    AFTER
    writing Medjugorje… Truth You May Not Know, a priest alerted me to a new documentary with an explosive alleged revelation regarding Bishop Pavao Zanic, the first Ordinary to oversee the apparitions in Medjugorje. While I had already suggested in my article that there was Communist interference, the documentary From Fatima to Medjugorje expands on this.

    I plan to rent this documentary tonight.

    ComeSoon!, Thank you for posting this. I think that Mark Mallett is a very good man.

    Last night I read on MOG that he might be finished writing and he was my first thought this morning upon wakening and I was truly glad to read an update on MOG that is not the case.

    I have a lot of reading to do to catch up on his ideas on all this. It is good to hear that there is a video to watch which may help to grasp some of the information.

    Thank you again!

    Trying to gauge which thread to add this comment to...it could easily go in others which are closed. Around 9:00 last night I heard on the radio a recorded show that Mother Angelica hosted in the US. She was talking answering a caller's question as to why the Church takes a long time to approve apparitions an what the criteria are. I don't often navigate EWTN online but perhaps you can find it. She did very much believe Our Mother is appearing often in our time. Her answer for the wait in approvals centered on the fact that they are rarely if ever approved of during the lifetime of the seer. She also of course urged focus on the fruits of the apparitions and devotion to Our Lord ever and fully present in the Eucharist. Her observation was if you do not visit our Lord in Adoration, you have no business traveling long distances to visit a site of apparition. The entire purpose of apparitions is to bring us children closer to our Lord.

    She believed Our Mother and Christ are appearing to various seers due to the desperate hour and state of our world. Events of our time, according to her are truly reaching the ultimate hour up to the Warning. She definitely believed events in Garabandal did occur. I site that location only because I have seen her in video interviews on that topic. Say what you will about

    Yes, ComeSoon, I have read in the past an article that helped me understand why Bishop Pavao Zanic would not accept the events at Medjugorje.
    To be honest, I would be too afraid of offending Our Lord by writing what I had read. But wonder if he and later Bishops are either under the influence of the masonic sect or in the case of the first Bishop, I wondered if he was too scared of the communists. To be fair the Apostles deserted Jesus through fear the night He was arrested, so we should not be too hard on Bishops who are afraid to defend the Faith nowadays. We just need to pray for them as Our Lady advises.

    I believe it is customary for Holy Mother Church to wait until events prophesied come to pass before making a judgement on any apparitions.

    In the case of Fatima, Sr. Lucy was still alive when approval was given. I believe it must have been the miracle of the sun which was witnessed by over 70,000 people on October 13th 1917. Of course other prophesies were also fulfilled as revealed by Blessed Mother like the ending of the First World War, and the Second World War starting if people did not amend their lives. This all certainly came about as we all know.

    I would not expect Medjugorje to be formally approved until and if any secrets are revealed and prophesies attached to them come to pass.

    It is extraordinary that the Church is discreetly allowing people to go there and share in the Sacraments and the Rosary and Stations of the Cross. We hear of many conversions and reversions, as well as calls to the religious life, as a result of making a journey to Medjugorje, and partaking in the traditional devotions there. Of course we also hear of Priests who were becoming lukewarm or beginning to lose the fervour of their first calling being rejuvenated and getting back to their calling with renewed fervour after making a trip to Medjugorje, praise be Jesus and Mary.

    We will of course accept the judgement of Holy Mother Church. Always remember, the Divine Mercy devotion was silenced by the Church for 40 years, and by the Grace of God revived and approved in God's time. I was one of the people who KNEW Jesus Divine Mercy was real, and I never understood why it was silenced. Ours is not to reason why. But I can tell you, I was one happy bunny when Saint John Paul brought Divine Mercy to approval. Praise God.

    And no doubt, whatever happens Medjugorje can be cherished privately, if we are convicted of it's authenticity. St. Paul tells us we can take what is good and in keeping with the Gospel message and hold on to it, and leave the rest in Gods hands. That is how I will feel should it become necessary.

    Akita is another approved apparition, although the prophesies have not been fulfilled as yet. I am referring to the one about fire falling from the sky.

    I was listening to a video about Garabandal last week, and was surprised how the children were told Bishops would be against Bishops and Cardinals against Cardinals, and also how confusion would enter the Church. The children were also told Church leaders would lead many astray, even to perdition. I wonder how many apostates will suffer damnation before all this apostasy is over. We have to admit, this has come about much to our dismay these days. We need to 'Keep Watch and Pray.'

    I also believe it was the message about the Church ministers leading many to perdition that caused the Bishops in the Garabandal diocese to doubt its authenticity. Now we all know it is true. The Warning, the Miracle and the Chastisement which can be mitigated through prayer and fasting or penance is still not fulfilled. But I believe most people who read prophesies are convinced these three things will happen.

    God preserve us all and have Mercy on us all. Divine Mercy Chaplet is a must these days, as well as Holy Rosary.

    Thought everyone would like to hear the youtube channel from the Youthfest I attended last summer.

    Thank you all for bringing this topic up I have had an outpouring of the holy spirit going over some songs from the youth festival there! Maybe we can form a MOG forum pilgrimage!

    I am starting the process of planning just that! Here in my home town there is a man who has been leading pilgrimages for 20 years, many every year to Medjugorje. I could certainly start a new thread focused on that. I hope to meet with him next month to discuss a more definitive itinerary. Depending on the interest I find locally: friends, one of my choirs, I'll decide if I want to extend it here.

    My thought is definitely including a stop in Lourdes, somewhere in Europe in which the Eucharistic Miracle is adored as well as Medjugorje. Another thought is, depending on timing, if there is interest on MOG and someone else wants to take that project on, perhaps we could collaborate timing and actually meet there. I would love to meet fellow MOG members.

    I am hoping at this point to go in March 2019. That is the low season for travel in general, lower prices.

    I think I would enjoy going to Ireland since flights are cheap from there. Ive also always wanted to go to Garabandal as well.
