This had me close to tears. I don't know about the authenticity of Medjugorje -- and there are have been a number of things to suggest it's suspicious -- but I do know a number of people who have experienced extraordinary graces of long-lasting, life-changing conversion when making pilgrimages there.

There are thousands of Confessions being heard, countless rosaries being prayed and hundreds of Masses offered daily and weekly.....Could be another instance of Our Lord changing water into wine (i.e. a fake apparition was "hijacked" by God to turn it against satan). 😇 😉

Perhaps the initial vision was genuine and then they seers turned it into something it wasn't...??

In any event, there's certainly a lot of genuine faith and devotion going on there. That's obvious.

I may have mentioned this account before. I know someone who had a grace of conversion many years ago while attending the movie "Jesus Christ Superstar", and left the theater sobbing over what Christ had suffered and they hadn't even given it a thought. I have also read about a satanist who was converted at a Black Mass when he saw the hatred being hurled against the Blessed Sacrament, proving it must be Real.....

So God can use anything....
