The Triumph to return to B.C.
Pilgrims pray at a statue of Mary in 2011 on Apparition Hill in Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina. The site is where six village children first claimed to see Mary in June 1981. The Vatican ambassador to the United States reminded bishops of a doctrinal congregation ruling that it was not yet possible "to state that there were apparitions or supernatural revelations" by visionaries in Medjugorje.

A documentary about the reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Medjugorje is to return to cinemas across B.C. Screenings of The Triumph are scheduled for after Christmas, according to Henry Kovacic, director of the Ave Maria Centre of Peace in Toronto. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
