My goodness, do we really think that God will leave us without direction for our times? I myself have had an apparition and locutions. How can I think God only talks to ME? If He or Mary has something to say, I'm wanting to hear it! Then, yes, I must use obedience to the Church and the Holy Spirit to help me to "take the good and throw out the rest" We can't hide under a mountain on the day of the Lord, so why would we hide from His prophets before the storm, especially when we all know how close the Day of the Lord really is! Most likely in our own lifetimes!
