Medjugorje is a fraud (doo dah! doo dah!).

No. Seriously. Go here for somebody who has done their homework. And stick with what the local bishop says: Bishop Peric: From his homily in 2006 at the Church in Medjugorje: “Therefore I responsibly call upon those who claim themselves to be “seers”, as well as those persons behind the “messages”, to demonstrate ecclesiastical obedience [Read More...]

Fake Confirmations

More of that great “fruit” of the fraud at Medjugorje. Stay as far away as you can from that dog and pony show.  It’s a lie. [Read more...]

Medjugorje is a Fraud

One of the marks of the fraud is that so many of its apologists say that skeptics (that is, people who listen to the bishops who have spoken to the question) have to shut up till Rome speaks, while they themselves are free to go on promoting it.  The sensible thing, of course, is for [Read More...]

Don’t Get Snookered by Phony Apparitions

Whether in Ohio, or in Medjugorje. The report from the Vatican’s Commission is, according to some, due to be handed to the Pope at the end of the month, but (according to others) not. No word when we will hear what’s in it. However, I am morally certain it’s simply going to ratify the warnings [Read More...]

Fr. Mitch Pacwa…

tries to break it to Medjugorje fans gently. [Read more...]

Another Reason to Listen to the Bishops Responsible for Medjugorje…

…and not the fraudulent “visionaries”:  The Poem of the Man God, which “Mary” allegedly recommends, but the Church put on the Index of Forbidden Books in 1960. But the Index is abolished!  Yes, but that doesn’t mean it’s evaluation was wrong, merely that the Church is past the point of trying to micromanage what crap [Read More...]

Ultrasounds and Medjugorje

When we were expecting our first son I discovered something I’d never thought of before. When they do the ultrasound, if the US tech says, after checking out baby, “Would you like to know the sex of your child?” that means “It’s a boy.” How do you know? Because it means the techie definitely saw [Read More...]

Getcher Blessed Voigin Mary! Now Appearing for a Limited Time!

Who could possibly be dubious about a banner ad like that?  The long-running hit show, now in its 31st Church-defying year! It seems one of the Medjugorje frauds was making a limited time offer visit to Alabama and so the Blessed Virgin was booked to appear while she was there. Of course, there’s some question [Read More...]

Medjugorje is a Fraud

Al Kresta adds more testimony to the mountain of reasons why you should stay far away from this fraud. And Rome will soon add its voice to that of the unbroken testimony of every local ordinary to address the fraud  there, reiterating yet again that nothing supernatural is occurring there. In short, Mary is not [Read More...]

Wait! But… you said… how can… what?!

That’s the response I anticipate as I link to Fr. Dwight Longenecker’s account of seeing the sun spin at Medjugorje, in which he registers his (understandably) more favorable view of the claimed apparitions there. Why do I link it when I am obviously skeptical about the claims being made for a Marian apparitions there? Several [Read More...]
