Cardinal Schönborn lauds alleged Medjugorje seers

Catholic World News - October 05, 2010

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn lauded alleged Medjugorje seers Ivan Dragicevic and Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti as he welcomed them to St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna on September 23, according to an English translation of his remarks that was recently posted on YouTube.

“Thank you for your service across so many years, for your work, for your service of being messengers of the Gospa [Our Lady],” the cardinal said. “You give us, you bring us children of this world, children of humanity, her love and her presence, and may God pay you back a hundredfold for what you are doing tirelessly.”

    I'm sure the Holy See is not exactly pleased with the Cardinal's "courage." One would think a Prince of the Church would practice the virtue of "prudence" especially before Rome concludes whether the apparitions are legitimate or not.

    The good cardinal might try reading Bishop Peric's directives to the seers and the priests of Medjugorje in the past couple of years. They are right there on his diocesan website. It is very disrespectful for other Bishops and Cardinals to ignore their brother Bishop Peric. Good grief is right

    "Au weiah!" (What Charlie Brown says instead of "Good grief" in the German syndication of the comic strip.)
