Bishop and exorcist Mons Andrea Gemma on Medjugorje says:
It is an absolutely diabolical event, around which numerous underworld interests revolve …
I’m referring to ‘the Devil’s dung’, to money, what else? At Medjugorje everything happens for the sake of money: pilgrimages, overnight stays, the sales of trinkets. In this way, abusing the good faith of the poor people who go there with the idea of meeting the Madonna, the false seers have set themselves up financially, they have married and live a wealthy life, to say the least.
When Our Lady first allegedly appeared to the six youths in 1981, she reportedly told them she would only appear three more times.
She has since appeared, according to the alleged visionaries, 47,000 more times.
Local religious authorities who have studied the alleged apparitions and their effect on its devotees have uniformly said what Bishop Peric of the Mostar diocese again said recently:
Considering everything that this diocesan chancery has so far researched and studied, including the first seven days of alleged apparitions, we can say: There have been no apparitions of Our Lady of Medjugorje.
In addition to the bishop, I know of at least one priest who went there initially believing it, and who is now convinced that it is not merely human fraud (though there is that too) but diabolical deception going on. I think so too.
Trust in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, not in this fraud.
