    I find it incredible that even after the local ordinary has made a decision that certain groups continue in disobedience. I hop that pope Francis will soon make his final decision on the matter. I long to hear Peter’s voice to put this case to rest once and for all, regardless of whether it is in favour of the apparitions or not. God can write just as well with crooked lines if He wishes.

    OUR Lady said it best, as did Jesus. A tree is known by its fruits.
    You can take that either way of course.
    Faustina was put on the “banned books” for 20 years from 1958 to 1978 and Jesus was behind that apparition. The truth will out in the end. For now let the people go to Medjugorje and pray and fast for world peace. I have to laugh at Cardinal Mullers statement, though I am sure he is a great person and very intelligent. He used the phrase “take it for granted”. I looked it up. It means without questioning it. I questioned it for a year and came to the firm belief and even knowledge that Our Lady Queen of Peace is appearing in Medjugorje. Since I questioned it big time before I spent a year discerning it true (in 1987) then, Cardinal Muller’s directive does not prevent me from going to hear Ivan talk. I did not take it for granted. I don’t think he meant it that way.
    Pope John Paul II believed it. That’s good enough for me.

    I was also skeptical of these apparitions. However a priest who had been there once showed me a Video of the Miracle of the Son and the Blessed Sacrament that was recorded by one of the people on pilgrimage with him. It was truly incredible how the son and the host moved around in the sky. I thought maybe it was doctored at first but the priest assured me it was not. I mentioned this later to a lady who I knew had also been there already and she told me that she was the one that had taken the Video( no DVD’S yet). She told me she had seen the sun dancing in the sky and the host moving around as well so she rushed and grabbed her video recording machine to record the event. I have known this lady for years and her integrity is unquestionable. NOW the proof of Fatima was borne out by the Miracle of the sun as proof of Our Lady’s appearance in Portugal. So if its good enough for Fatima it should be good enough for Medjugorje whatever anybody may think. It is clearly Heavenly approval that Our Blessed Mother has appeared there despite what is decided. Whether she appears there on a regular basis one does not know but that she has appeared is in my mind now unquestionable unless one thinks the movie was hoax- which it definitely wasn’t.
    IF Our Blessed Mother wants to appear as she has who are we to question it and I certainly would not like to be the one to stand in her way.

    The problem there is also one of jealousies between the local clergy which has not helped matters.

    As far as I remember Our Lady said – “Do whatever he tells you”. I still believe that if a local ordinary has made his decision, it should be honored until such time that he retracts it. All those who received messages from Our Lady were obedient to their ordinaries, but these seers are not.
