John Allen has repoted in the National Catholic Reporter that Bishop Peric, whose diocese includes Medjugorje, recenlty met with Pope Benedict and both of them appear convinced that Medjugorje is a fraud.

What continues to be troubling is that so many are buying into (literally) this nonsense. It is even promoted from the pulpit at some churches, and Cardinal Mahony has permitted The Tidings to run advertisements to pilmigrages there when such trips are expressly forbidden by Rome. Additionally, at the REC online session in 1997 Mahony had this exchange with a questioner:

Question: Your Eminence, what is the official position of the church on the alleged apparitions in Medjugorje and do you have a personal opinion about this?

Rmccd: No, there are many places around the world where much grace is obviously present and being poured out upon people. Whether there are actual revelations or not is not important.

What a bunch of garbage! Mahony whines about how Bishops and their territorial rights need to be repsected, but he deliberately undermines one of his fellow bishops by not toeing the Vatican line!

Heaven help us!
