What do you think about the apparitions of Our Lady of Međugorje?
As is the case with Medjugorje, most modern Marian apparitions are surrounded by some degree of controversy. That is one reason why I am usually reluctant to assign much significance to them.
Personally I consider apparitions a secondary matter of faith. Especially the modern ones can potentially draw attention away from the things that really matter. As the catechism of the Catholic Church puts it: It is not their role to improve or complete Christ’s definitive Revelation. Any Catholic is free to (respectfully) reject all or certain apparitions, including the officially approved ones!
I am however interested to see what the outcome of the official investigation into the Medjugorje apparitions will be. Perhaps it will show that divine revelation did indeed take place in Medjugorje.
I am so incredibly happy I found your tumblr! It's AMAZING! May I ask where your interest for Mary comes from? And do you perhaps have some recommendations for other tumblrs that focus on religious themes?
Thank you so much for the lovely compliment! I really appreciate it.
A while back another follower also asked me about my interest for Mary. You can read my answer here.
Not religious theme blogs as such, but here are a few tumblrs that regularly post religious material:
