Get ready for Pope Francis to put an end to the fraud of Medjugorje

Three Popes, the local Ordinaries, all in unison against the constant disobedience and rebellion against the legitimate Authorities of the Church. While the CDF is preparing a formal ruling on the matter of the "apparitions" at Medjugorje, now now have this from the Supreme Pontiff: 

Purported visions of Mary, if taken in the wrong spirit, can sow confusion and distance people from the Gospel, Pope Francis has said.
Curiosities distance people “from the Gospel, from the Holy Spirit, from peace and hope, from God’s glory and God’s beauty,” the Pope said during a homily at morning Mass in the Vatican guesthouse.
“Jesus says that the kingdom of God doesn’t come in a way that attracts attention,” the Pope said, according to a report by Vatican Radio.
Pope Francis reflected on the day’s Gospel reading from Luke (17:20-25), in which the Pharisees ask Jesus when the kingdom of God will come.
Jesus answers that the “coming of the Kingdom of God cannot be observed”, and tells his disciples not to “run in pursuit” of signs of his Second Coming.
“Curiosity pushes us to want to hear that the Lord is here or over there, or it makes us say, ‘Well, I know a visionary who receives letters from Our Lady, messages from Our Lady,’” the Pope said. But Mary is “not a postmaster of the post office sending out messages every day”.

Perhaps we can wait until the appropriate authorities make a final pronouncement before we do? This is the sort of speculation that you would castigate the mainstream media for indulging in.

Actually, this follows directly on Archbishop Mueller's letter to the |US bishops regarding these so-called apparitions...

WELL, I had read that Pope John Paul II loved Medjugorje so much that he sent his shoes there because he couldn't go himself. Also that when the Yugoslavian bishops were about to condemn the Medjugorje apparitions in 1991, he adroitly stopped it. But maybe it's time to stop the apparitions, so the Church can study it. Because I was always told the reason they came up with no definitive statement on it was because they needed to wait until the apparitions stopped. However, I checked with my friends at "To Jesus Through Mary" on Facebook (Montfort group), and they said there is a group on the Medjugorje fringe called Maria Divine Mercy, which is saying that Pope Benedict is the last real pope and Pope Francis is not. They warned me this is a very bad group! I avoid reading messages entirely because if you do you have to follow them! The only thing I can say is over the years I have known so very many people who experienced conversions because of a trip to Medjugorje. But I will await the Church's statement on the matter, of course. God bless you. Susan Fox
