Cardinal Franjo Kuharic

Cardinal Franjo Kuharic, President of the Bishop’s Conference of Yugoslavia, announces the formation of a new committee charged with investigating the apparitions of Medjugorje. With the decision from the Vatican to make a regional committee to continue the investigation of the apparitions of Medjugorje, the Bishop of Mostar no longer holds the authority to approve or condemn the apparitions. As a member of the committee, Zanic continued to have a voice to express his opinion concerning Medjugorje, and to use his influence upon other committee members that the Church recognized as his right. However, his opinion did not carry any greater weight of authority than any other bishop from this moment forward.
