Medjugorje bishop: reported apparitions "are not credible" [CWN]

Bishop Ratko Peric of Mostar-Duvno, in whose diocese Medjugorje is located, has issued a public statement repeating his insistence that “there have been no apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje.”


in 99, 10 of us went on pilgrimage to Medjugorje. The visionary’s house where the visions took place, was less than 20 yards away down the street from where we were staying. One afternoon, at the time of the visions, the 10 of us were sitting in the backyard of the family we were staying with, at a table praying the rosary. All of us were bathed in a bright gold light during the time the vision was taking place. We looked at each other and we were ALL completely bathed in that gold light. When the apparition was over, the gold light around all of us immediately ended. All of us felt hugely blessed.
