  1. John,

    You’ll understand if I am somewhat curious about the maturity of someone who has to say “I told you so.”

    But lets leave that aside. What did I apparently say that you believe is contradicted by the news item?

    Look carefully, and get back to me.


    By the way, I noticed you never corrected that typo I brought to your attention.

  2. 🙂 Don’t be a sore loser, Kelly. We all make mistakes.

    “But priests, bishops, and cardinals can travel to Medjugorje alone or with groups, as pilgrimers and there is nothing wrong with that.”

    Vienna’s Cardinal Christoph Schönborn has written to Bishop Ratko Peric of Mostar, apologizing for any problems he might have caused with his “private” visit to Medjurgorje in December. Bishop Peric, who heads the diocese in Bosnia-Herzegovina where Medjugorje is located, had complained that the Austrian cardinal’s visit lent credence to the reported apparitions there.

    There mere presence is problematic. That was my contention. Your remark above does not recognize that.


    What typo was that?

  3. Hi John, so far as I can tell, the Cardinal apologized for “any problems he might have caused with his ‘private’ visit to Medjurgorje…”

    The key word here is “problems.” It is my opinion that it is okay for a Cardinal to pilgrimage to Medjurgorje, and I don’t feel that this apology contradicts my opinion.

    Having said that, because of what I feel to be crucial differences between Medjurgorje on one hand, and Lourdes, Fatima and Guadalupe on the other, I prefer the latter, and am extremely cautious about the former.

    I feel that the Cardinal was right to apologize. There were etiquette issues that do not seem to have been dealt with beforehand.

    I’m not sure how this makes me a sore loser, but oh well, I miss a lot of things. Congrats on your re-emergence into the field of apologetics.


  4. I’m not a good sport.

    You called me a sore-loser. Either you were sort-of joking (you do have a smile emoticon beside it), or you really think that you somehow proved me wrong.

    Which is it?
