Also relevant to determining the supernatural character of an apparition site would be any miraculous cures that take place. In July 1987, Newsweek magazine declared that "already 290 miracle healings [in Međugorje] are under study by Catholic physicians."
Several healings have been reported to have taken place in Medjugorje. Many of the physical healings are being investigated as to whether they are authentic healings or not. This procedure is a very long and time-consuming task, examining all medical records, history of the individuals etc. We will have to wait for sometime in the future as to whether or not the Church will recognize them as miraculous healings or not. But because of the several healings that have been reported and continue to be throughout the years of the apparitions, they are an important part of the whole picture of Medjugorje.
