly intelligent and practical, filled with common sense as evidenced by his writings. As far as I can determine, he always submits himself to the discernment of his spiritual directors and above all, to the judgement of the Church. I think this is why much of his advice is so convincing. The Archbishop simply recommends prudence and caution. Nothing wrong with that.
(Read John of the Cross on locutions and you will understand.)
And this is how that works.
