Tito: I am not sure about the article that the Vatican will reject Medjugorje. The article is incorrect in stating that the Vatican banned pilgrims and priests from journeying there. The Vatican still has not made an official statement and, in fact, instructed priests to accompany the faithful to Medjugorje if they were needed for the Sacraments. I myself have been there and found all the messages to be 100% orthodox. I have also seen the fruit of pilgrimages made to Medjugorje. Many conversions to the faith that are still burning strong. I will wait for the official statement from the Vatican, which may come after my lifetime, as it did for the apparitions at Laus in France. +JMJ

David & Connie,

I wasn't aware that the Vatican did not place a ban on pilgramages. I heard this before, but never questioned it. I will wait to hear from the Vatican their ruling.

I have reservations about the apparitions for several reasons, but the messages do seem 100% orthodox.

This reminds me of Garabandel, but my problem with Garabandel is that one of the seers married a divorcee.

One of the sticking points with me about Medjugorje was that many of the seers rejected Mary's request for them to enter the religious life and instead went ahead and married.

Another sticking point is that Mary's messages haven't stopped.

I'll blog about this soon, but I'll wait for the Vatican to decide. Until then, I'll reserve judgement.

Thanks for pointing out the bias and inconsistencies in the link though!



PS First Friday Mass at St. Helen's in Pearland was awesome!
