The Catholic Defender: Pope St. John Paull II and Father Amorth "Medjugorje, Fortress against Satan" despite John Benko and his Snake Pit, steaming from Hell, pray for them.

Medjugorje: In St. John Paul II’s Own Words

When speaking with people regarding Medjugorje, I often find that people either know little to nothing about the reported apparitions of Mary that have lasted over 38 years and that continue to this day…

Or, they have a vague negative perception fueled by things they once heard or read many years ago.

I’ve also found that most have no idea that St. John Paul II personally believed in Medjugorje and spoke highly about it with Bishops and priests, stating such things as:

·      Mary’s coming to Medjugorje was an answer to his prayers.

·      Medjugorje is the continuation and extension of Fatima.

·      The fall of Communism in Poland should not be credited to him; but it is the work of Mary in Medjugorje and Fatima.

·      Today people have lost the supernatural. They find it in Medjugorje.

·      Medjugorje is “the Spiritual Heart” and “the Hope of the World”.

·      "Our Lady of Medjugorje will save America!"

1984: Pope John Paul II to Bishop Hnilica: “Medjugorje is a continuation, an extension of Fatima. Our Lady is appearing in communist countries primarily because of problems that originate in Russia.”

·      This was said while discussing the Consecration of Russia with Bishop Pavel Hnilica, who was speaking to the Pope of how he was able to enter Communist Moscow at the risk of further imprisonment (he had already been imprisoned for six years in a Communist work camp alongside tens of thousands of others), in order to Consecrate Russia as it’s bishop in union with Pope John Paul II’s Consecration on March 25, 1984.

Yesterday as reported in Catholic News Agency, Father Amorth, a renowned exorcist and vigorous supporter of Medjugorje ( He called it a "Fortress against Satan") in Rome released a book of memoirs in which he declares to know of the existence of Satanic sects in the Vatican where participation reaches all the way to the College of Cardinals.

In the book of memoirs released in February, the noted Italian exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth affirmed that "Yes, also in the Vatican there are members of Satanic sects." When asked if members of the clergy are involved or if this is within the lay community, he responded, "There are priests, monsignors and also cardinals!

The allegations of Fr Amorth – who, has said in the past that the scenes in the 1973 film The Exorcist are “substantially exact” – are recorded in Father Amorth: Memoirs of an Exorcist. My life fighting against Satan, a series of interviews edited by Marco Tosatti. He asked Amorth if Pope Benedict XVI himself knew of the existence of Satanic sects in the Vatican.“Of course he was informed ” replied Amorth. “But he does what he can. It's a horrifying thing."

But Father Armoth, in an extensive interview (here) finds a remedy against Satan in Medjugore -"Surely. Medjugorje is a fortress against Satan. Satan hates Medjugorje because it is a place of conversion, of prayer, of transformation of life."
