Medjugorje still not legit

The Papal Nuncio to the U.S. sent a letter last week to our bishops reminding them that Medjugorje as a site of an alleged Marian apparition is not yet a legitimate site for Catholic pilgrimages.

The local Yugoslavian bishops in 1991 ruled that the apparitions were not authenticate. Until the CDF rules on the apparitions, the 1991 ruling is to be followed.

I'm indifferent about Marian apparitions. If the CDF rules that Medjugorje is legit, more power to it! If not, ho-hum.  Apparitions (Marian or otherwise) are completely extraneous to human salvation. All we need for our salvation is revealed in scripture and authentically interpreted by the magisterium.
