Why include “despite personal skepticism”? Did Mr. Voris speak with Pope Francis?
Did Pope Francis include language confirming his “skepticism” in his announcement lifting the ban of official trips to Medjugorje? No, he did not. He simply added more “study” into the apparitions would be ongoing.
Yes, Pope Francis has said many things about Medjugorje in the PAST, including words that project “skepticism”. But the news now is that Pope Francis has made a historical announcement that allows Catholic parishes to officially organize pilgrimages to Medjugorje.
Has it occurred to Mr. Voris that perhaps Pope Francis has reviewed the Medjugorje investigative commission’s findings in-depth and has discussed Medjugorje with his team of experts? Pope Francis didn’t just wake up one morning and say “Yes, despite all my personal doubts, let’s lift the ban of pilgrimages to Medjugorje.”
The decision to allow trips to Medjugorje while the apparitions are ongoing is historic and unprecedented and was made with careful consideration including evidence from the five-year investigation. Mr. Voris, on the other hand, relies on information he gets cruising the internet.
Because Mr. Voris has been so consistently wrong and negative that he can’t see the truth – his towering ego gets in the way of looking at plain facts.
Is Michael Voris the Rachal Maddow of Catholic news. Ms. Maddow’s ego refuses to surrender to the facts and she still stands by her narrative that Trump “colluded” with the Russians.
In a similar way, Mr. Voris has been so beholden to his narrative that Medjugorje is a fraud that the egomaniac can’t bring himself to admit he is wrong.
He owes many devout Catholic a sincere apology.
