Bishop Zanic Retires

Bishop Zanic Retires

Bishop Zanic retires and Bishop Ratko Peric succeeds him as the Bishop of Mostar. On Bishop Peric’s first visit to the parish of St. James in Medjugorje, he confirmed 150 children receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. In his homily, he spoke of the Zadar Declaration and the continued investigations, as well as the directive from the Church to care for the pastoral needs of the pilgrims visiting Medjugorje. However, despite his initial good will, he would follow in the same footsteps of Bishop Zanic and very vocally denounce Medjugorje, remaining adamantly opposed to the apparitions.
