Today a dear friend of Medjugorje was born into heaven.... His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago, and from 2007 to 2010 President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
When in 2010 it had been suggested to Cardinal George that he allow Holy Name Cathedral to host Medjugorje visionary Ivan Dragicevic who would have an apparition of Our Lady in his cathedral, he had replied, "I have no problem with that. But it's best not to advertise the apparition beforehand. If Our Lady comes, then she comes!" She did. That beautiful evening of prayer can still be viewed at:
Cardinal George also welcomed Mary TV to stream the evening of prayer in his Cathedral. It was the first time an apparition was streamed LIVE to the world. (Fr. Petar Ljubicic had told a friend he was excited because it would be the first time he would be able to see a visionary's face during an apparition!)
