Medjugorje
#51
Where, oh where, are the Medjugorie-ites to defend their travesty?  I felt so sure that they would show up...they always do.  I am convinced that they have some kind of radar set up for anti-Medj threads on the internet.  They create such a headache for most bloggers, that the threads always get locked down, so carried away they get.  :pretzel:

....

The link above struck me as too bizarre to be true. 
One among many examples:
"Eventually the Church expressed its gratitude for von Balthasar’s contributions to theology and faith by issuing him the Vatican’s prestigious Paul VI Prize in theology. "  That seems like conferring on Adam Sandler the Pee Wee Herman Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Then I realized, the article was written on April 1st.  So, maybe this is a joke? 

No joke, sad to say. Pope JP II was going to make von Balthasar a Cardinal, but von Balthasar died before that could be done.

Check out the blog I posted in response # 17 on this thread, and read some of the comments by the defenders of this false apparition. They are the equivalent of Tom Cruise defending Scientology.

Also, Fr. Tomislav Vlasic was condemned by the CDF back in 2008 (he's the spiritual leader of the "seers" and chief promoter of this movement.) One could say that Fr. Vlasic has gotten himself into a pickle.

I have seen that before, but thank you for reminding me. Just one of the many cases against the 'apparition'

I wondered the same thing myself.  I'm happy but surprised to see the voting remaining at 100%.  :)

So glad you posted that. I first heard of this incident from Fr. Malachi Martin in one of his interviews with Bernard Janzen, but had never come across the footage. Wonderful expose. I wish he had made the comparison with St. Bernadette, who had a candle held up to her during the apparition and gave no reaction.

When an Uncle died, she ran in, put on one of his shirts, and put on his boots (he was a pig farmer so they were really gross) and ran outside in the rain, dancing and singing the praises of "Mama Medjugorje" and shouting to the heavens that this man, who was an atheist, was now with her in heaven.  She would be there soon with them to dance with them like the sun in Medjugorje.  If only we would open our minds and hearts we would all be saved in the light of "Mama Medjugorje".

Sorry, my mind is closed on this one.  She was a wonderful mother of 6, sweet, and intelligent before the trip.  Afterwards  :cuckoo:

Very sad. If Medjugorje has a diabolical origin, and is not just a fraud, your cousin might be under some kind of--how would you say--some malignant spirit may have some kind of attachment to her. Have you consulted a good priest about it? Granted, people go crazy all the time for no reason at all, but considering the circumstances, and that we don't know if it's diabolical or just a fraud, you might want to consult with a priest.

Don't look now, there's a turd in the punchbowl.  Who voted for the charade known as Medjugorje?  ??? :doh:  Fess up!  :sneaky:

"We started Wednesday & Friday bread and water fasting year round in our house from the suggestion of "Our Lady" at Medjugorje."

Well, the sacrifice was in good faith even if the reasons for starting it weren't.
