I have been stating recently that the Vatican and the majority of the Catholic Church Hierarchy are against the phenomena known as Medjugorje. My suspicions, beliefs, and writings have been bolstered by the recent hammering from the Papal Nuncio to the USA banning all visits from the Visionaries across the United States. I am sure this will be enacted throughout the world. What is interesting to note is that in the official letter from the most reverend Fr. Carlo Maria Viganò, the Nuncio of the US, he quoted the decision made by the CDF in 1991 which found the apparitions not to be of supernatural origin. That statement by him verifies and denounces the claims made by pro-Medjugorje people that the 1991 decision was not valid. We can see the web of lies are falling apart as the apparition and it’s visionaries are starting to feel the full weight of Holy Mother Church putting an end to the great lie that has led so many astray.
I’ve written some articles on Medjugorje recently, here are a few links if you want to read more on the phenomena:

APOSTOLIC NUNCIATURE’ UNITED STATES OP AMERICA
Reverend Monsignor Jenkins,
I write at the request of His Excellency, the Most Reverend Gerhard Ludwig Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, who asks, that the Bishops of the United States be advised, once again, of the following (cf. my letter of 27 February 2013, of the s4ie protocol number). Thus, his Excellency wishes to inform the Bishops that one of the so-called visionaries of Medjugorje, Mr. Ivan Dragovic, is scheduled to appear at certain parishes around the country, during which time he will make presentations regarding the phenomenon of Medjugorje. It is anticipated, Moreover, that Mr. Dragitcevie vill be receiving “apparitions” during these scheduled appearances. As you are well aware, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is in the process of investigating certain doctrinal and disciplinary aspects of the phenomenon of Medjugorje. For this reason the Congregation has affirmed that, with regard to the credibility of the ‘apparitions” in question, all should accept the declaration, dated 10 April 1991, from the Bishop of the former Republic of Yugoslavia, which asserts: “On the basis of the research that has been done, it is not possible to state that there were apparitions or supernatural revelations.” It allows, therefore, that clerics and the faithful are not permitted to participate in meetings, conferences or public celebrations during which the credibility of such “apparitions” would be taken for granted.
In order, therefore, to avoid scandal and confusion, Archbishop Muller asks that the Bishops be informed of this matter as soon as possible.
I take this opportunity to present to you my sentiments of profound esteem and remain,
Monsignor Ronny Jenkins
General Secretary of the USCCB 3211 Fourth Street NE Washington, DC 20017
Sincerely yours in Christ,
