In the small village of Medjugorje in Bosnia-Hercegovina the Virgin Mary has reportedly appeared every day.

The reports started in 1981 when six children said they'd seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary on a hillside, ever since then it has been seen regularly - one local man even claims to see her on a daily basis.

"For almost 30 years, the Virgin Mary has been said to appear daily in Medjugorje - a small village in Bosnia-Hercegovina."

Now, lets pass the mass hysteria, the horse manure and the doctor visit for just a moment. What if they really see something? But is it Mary? I mean the Mary mother of JC was a tiny women with olive skin, like most Palestinian women, not tall fair skin black hair vision they had...... so is it subjective or is it something that would typical to Europe in which it couldn't possibly be Mary, but more likely Brigid, Diana or whatever name Celts and Slaves would give their own Goddesses.

Let's see . . . . it doesn't say that he works but he travels back and forth from the U.S. to Europe. So what woman could it be? Only dead presidents appear on U.S. currency (no women, of course) and there are no personalities on the euros . . . I'd say he's probably having lots of visions in the vaults of the Swiss banks.

this is not bull people, miracles are very common, its just the media that tells us that miracles are not true but they are. In fact, i read an article like a year ago where it said that theres atleast 1 miracle that happens throughout everyone's life

What a doctor has to do with this? As usually you exaggerate - all he needs is to be attended by a qualified nurse, and not once a day but 2-3 times a day

True miracles are created by men when they use the courage and intelligence that God gave them.

He probably believes he sees her. Personally, I think the mind is a lot stronger then we think. He is like a child with an imaginary friend. The child believes someone is there until someone tells them their friend is not real. Perhaps he is like a child who never grew up, assuming he is not mentally ill or the more likely guess of a man preying on the beliefs of people to make some money.

I second this. I'm more inclined to believe he is after the fame and cash, but it could be that he suffers from delusions I guess.

I doubt that he's seeing the Virgin Mary everyday.What he might be seeing, I don't know, but doubt it's Mary. As a catholic I am more incline to believe in Our Lady of Zeuiton, in which in the 1960s or around then, the Virgin Mary was seen walking around the dome of St.Mary's Coptic Church in Zeuiton,a suburb of Cairo.When the figure of a woman was first spotted, the police were alerted,as someone feared a woman had climbed onto the dome to commit suicide. To make a long story short, the Virgin Mary was seen by countless people and was even seen on Egyptian national televi... [More]

i would say that he possibly has had the preconcieved notion of who he wanted to see from the start, so when the supernatural being appeared to him, it appeared as what he wanted it to be. perhaps god appears to us as we manifest him and he cares not for one mass image but rather he is different for everyone. who do you believe god is? maybe to one guy GOd is a man with a huge beard and white robes. to another guy, God is someone that cannot be approached and so an intermediary is needed. I am catholic and i can firmly say that we should not be believing Mary is any CO-remdeemer. I believ... [More]

What you call "disrespect" is only a standard human reaction to BS - as telling the miracle stories to the people is sure a disrespect to the addressees, as they are downgraded by the speaker to the level of gullible dumbos. If I start to insist that yesterday Santa brought me a bike - what would your own reaction be - respect?
