legitimate apparitions

The Pope: From now on, y'all, only "legitimate" appearances of Mary and Jesus will be acceptable
Benedict'll use a step-by-step process to introduce rigor into claims of apparitions and stigmatas because all those spurious, delusional sightings are embarrassing the Church. Bleeding statues, reflections in windows, etc., will be denounced . . unless of course they're determined by this rigorous process to be actual signs from God. Those signs will be approved.

One sure sign is the monetary amount that can be gleaned from such occurrences.

I wish the catholic church would this much effort into determining whether or not their religion is legit.

delusional sightings are embarrassing the Church
What about the Santa Claus outfit the pope is wearing in the second picture? Hell, what about the pope in the first picture? Hell, for that matter, what about all the holy relic crap they have sold for the last 2000 years? They have so much to be embarrassed over!

vegas_girl - Before enjoying your sacred chip, you may want to have your local priest bless some French Onion dip. It'll be a meal fit for a martyr.
