Understanding Medjugorje: A Reply to Donal Anthony Foley
by Daniel Klimek
December 29, 2010
A few years ago, in June 2006, British author Donal Anthony Foley shared a press release regarding his book about Medjugorje. The press release explained:
News release for 26th anniversary of first Medjugorje visions – 22 June 2006
Understanding Medjugorje: Heavenly Visions or Religious Illusion? (Theotokos Books), by Donal Anthony Foley, was published just over a year ago but there has yet to be any cogent criticism of it.
Foley and his publicists are right. There has yet to be a cogent response to the book. Foley's book is the latest work by a Medjugorje critic that is highly antagonistic toward the apparitions in the Bosnian village and considers them to be a religious illusion. It is also a book that to this day is hailed by Medjugorje critics as a must-read, as the work that exposes what Medjugorje truly is. Nevertheless, in light of Foley's recognition that a cogent criticism has yet to be offered, here at Ministry Values we proudly and seriously accept the challenge. Our response to Mr. Foley is undertaken for the pursuit of truth, on this highly important subject that has affected millions of Catholics, and we plan to pursue our objective with the most serious scholarly rigor and erudition.
