Bishop Gemma on Medjugorje: "Absolutely diabolical"

Bishop Gemma on Medjugorje: "Absolutely diabolical"

Post  Guest on Wed Apr 13, 2011 9:20 pm

From a 2008 interview:

Bishop Andrea Gemma on Medjugorje: "Absolutely diabolical"
So, Excellency, how do you define Medjugorje?

"It is an absolutely diabolical event, around which numerous underworld interests revolve. The Holy Church, which alone can make a pronouncement, through the words of the Bishop of Mostar, has already said publicly and officially that the Madonna never appeared in Medjugorje and that this whole production is the work of the Devil."

I have some friends that had conversions through Medjegorge (one is a E.E.N.S.-er as well), and while they submit to the authority of the Church in the matter, they would be offended by this. I have not really studied the issue but my take on it was it might have started off well but gotten corrupted. There were a lot of conversions through it.

I wonder at which point those heretical messages about the holiest woman being a muslim or all religions being pleasing to God came. Did they come in the beginning or later on when it became more of a commercialized thing?

I think it is kind of rash to call it "absolutely diabolical." That seems just as rash as those people who used to pretend it was approved by the Church when it wasn't. I mean I don't like what went on with the Legionaries of Christ but I couldn't call them "absolutely diabolical" in good conscience.

When we are not dealing with matters of Dogma, there are grey areas. My attitude is, whether Med. was true or not does not have much bearing on anything. I focus on Dogma not private apparitions. All this hoopla about Medjegorge, why are people not talking about the Miracle of Lanciano or the Miracle of Calanda?

Bishop Gemma is my kind of prelate! No sidestepping the issues... his yes is yes and his no is no...we don't have to spend hours and days trying to figure out what he meant by what he said.

As for conversions, everyone talks about "fruits" - we have many Baysiders where I live, and they say the same thing. I once spoke to someone from Necedah, and they claimed conversions and the persecution of Mary Ann Van Hoof as marks of authenticity of the insanity in Wisconsin.

I agree. Too many people place too much importance on apparitions and make them the focal point of their "Catholicity". The Baysiders I know would follow what Veronica Leuken said even if the Magisterium of the Church told them the opposite.
So would these "Gospa" followers. And whatever you do, don't step on their pet apparition; they are a mean bunch. Now that's not a good fruit!

why are people not talking about the Miracle of Lanciano . . . ?

Indeed. Good point. That's one that I believe science has, if not validated, at least found out some very interesting stuff supportive of the miracle.

Not familiar with that other miracle, but I'm off to find out.
