Pope Francis on Medjugorje: “People go there and find God, lives change. This is a spiritual and pastoral fact that cannot be denied…These apparitions generate countless conversions, something that also has to be taken into account.”

POPE FRANCIS:

“There are people who go to Medjugorje and convert, people find God, lives change. And this is not thanks to a magic wand, this is a spiritual and pastoral fact that cannot be denied. Now with all of these results, and with the responses that the theologians sent me, a bishop was appointed- very good, very good, because he has experience- to see how the pastoral part goes. At the end he will say something.”



During the return flight from Fatima, Pope Francis explained his thoughts regarding the possible appearances that are occurring and stirring much conversation today: Medjugorje.
He explained that he was given the results of a detailed analysis done by the Vatican on Medjugorje. A commission led by Cardinal Camillo Ruini, it proposes to distinguish between the first apparitions, which happened more than 30 years ago, and the ones still occurring today.
POPE FRANCIS
“Regarding the first apparitions, when ‘the visionaries’ were children, the report more or less says that it has to continue to be investigated. Surrounding the alleged actual apparitions, the report has it doubts. I personally am more negative:  I prefer the Virgin Mary as a mother, our mother, not as head of a post office that sends a message every day at a specific time, this is not the mother of Jesus. And these alleged appearances do not have much value. This I say as personal opinion.”
Pope Francis also emphasized that these apparitions generate countless conversions, something that also has to be taken into account.

    Yo creo que estas apariciones son reales. Soy colombiana y vivo en Rhode Island, USA, desde 1970.
    En 1986, me enterè de las apariciones en Mejugorje, por un folleto que mi hermana enferma encontrò en el, pasillo de un hospital. Como estaba escrito en Inglès, me pidiò lo tradunera. Yo dudè de la veracidad de lo que estaba leyendo, porque jamàs habia escuchado nada al respecto. Me dediquè a buscar informaciòn y sobre todo a conseguir el video de una de las primeras apariciones que mencionaaban en el folleto. No conseguì nada, pero una noche, mi hija de cuatro años estaba durmiendo y se despertò y me pidiò que prendiera el televisor en determinado canal. Yo no le hice caso, pero minutos màs tarde despertò nuevamente a decirme lo mismo. Intrigada por su pedido le hice caso y puso el televisor en el canal 43 (EWTN) yo no sabìa de la existencia de ese canal pero para mi sorpresa, en ese momento estaban mostrando el video de las apariciones que hacìa meses yo estaba buscando.
    Esto me impactò mucho. Tanto, que para no creer en ellas tendrìa que dejar de creer en la Santìsima Virgen Marìa. Despuès de eso me han ocurrido muchas cosas, que no las cuento porque seguramente no me creerìan.

    This report seems very confusing, rather contradictory. Why would you feel the need to differentiate between the early apparitions and the apparitions still occurring? It seems that they think only apparitions to children as history has shown is more authentic and that apparitions to adults is something more likely to be tampered with. Umm I wonder.
