Medjugorje Reminder “First Seven Apparitions Are Authentic” …Vatican Commission Votes Overwhelmingly that Events Were Supernatural

The commission established by Pope Benedict XVI to study the alleged apparitions of Mary at Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, reportedly voted overwhelmingly to recognise as supernatural the first seven appearances of Mary in 1981.

However, according to a report published by the website Vatican Insider, the commission was much more doubtful about the thousands of alleged visions that have occurred since July 4, 1981, and supposedly continue to this day.

Two of the 17 commission members and consultants thought the alleged visions after the period of June 24-July 3, 1981, were not supernatural, while the other members said it was not possible to make a judgment.

The commission said it was clear that the six alleged visionaries and a seventh who claims to have begun receiving messages from Mary in December 1982 were not given adequate spiritual support.

Vatican Insider published its piece on the report on May 16, three days after Pope Francis spoke about some details of the report to journalists travelling with him from Fatima, Portugal.

The spiritual fruits of the pilgrimages, he said, are the reason why in February he appointed Polish Archbishop Henryk Hoser of Warsaw-Praga to study the best ways to provide pastoral care to townspeople and the pilgrims.

According to Vatican Insider, 13 of the 14 commission members present at one meeting voted to recommend lifting the Vatican ban on official diocesan and parish pilgrimages to Medjugorje.

The commission also recommended turning the town’s parish church of St James into a pontifical shrine with Vatican oversight. The move, the commission said, would not signify recognition of the apparitions, but would acknowledge the faith and pastoral needs of the pilgrims while ensuring a proper accounting of the financial donations pilgrims leave.

  • How can they state that they believe only 7 Apparitions are real, they have poked and prodded these kids now adults for years. Just like the children of Fatima.
    To me, that is a slap in the face to Our Dear Blessed Mother and Her Beloved Son!!
    There has been nothing but GOOD FRUITS coming from Medjugorje!
    Where is their PROOF in thinking only 7 are authentic and the rest ARE NOT?
    They are either authentic or not, in my belief, they are 100% AUTHENTIC!!
    I’ve been there, I know numerous people that have been there, I have met 4 of the 6 visionaries, they are as genuine as the finest diamond on earth. Amen!

    • I agree Sally Maj, with my whole heart, I too have been to Medjugorje. 100% AUTHENTIC!
