Bishop Pavao Zanic went to Rome wanting to shut Medjugorje down. The Vatican also had its eye on Medjugorje having heard many good reports from bishops, priests, religious and laymen. They knew also that Bishop Zanic, who had originally been positive towards Medjugorje, was now adamantly opposed to it. Cardinal Ratzinger cautioned Bishop Zanic from acting too hastily. Bishop Zanic was counseled to soften his opposition and let events take their own course.
