If you click here, you’ll find that over the years I have rarely mentioned Medjugorje. But a few moments ago, I had an impulse to make a statement regarding Medjugorje and I’ve decided that I should indeed do so.
The impulse was inspired while I was listening to a comment made by Frank Walker of stumblingblock.org as he was commenting on a headline posted at canon212.com which read: “FrancisEnvoy Abp. Hoser on Medjugorje farce: I can’t speak to the truth of the visions. That’s Card. Ruini’s job. All I can say is it’s dynamic, spiritually special, see?”
Walker made clear that he believes Medjugorje is a farce and obviously, the person who drafted the headline from which he quoted shares his opinion. The story behind the headline had to do with an interview conducted on April 5 in the village of Medjugorje with Archbishop Henryk Hoser and members of the press from various countries. Rather than read someone’s summary of or comments on the interview, you can watch and listen to it in fullness here.
My purpose for this post, as I have previously stated, is to fulfill an impulse to make a statement. It is not to expound on why I believe the apparitions are authentic or to debate with those who hold the opposite opinion. I merely wish to state that I find it astonishing that any Catholic could believe that it is impossible for the apparitions at Medjugorje to be authentic and I find it sad that those who come across as orthodox Catholics could take such a stance.
One day, we all will be certain of what is the truth. Not necessarily by what anyone has said, but by proof positive.
