Medjugorje Revisited: 30 Years of Visions  or Religious Fraud?
Medjugorje Revisited: 30 Years of Visions or Religious Fraud?
Price: £7.51

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for all Medugorje devotees, 9 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without a doubt the best book I've read on Medugorje and I believe it is a book that needs to be read by everyone who believes in the apparitions of Medugorje. I first visited Medugorje in 2003 and absolutely fell in love with Our Lady as a result of being there and my devotion to her became more intense and meaningful. I continued to go for a few years and became friendly with some of the visionaries and was in in on some of the "alleged apparitions" I would always defend Medugorje if anyone said anything negative until I started to have my own doubts due to hearing a few things from very reliable sources that both shocked and startled me! As a result of this I started to look into the facts of Medugorje scouring the Internet for any information on the early days there, I also for the first time read the messages which I found to be very repetitive and without substance, I have to admit I had never read one message until then! On my last visit there I spoke about my concerns with a very prominent person who tried to assure me and said my doubts were the devil trying to confuse me, I told her I didn't think the messages were from Heaven and that they were the same old thing month in and out over decades and she said to me " they have to be repetitive as we are not doing what the Gospa has asked of us and therefore she needs to remind us" she the went in to give an example " if a mother asks her child to tidy their room and they don't do it will she not continue to ask until they do?" I said " of course she would continue to ask them but that leaves us with the contradiction contained in the messages, Our Lady gives the message and then thanks for having responded to her call"! I then said "how can she thank us for having responded to her call if we are not doing what she has asked?" This just left me feeling things were not quite right there but it was not until I was told of a terrible scandal involving a very prominent person in Medugorje that I thought this can not be of God, there is no way this would happen if the Blesed Virigin was truly appearing here! I shared this great concern and was told that the where Our Lady is the devil is and that the devil wanted nothing more than to discredit Medugorje. At that time I was so confused because I had definitely believed that Our Lady was appearing there but couldn't believe it now that I knew what I did and this left me thinking "how could Our Lady do this? This has got to be the most cruel thing ever to lead many people there and for it to be fraudulent" I just couldn't get my head around this and felt quite down about the whole thing and it was then that I thought that perhaps Our Lady did indeed appear there in the early days but because of the disobedience could not continue until one day in front of the Blessed Sacrament after praying about the situation I came realise that it was probably of diabolical nature. It was shortly after that whilst browsing the internet about other fraudulent apparitions I came across a story about Sr Magdalina of the Cross and couldn't believe the similarities between her and Medugorje. Sr Magdelina became a Franciscan nun and many people came from all over Spain and beyond to hear her incredible testimonies and even experience cures of a miraculous nature, she deceived many including Priests, nuns, Bishops and Royalty even a Cardinal gave her a gift in thanksgiving and this increased the admiration and devotion of her sisters in the convent. She not only performed miracles but she had given prophecies including the death of King Ferdinand for the following year which came to pass as foretold! I was in utter amazement at how The Lord led me to this site and even more so because of the similarities contained in her life and that of the seers of Medugorje. The story of Sr Magdalina led me to abandon the notion that perhaps Our Lady had appeared at all even in the early days and that the Medugorje apparitions were most likely of diabolical nature from the beginning. I would urge everyone who's never heard of Sr Magdalina of the Cross to read about her and see the comparison between her fame and that of the seers of Medugorje for themselves. Thanks be to God Sr Magdelina was received into the Church after she admitted to her deception and lies and her addition that she had sold her soul to the devil as a child! She was excorcised and by the grace of God she died in sanctity. I have to add here that I'm not sure the children of Medugorje deliberately set out to deceive and I do think they possibly were deceived themselves in the beginning, however I do believe they started deceiving after the day the visions were supposed to end and even more so after reading this well documented book "Medugorje revisited" which contains many things I wasn't previously aware of and in fact it has opened my eyes to the truth even although it doesn't contain the even more scandalous events that I was told from a very reliable source! I think we all need to pray and fast for the visionaries of Medugorje that they get the grace to admit that they have deceived millions of people and ask God to forgive them like Sr Magdalina of the Cross did. Sr Magdalina was the devil's saint for 40 years and she managed to escape from her evil pact through extraordinary repentance. Let's pray that the seers of Medugorje get extraordinary grace to do likewise. I am now in no doubt whatsoever that Medugorje was set up to detract from the TRUE APPARITONS OF FATIMA and I no longer feel confused about my own experience and in fact I'm so blessed to have been given the grace to accept the will of God in this instance and to know that the truth will always prevail. Medugorje can not go on forever and even although it's been going on for over 34 years don't forget Sr Magdelina did not go on forever and her deception lasted 40 years! Our Lady of Fatima pray for us 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

This book is worth it's weight in gold. I don't have much to say that could or would do this book justice! It is one of those books that you just can't put down but it is also a book to be read over and over again as it needs to be digested like a good meal. It is both nourishing and edifying. I wish I could buy a copy for everyone I know! This book is a must for all Christians and non Christians alike

5.0 out of 5 stars Frank honest and humbling!, 4 April 2014
This review is from: This is Me (Kindle Edition)
Michelle Collins has given a frank open and heartwarming account of her life. It is always easy to judge someone based on media reports and often as in the case of recent scandal involving celebrity or famous people the media have been correct in their facts. I view Ms Collins in a different light after reading her book on kindle. I was so engrossed by the content I could not put it down and finished it in a day! She is a real trooper who had worked hard at both relationship issues and work issues but most of all she has worked hard for her daughter Maia whom she clearly loves more than any fame or wealth. I found the comparison with her own mum extraordinary as she too was a single mum determined to do the best for her girls. It must be lovely for her mum to see her girls do well and she sounds like a lovely lady. Michelle strikes me as someone who loves acting but actually shuns celebrity status which unfortunately in her case had seemed to dominate much of her career. This book is an open and honest account of her life including her struggles as well as her joys. She comes accross as a really lovely family oriented person with a big heart not only for her own family and friends but for the wider community in general. I loved the book and actually fiound myself liking her as a person who has so much more to give than entertaining us with her acting. Well done Michelle and thank you for sharing your story. You will touch many hearts with this book

This is a disappointment. I have the book which is great but the layout of this kindle edition is very poorly done. I would not recommend that anyone buys this on kindle because not only is it badly done it is also expensive. Buy the book instead!

This a beautiful rendition of the Liturgy of St John Chrysostym. I have the album sung in Slavonic and Ukrainian and they are.exceptionally moving but to hear the Liturgy sung in English and understand every word is breathtaking. I highly recommend this edition sung by the Russian Orthodox Cathedral choir in London.

I absolutely love this edition of the bible and it is one of the best on kindle as the words of Christ are highlighted in red.i find this a great advantage when I want a very quick reference regarding what Our Lord himself says regarding the way we should live our lives. I think would be a good bible for beginners to the word of God and the kindle edition is a very good price.

I have been wearing fitflops for a few years now and these are by far the most beautiful ones made by fitflop to date. They are a slightly different shape to my previous ones but are in fact more comfortable and the beautiful crystals just sparkle like diamonds! I love these

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and understand, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bible is written in today's language which is ideal for young and old alike who find it hard to understand the bible. I would definitely recommend it to new Christians especially hose who have had no experience of Christ in their lives. I have several bibles as I like to compare translations and this one is really quite different in that it speaks to you in today's modern easy to understand English. If you are someone who wants to read the word of God but finds the bible hard to understand then this bible is definitely for you

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have been called A priest in crisis!, 29 April 2013
Very immature, melodramatic book written by a very immature emotionally disturbed Priest! I bought this book based on the title expecting an insight into the current state of the Priesthood within the Catholic Church but to my disappointment found a book full of slander and unsubstantiated attack on several individuals who are NOT priests and who in fact have nothing to do with the priesthood. The book is about one Priest's grievances with just about everyone he comes into contact with and it is clear from the style of writing that he lacks understanding, knowledge,wisdom, spirituality, piety and fear of The Lord! He is an emotionally immature individual who just rants on and on gives the reader no credible insight into the actual current crisis within the Church! Even with his melodramatic claims the book is utterly boring avoid!

Lovely rendition of O holy night. I sampled a few before choosing this one. I have a few CD's by the Cambridge singers and they never disappoint
