Sorry to post this here, again, but the blog "Catholic Light" has hosted comments which are factually incorrect. This is my reply (I was not allowed to post it)
The Congregation DID NOT condemn the messages. Cardinal Ratzinger said that her answers to the Notification provided "useful clarifications". He also said - as a matter of record - that when asked, the Congregation would say, "the position has been modified". Ratzinger, in an interview in "30 Days" said that the Notification was not a condemnation but a "warning", but this warning, to be understood correctly, must now be read alongside Vassula's answers, which HE INSISTED should first of all be printed in her books. There is more - for example, the dialogue between Card. Ratzinger and the lay theologian Dr. Neils Hvidt. Neils wrote a book on prophecy to which Card. Ratzinger wrote the foreword. In the book there is a discussion about Vassula. The Cardinal knew this when he wrote that introduction. people sometimes only have half or even less of the whole picture.
