Odd bedfellows-the false and the true

I am finding it very odd that so many traditional Catholics are being led astray by false seers. I have placed, months ago, a list of my posts on the dangers of private revelations.

We have enough to read and follow without being concerned about someone in Ireland or England who claims they are seeing the Virgin Mary. I think the attraction is a combination of intellectual laziness, anti-intellectualism, and the seeking of consolations.

Read, study, think, pray

Here is the Son of God on this point:

"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
Matthew 7:15–23

"At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. . . . For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect – if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time" Matthew 7: 15-16

 "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,but only the Father." Matthew 24:36
