Visions of Fatima

Over at Catholic Exchange there is a series of articles written by Dorothea and Wolfgang Koch about Fátima. They are focusing upon the artwork of the Dominican Friar Fr. Thomas McGlynn who sculpted the statue of Our Lady of Fátima that adorns the facade of the original Basilica in Fátima.

There is, however, a fact of Fr. McGlynn’s life that is not very well known.* When the Carmelites of Coimbra, Portugal published their biography of Sr. Lúcia, they revealed to the world a previously hidden fact.

Reply to Denis Nolan on Medjugorje and Vlasic

Medjugorje has been in the news as of late owing to the official excommunication of Tomislav Vlasic, formerly of the Franciscan Order.

In the 1980s, Sr. Briege McKenna is famously reported as having predicted that Vlasic would become involved in what is today referred to as the “Medjugorje Phenomenon.”

Last week, Denis Nolan of MaryTV, and a notable supporter of the Medjugorje Phenomenon, attempted to downplay Vlasic’s role in Medjugorje. Nolan argued that Vlasic was “never the spiritual director” of the alleged visionaries of Medjugorje.

This week, Nolan replies to an article over at Crisis that also similarly discussed Medjugorje in relation to the excommunicated Tomislav Vlasic.

Here, however, is a mystery:
Nolan has just run afoul of the “Gospa” of Medjugorje.

The “Gospa” herself stated on February 28, 1982, “Thank Tomislav very much, for he is guiding you very well.”

How will Nolan reconcile this statement of the “Gospa” with Vlasic’s history as well as Nolan’s own statements?
