Francis: Medjugorje negative?

I may have to change my views about Pope Francis if this report turns out to have any truth in it.

If he really does say “NO” to the Medjugorje phenomenon, such an act of courage (for make no mistake how pervasive the Medjugorje influence is in the Church) would make me eat my words.  Well, some of them.

Edit: A “pingback” to this post has appeared in Fr. Zuhlsdorf’s comments; I confess I don’t know how they work so its appearance is unintentional.  I discovered this because there were suddenly many hundreds of visitors (no doubt disappointed ones, most of them, as this post adds zero to what the good Father has on his blog).  I mostly write this blog as a personal exercise and didn’t intend to self-publicise in this way.  I hope that readers will therefore feel free to critique what they find here, should they wish to, in the spirit of open and frank dialogue.  That I am a Medjugorje sceptic should be in no doubt, however.

    1. Well, I pray that whatever the news turns out to be, it will be for the good of Holy Church, the honour of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the salvation of souls!

  1. It’s about time that a Pope will give their reservation on Medjugorje. It’s a big lie by the seers from the devil.

  2. Without Medjugorje I would never have entered the Catholic Church 21 years ago and received Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion. Before a kind lady lent me a little Book on Our Blessed Mother’s Messages to us, her children, in 1992, telling us how much She loved us, I didn’t even know I had a Mother in Heaven and was a follower of many new-age beliefs including re-incarnation and astrology, etc.. I had also broken all 10 Commandments, as had no religious upbringing, and was on my way to hell. Our Lady came and rescued me through these beautiful Messages from Heaven and led me to Her Son. I love to go to Mass daily and now lead Pilgrimages to Medjugorje. To be in Medjugorje is to experience Heaven on earth. God Bless you, Jan from Australia.

    1. Jan, a good story and I thank you for sharing it. The fact there are many others with similar testimonies is the reason I am a sceptic, rather than a sure disbeliever.

      1. Medjugorje is Sacramental. Pilgrims are healed and restored to the Sacraments of the Church. Lovely witness, Jan

  3. I don’t know what a pingback is either, but here I am. No doubt there have been great things happening at Medjugorje with all of the conversions and vocations discerned there. I have never heard of anything “bad” from the site. The the messages are so repetitious, though. They are the same love, love, love and pray. Not that that is unimportant, but it seems that they will go on forever. There are even blogs about old messages and they all say the same thing.

  4. Has it been 31 years or 32 years now, has Our Blessed Mother,ever had that many years to tell her chosen one’s her message?

  5. I went to Medjugorje in 1997. It took a few years later but our Lady kept leading me to the truth because I sought her and the Holy Spirit. The true is that Medjugorje is a hoax of human invention. Nothing supernatural has ever occurred there as a result of the claim of authentic apparitions. Not a single authenticated miracle. There are fruits of faith from any place faith is practiced however they are a gift of God, not of Medjugorje. The Fruit of Medjugorje is fornication and disobedience. Its an insidious deception. If any would like to read how to properly discern an apparition, as has been taught to me through the intercession of our Lady, read this note linked to below:
