Medjugorje: Cdl Schonborn affirms private audience was about visit; acknowledges new Commission

The Austrian online Catholic site, interviewed Cardinal Schonborn today on the occasion of his 65th birthday. The interviewer asked about his private audience with the Holy Father that took place on January 15th. In his reply, he acknowledged the following:

  • The topic of the audience was Medjugorje given public awareness of his visit
  • Acknowledges Holy Father is setting up a Commission to study events
  • Mentions fruits, but acknowledges there are "certainly some open questions"

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the MIR Information Center in Medjugorje which has visited this blogpost.  Perhaps they would be so kind as to update their website with the information below.  As of January 23rd, the main website out of Medjugorje, affiliated to some degree with the parish of St. James, has posted none of the items below pertaining to the Cardinal's visit, other than the interview of the Cardinal by Vecernji List which took place on January 4th.  This too is a fruit.

Sadly, continues to market DVD's of the Cardinal's visit, further exploiting the situation.
