$100,000 Goal
Down to $16,316 Left to Raise!

If you’ve donated, pray for “others” to give…

 

 

Your support yesterday, has brought the 2016 Medjugorje.com budget plea to only $16,316 left to go! With just a few more days like this, we can close it out very quickly. Thank you for your donations, and please continue to pray for many “others” to respond to this call. Your giving is a gift of salvation for impoverished souls. But, not only are souls saved from perdition, many are introduced to Our Lady, by God’s grace, through the instrument of Medjugorje.com. Thank you. If ever there was a time in history where a monetary donation can literally lead to souls being saved, this moment of salvation history is it. Thank you.

You can make your donation online here… Thank you.

We’re Below $20,000!
Only $19,554 to Go


We are down to $19,554 left to close out the 2016 Medjugorje.com budget! Thank you for those who have given the $80,446! These funds are the minimum needed to keep Caritas’ site online, improving and expanding for 2016. Please, if you have not given or can afford to give again, help to close this out this week! There is no site like Medjugorje.com. It has a whole war-machine behind it: the people, the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages, logistics and many more parts that make it the #1 site to go to for conversion and learning about Our Lady’s messages, and as your tool to spread them to the whole world. Without this backing, Medjugorje.com would need a budget of $600,000 plus, to be where it is.


We cannot drag out this campaign. A large number of people uses this site regularly, and there is always in many, a false security that the money will be raised so, “I don’t have to worry about it,” which keep goals from being reached. You cannot depend that everyone else will give. A successful site like Medjugorje.com, sometimes cripples itself with a mentality that others will give. It won’t happen if you are the “other” that doesn’t give. Please give something in the next 3 days to finish the 2016 budget and we promise that you will see the result through the coming months and be consoled that you were glad to be a part of all the new uses for your and “other’s” daily life. Thank you very much.

A Seize the Moment!!
Your Donation Doubled Dollar for Dollar the Next 72 Hours


We are excited to announce: We have an individual who will donate a dollar for every dollar that you donate for the next 72 hours to Medjugorje.com, in order to meet the $100,000 goal! This is a great blessing to help close this out. This ends at midnight on Thursday, February 4, 2016. This is tremendous news. If you donate $1.00, it is matched and will double your donation to $2.00; $100.00 to $200.00; $5000.00 to $10,000.00; $10,000 to $20,000! We have not had so far in this fund, such an opportunity for your donation to be doubled. The individual told us it is out of love for Our Lady, and to bring more people to Her through medjugorje.com, as has happened to he and his wife. We have until midnight Thursday, February 4, 2016 to raise all the money we can. This is a “seize the moment”. Donate yourself and challenge others to donate also. Our Lady said today, February 2, 2016:
 

“…be poor in spirit…”


We are surrounded by things and conveniences, that even if we are poor, we live well beyond what the rich lived many years ago. Be poor in spirit and double your donation for those who cannot afford to give. We are very excited of what could happen in the next 72 hours. Please help so we can quickly close this out and begin implementing. We will do our best to update the chart several times daily during the next 72 hours, so you can monitor the progress throughout the day. This is a real prayer need for the next 72 hours to move many hearts to contribute. Pray, pray, pray and keep checking the chart below as an incentive to pray for you and others to spread this important “seize the moment” to act immediately. Several from the Community will be answering the phones until midnight CST, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and begin answering at 5:00 a.m. You can call and ask any questions or discuss this mission, and why we must act now. Please do all you can to give and remember your donation will be doubled. Call now and speak live, to a community member, at 205-672-2000 (overseas dial 001-205-672-2000), to donate by check or credit card, or visit here to donate online. Thank you.

Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje’s February 2, 2016 Message
Given through Mirjana on the Day for Non-Believers

 

“Dear children, I have called you and am calling you anew to come to know my Son, to come to know the truth. I am with you and am praying for you to succeed. My children, you must pray much in order to have all the more love and patience; to know how to endure sacrifice and to be poor in spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, my Son is always with you. His Church is born in every heart that comes to know Him. Pray that you can come to know my Son; pray that your soul may be one with Him. That is the prayer and the love which draws others and makes you my apostles. I am looking at you with love, with a motherly love. I know you; I know your pain and sorrows, because I also suffered in silence. My faith gave me love and hope. I repeat, the Resurrection of my Son and my Assumption into Heaven is hope and love for you. Therefore, my children, pray to come to know the truth; to have firm faith which will lead your heart and which will transform your pain and sufferings into love and hope. Thank you.”

„Draga djeco, Pozivala sam vas i iznova vas pozivam da spoznate moga Sina, da spoznate istinu. Ja sam s vama i molim se da uspijete. Djeco moja, morate mnogo moliti da biste imali što više ljubavi i strpljenja, da biste znali podnijeti žrtvu i da biste bili siromašni u duhu. Moj Sin je po Duhu Svetom uvijek s vama. Njegova se Crkva ra?a u svakom srcu koje ga spozna. Molite da možete spoznati moga Sina, molite da vaša duša bude jedno s njim. To je molitva, to je ljubav koja privla?i druge i ?ini vas mojim apostolima. Gledam vas s ljubavlju, maj?inskom ljubavlju. Poznam vas, poznam vaše boli i tuge, jer i ja sam u tišini patila. Moja vjera mi je davala ljubav i nadu. Ponavljam, Uskrsnu?e moga Sina i moje Uznesenje na Nebo je nada i ljubav za vas. Zato, djeco moja, molite da spoznate istinu, da imate ?vrstu vjeru koja ?e voditi vaše srce i koja ?e vaše boli i patnje znati preobraziti u ljubav i nadu. Hvala vam.”

“Cari figli, vi ho invitati e vi invito nuovamente a conoscere mio Figlio, a conoscere la verità. Io sono con voi e prego che ci riusciate. Figli miei, dovete pregare molto per avere quanto più amore e pazienza possibile, per saper sopportare il sacrificio ed essere poveri in spirito. Mio Figlio, per mezzo dello Spirito Santo, è sempre con voi. La sua Chiesa nasce in ogni cuore che lo conosce. Pregate per poter conoscere mio Figlio, pregate affinché la vostra anima sia una cosa sola con lui. È questa la preghiera ed è questo l’amore che attira gli altri e vi rende miei apostoli. Vi guardo con amore, con amore materno. Vi conosco, conosco i vostri dolori e le vostre afflizioni, perché anch’io ho sofferto in silenzio. La mia fede mi ha dato amore e speranza. Vi ripeto: la Risurrezione di mio Figlio e la mia Assunzione al Cielo sono per voi speranza e amore. Perciò, figli miei, pregate per conoscere la verità, per avere una fede salda, che guidi i vostri cuori e sappia trasformare le vostre sofferenze e i vostri dolori in amore e speranza. Vi ringrazio”

Where Does $100,000 Go? and One More Important Announcement

Update January 22, 2016 A.D.

Update January 22, 2016 A.D.
9:00 PM CST

Where Does $100,000 Go?



First, to be clear, we are not changing the home page of Medjugorje.com. All work being done is internal and extensive. Even as there is no comparable Medjugorje site that produces the way Medjugorje.com does, we have been analyzing new functions, platforms, and “turbo-ing,” many parts of the site, upgrading them. For several years, we’ve put off these changes, but now is the time to implement these upgrades and modifications.


Why is all this necessary? So we won’t crash.


On June 25, 2009, the internet crashed. What caused the crash was the news of the death of the falsely idolized Michael Jackson. The network glitch that caused the crash, was initiated by 5 million people doing a Google search in one single second. Five million people is not a lot of traffic. Judging by the standard of how the death of one person can cause such a crash, what can we assess would happen when it is announced on some future date that in three day’s time, a secret will be released? A secret that is sure to cause the death of many ‘idols’? How many people will be searching “Medjugorje” throughout the entire world? Our Lady said on July 16, 1984:

“…there will be in the future signs concerning sinners, unbelievers, alcoholics, and young people…”



We are building an infrastructure for such an event. We have explained all of this before, but refresh it in light of our recent plea.


Below are the actual costs of what it takes to operate and implement changes on the site, Medjugorje.com. Included in the annual cost, is the cost of upgrading by Professional Services based in the United States.


The Professional Services, in union with our own team, will be building new platforms for several components:
 

One major component is not available on any Medjugorje English website. The building of this platform will turn Medjugorje.com into what is called a “responsive design,” meaning that the site will automatically resize itself to fit your computer, phone, tablet, or other devices. The homepage will look similar, if not exactly the same, but will fit better.


These Professional Services, will have to be hired out of house. It will also include a major component, which will be a completely new Medjugorje Message and word search that has been in development for four years. Our current Medjugorje message search, though still the best Medjugorje message search available in the world of Medjugorje, is about to get better. Our present search is 11 years old! Yet, it still works. We are making the Medjugorje message search faster, and will be adding more simplicity, yet more practical functional use, that will be revealed when the time comes to launch the new component.


Included as well, is the new global site search, which will also be updated to be faster and more relevant to your search words.


Radio WAVE
will also be updated with new features that are yet to be announced.


The following chart shows the breakdown of overall costs. The total costs exceeds $100,000. The excess costs will be subsidized by Caritas of Birmingham. Caritas currently covers the cost of the design department, Radio WAVE studio, travel expenses, and many other expenses. Just travel expenses alone, directly related to Medjugorje.com, consists of nine-plus flights to Medjugorje yearly. Caritas will continue to cover these costs.




The following is the Medjugorje.com budget broken down:

Thereby through their struggles, and crisis, people of all cultures are being introduced to Our Lady and Medjugorje. The more money we have for this, the more people are introduced to Our Lady.

One More Important Announcement


An individual, who has a very great love for Our Lady, has stepped forward with a $6,000 donation! This will jump us up ahead a great deal, 6% of the total budget. We are asking for others to match that same amount, which will quickly bring this to a close, and allow us to “unstall” the site. Remember that a $1,000 donation knocks out 1% of the needed budget.


In the past we tried to give 30 days notice before shutting down the site, but this year did not have that luxury. We need to raise these funds quickly and get to work on bringing to you what so many have asked for. We know that those of you who are fed on a daily basis by what a Friend of Medjugorje offers, and have walked with the mission of Caritas do not need an explanation of the costs above, but understand that these are real costs. An organization the size and scope of Caritas of Birmingham, if having to hire individuals, rent office space, pay for studio technicians would easily incur costs of over half a million dollars or more. With the backing of the mission of Caritas and the Caritas Community, we are able to cover all these expenses with upfront costs and keep operating costs to a bare minimum. Comparable major international ministries operating on the scale of Caritas, often provides less services and practical usage than Medjugorje.com, yet, spend far more monies than Caritas spends. When you give through Caritas, you give more, as we stretch to give more for every dollar donated.

Alert Notice

Four Years Ago - January 13, 2012


“Everything OK?” the Coast Guard asked.

“Affirmative,” was the reply. Just a “small technical failure.”

Five minutes later, the coast guard radioed again, requesting the ship’s position, and again asking whether it was in trouble.

“We’ve only got a technical problem…” was the reply. “But as soon as it's resolved, we’ll communicate to you.”

This was the last radio call from the Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia.
Everything was not okay… The ship keeled over a few hours later.


In a world where many voices say that all is okay…
Where Presidents tell entire nations that we’ve bounced back…
that we are stronger than ever…



Is it true?



“The ship of this world is tipping over. The litmus test, the thermometer of whether or not this is true, is almost 35 years of daily apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje.”

A Friend of Medjugorje


Everything is not okay…



For years, a Friend of Medjugorje has understood the reason why Our Lady is coming to Medjugorje. The ship of this world is sinking. Our Lady of Medjugorje said on February 17, 1984:


“…The world has been drawn into a great whirlpool. It does not know what it is doing. It does not realize in what sin it is sinking…”


Since Mej.com was first released in 2006, millions of people across the world have been able to come to understand Medjugorje in a whole new light. The first major revamping of the site, was released on June 1, 2009, as the new Medjugorje.com.  It caused a revolution 6 months later, when over the next two years almost all other Medjugorje sites  began changing their style and presentation to better represent Medjugorje.  Medjugorje.com caused an initiation for all Medjugorje websites to improve their sites. Others launched new Medjugorje initiatives online. In the media-driven frenzy of the status of Medjugorje and the Vatican, tens of thousands have found clarity and discernment through Caritas of Birmingham's Medjugorje.com, operated by the Community of Caritas. Your support through Medjugorje.com, has helped change the whole Medjugorje world.  Medjugorje.com is being reviewed and improved for 2016.  New or improved ways to spread Our Lady’s messages across the world, and propagate them into cultures across the earth.



But, we cannot continue without your support.



The ship of this world will continue on it’s way tipping over, while Our Lady continues to try and draw it on a new path. Will you be a part of helping Our Lady? Through Caritas’ outreach of Medjugorje.com, you can be an active part of Our Lady’s rescue mission.

In the past, the annual budget to operate Medjugorje.com, was $208,000 for a year. With all of the complex infrastructure associated with Medjugorje.com, the building of systems, and maintenance, this budget was necessary.


We have not asked for this annual budget since 2011.



In the past 4 years, we have gradually decreased costs wherever possible, making Medjugorje.com more efficient at the same time, and continuing to offer new features and sections for your continued spiritual support. Because of our efficiency, our annual budget has decreased to $100,000 which we must quickly raise in order to continue offering Medjugorje.com, free to the world’s population.


We have known that we needed to launch a campaign to continue for 2016.  Fortunately an individual has stepped forward to begin the budget for the year with a $10,000 donation, this was our sign to move now!  Therefore, an additional $90,000 is needed to be quickly raised. Please donate.  Inform others to donate throughout all avenues on the internet.  Spread this need to all you know so Medjugorje.com will not be “stalled” very long.  A campaign like this takes full attention of a staff of 10 people,  to begin the implementation of the budget and projects.  We are in stall mode until these funds are raised.  We have been kick-started with the gift of a $10,000 donation.  If you can match this, please do so. 


It will take 10 people giving $10,000 each to make the 2016’s budget.

100 people giving $1000.00 each = $100,000 budget

200 people giving $500.00 each 
= $100,000 budget

400 people giving $250.00 each 
= $100,000 budget

1,000 people giving $100.00 each 
= $100,000 budget

1333 people giving $75.00 each 
= $100,000 budget

2000 people giving $50.00 each 
= $100,000 budget

4,000 people giving $25.00 each 
= $100,000 budget


The $100,000.00 is the solid base budget for the year’s expenses.  Much of the 
year’s budget is to cover hidden costs like the hosting, Radio WAVE, etc. Included in this budget is upgrading the core platform of the site, while maintaining the same look and feel that many have come to be used to. Often we have seen organizations do major upgrades and change the entire look and feel of their site, only to find that their visitors can no longer find their way around anymore. We do not intend to change that which is good and works, like the look and feel of the site that thousands have gotten used to, and that sparked a revolution in the Medjugorje world.


Any extra donations throughout the year of 2016 will go to advancing the site and its promoting, advertising, etc., in many avenues to catch souls in different venues, introducing them to Our Lady.


“...Live with love the messages I give and…
Transmit them to the whole world…” 
February 25, 1995

Check the chart below daily and be active in introducing people until we reach the goal!  Please pray, throughout the day, for this goal to be reached within a few days.  Offer sacrifices, communions, 9 hour novenas, and prayers in front of the Tabernacle.  This will not happen quickly without yours and our prayers.  Thank you.
