A little-appreciated fact of the Pontificate of Pope Paul VI is that from 1968 onward, his Wednesday General Audiences were published in English translation. During the course of my studies, I came across this fact and recently had occasion to look at some of those Audiences, especially after my recent article on Medjugorje and Humanae Vitae.
Hello everyone and happy Sunday!
The other day I saw a particularly strong, dare I say provocative, article on Medjugorje entitled On the Medjugorje Zealots or how the ‘Gospa’ Contradicts the Madonna. The parish vicar of Medjugorje, Fr. Karlo Lovrić, wrote a reply, which I also read.
I learned two days ago that Fr. Dollinger has died. Requiem aeternam, dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis!
Regretfully, his passing leaves us with open questions about the story that he and Ratzinger had two conversations about the third part of the secret of Fátima.
Last year, I was told that a document with an account of his story was to be sent to him for his signature. No word has yet come to me as to whether or not this has happened.
I am at the airport getting ready to return home. Thank you all for your prayers and support during this journey. I hope that the updates were helpful to everyone.
Now, I go to enjoy the rest of my summer vacation, working on some projects and getting involved with my parish. May it be a quiet, restful summer.
Until next post, benedicamus Domino!
I have just now (8:40 a.m., central) learned of an earlier text from Fr. Paul Kramer that discusses the Fr. Ingo Dollinger claim.
I shall accordingly update chapter 12 of On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima. I was unaware of this earlier text while writing my book and offer my sincerest apologies to readers. These discussions on Fátima are ongoing and so we learn (and update) as we go!
A new film on Medjugorje entitled From Fatima to Medjugorje has appeared. Among other things, it claims that the two Bishops of Mostar-Duvno, Zanic and Peric, were in cahoots with the Communists to tear down Medjugorje.
