Patrick Madrid discussed the Medjugorje case today on Ave Maria Radio’s “Al Kresta Show” today. Speaking from a favorable point of view on the alleged apparition was Fr. Neil Buchlein, a pastor from West Virginia. You can hear a replay of the show over at Patrick’s blog.
While Fr. Buchlein got much more air time than Patrick did, he did seem to back off in his approach as the conversation progressed. He eventually resorted to saying that, for people who have good experiences at Medjugorje, Church approval really isn’t all that necessary. I had to wonder if that might have been his first exposure to the skeptical case, brief as it was.
