Having discussed the ongoing Zaro/Ischia apparitions occasionally on the forum, and given that the messages to the alleged seers Simona and Angela on the 8th and 26th of each month are not translated into English anywhere, I will try to post translations here on a 'for your discernment' basis (as ever). My sense is that doing this is legitimate given that the local ordinary Mons. Pietro Lagnese is clearly taking the phenomenon seriously, having established an official diocesan theological/scientific inquiry by public decree on August 15th, 2014, soliciting testimonies of healings etc. Obviously if the outcome of this inquiry is negative then we can remove the thread, but I have to say that of the current batch of Italian purported apparitions and locutions, what I have studied of the Zaro material thus far strongly suggests that it merits attention. The messages appear to be substantially convergent with the international 'prophetic consensus'. It is perhaps worth noting that they usually begin with the words 'May Jesus Christ be praised', which in itself is at least a guarantee that they cannot be diabolical in origin.
