In the book published by editions Loyola in 2014, in an interview with Father Alexander Awi Mello, Pope Francis rejects any hypothesis that one has apparitions of Our Lady.
On pages 235 and and 236 Pope spends his personal opinion about the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje:Another version via Microsoft Translate:
"In relation to Medjugorje," the Pope Francis continues, "I forbid that a meeting did while we were here at the Conclave. So they knew I did not agree. " He (the Pope) explained to me that one of the Medjugorje visionaries would be in the Archdiocese for a meeting would happen in a church. Then he told me why he had opposed the meeting, without, however, issue an opinion on the authenticity of the apparition:
"F iz this because one of the visionaries would speak and give some explanations and then at four-thirty Our Lady would appear! That is, it has the agenda of Our Lady! So I told them, no; look, that kind of thing I do not want here. He said no. Not in the Church "the Pope concludes reinforcing below:
"But we must distinguish that in Medjugorje, God makes miracles, you know? So in the midst of human follies, God continues working miracles, is not it? Maybe there are more personal phenomena. Reach me some letters, but you see that are more psychological issues ... We have to distinguish good things ... "
At another time, when we were already walking the Apostolic Palace, Francisco returned to the subject, as if the question were working inside: "The theme of the apparitions, to be clear. Try to see the side of the locution. So, as I said, it will be from one extreme to another. Sometimes this phrase almost physically embodies a vision and can sometimes be mere inspiration, "says the Pope seeking concepts to express what you think about these phenomena. "For example," he continues, "those people who feel that Our Lady tells you something has a voiceover in prayer and then said: Our Lady told me that ... Of course. They express in a way that it seems that it appeared to them ... But to that seers are protagonists and organize a scheduled appearances ... this is the sin that can accompany a great grace. "
