Recently, there were advertisements for “an evening with Our Lady and Ivan Dragicevic.” The alleged visionary of Medjugorje was to be hosted by the Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich Foundation in Missouri. This flew in the face of a 2013 directive from Cardinal Müller, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, in a memo to U.S. bishops through the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Vigano. The letter included lay people in those not permitted to participate in these public, alleged apparitions. After reviewing the status of Medjugorje and noting the Holy See was still investigating, he explains:
“It follows, therefore, that clerics and the faithful are not permitted to participate in meetings, conferences or public celebrations during which the credibility of such ‘apparitions’ would be taken for granted.”
