(Mystic Post | By Stephen K. Ryan) - Are there really any words to describe what Cardinal Schonborn, the Archbishop of Vienna, is undertaking right now in Europe?
Can we compare Cardinal Schonborn’s actions today to anything else in the modern era of the Catholic Church?
To fully understand Cardinal Schonborn’s incomparable pursuit, first it must be understood that Cardinal Schonborn, the Archbishop
of Vienna, is a giant figure in the Catholic Church. Cardinal Schonborn is a former student and close friend of Pope Benedict XVI. He serves as a member of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Earlier this year he was appointed as the first member of the newly created Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization. The young Cardinal is widely recognized as “Palabile” (could one day be Pope) and as Editorial Director of the Catholic Catechism – the official rule book of the Catholic Church – he is
greatly respected throughout the world.
Cardinal Schoborn’s gravitas and impeccable catholic credentials speak for themselves, and so within this context, we find it extraordinary that he is proclaiming, from the roof tops, or more accurately, from inside the great St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, Austria, that the Blessed Mother is now appearing on earth in an unprecedented fashion to six “Visionaries” and he is urging the Catholic faithful to pay close attention. The Austrian Archbishop, by his actions today, unequivocally lends support to claims that the Blessed Virgin Mary is revealing Herself to the world and that her presence on earth is for the clear purpose of demonstrating that God truly exists. Cardinal Schonborrn also insists that the Blessed Mother is bringing important messages of peace for a world that has little peace. Her messages of peace are accompanied by an urgent and incessant plea for all of humanity to reconcile with God.
In an extraordinary event in Vienna, Austria, Cardinal Schonborn celebrated Mass with a man who claims to see and speak to the Blessed Virgin Mary. His name is Ivan Dragicevic. Ivan is one of six visionaries who say they see the Virgin Mary and these six people are at that center of a mysterious phenomenon known the world over as “Medjugorje” Ivan, is Croation and comes from the town of Medjugorje located in Bosnia and Herzegovinain and he has experienced daily apparitions with the Blessed Mother since June of 1981.
