more on Medjugorje

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jan 06, 2010

Bishop Ratko Peric of Mostar-Duvno—who expressed his dismay about the recent visit to Medjugorje by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn—has long been critical of the Medjugorje “seers” and their messages. In December, the bishop released a lengthy analysis of the reports that a “great sign” would occur to prove the validity of the reported apparitions. The bishop uncovers a series of contradictions in the public statements of the “seers.”

A full translation of Bishop Peric’s analysis is now available on the Catholic Light blog.

See my previous post: Medjugorje: the message is unclear, but the differences are obvious.

    I have read Peric's treatise. If this is the best he can do, it isn't much. The fruits of Medj are enormous. If they were not, Rome would have closed the door on Medj a long time ago. Cardinal Schonborn's private visit underscores the position of the CDF: Peric's views are his own. The Church has yet to rule. It will, one day: AFTER the events of Medj are concluded. The establishment of a commission will accompany those events as witness, so the Church can testify to future generations.
