Pope to Hold Press Conference on Aliens and the Supernatural

The Vatican has announced that it is set to hold a press conference on “supernatural phenomena” tomorrow, and it will touch on aliens and how it will deal with potential encounters in the future.

According to a notice on the Vatican’s website, it will kick of at noon tomorrow, and will feature three prominent Vatican members.

Being held to “present the new provisions of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith for discerning between apparitions and other supernatural phenomena,” it will be led by Cardinal Victor Manuel Fernandex, Messenger Armando Matteo and Daniela Del Gaudio.

The former are part of the Vatican’s Doctrine of the Faith, while the latter is listed as the director of the International Observatory for Marian apparitions and mystical phenomena of the Pontifical International Marian Academy, lecturer in Mariology at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum and the San Bonaventura Faculty of Rome.

The move to hold the press conference has caused ripples in the alien community, as one like this hasn’t been held since February 1978. However, according to the National Catholic Reporter, it is being done so after a surge in reporting of aliens and “supernatural phenomena” from mainstream media . . . such as the one you’re currently reading.

Cardinal Franjo Seper explained how the move made by The Pope and his officials is “necessary”.

He said: “Moreover, the ease of going from one place to another fosters frequent pilgrimages, so that Ecclesiastical Authority should discern quickly about the merits of such matters.”

The press conference is will see new guidelines launched on how the Vatican will deal with aliens and phenomena created by them – or alleged aliens etc. Until now, pretty much everything has been dismissed by The Pope and its investigative team, so it remains to be seen what the new document will do in terms of being more open to it.

However, Pope Francis did touch on aliens at the end of last year, when he was talking about how early Christians discussed associating with “Jews and Gentiles” – which, for some reason, he compared to aliens.

He said: “That was unthinkable. If, for example, tomorrow an expedition of Martians came, and some of them came to us, here…Martians, right? Green, with that long nose and big ears, just like children paint them…And one says, ‘But I want to be baptized!’ What would happen?”

He didn’t answer his own question, but added: “It was never the ministry of the closed door, never,”

    I am a Catholic apologist and the church has never said that no one but Catholics can go to heaven. In the past, perhaps radicals may have said that but I guarantee you no one says that now unless they are brain dead. Believing in our Lord and following what he said is all you need. Love of the Lord.
