MEDJUGORJE POPE FRANCIS DECLARES SHRINE STATUS???

MEDJUGORJE IS NOT AN OFFICIAL SHRINE

 
..contrary to an aberrant notion being spread in public forums MEDJUGORJE is not an official shrine...contrary to the mind of a misinformed body of the faithful Medjugorje is not a shrine by Default....

 
.. the official stance of the Church and Pope Francis himself is the Zadar Declaration..it cannot be ascertained that the Church is dealing with a supernatural phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE...yet there is a persistent appeal to public credulity whereby many adherents  splinter artifacts of the Truth in an attempt to fabricate scenarios based on speculation and by so doing pawn such a manipulation of credibility into an official endorsement of the Church...
 
..nowhere in the annals of the Church has MEDJUGORJE officially been declared a SHRINE...
 
...indeed many sites which are not Church sanctioned grasp at this statement made in 1993 and try to purloin the relevance and change this public statement into an official Church Declaration...
 
“We bishops, after a three-year-long commission study accept Medjugorje as a holy place, as a shrine. This means that we have nothing against it if someone venerates the Mother of God in a manner also in agreement with the teaching and belief of the Church…” 
 
..this quote was published in Glas Koncila as an article in 1993 and the commission referred to is the Zadar Commission...there is no context given..as well many assume this is the result of another Commission however there was no other commission at this time...and so this statement refers to the Zadar Commission..as is well known the Zadar Commission and the Bishop's Conference did not dedicate a shrine to the Virgin at this time...indeed nowhere in the Church has Medjugorje been named a Shrine...
 
...the statement maintains that the Bishops accept Medjugorje as a shrine if someone venerates the Mother of God in a manner in AGREEMENT with the Church...to state that the Mother of God is actually appearing in Medjugorje is NOT venerating Mary in agreement with the beliefs of the Church..and of course this is happening in Medjugorje...
 
..and so if one is assuming Mary the Mother of God is appearing in Medjugorje then the Bishops cannot consider Medjugorje a Holy place or a shrine since the veneration runs inimical to the beliefs of the Church.... 

..since the Zadar Declaration is an official belief of the Church it must be accepted as a directive made from the mind of the Church..to go against this would be unreasonable & imprudent..possibly placing one's salvation in jeopardy.....


..as well according to Canon 1231...

Can. 1231 For a shrine to be called a national shrine, the conference of bishops must give its approval; for it to be called an international shrine, the approval of the Holy See is required.

..since the Bishops Conference of Zadar have stated nothing supernatural can be ascertained as well as never declaring a shrine here at medjugorje we can see that according to Canon 1231 we need the approval of the Bishops to start the process....subsequently the Holy See proceeds to make Medjugorje an International shrine..however in order for Medjugorje to be an international shrine it must be a national one first..since what is aggregate of the entire must summarily comprise every succesive  parcel of the whole...we cannot have an international shrine if we do not have a national shrine first..and so the Pope will not make Medjugorje an international shrine since the Bishops Conference have not allowed the first contingent step to occur in the process...sadly much misinformation is disseminated in public forums leading the body of the faithful into great confusion and scandal...let us all examine ourselves in a spirit of studious recollection so that we may find unity in one discernment through the Church .....amen
