'Apparitions' of Guazapa not approved by Church in El Salvador

.- Archbishop Fernando Saenz Lacalle of San Salvador has said the Catholic Church has not approved the alleged apparitions of Mary at the hill of Guazapa, despite claims made by the supposed visionary to a local newspaper.

During a press conference, the archbishop lamented “the abuse by a group of people in Guazapa who sent false documents to the press, making them believe the apparitions had been approved by the Archdiocese.”

The newspaper El Mundo recently published a series of reports on the events in Guazapa, which is located several miles north of San Salvador.

The alleged seer, identified as Bessy Rodriguez, gave false documents to the newspaper supposedly showing the apparitions had been approved.

Archbishop Saenz pointed out that “no official of the archdiocese has signed, sealed or sent documents to anyone.”

“There has been a lot of, shall we say, commercialization of these legends, but the visions of Guazapa have never been approved,” he said.
