Position of the Orthodox Church on Medjugorje

The Orthodox Church as yet has no official position on the Apparitions of Medjugorje. Orthodox priests and/or lay people may have an opinion pro or con, and each person’s views are to be respected, but regarding the official views of the Orthodox Church on this phenomena – there is no official ruling. At this time it is a matter of individual discernment. Supernatural occurrences are a part of our Orthodox Christian belief and there is no reason to believe that Divine guidance cannot occur anywhere in the world, any time, or in any place in the world.
