Vatican to Officially Investigate Medjugorje Sightings

 The BVM has been making its appearance in Medjugorje since 1981. The visions have never been taken seriously by the Catholic Church, in fact, stern warnings have been issued by authoritarian religious rulers to not discuss, investigate, or take part in the apparitions. (Some other Christian denominations however take the sightings very seriously, considering them satantic.) But now the Vatican has decided to officially investigate the sightings:

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican has begun formally investigating reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary at the Medjugorje shrine in southern Bosnia.
An international commission of inquiry headed by Italian Cardinal Camillo Ruini – a top adviser to the late Pope John Paul II – has been formed to study the case and report back to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican said in a statement Wednesday.
