According to Ave Maria Press, ABC's Nightline will air a documentary about Mary, the Mother of God, on Wednesday, June 29, to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the first apparition at Mejdugorje. The documentary will look at other apparitions and Mary's influence as well.
Ave Maria author Christine Watkins was interviewed for the documentary. (Various bloggers and Facebook messages state the the documentary will air on June 22.) As yet, there is no information on the Nightline schedule from the ABC Web site.
On April 13, 2010, NCR reported that "The Vatican had announced March 17 that at the request of the bishops of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith had established an international commission to investigate the claims of six young people who said Mary appeared to them daily beginning in 1981."
