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?
