Akita, originally accepted as reliable and supernatural by the Niigata, Japan Bishop of Akita and, eventually affirmed privately by Pope Emeritus BenedictXVI when he was still just a Cardinal, still has no written or documented record of approval. Given that Our Blessed Lady told us at Akita that Akita and Fatima carry the same message it would seem a straight forward matter to those in authority but, at Akita the Queen of Heaven added something new as, at the time of Her appearance at Fatima it was a thing simply not done and the current hierarchy do not want to accept this and so do not acknowledge it; my personal opinion on that, Our Blessed Lady of Akita told Sister Sasagawa to “receive Holy Communion only on the tongue, never in the hand”.
Receiving in the hand is just one of the myriad errors brought in after the second Vatican Council. That Council which had as ‘observers’ high ranking Protestant church-men who actually guided matters and the same thinking that influenced V2 has now granted the Chinese communists authority to select catholic bishops for the catholic faithful in that country. I see this development as an evil entirely. I expect Heaven won’t wait much longer to intervene. It will not be pleasant.
