Just as the title read: A reminder about Medjugorje.
We were prompted to publish this
reminder after we read the following news about a very important
Pro-Gay Cardinal Finds it
“Touching” That Homosexuals

find it touching that same-sex couples desire to get married", Vienna
pro-gay Cardinal Christoph Schönborn told the leftwing German
magazine Stern (January 30)....
Schönborn added that “we have
long accepted” that the State has admitted gay pseudo-marriage, "If a
parliamentary majority wants it, please let the State do it like this."
This contradicts the June 2003
Vatican document signed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger according to which
“all Catholics are obliged to oppose the legal recognition of

then we also read that...
Medjugorje visionary Ivan Dragicevic's
apparition for November 17 in the Cathedral of Vienna will be
live-streamed over the Internet? (1)
According to Ivan, the Virgin Mary will bless all online viewers who
pray along and follow the apparition, as if they had been physically
present. Religious items brought next to the computer will also be
A six-digit number of people from all over the world will be praying in
front of their computers when Medjugorje visionary Ivan Dragicevic's
apparition on November 17 in Vienna, Austria, is being live-streamed in
English and Spanish by MaryTV, and in German by Kathnet.
The Mass after Ivan’s apparition will be presided over by Cardinal
. Last year the Cardinal welcomed the
Marija, dear Ivan, thank you – first of all – that you
came! Thank you that you came again! Thank you for your service
across so many years, for your work, for your service of being
messengers of Our Lady. You bring us – children of this world,
children of humanity – her love and her presence and may God pay you
back one hundred fold for what you are doing tirelessly!”
The final result of the Vatican
Commission on Medjugorje will certainly be advantageous, says Cardinal
Christoph Schönborn of Vienna who openly expresses his
that the Virgin Mary does appear in Medjugorje.(2)
and as if that were not enough we read
Cardinal Christoph Schönborn
of Vienna not only believes that the
apparitions in Medjugorje are real. He also believes that the final
conclusions of the Vatican Commission assigned to investigate the
events at Medjugorje will end up serving Medjugorje very well.
Fr. Gabriele Amorth, chief exorcist for
the Diocese of Rome throughout the years has embraced Medjugorje, and
he has called the place "a great fortress against Satan". (3)
Ignoring the apparitions in Medjugorje is unforgivable for Christians,
says Rome’s leading exorcist who shakes his head at those who wait
until the Church has ruled. Speaking of "betrayal" Fr. Gabriele Amorth
also lashes out at bishops and priests for being indifferent to the
fruits of Medjugorje.
By willingly failing to pay attention to the Virgin Mary's apparitions
in Medjugorje, a great number of Christians have proven to be no
different from pagans. Within this great number, both bishops and
priests are included, the leading Catholic exorcist of the past 20
years said in a September 15 interview given to Radio Maria.
Portugal comments: As we have said many times before, the
Faithful are being set up to be manipulated through the no-longer-valid
apparitions of Medjugorje.
Following is a reprint of a column we
originally published in January 2010.
The Viennese Cardinal Schönborn
continues to promote Medjugorje and now compares it to Lourdes, while
calling it 'a school of normal Christian life'. (1)
The cardinal said that the alleged messages of Medjugorje
are not as important as the prayer that takes place there,
including Eucharistic adoration, the Way of the Cross, Confession, and
the daily praying of the entire Psalter. "In order to doubt that into
Medjugorje a stream of grace flows, one must shut one's eyes,"
he added, comparing Medjugorje to Lourdes as a place where hearts are
Also comparing the Church's caution towards the alleged apparitions to
the Church's caution towards St. Faustina, the cardinal stated that the
"personal reliability" of the witnesses, the sensus fidelium, and the
charitable works associated with Medjugorje are "surely an important
"What does one learn from the Mother of God? The faith in everyday
life! For me Medjugorje is a school of normal Christian
Comments: This is a reckless outrage. We
remind our readers about our position about Medjugorje:
was from God at the beginning but when it was turned into just another
business to be exploited using the Holy Names of Mary and Jesus, it was
no more. That is why we say that we agree with the local Bishops
at the beginning - when it was accepted as being from God - and also
afterwards - when it was denied as a farce.
The man who became miguel de Portugal visited Medjugorje in the second
half of the eighties and it was not until he broke away from the
tourist scene, which pervaded the whole area, that he reestablished
contact with the supernatural which could be felt in that once holy
But before "we get misty eyed" let us have a reality check about that
"stream of graces" which allegedly flows from Medjugorje.
What was one of the first teachings that Mary imparted at the very
beginning? On July 21, 1982, She is reported to have said (and repeated
fasting and prayer, one can stop wars, one can suspend the laws of
It was in 1987 - six years after the first Marian manifestation there -
when the winds of war started to blow in the Federal Republic Of
- where Medjugorje was located. Essentially the Milosevic era started
and the rest is history... a bloody war history still being worked out
in the World Tribunal at The Hague.
Then we must pose the following:
Mary lied or the millions upon millions that visited Medjugorje prior
to the Milosevic era were no more than religious tourists who took home
with them little more than their dirty laundry and a few souvenirs.
Of course Mary did not lie! What She said was and is true and we know
believe it, but know it from much actual practice). Obviously, as we
have seen far too many times, once home most the new "converts" were
only converted.... to Religious Tourism! Prayer, fasting (if they even
tried it!) and sacrifice came to almost a standstill.
The same story with Kibeho, Africa. (4)
Mary appeared there in 1981, it was approved in 1982.
One of the visionaries saw:
"A river of blood, people who killed one
another, abandoned bodies with no one to bury them, a tree on fire, an
open chasm, a monster and decapitated heads.
This awful vision was the only one of its kind. In the rest of the
apparitions, Our Lady, who had dark skin, encouraged the young women to pray, fast, and do penance.
Thirteen years later the world was shocked with the Rwandan genocide.
Why did it happened? After all, obviously Mary had tried to avert it.
It happened for the same reason as with the situation in
Yugoslavia/Medjugorje - Talk
is cheap and easy
and frankly we are tired of it! Fasting,
Prayer and Sacrifice, although free, are hard and require devotional
The bottom line, brethren, is that the Vatican could not care less
about what is going on as long as the Faithful have something to
entertain themselves with, so that they do not pay attention to the
less-than-holy activities of the Church Administration (like the
preparation for the False Second Coming).
Let us now rewind all the way to the year 911 AD and let us see what happens when the
Faithful truly obey our Heavenly Mother
In 911 AD, Constantinople was under
military threat and the people were praying for God's help in the
Blachernae Church in the suburb of the city. It was in this church that
the omophor or veil of the Virgin Mary was reserved as a most
The church was crowded for an all-night
vigil. Andrew, the future Saint known as a fool-for-Christ, was there,
along with his disciple Epiphanius. At about four in the morning,
Andrew and Epiphanius had a vision of the Virgin Mary: She entered
through the church doors, escorted by St. John the Forerunner and St.
John the Theologian and preceded by a host of angels.
She stopped at the ambo (the
great stair-cased pulpit in the center of the church) and knelt there,
praying fervently and with tears. She then entered the altar and prayed
again and finally removed Her veil and held it out over the faithful as
She ascended from them.
They concluded from Her presence that Her
intercession would be the protection to the faithful in this hour of
trial. And so it happened that the feared military menace was averted.
This Miraculous Manifestation and happy
consequences are celebrated by the Eastern Catholic Church on October
In conclusion: Cardinal or no Cardinal; Benedict or no Benedict; Church
Administration or no Church Administration; Apparitions or no
Apparitions - either the Faithful
quits talking and starts praying and fasting in earnest, or Divine Mercy will be unattainable for most.
If we are more than fed up with cheap talk, think about how God feels
Do you think our words are harsh? They are not at all when compared
God will allow (allow, not
cause) upon humanity to wake up the few who need to be
You doubt it? Think again - while you still can!
God allowed World War II because all that would
out of the Church Administration, regarding the Fatima events, was
cheap talk - the only
thing that they are capable of.
