Were you to talk with the visionaries, and see their radiant faces, you would know that they talk with the Blessed Virgin.

The Bishop of Mostar, Bishop Zanic, whose diocese includes Medjugorje, vehemently disagrees. And the Vatican has said there is no basis from which to conclude that the apparitions are genuine.

However, if they inspire prayer from you, that is a good thing.

Bishop Zanic has admitted that he is "marian". He has gone to Lourdes and one other apparition site (I believe). If he were an "evil" bishop, he would have everything to gain by promoting this site, think of the money he could take in, but no, he isn't doing that.

I have witnessed very bad fruits from Medjugorie first hand, the disobedience to the Bishop is at the top of the list, and I have also seen contradictions with the visionaries.

I absolutely do not believe in Medjugorie anymore. There are hundreds of approved apparitions, why risk believing in one that is not approved. Fatima and the Divine Mercy are enough for me.
