And now let us say some thankful words to Catholic traditionalists. Yes, sometimes they are a conspiratorial bunch, but as wise folks have said, “Just because you’re paranoid it doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.”
There’s one area where the traditionalists have been very vigilant and have done all Christians a great favor–and that is in their tenacious criticism of Medjugorje.
Here are two examples.
- E. Michael Jones, The Ghosts of Surmanci: Queen of Peace, Ethnic Cleansing, Ruined Lives.
- Michael Davies, Medjugorje after Twenty-One Years: The Definitive History.
Now, to be even-handed, let me also acknowledge that the extreme left, represented by the National Catholic Reporter, have also made a valuable contribution to this discussion:
- Scott Schaeffer-Duffy, Mary, Queen of Peace, Missing amid Medjugorje Nationalism.
