Ave Forum stricktly writes about apparitions that are recognized to be true by the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church. Writers
and artists who want to contribute to Ave Forum keep in mind that not all the material send to us can be published.
is not looking for articles about apparitions that have not been approved by a local
bishop, who is the first and main authority in apparition cases.
If the Church makes a negative ruling about a particular apparition, we are not to
believe in that apparition. If the bishop makes a positive ruling about an apparition, we are not bound to assent to
the apparition, but we cannot berate the messages nor the apparition once the Church declares it valid.
