Fort Worth, Texas, Aug 12, 2019 / 11:30 am (CNA).- The Bishop of Fort Worth, Texas, has not authenticated alleged apparitions of the Virgin Mary that are said to have taken place in the diocese, according to a statement released last week.

“Recent claims made on websites and in social media have indicated that alleged apparitions and messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary, under a title of ‘Mystical Rose--Our Lady of Argyle,’ have been authenticated by Bishop Michael Olson and the Diocese of Fort Worth. This is not true,” the Aug. 8 statement said.

Claims - Apparitions - Messages - Church - Way

“These claims of apparitions and messages are not verified or endorsed by the Church, and in no way are claims true that the Mystical Rose is a ministry of the Diocese of Fort Worth or of St. Mark Parish.”

According to a website launched last month, the Blessed Virgin Mary began appearing in May 2017 to a “visionary.” The first such apparition was reportedly in Arkansas, and subsequent appearances allegedly took place at St. Mark Catholic Church in Argyle, Texas.

Claims - Messages - Virgin - Mary - Warning

The visionary claims to have received seven messages from the Blessed Virgin Mary in 2017, and in 2018 and 2019 to have received 30 “warning messages for the Church...from saints, angels, the Blessed Mother, and even from Christ Himself.”

The most recent such message recorded on the website is dated Aug. 1, and is credited to “three angels.” The message warns of a spiritual battle in the Church, noting that “men look to Rome for answers, But the questions have become so corrupted that the answers are wrong before they are given.”
