Wrong portrayal
30 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a masterpiece of pro-Medjugorje propaganda. The Chancery office of the diocese of Mostar, fervently condemns as untrue all the scenes and words regarding the ecclesiastical behavior of Msr. Pavao Zanic, the former diocesan Bishop (under the name of Peter Zubric in the film) Not even a shadow of cowardliness or easing off of the bishop before the communist authorities was ever in question, let alone any type of collaboration with them, as can be concluded by watching the film...To represent Bishop Zanic as a collaborator with the communists and as a weakling in conversation with the Franciscans while talking about Medjugorje, contradicts all the bishop's public appearances and statements which are well known regarding these events. A film which abuses the name of our Lady, which does not shy away from an incorrect and insulting presentation of the local bishop...does not merit the attention of the faithful.

Stella Matunina, ora pro nobis.
