Predicting the decision on Medjugorje with common sense
By Fr. George David Byers
I’m still on retreat for another while, but I couldn’t resist putting this up.
Although I’m on retreat, it happens that I was speaking at length to a Lebanese nun, though not by bilocation, though not on the phone either. And, no, she’s not on Holy Souls Mountain! It happens.
Anyway, she said that Pope Benedict XVI instituted a new feast called “Our Lady of Peace”, which, mind you, I haven’t googled, nor do I intend to do so. That takes place, if I remember correctly, on 25 June or roundabouts.
The instant I heard that I thought that that means that the decision about Medjugorje will be negative, and that this is a way to demonstrate that our Holy Father and the Church don’t hate our Lady. And… really… they love Jesus’ Immaculate Mother. If it was to be a positive decision, it seems that one would wait for saying something about such a memorial of our Lady.
Then she said that the decision about Medjugorje is scheduled for this coming November, 2012. We knew it would be before the end of the year. This is more precise.
I bounced this off a most reasonable, faithful friend, and he said that this absolutely means without any doubt whatsoever that the decision about Medjugorje will be negative... (continued)
