Always rejoice. Pray without ceasing. In all things give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you all. Extinguish not the spirit. Despise not prophecies. But prove all things; hold fast that which is good. [1st Thessalonians, 5:20-22]
After the election of Pope Francis, and slightly before it, I noticed a change in attitude concerning Catholic prophecy, by which I mean prophetic utterances that, when taken together, form what is known as "private revelation" (where Public Revelation is that containing the Sacred Scripture, to which nothing will be added and is primary).
This is likely a natural reaction to the List of Popes accredited to St. Malachy, from which wild interpretations of the Last Pope being named Peter the Roman have been spun, particularly by Protestants. The latest attitude is to triumphantly declare not only the bit about Peter the Roman "debunked," but to dismiss the whole list as bogus. The chief promoter of this has been Catholic apologist Jimmy Akin, a apologist affiliated with Catholic Answers. This attitude has moved to even to Church approved private revelation, such as the Secrets given by Our Lady to the Children at Fatima.
It is a reaction, and like all reactions it often responds to excesses in one direction with excesses in the opposite one.
