Louis Bélanger of Quebec is a man whose name may not be as well known among those considered to be experts on the subject of Medjugorje. But, it should be.
Let's step back a little. We have a phenomenon that has been going on for nearly 30 years now, currently under investigation by the Church through an international Commission that was announced on March 17, 2010.
If we set aside "fruits" and look at "events" (who, what, where, when, how), the evidence at the "flashpoint" of an event, or soon after, is always of greater interest to investigators than what comes later. Think about a crime scene: Early in the investigation, the evidence has greater purity because it is relatively undisturbed by other external elements and influences. With each hour or day that passes, there is a greater chance that things which are foreign to the initial event will get introduced and lead investigators on a wild goose chase.
In his first post at Medjupedia, Louis Bélanger introduces himself, his work, and that of Fr. Ivo Sivrić, OFM. He will be making more posts, perhaps going beyond what is in Volume 1, sharing and explaining what he learned through his scientific studies. Consider bookmarking the site and checking back for more posts.
As a sidenote, Fr. Sivrić, listed among the deceased OFM's at the Croatian Custody out of Chicago, passed away in October of 2002 at the age of 85. Requiescat in pace!
