Cardinal Simoni: "Pope Francis, Has Changed His Opinion About Medjugorje"

(Rome) Pope Francis has apparently "changed" his opinion on the alleged appearances of Medjugorje and was about to announce "good news". This was addressed by Cardinal Ernest Simoni SJ, who was sent by Pope Francis to the 28th International Youth Festival in Medjugorje.
On Sunday, the English-speaking, Croatian news page titled Total Croatia News , cited the Croatian daily newspaper Vecernji List.
"Medjugorje apparitions close to official recognition."

Cardin Simoni in Medjugorje

The Albanian Jesuit Ernest Simoni was elevated to the rank of Cardinal by Pope Francis. Simoni had been detained by the communist regime for almost ten years in Albania until the early 1990s.
"In front of 50,000 young people from all over the world," the 88-year-old cardinal said at the Freilichtfestival in front of the parish church of Medjugorje. Before he embarked to the Herzegovinian town, he had asked the Pope for his blessing. According to the media reports, the Cardinal said that Francis had little information on Medjugorje, and that this had come from the "opponents" of the phenomenon. This is why the Pope could not have "a good opinion." But things would "change", according to the "personal ambassador of the pope".
In the past, Pope Francis was very critical of the phenomenon in which the Mother of God appeared as a kind of "postbot" or "head of a post office" to convey "messages" at a certain time. In the autumn of 2013, he mentions in a morning sermon in Santa Marta Medjugorje, in particular, as a negative example, as those present heard. The two summaries of Radio Vatican and Osservatore Romano did not mention Medjugorje.
According to Vecernji List, there is "no doubt" that Pope Francis "has now decided" to convey an "optimistic message". Cardinal Simoni preached "openly and without any reservations about the apparitions of Our Lady," according to the Croatian newspaper, which ended its report with the words:
"This ultimately signals that we are a small step from the final decision on the papal status of Medjugorje."

  2. There is absolutely no doubt that this is a hoax. You need only refer to the writings of Malachi Martin. The claim is that the Mother of God appeared to these children as children and no longer has any connection to them. The income from this site is worth multi millions. It would appear that the Vatican needs the money.---This is on the very site of a massacre of over one thousand Orthodox including the dismemberment of priests. Croatia was Nazi and then after the war, the Communists moved in through the partisans to push Croatia into the web of Tito. This was a way for Communism to keep control of Catholics and to make money at the same time.

  3. At this point he must know he's in a race and time is short to take as many souls down to hell as possible fake divorces, "mercy", fake apparitions, he's in for the "win"

  4. I dont care who approves the so-called events in Bosnia.

    No one will ever make me believe this travesty.

    I know too many Medjugorj-niks.
    Less than edifying and brainwashed.

    I'm tired of the rosaries turning to gold mantra.

    1. Alchemy, regarding this at Medjugorje, the late Fr. Malachi Martin said it was an ancient trick of the devil. It's worthless "gold" if it even happened too, we ever hear a follow up story from one of these supposed incidents where they tested the "gold"? Like all the devil's "promises", I'm sure it's worthless trash.

  6. That which is good that comes from Medjugorje, is due to God's Grace.
    We can know through both Faith and reason that Our Lady would never make the claim that she Loves all religions equally, and deny Christ.

    1. What comes good from there? It's all a rotten fruit deception, anything supposedly good just ends up being rotten.

    2. True conversions do not come from the deception at Medjugorje, but through The Grace of God, flowing through Our Blessed Mother, Destroyer of all heresies, including the heresy that claims Our Lady loves all religions, and thus does not desire Salvation for her beloved.

  7. The 'apparition' at Medjugorje and Francis have at least one thing in common...verbosity. Were the two ever to meet it would be a wonder which one might get a word in edgewise.

  8. If the pope and the 'apparition' did meet (in an encounter specially arranged by the god of surprises, no doubt) it's quite likely that Francis would afterwards announce that he'd been given an otherworldly instruction to fling open the church's doors and windows to all those uniquely talented but unjustly thwarted priestesses and thus solve the vocations crisis in one fell swoop. #New Springtime Springclean.

  9. Sounds like a people on this site have precluded the Church's formal inquiry into this matter and have already concluded that the apparitions are false. Amazing that you were given this Divine Inspiration!! Who needs a Church investigation, right?

    1. Well said !!! My understanding is that earlier this spring the commission set up to examine the whole situation approved the first 7 apparitions and has not reached a decision on the rest.

      I also understand from a reliable priestly source that it is likely we will see much more visible Vatican presence at Medjugorje in the comming few years and also that there are regular visits from Rome which take place without any fanfare.

    2. The bishop of the diocese in which Medjugorje is located has said that it is fake. That's all that a faithful Catholic needs to know.

  10. In his teaching and testimony in the morning session on August 3, 2017 the Cardinal said: I am so excited to be here (Medjugorje). I have the impression that angels are descending to be with us in this beautiful atmosphere. In this beautiful place. In invite you that even though it is summer, that we all experience Jesus Christ in this heat. In 1945 what started was a difficult year, a Calvary for everything that was Christian in Albania. It was evil and the force of darkness, Satan. It came to make the Albanian country full of blood, to make martyrs of the Albanian people. But the situation was more and more complicated when Stalin took control with his hands. He wanted our Albanian government to say that he would open the Church in the world. He gathered all the priests together.

    We did not know why they invited us. But we found out. They wanted to detach us from Rome, from the Vatican. So we would not be a Catholic Church. But the Catholic clergy never wanted that. As they were able to see that we persevered, they told us, do what you want with the Vatican. You are free. But it was a false freedom. The world was told we had freedom but this was false news. But still the ideology became stronger and stronger and more crazy. You see what was happening was such a difficulty. It was a prison without wall, and we the people young and old, they were pushing. In 1956 I became a priest. I started my own mission. I didn’t know that I was always followed. They had spies watching me and wrote every word I said. They would use that information one day against me. But you see even though we could feel in our spirit that difficulties were coming, we left two things to the people of God, pray the Rosary and adore the Blessed Sacrament. And that is how they would survive. The government knew this. That is how the persecution began.

    1963, midnight. They came and tied me up, and brought me to an unknown area. I received the decree that I was condemned to death because I was telling the people they would all die for Jesus Christ. They also had a secret camera the recorded what I was saying and doing. That is how I ended up in a small room, two meters by two meters.

    One of my good friends had been a secret agent. He was a spy. I thought he was a good man, but he was a spy. And he started to attack the system. I could see what was going to happen. So I changed my tactic. I said Jesus teaches us to love our enemies. To love everyone. Jesus doesn’t want us to have enemies.

    And there was one other accusation. Two weeks before the American president, John Kennedy, died. And we, all the priests of the world were asked to say three Holy Masses for the late American President, John Kennedy. I did this, because the Holy Father asked. So I became the enemy of the system. And of course, the image of the late president, and his wife, Jacqueline, disturbed the communist country. I was to be hung by the neck. They would use these points to accuse me.

    Still there was another accusation. That people would be happy that I was hung, because I conducted an exorcism. That souls would be saved. But the president when he heard that, said I should not be hanged. Of course I remained in prison. I remained in solitude in that cell, but I was not killed. Today I am proud I was in a prison. Because I was able to bring the joyful news of Jesus Christ. It was good that I was in prison.

    So my business card, my dear young people, is that I was able to speak about God in the prison, in the catacombs. So now you can see how they call me the cardinal, the little creature of God.

    After 10 years, they took me back to court. Again they wanted to judge me. This time they brought a group of young Catholics who lied about me so that the court would bring the death penalty against me. So you can see dear brothers and sisters, that when man can no longer act, God intervenes. They could not bring me the death penalty. So I remained again in solitude, in prison. I would say Holy Mass, and here confessions. I was a prisoner among the prisoners.

  14. part 5 Then after 28 years in prison, in the catacombs, I was freed. But I had to clean the toilets and do the worst work. But the hand of God led me, even though I had heard I would be working. I still could be a priest, and when I wasn’t working, I could say Holy Mass. In 1990 I went for another interview. And they said, we invited you to tell you that the Church is going to be open soon.

    Again, Vatican is going to come to Albania. The Church is going to have freedom and God will return to the people. And I was happy. May it be so. But I have the Holy Father in Rome. I will continue to do what I did, as a priest. Then together with the people I experienced freedom!

    That was when we truly experienced, all the people of God, Catholics, Muslims, Orthodox, we all experienced freedom. After that time, I had the experience in all the places I visited, I would give a joyful speech about Jesus, who in the prison I was able to confess. Again, we were able to have all that joy again. Then Mother Teresa came to Albania. And together we were going to visit the Holy Father. That is when things began to be renewed, Mother Teresa and the Holy Father. People began to invest in our lives and that is how we began to live.

    I did not expect to be a cardinal in my life. I was invited to come to Assisi, to a peace conference. I didn’t know why I was invited. Imagine me, little priest, unknown priest from Albania, when I looked around me and saw people – presidents and leaders from all over the world. Why was I there? I didn’t understand. And more interesting for me, the Holy Father invited me to lunch! I didn’t know, Holy Father didn’t tell me. Holy Father came to Albania in 2014, and I spoke before him, and that is why he invited me. So I didn’t know anything. Not Holy Father nor anyone there in Rome told me I would be a cardinal. But on the screen I saw my name, Cardinal Ernest.

    So today I am saying this. This is God’s gift. This is a reward of the Mother of God, and anyone who says three Rosaries a day will experience a miracle that he would never be able to experience. If you pray the Rosary you will experience a greater miracle than I did! And I am trying to tell you, that the Mother of God, the Queen of Peace, she is going to bring you in your life, and give you in your life, the light. You will have peace too.

    So I want to witness what I in my years, 89 years old, learned. Whatever we pray and give to Our Lady, to the Mother, she will give it to Jesus and He will answer it for you. That is what I want to tell you today. For two thousand years Christ’s mother, Our Lady, is supporting what Christ wants, what Jesus wants. And that is how she will continue in the world. The Cardinal brought a book, a book each of you should see. It has all the apparitions of the world. Everywhere that Our Lady is there is the salvation of the world. Here is the book. Please read about the apparitions. The one who will pray to God for the salvation of the world. All the apparitions of Our Lady up to 2000.

    What is the most beautiful thing that happened to me in my life of 89 years? My life is connected with the providence of God. I say this humbly. When I became a priest, when I had Jesus Christ in my hands. Further when the Holy Father appointed me as a Cardinal, and he rewarded me for all I did for God.
