So, B16 doesn't have much to do. He's just the leader of a major world religion that allegedly believes in peace, love and understanding. That doesn't fill his time though, seeking peace and justice in the world, so he has started a holy war against those poor people who see Jesus and/or Mary in a grilled cheese sandwich.
The Pope is declaring a 'holy war' against people who claim falsely that the Virgin Mary is appearing to them. He will attempt to snuff out an explosion of bogus heavenly apparitions with new guidelines to help bishops root out frauds. Benedict XVI plans to publish criteria to help them distinguish between true and false claims of visions of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, messages, stigmata - the appearances of the five wounds of Christ - and weeping or bleeding statues. In some cases exorcists will be used to determine if a credible apparition is 'divine' origin or 'demonic'. Source.
Have to wonder about B16s obsession with demons. I mean, look at those ears!
