Međugorje: Private vs. Public Revelation

What do you know about the apparitions of Međugorje? Although these apparitions are not yet approved, there are many who have traveled to the site and been convicted in their faith. Fr. Josh Johnson shares about his own experiences with Međugorje and explains the difference between private and public revelation.

Snippet from the Show
Authentic apparitions don’t add anything to our faith. They simply emphasize something that is already present in the ordinary teachings of the Church.

Lucia was born in 1907 in Portugal. She was one of the three children to whom Mary appeared in Fatima. Lucia was ten years old at the time of the apparitions. Lucia lived to be 97 years old and spent fifty of those years in a Carmelite convent. Her cause for canonization was opened in 2008.

He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.

  1. Love this show- along with Fr. Josh! My family traveled to Medjugorie around 1989. – ( my husband & I and 2 children- they were young Joseph was 13- our daughter, Katie-10 years old. We were blessed in this place. There are many stories which I could write about- Our Lady provided us with the means to allow us to go. Most importantly, Our Lady brought us closer to her son, Jesus.
