The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has reached a negative conclusion regarding the authenticity of the reported Marian apparitions at Medjugorje, according to Italian media reports.

The CDF reportedly held a feria quarta meeting on June 24, at which the prelates discussed the findings of a special papal commission that had investigated the Medjugorje phenomenon. According to several Italian journalists—notably Vatican-watch Gianluca Barile—the CDF agreed with that commission’s finding that there is no evidence of supernatural activity at Medjugorje.

June 27 is the feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Here is one section of the "Akathist" in honor of that icon, sung by the trebes of the Schola Cantorum of St. Peter the Apostle, recorded on "Rejoice, O Full of Grace!", printed by the Order of st. Basil the Great, Uniontown PA.

Kondak 3

Mother of god, the power of the Most High God manifests itself in every place where your precious icon is devoutly honored. Here the sick regain their health, the suffering receive comfort, and those who dwell in darkness obtain the spiritual sight of the soul and body for you attract all with your goodness that you may lead them to your heart and thus turn them toward Christ, the never-setting Sun, when they sing: Alleluia!

Ikos 3

Mother of God, we have a precious jewel, your icon which came to us from the East. We bow before you as before a bright star and announcer of God's day for where you appear, salvation comes to those who sing to you:

Rejoice, O Unguarded Gate of paradise.
Rejoice, O Unlocked Treasure, from which all can profit.
Rejoice O Source of the living Water, ever-streaming.

Rejoice O Dew which falls upon the mount of Zion.
Rejoice O Sweet Potion for thirsty souls.
Rejoice for you gave the bread of fortitude to the hungry which strengthens people.

Rejoice O strong Bulwark Wall of God's city which embraces the whole world.
Rejoice O House of the Lord which is built on a hill-top.
Rejoice O Fruitful Hill upon which God made His Home.

Rejoice O Altar of Christ the King
Rejoice O Chamber of glory which never fades away

Rejoice, O Full of Grace, our Hope!
