Dear Julia, As I read your comments, I felt it necessary to review a previous post of mine regarding Fr. Michel....and to correct/ explain it as to not fall into any sin of what by some would/ could be labeled as calumny, that is indeed serious. The post I’m referring to was in to regards to Fr.s comment to give away your money etc. I didn’t then, nor do I now believe that until this professed prophet is properly vetted, this advise should be heeded....especially because there are false prophets that have lead the faithful into making life altering decisions that they deeply regretted. My regret in my comment is that I did question the possibility that perhaps he might be a recipient of the faithfuls charity. Yes, I actually do personally believe that some folks will made the decision to give away their money and that some might possibly give it to him or his ministry....but he DID NOT ask for that, nor did he imply that they should. It was my personal projection that this could occur. I regret that I allowed my personal opinion that this could be the outcome as interpreted by anyone as Fr. Michel implying that they should....he DID NOT. I was simply speculating that it was a possibility. As I would never want to either be accused or actually be guilty of the sin of calumny, I’m writing this now to correct/ explain any comment that I posted to remedy any possibility that my comments were incorrectly misinterpreted or my comment was inadvertently leading anyone to believe that Fr.Michel implied that money would/ should be directed to his ministry. That being said, I firmly believe that until he has been properly vetted by the church and his locutions have been approved, we all need to exercise proper caution and prudence and not make life altering financial decisions based on a you tube video of his talks. On a personal level, I actually support his call to use our financial resources to help others...even at my own risk to my financial future. That is my personal decision...based on my desire to help others and follow the law of God. I don’t give away “ everything “ as this would not be prudent. If God Himself told me to, I’d do it in a heartbeat! , That being said, I do not believe that anyone should make this same decision based on the call of a yet unvented, Self proclaimed prophet whose locutions have yet to be approved. If someone acted on his call to divest themselves of their financial reserves because they believe that his was a prophetic call from heaven, the consequences might be grave if later these good faithful followers discover that it was based on a false prophet potentially causing them to lose not only their financial security, but their faith all together! As I said earlier, Followers of Charlie Johnston did this....and are very angry and will live with lifelong regrets. Fr. Michel might be the real deal, I’m not qualified to make that determination, that is the duty of his superiors. I hope they do to put a end to this debate. Personally, until I see that his locutions have legitimacy, I will exercise caution about what he says, and certainly my comments and personal interpretation of his talks. That being said, we are all entitled to our opinions about Fr.Michel and his talks. He is a public figure that many faithful follow. If he is wrong, he should be called out....there is nothing wrong about that, but we are not entitled to judge his soul. Not just this priest, any priest...or anyone. Questioning actions, comments, etc. is not judging a soul. They are very separate things. This cuts both ways. Thank you Julia for your caution about this. Like HH remarked, everyone on both sides of this debate needs to be self aware regarding this. We should take this seriously and diligently to not make a comment that could wrongly and unfairly imply a impropriety to another. Judging the intentions of either a commenter or Fr. Michel are equally wrong. That being said, I believe that most all in this debate are well intentioned, but emotions can be attached inappropriately. A caution to be guarded is and was necessary....for all of us. My apologies to Fr. and to those who believed that my post needed either corrected or defined to remedy any possibility of calumny towards Fr. It was never my intention. I hope this clears up any responsibility to correct my error.
