Periodically, people will write to me, wondering why I don’t post about the alleged apparitions in the former Yugoslavia.
I have a couple reasons.
First, as a member of the clergy, I don’t believe that I should be endorsing unapproved Marian apparitions.
And secondly: I keep coming across essays like this one.
I know many devout people who are true believers. But as for me: I’ll await the judgment of the Holy See.
UPDATE: For those who really want to delve into the subject, a priest friend sent this article my way, a fairly comprehensive dissection by Michael Davies. Also: check out this terrific archive of documents and articles maintained by Diane Korzeniewski, who also runs the Te Deum blog.
