The topic of Medjugorje has been making news recently because of the Vatican’s decision to assign a special envoy, a Polish archbishop, to examine the pastoral situation in Medjugorje and, on the other hand, because the local bishop of Mostar — whose authority over Medjugorje has been taken away by the Holy See a long time ago — has decided to issue more negative comments about the apparitions.

Here is a great explanation by the Mariologist and Professor at Franciscan University Mark Miravalle, clarifying why the recent news about Medjugorje, especially regarding the special envoy, is good news for Medjugorje.
