Abstract: Senasis ir Naujasis Testamentai perduoda žinią, kad dieviškasis Apreiškimas, vadovaujant Šventajai Dvasiai, turi tąsą Bažnyčioje. Bažnyčia, skelbdama mokymą apie Dievo Motinos Marijos pasirodymų tikėtinumą, vertina tai dieviškojo Apreiškimo kontekste. Todėl Bažnyčios Magisteriumas Marijos pasirodymus pripažįsta autentiškais ne įsakydamas jais tikėti, o nurodydamas, kad jų žinia neprieštarauja Apreiškimui. Kartu Bažnyčia pateikia vyskupo atsakomybės gaires, nurodo vertinimo normas (tai ženklai, regėtojo psichinės ir moralinės savybės, skelbiama žinia, rezultatai), reglamentuoja viešą pamaldumą ir įspėja apie galimus vertinimo pavojus
The aim of the work is to reveal the Church teachings about Marian apparitions and to evaluate them in the light of the Divine Revelation. The Old and New Testament reveal the Divine Revelation, guided by the Holy Spirit, with its dynamic character and continuity in the Church (through the charismatic service). The Church while “reading the signs of time” has to disclose gradually the essence of the Revelation and serve in the salvation of mankind. For this aim God can use the helpmate’s mission voluntarily accepted by the Blessed Mary and enable Marian apparitions, with the purpose not to compliment the Revelation but to actualize it in a certain historic epoch. Supernatural events are possible and their origin is determined by the Church; the Church Teaching precedes private revelations; ’Christ’s declared way of salvation is higher than commands given in private revelations’, claim the Seniors of the Church – the Pope, bishops and priests in their unity. Catholics can believe in private revelations confirmed by the Church but it is not obligatory to do that although Catholics have to believe in Church Teachings and accept them if they want to achieve salvation. Private revelations originated from God are based on obedience, humility, modesty, love of the Church, honesty and goodness, and the apparitions coming from the devil are based on pride, deceit, hatred to Christ Church and human destruction. Believers should publicize and distribute apparitions until the Church Seniors have confirmed them. Catholics should not base their belief and devotion on misleading and forbidden apparitions that were banned by the Church; otherwise they will be responsible for destroying the unity between God and the Church. The Church Magisterium acknowledges the Blessed Mary’s apparitions to be authentic, with no commands to believe them, but in agreement with the Divine Revelation.[...]
