And now a statement from the 'other side' of the Medjugorje debate

Here is an article that offers a counter position to the Medjugorje story that preceded this one.  I have never been there. I have read very little about it. It is not a part of my Marian piety or practice. I have little or no opinion on the subject... and there's no shortage of opinion to be found on the subject.


I offer this because a gentleman emailed me with a concern about my posting the initial story from the UK Mail. I trust he will accept that this article portrays the other side of the argument well.

  2. Thanks, Fr Tim. You’re right in saying that there is no shortage of opinion about Medjugorje. Thank God the Holy See is also deliberating on the phenomenon with the Commission it set up a year ago. It’s a place that attracts many priests, and there are hundreds of priests and religious that have provided documentation to present to the Commission testifying to the vocation they received through Medjugorje. For the 30th celebrations last month (June 25) 282 priests concelebrated Mass that evening.

    By the way, I live in the U.K. and I can testify that the UK Daily Mail is not the best friend of the Catholic Church.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
