Cardinal Frantisek Tomasek

Cardinal Frantisek Tomasek from Prague reports that the Holy Father told him that, were he not the Pope he would like to go to Medjugorje to help with the work of the pilgrims. Concerning his own opinion about Medjugorje, Cardinal Tomasek said:

“I am profoundly grateful to God for Medjugorje. It relates very well with the 70 years since the Fatima apparitions, and with this Marian Year (1987). I really hear Medjugorje being spoken about a lot but I desire to hear it being spoken of even more. Also I desire to go to Medjugorje if it is possible so as to obtain fresh hope. Many of my faithful desire this also.”

For the faithful of Czechoslovakia, he expressed what Medjugorje meant to them:

“The Marian apparitions at Medjugorje mean a great deal for us, especially because for us in Czechoslovakia devotion to the Blessed Mother is deep and lively. With us there is a great interest in Medjugorje. Priests and faithful are deeply grateful for every message, every report that we receive from Medjugorje. Personally I am deeply convinced of the apparitions in Medjugorje…I am deeply convinced: Step by step, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. And I am deeply convinced that Medjugorje is a sign for this.”
