Archbishop Allessandro D’Errico’s Statement

Archbishop Allessandro D’Errico, Apostolic Nuncio to Bosnia-Hercegovina, gave a statement about Medjugorje at the end of the 48th Bishops’ Conference of Bosnia-Hercegovina. In the statement broadcast by Radio Mir Medjugorje, he said about Pope Benedict XVI:

“Whenever I would meet Holy Father, he was always very much interested in Medjugorje. He was involved in everything, starting with the time when he was Head of Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. He is aware that this is the issue of special importance, and he, as supreme authority of the Church, needs to give his precise statement about that matter. Holy Father is very much familiar with Medjugorje phenomenon; he even mentioned that to me personally. He is aware of huge amount of positive and good influence of local priests, religious, Franciscans, lay people, and therefore, it is very difficult for him to perceive that there can be so many opposing information about the same matter.”

Regarding the new Commission set up by the Pope Benedict XVI to investigate Medjugorje, the archbishop said:

“That is why he wanted to establish this Commission that is on really high level. He wanted to establish this Commission in order for him to have broad picture about this matter, but according to the people who have highest qualities and skills. That is why he invited cardinals, bishops and experts from different parts of the world to be part of this Commission.”
