MEDJUGORJE DISOBEDIENCE: THE DUPLICITOUS MESSAGES OF GOSPA


MEDJUGORJE PILGRIMAGES: The DUPLICITOUS MESSAGE of GOSPA




..according to the seers the GOSPA of MEDJUGORJE has said ... Catholics of good conscience and people of all creeds are called to conversion of heart, prayer and fasting...practical prayer as well as a salutary disposition of soul and mind...fasting not only in a corporal sense but also fasting of the reason and desires..to exercise prudence and temperance..which of course we do not see at MEDJUGORJE since the proponents have failed to obey the Agency and agents of God in his Church ..the successors to the apostles...


...if one examines the messages more closely and uses the scriptures as a mirror of discernment along with the laws of love as they are evinced through the dogmas and traditions of the Church and the exhortations of the bishops in good standing we see that there are many contradictions...


April 25, 1994 "Dear children! Today I invite you to decide to pray according to my intention. Little children, I invite each one of you to help my plan to be realized through this parish. Now I invite you in a special way, little children, to decide to go along the way of holiness. Only this way will you be close to me. I love you and I desire to conduct you all with me to Paradise. But, if you do not pray and if you are not humble and obedient to the messages which I am giving you, I cannot help you. Thank you for having responded to my call."


..according to this message the GOSPA is instigating rebellion and insubordination to the local Ordinary( the Bishop)..as well as the Bishops of Zadar as well as the CDF ... it was the Bishop in good standing who has cautioned and indeed ordered that the dissemination of any messages be not made or attributed to the Mother of God... the Zadar Bishops and the CDF have concurred...indeed how is one to walk the paths of holiness if they have not the humility to trust the Shepherds of the Church..as well how can one reconcile the fact that the Gospa herself is contradicting an order of her Son...this order is to obey the Bishops who are not purveying any sinful decree...








[10]And thou shalt do whatsoever they shall say, that preside in the place, which the Lord shall choose, and what they shall teach thee,

[8] If thou perceive: Here we see what authority God was pleased to give to the church guides of the Old Testament, in deciding, without appeal, all controversies relating to the law; promising that they should not err therein; and surely he has not done less for the church guides of the New Testament.

[11]According to his law; and thou shalt follow their sentence: neither shalt thou decline to the right hand nor to the left hand. [12] But he that will be proud, and refuse to obey the commandment of the priest, who ministereth at that time to the Lord thy God, and the decree of the judge, that man shall die, and thou shalt take away the evil from Israel: [13] And all the people hearing it shall fear, that no one afterwards swell with pride

Deuteronomy 17:10-13

..so we see from scripture that defying a bishop in good standing provides an occaision of placing one’s soul in grave danger from spiritual death...










[20] Amen, amen I say to you, he that receiveth whomsoever I send, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me.

John 13:20


10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil. Whosoever is not just is not of God, or he that loveth not his brother.

1 John 3:10


....of course in order to be just one must be fair and give everyone their rightful due..and when we disrespect the wishes of a Shepherd of God the local Bishop then we are not practicing justice and equanimity...are we showing love to the local Bishop whose mission is to protect us from error when we proceed in a spirit of public disdain for his witness and ignore his pleas...


....as well we have the Catechism of the Church as a sure guide...

CCC 896, “Let all follow the bishop, as Jesus Christ follows his Father, and the college of presbyters as the apostles; respect the deacons as you do God's law. Let no one do anything concerning the Church in separation from the bishop."


....of course the Gospa wants all to follow her message but not to follow the advice of the local Bishop...or the advice of the Zadar Commission or the advice of the CDF who have told the faithful to stop presuming the credibility of any apparition publicly....


..this is just one message of thousands and in other mesages the GOSPA advises prayer for God’s priests however if one does not obey the priests and bishops and become a vehicle for God’s grace through practical prayer which is done by following an agent of God’s commands then prayer indeed does not actuate its full potential since obstinate supplicants thwart the efficacy of God’s grace...through obedience we attain unity....



As Thomas Aquinas wisely says...










..such people are viewed as fanatics who try to bend everyone to their whim rather than trying to accept each person for their deficiencies as God accepts us all..and to work to create unity of cause...indeed not all faithful are called to pray, fast, read the bible and go to mass every day...some do more some do less..however if we keep up with our obligations and live the law of love as Jesus says..to love one another as i have loved you..this is the chief commandment..a shortcut to heaven..indeed one must not neglect the sacraments however one is not required to pray, fast and attend confession (unless in a state of mortal sin) under a strict regime unless they are in a religious vocation....it is bewildering to watch as many proponents adopt a Pharisiacal attitude that they are more Holy since they pray and fast and Go to mass every day..however this is the spirit which Jesus rebukes...

..so we see adherents at MEDJUGORJE praying so that the Bishop change his stance and accept the messages of the GOSPA yet this is unwise and definately contrary to the will of God who exhorts us to be loving and kind and in humility submit to the advice of our spiritual Fathers who are not espousing sin....this is the type of fanaticism petulance and hypocrisy which makes all Chirstians look bad..indeed this type of attitude is an enemy to peace since such a one is still absorbed in their own prerogatives and not resigned to take up the cross and follow Christ..the cross of human suffering..indeed no one can carry Christ's cross yet we all can carry a small portion of it as the apostle exhorts us in the Gospel where he mentions ...
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ, in my flesh, for his body, which is the church:
Colossians 1:24


April 25, 1996 "Dear children! Today I invite you again to put prayer in the first place in your families. Little children, when God is in the first place, then you will, in all that you do, seek the will of God. In this way your daily conversion will become easier. Little children, seek with humility that which is not in order in your hearts, and you shall understand what you have to do. Conversion will become a daily duty that you will do with joy. Little children, I am with you, I bless you all and I invite you to become my witnesses by prayer and personal conversion. Thank you for having responded to my call."


..from another message we are purportedly told by the GOSPA to put GOD first...if we do not listen to his agents...the Bishops and the CDF then we are not explicitly putting GOD first..we are subjugating GOD to the urges of our own desires and our own will...and so the GOSPA herself is espousing a duplicitous spirituality which is not sincerely seeking unity....let us all examine ourselves through a spirit of contrition and by the principles of philia and agape love so that we may not be a slave to our own spiritually erotic desires ...let us strive for a rational love ...amen
