Fr. Zlatko Sudac about Medjugorje

date: 16.05.2005.

In the last issue of Glas mira, as well as in the most read Croatian daily Večernji list, the famous Croatian priest Fr. Zlatko Sudac spoke also about Medjugorje. He answered to the question about the apparitions of Medjugorje, and he said:

“Medjugorje is the confessional of the world. Millions of people came to Medjugorje, they are converted to God, they make the experience of God, they make general confessions, they receive the sacraments… These are the fruits, and Jesus is clearly saying: “You will recognise them by their fruits”. I am deeply convinced that Medjugorje is a holy place. Our Lady is patient and she is teaching us with her messages. She said once: "If you do not come to me, I will come to you." We are all God’s Church and thank God for gathering us together in Medjugorje.”

Asked what he thinks about Our Lady’s apparitions in general, he said:

“This is just one more confirmation of how much Mary cares for the humanity and the salvation of the world. Jesus came for the first time through Mary. We are expecting his second coming. I am deeply convinces that Jesus will come through Mary.”

Asked if he thinks that the Church will recognise Medjugorje as it recognised Fatima and Lourdes, he gave the following answer:

“For the Church to recognise Medjugorje, it will take time. The Church is always acting with wisdom and examining the pulsation of the time, but this does ot mean that Medjugorje is not a holy place. Each church is a holy place, and how much more Medjugorje, where people from the whole world are coming on pilgrimage.”
