Major move expected on Medjugorje front…

Reported by Croatia media sources is the news that the Vatican has already arrived at a solution that recognises the importance of Medjugorje to the Church and that the tree bearing good fruit in abundance is to be protected.

Currently the bishop of the Mostar-Duvno diocese is in Rome and on the table for discussion is the partition of his diocese which could see the parish of Medjugorje come under a new bishopric. Apparently a decision has been reached and an announcement is anticipated later this year.

However, such a move would not be an endorsement of the claimed apparitions but could be seen as a possible step forward to Medjugorje being granted international shrine status by the Holy See.

The diocese of Mostar-Duvno was formed on July 5, 1881 – 100 years before Our Lady first appeared in Medjugorje on June 24, 1981 The seat of the bishopric is in the Cathedral of Mary the Mother of the Church! The first two bishops of the Mostar-Duvno diocese were Franciscans and they were in charge of the diocese for 61 years!
