I know my last post was taken as controversial and I didn’t intend it to be that way, I am sorry if people got the wrong end of the stick about me or the post- anyway I have truly a genuine question.
Next Wednesday I am going to Medjugorje for 8 days, I am going because a friend of mine who is very into it invited me to go with her- she has been a number of times, I have never been there and a kind friend of mine from the parish has paid for my trip. I booked the Pilgrimage through my friend and I am looking forward to going there and to Croatia and Bosnia. I am going there with an open mind and heart. The local Dean (Priest in charge of all the Parishes in the area) is a supporter and has lead several Pilgrimages, my own Parish Priest has advertised this trip.
I just genuinely want to know what people think about it? I would mainly like to hear from people who have been. I know it is not officially recognised and the Vatican is still investigating, and that many clerics and Cardinals have urged people not to go there- remember that this also happened at Fatima, people were told not to go there during the apparitions yet they went in their thousands and look what happened. Has anyone on here been there and had a dramatic experience or a conversion? It has been called the largest Confessional on earth and it is said thousands of people have been reconciled there, I am making no statement about visions or anything- I am honestly asking. I am inclined to say I do believe it, but I will know for sure when I experience it. I don’t believe that all those conversions and Confessions can come from something bad or evil.
I am just genuinely asking for peoples advice, opinions and experiences on it?
