Cardinal Vinko Puljic

By Jakob Marschner

Later this year the Vatican Commission that investigates the events of Medjugorje will end its work and report to the Pope, says Cardinal Vinko Puljic of Sarajevo who is a member of the Commission himself. Work is still going on but we must be finished this year, the highest ranking prelate of Bosnia and Hercegovina told a press conference on Tuesday.

Before the end of 2012, the excitement of millions of people worldwide will come to an end. The Vatican Commission on Medjugorje plans to have rendered its final report to Pope Benedict XVI when the bells ring in 2013, Cardinal Vinko Puljic of Sarajevo informed during a press conference on February 14.

”Later this year we want to finish our work and give our opinion to the Pope so that he can express his judgment. I can not talk about what the Commission does because I am bound to secrecy. Our work is still going on. This year, however, we must finish it” Cardinal Puljic informed according to ASCA, an Italian news agency.

If the Commission stays on the schedule laid out by Cardinal Puljic, it will have worked little less than three years when it renders its report to the Pope. Presided over by Cardinal Camillo Ruini, the Commission was announced by the Vatican on March 17th 2010.
