This article presents the history of six young healthy adults experiencing an apparition on a daily basis over a prolonged period. The medical tests suggest that there is objective and subjective or nonobjective visionary experience.
January 2003 - Dr. Frantisek Mracek, a doctor in natural sciences from Prague, sent to us an interesting scientific study about a disputed Vicka’s ecstasy from January 14, 1985.
We wish to put it at the disposition of all the friends of Medjugorje. (Text and English translation by www.verite.cz)
In a great number of states a British television film „The Miraculous Apparitions“ made by journalist A.C. Clarke was shown. In this film its author tries to explain mysterious phenomena occuring during Marian apparitions as if it happened in natural way. Unfortunately these explanations are from point of view of physics, optics and medicine pretty untrustworthy. Let us think about case of Vicka´s ecstasy in Medjugorje.
by A Friend of Medjugorje
In Medjugorje, on June 24, 1981, six young people entered into an experience that has continued nearly three decades later. With their experience, they have drawn men from every continent on the earth to Medjugorje; people from every race, religion, every walk of life, the rich and the poor, the simple and the intelligent, believers and atheists, those known by the world and those unknown. Is the experience of the so-called visionaries real? Can reasonable people accept their testimony? Are the visionaries seeing what they say they are seeing? Can an average person discern for themselves if their experience is authentic?
