CWN Editor's Note: An ex-priest who was once spiritual director for the visionaries of Medjugorje has been excommunicated, after he failed to obey the terms of his laicization. Tomislav Vlasic, a former Franciscan, had been laicized in 2009, at his own request, after the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) investigated his role in “spreading of dubious doctrine, manipulation of consciences, suspicious mysticism, disobedience to legitimate orders.” The CDF announced his excommunication after he continued to carry out priestly functions.
