Statue of Mary at Medjugorje

Medjugorje reportedly sees a decline in pilgrims after the Pope says a ruling on the apparitions is imminent

The diocese of Leiria-Fátima says Francis’s visit will coincide with the centenary of the Apparitions of Fatima

Pope Francis says Mary is ‘not a postmaster of the post office sending messages every day’

The rules were approved in 1978 but only made available in Latin

Mariette Beco had the visions in 1933 in the small town of Banneux in Belgium
