Vatican commission on Medjugorje will report this year

Catholic World News - February 16, 2012

A Vatican-appointed commission studying the alleged Marian apparitions at Medjugorje will finish its work and present a report to Pope Benedict XVI before the end of this year, according to an Italian news report.

The ASCA news agency quoted Cardinal Vinko Puljic of Sarajevo, a member of the commission, as saying that “we need to finish [our work] this year.” Cardinal Puljic indicated that Pope Benedict would make a final judgment based on the commission’s report.

The Vatican announced in March 2010 a commission had been formed to investigate the authenticity of the reported apparitions. Chaired by Cardinal Camillo Ruini, the former vicar of the Rome diocese and a close ally of Pope Benedict, the commission has kept its proceedings strictly confidential.
