Pope Benedict XVI and Medjugorje.
What do you guys make of this?

Quote:Pope Benedict XVI last week made worldwide headlines with his comments on condom use.

Yesterday the Pope made a surprise reference to yet another controversial subject - Medjugorje  The Holy See, two days ago in a talk to the general audience, specifically acknowledged the Medjugorje parish and he encouraged the faithful from Medjugorje to be "evangelizers of God’s love in your nation".  Not so surprising, the Catholic press, ignored the the Pope's reference to an event that has  moved millions of Catholics into a deeper relationship with Christ.

Close follower of events taking place in Medjugorje Bernard Gallagher from Crown of Stars Blog writes "This is an incredible acknowledgement by the Pope to make such a reference to the Medjugorje parish in this way."

Two days ago at the end of the general audience, during part of the greeting of groups in different languages, the Pope addressed the Croatian crowd of pilgrims: “I greet all Croatian pilgrims,and especially those from the parish of St James, Medjugorje! Your pilgrimage to Rome is part of the way of preparation for the coming of the Lord. Therefore, in hope, be evangelizers of God’s love in your nation. May God bless you.”
