Papal visit to Bosnia has nothing to do with Medjugorje, says cardinal

May 14, 2015

At a press conference devoted to Pope Francis’s upcoming apostolic journey to Bosnia, Cardinal Vinko Puljic said that “Medjugorje has nothing to do with this visit.”

Citing confidentiality, the prelate, who served on the Vatican investigative commission on Medjugorje, declined to speak further on the alleged Marian apparitions, La Stampa reported. That commission has completed its work and sent its report to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in January 2014.

    So when will the faithful be let in on the decision of Commission. These kind of delays simply distance the people from the Church. If these are not true apparitions, the church should make it known immediately so more people are not led astray. If they are true apparitions in the opinion of the church, the faithful should know now so they can participate in these devotions.
