Pilgrimages to Medjugorje Officially Authorized

[Champagne corks are popping in the offices of Medjugoogoo travel agencies]


The Church’s stance regarding pilgrimages to Medjugorje has changed according to Archbishop Henryk Hoser, Pope Francis’ envoy to Medjugorje, Bosnia. Until now, dioceses, parishes or priests were forbidden to organize pilgrimages to Medjugorje.

Hoser told Aleteia (December 7) that this is de facto “no longer a problem.” He pointed out that Francis recently asked an Albanian cardinal to give his blessing to the faithful present in Medjugorje.

According to Hoser the conclusion of the Vatican Medjugorie Commission is favourable. The alleged apparitions of Medjugorie have been controversial from the beginning and are full of contradictions and false prophecies.

  1. This means doodah, zip, zilch.

    The fraud was exposed and publicly condemned within a month of its bogus, heretical inception by Bp. Zanic of Mostar, was repeatedly found bogus by a series of investigations by the bishops conference of Yugoslavia and was severely sanctioned by Rome… until Papa Bergoglio got hisself a change of clothing.

    Even he is on record indicating that he had problems with this idiotic charade. Of course, that was then and this is now…

    As lamentable (if the report holds up to scrutiny) as it is laughable, many will spend the rest of their natural lives “convinced” of the risible ruse since hard facts and doctrinal explanations mean zip to “true believers”. Even Bayside retains a few fervorini to this day.
