BISHOP Lindsay (May 15) will help to dispel much of the misunderstanding about Medjugorje pilgrimages by stating the Yugoslav cardinal's clarifications on the subject.

What emerges is that private pilgrimages have the green light as much as ever. Thereby is meant any non-official piligrimage; that is, one lessthan-diocesan in organisation and scope.

People going in this capacity are quite free to believe privately in the supernatural quality of the Medjugorje package; however, they must be fully prepared to accept whatever decision the Church finally makes in the matter.

This helps us to are why official pilgrimages are barred in the meantime.

Worth noting is that scores of bishops from all over have gone there as private pilgrims. So have at least 8,000 priests. Incidentally, this glowing statistic is for curial Bishop Paul Hnilica sufficient proof in itself of Medjugorje's authenticity. And the same view was echoed by curial Cardinal Augustin Mayer in a conversation I had with him recently in Munich.
