Can the phenomenon be more regular than the 2nd and 25th of each month?
Or is the ‘phenomenon’ a reference to the spiritual fruits and not the apparitions and their promotion?

the potential for extremes is there...Which is probably why the Holy See is structuring a programme of pastoral guidance. By implying that the faithful have needs in pastoral guidance suggests that not all is hunk-dory at Medjugorje, despite the recognised spiritual fruits and the Commission’s vote in accepting the validity of the apparitions that happened during the first week or so.
Vatican Insider has learnt that the Commission has focused mainly on the first phase of apparitions [...] Some of the Commission’s members have highlighted the need for a change of pace in the provision of pastoral care to millions of faithful who come to Medjugorje from all over the world…
In addition, 13 members and experts out of the 14 present voted in favor of the constitution of “an authority dependent on the Holy See” in Medjugorje as well as the transformation of the parish into a pontifical sanctuary. A decision based on pastoral reasons - the care of millions of pilgrims, avoiding the formation of “parallel churches”, clarity on economic issues - which would not imply the recognition of the supernatural nature of the apparitions.As recently as last month the Pope discussed the rise of ‘parallel churches’... https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2017/09/19/ ... -churches/
"In addition to the supernatural events, the pastoral care of pilgrims is important. It is the will of the Holy See to help legitimize the phenomenon so that the believers who come here can listen to the word of God, celebrate the sacraments, and experience true faithfulness. "‘Legitimize” instead of “regulate”
