Following a letter from the Vatican (CDF) to the US nuncio, a planned visit to the US by Ivan one of the alleged seers of Medjugorje, has been cancelled. Click here to read more
This is very good news. Hopefully, this monumental hoax will soon be publicly exposed as such by the Vatican authorities. The “visionaries” and their thousands of fans have refused to accept the legitimate authority of the local bishop on this matter, so it will be interesting to see their reaction when the Vatican, and not before time, eventually denounces the fraud.
One of the most shocking things about the whole thing is that it has become a real money-spinner for the “seers”. Below is a taste of what is out there on the web about just one of those claiming to be in regular communication with Our Lady: the following is from the website Medjugorje Without a Mask – An Inquiry on Ivan…
In September 2009 was announced a report, with a 97-page documental dossier, on real estate transactions made in the USA by the Medjugorje seer Ivan Dragičević.
I chose to insert the link to this report, of course, only after verifying its reliability and validity: whoever would make their own verification, can use the various services in the United States that give, on payment, complete data on the real estate transactions of every citizen.
In brief, what follows can be proved by documents and verified: Ivan, who is married with four children, at first contracted, on May 15, 2002, a mortgage loan for which he promised to pay $60,678 a year for 14 years, and then sold this residence for a new one in May 2004: 5,056 Sq. Ft. (land size: 13,844 Sq. Ft.) with a swimming pool. This building is located at 5 Emily Ln Peabody, Massachusetts. In this case, the loan of $800,000 was to be repaid in 6 months (it was in fact paid off in a year).
So – what do you think… Will the UK nuncio send a similar instruction to the bishops to prohibit visits from Ivan to parishes across the UK? Or will the Medjugorje network here continue to spread its poison?
