We are booking a flight and hotel this month. Have you ever been? If so what was your experience?
Does this constitute a violation of the forum rule forbidding the discussion of unapproved apparitions?
I am not going to discuss unapproved apparitions , but I will just say that I have been to Medjugorje three times and found it to be a refreshingly Catholic place .
I think this may apply if I mentioned Emmitsburg or Bayside? But catholics are not prohibited at this time for making a pilgrimage to Medjugorije.
The apapriations which are happening at Medjugorje are unapproved, and we are not allowed to discuss unapproved apparitions here.
Pope Francis just sent a vatican offical over there recently to help oversee the pastoral care of pilgrims.
That doesn’t mean the apparitions are approved.
Ok. Thank you semper_catholicus for your comments
Such as ???
Perhaps you should have discussed Hallowe’en .
That is approved .
How often did they do adoration there. Is it every evening or something like That? And they have like 50 confessionals right?
Happy Travels and show us pictures! I almost went a few years back
I went late 80s and early 90s . Then some confessionals had been made , but most of the Confesssions took place in the open air and just kneeling next to a priest .
This is the timetable which gives you more information .
Wow. That must have been an interesting time to go. And a little dangerous too! So you went toward the beginning of everything happening.
No it was before the Bosnian war , and the “things” we are not allowed to mention began in 1981 .
Thread is getting off track when you get into content of apparitions as opposed to just travel advice.
Telling them not to go is travel advice.
do you know people who have gone? I know an ex abortionist who has gone more than once and is now a fervent Catholic. I know a few others whose lives have been touched by Our Lady and Her Son there.
Nice summary of the Church’s opinion:
This stands out: ““no cleric or faithful may participate in any meetings, conferences, or public celebrations in which the authenticity of the apparitions are taken for granted.””
