28 Days Mej.com’s Future?

As many of you know, mej.com had to go offline last February because of lack of funding. We pre-announced this deadline 60 days before in the hope to raise the funds needed for mej.com. Some responded, but not nearly enough. We, instead, were forced offline. We began to think perhaps mej.com was not important for the many who use it. However, once we went offline during the next eight days, the goal of two-hundred eight thousand dollars was raised. We were elated at the response.
 

Because you stepped forward to keep the present mej.com online, we have done everything we can to meet the responsibility we owe Our Lady and you who stepped forward, to give back something that is not just mediocre, but rather an invaluable tool for you to evangelize Medjugorje to the world. We wish to announce to you a “projected” launch date of Monday, June 1, 2009, for the new mej.com. This is a very ambitious date in the fact that we still easily have three months of work to launch the new mej.com site, and that is outside all the work involved in hosting Our Lady’s apparitions in July. However, as the projected goal to come online is June 1st, we are hopeful that with your prayers we can make every day we work on the site the fruit of what would take three days.
 

This cannot happen without your collaboration and contribution of prayer. We ask for divine inspiration, as well as divine assistance from the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the angels to advance three days for every one day we work. Pray we can make this deadline and will not have to adjust it. How big is this work to finish? First, we looked at this for a long time, a really long time; looking hard at Medjugorje, the future of the world, the future and the real possibility of no future for the internet at some point, and the reaching of hundreds of millions of people, even billions when the secrets are released. This and many other factors have been thoughtfully incorporated in what we do and how we proceed. But is it possible to reach even billions? There is an actual site on the internet that receives one billion hits in a day. When the entire world experiences the secrets, what kind of site, what kind of infrastructure must be in place? It will take the organization of a large work force, people manning stations, others responsible for correspondence, still others immediately resolving technical difficulties, dealing with a flood of accurate and inaccurate information, authenticating the information, feeding information to the world’s media and the people across the world who will hunger and thirst to know what in the world is Medjugorje, who is Our Lady, and what does She want? Our Lady’s peace plans are not just big, they are huge! Huge in the sense that their magnitude cannot be estimated or calculated until the events are in our midst. However, not being able to calculate the fullness of Our Lady’s plans and their magnitude should not keep us from anticipating what we should be doing now, in the time of grace. At the moment the events unfold, when everyone on earth will be divinely introduced to Our Lady through the secrets, ask yourself this question: Is it then that we all start thinking, “how do we feed the people of the world in a few days, months or even the next few years what has taken us 28 years thus far to learn? A plan which we are only just beginning to penetrate?” Mej.com is being built for you and for you to use as a tool to spread Our Lady’s plans. Our Lady said:



August 25, 2000

“…I desire to share my joy with you. In my Immaculate Heart I feel that there are many of those who have drawn closer to me and are, in a special way, carrying the victory of my Immaculate Heart in their hearts by praying and converting. I desire…to inspire you to work even more for God and His Kingdom…”

Our Lady tells us the “victory” of Her Heart grows in the world! Her victory, She feels, is in your heart. She tells us to work even more for God and His Kingdom! What victory does the Queen of Peace want?
 


December 25, 1990

“…by means of your lives help peace to reign on the whole earth…”

 

 

The Queen, whose victory She feels is imminent, whose Kingdom She reigns in, says to you to work even more for God and His Kingdom! Our Lady is giving us a heads up on what’s coming down and what’s coming up. What’s coming down is satan’s kingdom. What’s coming up is Our Lady’s reign in God’s Kingdom. The work for God’s Kingdom against satan’s kingdom, requires a lot, not only with our lives of holiness, but our work! We are talking about conquering the world. Two hundred and eight thousand dollars is a bargain to be prepared to have a tool to evangelize and spread Our Lady’s reign to hundreds of millions when the great moment of evangelization comes. And it is coming. Now is the time to prepare, not when the great moment arrives, as a thief in the night, while the home owner is asleep.
 

We are awake at Caritas, and mej.com is one of our major tools. Through much prayer and fasting, we feel Our Lady moving us in the right direction. We need your prayers to make the new mej.com everything Our Lady wishes this work to be. Our Lady prayed that peace:
 


April 25, 2009

“…become the highest treasure on this peaceless earth…”
 

 

Where is peace on this earth? In France, workers are kidnapping their bosses, holding them hostage to win labor disputes. A report from Times Online in the UK on April 23, 2009 goes on to state that there have been, “violent protests in private sector companies, left-wing students have blocked universities and unions are planning “demonstrations.” Former prime minister, Villepin, said that “There is a risk of revolution.” 1

Presently, Jamaica is bracing for violent demonstrations and deploying police and military at “strategic” locations.2

In Germany, an article released on April 24, 2009 entitled, “Germany’s Slump Risks ‘Explosive’ Mood As Second Banking Crisis Looms,” reported that Michael Soomer, leader of the DGB trade union federation, “called the latest wave of sackings a ‘declaration of war’ against Germany’s workers. ‘Social unrest can no longer be ruled out,’ he said… ‘the mood could turn explosive’ over the next three months.” 3

We heard from a close friend of ours today who lives in Mexico City. He wrote asking the Caritas Community for prayers for Mexico. He said:

“Mexico, our country, is going through very difficult times and situations, that you and I could very well interpret as a purification: a fight between the State and the drug dealer’s networks, kidnappers and organized crime, that has caused the death and pain of a lot of people in many families. On top of the financial economic crisis, a few days ago an alarming swine flu epidemic broke out in the capital of the country and in all the metropolitan areas. The Government is taking extreme measures to prevent its spreading, to a point that all of the students from kindergarten to college, are not attending their classes; and yesterday was the first Sunday since the 17th century, when a cholera epidemic broke out, that masses were not celebrated on Sunday in any of the city churches.

“Only two masses were celebrated behind closed doors: one in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and one in the Cathedral. You can imagine what we felt at seeing the Eternal Sacrifice prevented from being celebrated in our City, and by not being able to have Communion. At the present moment we do not know how long this situation might last…”

While the flu crisis is waning, the wind being taken out of its sails, it is not necessary to go on to prove we are in a very “peaceless” world. We are in a melt down. Everything of God struggles to rise up, everything of satan struggles not to fall down. The victory, the reign, the triumph of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart is struggling to birth painfully, laboriously, right out of the heart of man. The victory will be through you, through your heart!


August 25, 2000

“…In my Immaculate Heart I feel that there are many of those who have drawn closer to me and are, in a special way, carrying the victory of my Immaculate Heart in their hearts…”
 

 

The contention rising up between satan and Our Lady is in our midst. The battle of the Woman against the dragon in Revelation, Chapter 12, is raging. What many thought just 12 months ago were invincible and stable institutions have become unstable and are disintegrating. What is not of God is in melt-down. And when these false gods crumble, what will those who come out of the rubble seek? The Immaculate, Radiant, Pure One who will reside in the hearts of Her children, Her apostles taking the Gospel of Mary to a new time when man will get to know God more.
 


January 25, 1993

“…I am with you, and I guide you into a new time, a time which God gives you as grace, so that you may get to know Him more…”

A springtime, a flourishing of Christianity for all the Earth! The harvest is great, the workers are few. Along with the other infrastructures of Caritas, mej.com, with God’s grace, is a Combine, powered by what’s in our hearts to harvest the crop of souls across the world. Our Lady has taught us to think big. This means we must think big in all our work. Think big because Our Lady’s plans are big, so big She tells us, it is a great plan for all the Earth’s salvation!
 


January 25, 1987

“…a great plan for the salvation of mankind…”
 


We must think bigger than what we understand. The new mej.com, the printing capabilities of Caritas’ print shop, Caritas’ communication systems, with the Community of Caritas, makes up a whole infrastructure that thinks of the future, of the great future evangelization. Caritas structures itself with confidence that Our Lady will collaborate with the plans of Caritas and the Community. Why? Because She says and asks for it.

October, 31, 1988

“…I want to collaborate with you…”

Following the messages, incorporating them into daily life and with good will, anyone can expect Our Lady’s collaboration! She wants you, also, to collaborate with Her.
 


January 2, 1989

“…I need your collaboration…”

You have not seen a lot of new information these weeks on mej.com. When one sees a bee hive from the outside it looks inactive, but placing one’s ear to it, the hum of activity can clearly be heard. Our nights and days are extremely active, no rest, in order to give you back what you gave in donations in February. We need your prayers to meet the June 1st goal.


We sense Our Lady’s presence in our work at this moment. We are overwhelmed with preparations for Our Lady’s coming for July 1-5 and doing the necessary work to launch mej.com, all the while keeping the mission running and sustaining the Community’s needs. We are, however, glad for it. Our Lady has given us work. Our lives are meaningful and fruitful. But we do need your collaborative prayers to assist us that we can assist you to reach your loved ones and the future generations. Pray daily and sacrifice for the fruit and the launch date, June 1, 2009, that it may be accomplished. Millions in the future will be affected by these prayers of yours today!


If you would like to be part of the exciting group of 4,000 core group members who form the foundation base to fund mej.com for at least 14 cents per day to bring Our Lady to hundreds of millions in the future, and you believe this work worthy of your support, to partner with us, click here…. Thank you.
 

In the Love of Our Lady,

Friend of Medjugojre

Command center and work flow for the development of mej.com’s new site. A 10 ft. by 12 ft. flow chart looms over part of the team who struggles to bring into reality what presently does not exist in the Medjugorje Movement. Too big to get our minds around of how to conceive and build the web site, the chart helped us see what we could not see in a computer. Our founder guided and instructed the Community to first build it on paper, list the sequence, place them in the order of priority and turn it into a large work flow format chart. This is helping us build a powerful and easy-to-use web site that could be easily and instantly updated throughout each day. To conceive such a project can only be done with prayer to the Holy Spirit. Fifteen to twenty different community members coordinating is next to impossible. The above chart gives us the ability to set goals and track what is done and what’s left to do. The extensive work flow chart coordinates us into becoming, as Jesus said, “One heart and one thought.” Even with computers and technology, it still comes down to pen and paper! This is why we will continue to expand our print shop and its capabilities as part of Our Lady’s multiple infrastructure, here at Caritas, in spreading Our Lady’s messages and plans.

Proofing Our Lady’s messages. The whole format of Our Lady’s messages was reviewed and is under overhaul. A lot of prayer and thought went into how to make Our Lady’s messages more easily available in finding them in a search, and helping you to spread them to others.

The picture shows our graphic design department. Eight people are working full time through the day on site work while others are running the mission, printing, shipping and mailing during the day, as well as sustaining the Community’s outside work. At 6:30 p.m. the numbers increase to 15 or 16 people until 10:00 p.m. or later. It is a labor of love for souls, dependent on God’s grace, to bear the fruit of conversion. They man computers on all three floors of The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages. The building was conceived years ago. Our founder built it prophetically knowing Medjugorje can only become bigger. A 35,000 square foot, three-story facility that is now a perfect fit to build and maintain mej.com’s future. Presently, we have 16-plus people logging 720-plus man hours a week on the development of mej.com. If we can meet the goal of being online, June 1, 2009, we will have well over 8,600 man hours involved. One might think this is a lot, and is it worth it? Would efforts and resources be better utilized elsewhere in Medjugorje work? If the site brings 8,600 people to conversion that’s one hour, along with God’s grace, for a conversion. Over time, if a million conversions occur, that’s one conversion per 31 seconds for the 8,600 hours effort, in union with God’s grace, for a conversion. Would that be worth it? We believe that mej.com will be part of the steps that will lead many millions to conversion and to continue to feed their conversion.

While mej.com was coming back online in February, a start-up development team of six people and support group of 6-8 more Community members were diving into research. How do people use the web, what programs, what type of searches, research on how to best meet the needs of people and hundreds of more things we invested time into. We felt by the response of those who gave, that we had a responsibility, through grace and prayer, to create something from the heart to connect countless hearts in the future, as well as for you who contributed to make mej.com available for future generations. To you who stepped forward, we say “Thank you!”
