Pope Francis I – as Cardinal Bergoglio he was “happy” to hear another Archbishop from Argentina would go to Medjugorje
Medjugorje has been a cause of joy for the new Pope Francis I, one of his fellow Archbishops from Argentina told during his visit in May 2006.
Monsignor Emilio Ognenovich, retired Archbishop of Mercedes-Luján (Argentina) visited Medjugorje from May 25th to 31st 2006, and then told Medjugorje’s official parish website:
“I will share my own personal conviction with my fellow bishops in the Bishops Conference of Argentina, and also with our cardinal, Mons. Bergoglio, who was very happy when I told him that I was going to Medjugorje.”
From his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI, the new Pope will inherit the results of the Vatican Commission of experts who have been investigating Medjugorje since March 2010, for a final decision.
