17 of 20 members of new Medjugorje commission known (unofficial)

This post may be updated, so please check back.  I have edited in a few more links since posting it earlier.

Several Croatian and BiH sources, such as Vecernji List and  Sarajevo-X [google translate versions] are reporting that 17 of the 20 members of the new Medjugorje commission are known.  I have provided as much information as I could understand and was able to find a little more.  I did the best I could to find their country of origin, and other info.  Please send corrections and I will get to them when I am home later or at lunch time.
If anyone has more information on specific people listed, especially those who are not in the Catholic hierarchy, please drop a note in the combox or email me at  I am specifically interested in links to pages which would contain things like a curriculum vitae, or other hard data. 

An interesting note on Fr. Jaeger:
Rev. Fr. David-Maria Jaeger, O.F.M., J.C.D., is a former pastor of St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Austin, Texas and served on the Tribunal for the Diocese of Austin. He is currently a member of the faculty at the Pontifical Athenaeum "Antonianum" in Rome and is a member of the Delegation of the Holy See on the Bilateral Permanent Working Commission between the Holy See and the State of Israel. Born of Jewish parents in Tel Aviv, Israel, Fr. Jaeger is the only native-born Israeli ("Sabra") ordained as a Roman Catholic priest in the world.

Please Pray!

Please pray for the commission members and the CDF which will make decisions based on their findings.  Please pray also that people on all sides receive any decision out of the CDF with humility.  It is not important who is right and who is wrong.  What is important is truth in charity.

*4-15-2010: On Abp Amato - Updated link to read that Abp Amato signed the letter authorizing Bishop Peric to make public those sanctions in 2008.  Added in link about Tuscan Bishop's memo several days ago.
