I don’t know why you insist on trying to post a viewpoint about a Catholic subject when it seems you could use a little bit more background understanding.

Why is it that so many people who claim not to believe in the authority of the Catholic Church cling to the writings that were produced by members of the Catholic Church, used in the liturgy of the Catholic Church, collected by the Catholic Church, and defined by the Catholic Church to be inspired and inerrant?

” Just what are we to make of these pronouncements? First of all, they’re non-biblical, as these dogmas have absolutely no scriptural support.”

Precisely.

I suppose you have spoken to God, and he told you that.

Those apparitions predicted the start of World War II 30 years ahead of it, of which there is excellent documentation. You may want to look into that before passing judgement.

Also, Mariology does have a very strong basis in church tradition. We Catholics view sacred tradition as just as important as the bible. If “sola scriptura” was to be the entire basis of a religion why doesn’t it clearly say to rely only and exclusively on the bible anywhere in the bible?

Now, now. She was also spotted on a cheese sandwich:

And the owners were blessed by someone purchasing this for $10,000. If that isn't a miracle I don't know what is.

Your young men shall have visions and your old men shall dream dreams.

I have no problem with visions and dreams.

Are you God?

Having said that, it is possible that at least some of the Medjugorje apparitions - if anything supernatural occurred there at all - are not from God.

Approved apparitions are another matter.
