Denver Post Reports on Medjugorje Billboard

Our Lady of Medjugorje billboards reported in the Denver Post
 

 

The following newspaper article titled, “Moms fund billboard evangelism” appeared over the weekend in the Denver Post. Through the billboards of Our Lady a grace has caused many to come back into the church, nonbelievers come to believe and many have been introduced to Medjugorje, Our Lady and Her plans for the world in “Her time.” No other Medjugorje project introduces on a daily basis more people who know nothing about Medjugorje than Caritas’ Medjugorje billboard project, “This is Her Time.” The Denver Post article shows how easy it is to place a billboard:

Medjugorje Billboard Denver

Mary looks out at travelers on northbound South Sante Fe Drive at Iowa Avenue. (John Prieto, The Denver Post)

Call it a random act of evangelism.

Nine Catholic mothers in their late 20s to mid-40s, who meet monthly to pray the rosary, helped raise $1,000 to put up two billboards in the Denver area.

Blessed Mother looks down at traffic from two panels, 14 feet by 48 feet, on eastbound Interstate 76 just past the Pecos exit and on northbound South Santa Fe Drive at Iowa Ave.

The billboards, almost two weeks old, are slated to remain up at least through mid-November.

“This is My Time,” reads the legend next to an image of Mary, Mother of God. Underneath are listed a website, Mej.com, and a telephone number, directing people to a mission called Caritas of Birmingham in Alabama.

Caritas is dedicated to informing people of the supernatural appearances of Blessed Mother to six people at Medjugorje in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The Marian apparitions supposedly began in 1981, n what was then Yugoslavia, and have continued, for some of the visionaries, to this day. “Mary is trying to call us all back to Jesus,” said Silja Haagenson, a prayer group member.

The Catholic Church has not officially recognized the apparitions at Medjugorje, as it did at Fatima and Lourdes, but millions of faithful have made pilgrimages there over the past three decades.

The local billboards are part of a national campaign in which Catholics have funded 800 billboards in 30 states.

“It’s just a gentle reminder of this amazing event occurring now in the world,” said Lisa Fixler, a Denver mother of three who formerly worked in broadcast media sales.

“Our prayer group does have a special devotion to Our Lady of Medjugorje,” she said.

The prayer group, which includes stay-at-home moms, a nurse, women with doctorates and businesswomen, took eight days, with the help of another prayer group, to raise the cash for printing and shipping the artwork. The women were able to obtain “remnant” or free, unused billboard space.

“We really don’t know how it’s doing,” Fixler said of the billboard effort. “It’s pretty random. We just have to trust that some people are seeing it and investigating Medjugorje for themselves.”

She said a few months ago she never would have anticipated this course of action. Group members became aware of the billboard campaign and jumped on.

“God is driving the bus here,” Fixler said. “It just felt like a higher power was making it happen.”

END DENVERPOSTARTICLE

You as an individual can get placed a billboard up for only $100.00. The 14 foot x 48 foot billboard shown in the above picture on interstate 76 has a daily eye contact of 71,500 per day!!! In over a month’s time, Our Lady’s eyes will have glanced back at 2,145,000 daily eye contact. Our Lady said:

February 25, 1995

“…I invite you to become missionaries of my messages…”

Take action. Do what Our Lady requests. Spread Her love by introducing millions to Her. A whole support structure is organized just for this. This is my time. Those who see mej.com can easily remember the web name even traveling at 70mph, and after arriving to their office or home, see the billboard on the home page, click it and receive free downloadable conversion material. Others call in by the phone number and are mailed free booklets and other conversion material. This program is long term and will be extensively supported by Caritas and Medjugorje.com to bring countless people to Our Lady and conversion!! All you have to do is sponsor a board. You can do so by visiting this page to sponsor a billboard.

A Few Letters of Testimony:

Dear Caritas,

I am so excited to send this. Our prayer group raised enough money for a billboard. This is our first one. We hope to be able to continue to do more.

Ida Grove, IA

 

Dear Friends in Jesus and Mary,

It is in my constant prayers for Mary’s image on all the billboards to draw many to Jesus and Her! It was Mary’s eyes on the image on Wayne Wieble’s book, Medjugorje: The Message that captured me many years ago!

White Post, VA

  3. I am happy that our Pope is Francis. I had prayed to Jesus and Mary for a Good, Saintly, Dynamic & Strong Pope and my prayers were granted. Let us pray that Our Lady will strengthen the New Pope and grant him good health and success in steering the Church in the right direction in accordance with God’s Holy Will

    IT IS WONDERFUL TO HAVE OUR NEW POPE, A DOWN TO EARTH, HUMBLE PERSON, THERE IS TALK ABOUT THE NEXT POPE WHO WILL DESTROY THE CHURCH THAT JESUS BUILT UP. I HAVE A COPY OF THE WARNING, THAT SAYS HE HAS BEEN SENT TO DISMANTLE MY CHURCH, AND TEAR IT INTO LITTLE PIECES. DATED MARCH 8th. 2013.IT SAYS THE FALSE PROPHET HE WHO POSES AS THE LEADER OF MY CHURCH IS READY TO WEAR THE ROBES, WHICH WERE NOT MADE FOR HIM.WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN, I AM REALLY SAD. WHAT IS THE REAL TRUTH? GBU.DAMIEN.

  5. It is amazing how God talks to us. I was given the name of a Cardinal from Bolivia and it said Adopt a Cardinal! Wow! I thought how wonderful this message from the Vatican Information Service. For a moment I realized how close God is to each of us in each country even though so very very small far away and so insignificant – our country and specially myself. I praised the Holy Spirit for giving this grace to me and I walked to inform my daughter about it – South America! and there was she crying her eyes out.She had just got the information about Venezuela’s President’s death. He was such a Patriotic personality. Well then she and I thought the same. Pope will come from Latin America. God works in an amazing way. He shows His Love by being with us always when we are down and broken. Our God is Mighty and Jesus and Mary are there in the Vatican with our Pope from wherever in the World. We all belong to the Father Son and Holy Spirit as was in the beginning of the world.

  7. People commenting on Facebook are destroying the name of Catholics by saying we worship Mary. We know that is not true, but how does one stop their lies. They claim they are Christians, but how can a Christian deny that Mary is the Mother of God?

    Awesome article, God Bless our Pope Francis 1 and we pray to the Holy Spirit to guide and enlighten him as the Successor of St.Peter.

  12. Its morning here as i write this mail. I prayed in our Adoration chapel before the Holy Eucharist, and the picture of the Immaculate Heart of Jesus and Mother Mary and every time i looked up at the pictures, they would glow more colorful and as i walked up outside, around 1715hrs, the sun was going down in a very shiny rays.The announcement was made of the new Pope at night Kenyan time and immediately CNN beamed the news of the new pope, the was a light shower/rain over our place. Praise be to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  13. Pope Francis I will be inaugurated on March 19, the Feast of St. Joseph, at 9:30 a.m. in St. Peter’s Square. Our Lady is smiling!Habemus Papam

  14. I am with you in my prayers, I beg the Abba Father, His Son Jesus, the Holy Spirit, with Mama Mary, to touch the mind and hart of each of the 115 Cardinal…that will have strong Unity to pick the humble, holy Pope. Pontiff Francis 1, was the first Jesuit that become the pope in our Catholic history.We have to pray for our new pope, he also ask the prayers he will be needed. ALLELUIA! Our Lady pick her new pope.

  15. Welcome Pope Francis the 1st! God bless you and your servitude! We place you under our Mother’s sweet mantle as you serve all of us. We will be praying for you!

  16. Michael J. Hutchinson

    I got the news at about 1:00 pm, Mountain Daylight Time, on 13th day of March 2013, I’m glad to hear the news of new pope, named after Saint Francis of Assisi, which the city of Longmont, Colorado do have Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church!

  17. Me and my husband just talking about St.Francis, suddenly the name of the pope appeared to be Pope Francis, how great thou art for his simplicity, thank you lord.

  18. Another perfect and beautiful lesson given to us by our Mother. We look for a powerful leader to guide billions of us and the Holy Spirit chooses the humble servant. One who follows the motto of Jesus instructions to Saint Francis to rebuild His church. I think it is safe to say that the appropriate pictures of the Cardinals was the first one.

  19. So happy to welcome our new Pope! God bless him and keep our beloved Benedict in His embrace!I pray that the song that I am supposed to finish tonight will be dedicated to this momentous day and to Our Lady’s plans

  20. This has been most inspiring, to have Our Blessed Mother pray with us to choose the new Pope. God bless him in his new office.

  21. Thank you so much for sharing this and also for all yourefforts for us. I am looking forward to daily updates. May God bless you all.

  22. Nice to hear from Alabama. Tears in my eyes why I do not know. I am very happy to hear. May God choose the one whom He really desire. God bless you all. Pray for me. Thank you.

  23. Maxine Rasmussen

    This is a beautiful article. May God Bless all of You.I fell safe in the hands of Our Mother Mary that God’s will be done. My Prayers Will go out to all of the cardinals.

  24. Its so reassuring to know that Our Lady of Medjugorge is in control and has prayed over the pictures of the Cardinals. We the Church need her like the Apostles did at the time of the Descent of the Holy Spirit.

  25. Thank you so much for sharing this. I pray that cardinals look to Mary & Holy Spirit for guidance in this important choice. Considering the state of the world, it is extremely important that we have a pope that has spiritual & physical vitality who can uphold the truth of God, connect with young as well as old, bring unity to the our church. Thank you again!

  26. Holy Spirit reign down in our hearts and that of those who guide our Church. We know that Jesus promised He would be with us until the end of time. Come Lord Jesus! Captivate our hearts and souls.

  27. I want to send my heartfelt congratulations to all who had the determination and resolve to pass on Our Lady’s message through billboard form. People will notice and respopnd positively and prayerfully I am sure. God bless you all

  29. I saw it on I-76 last week – then read the Denver Post article. Have sent email link to family … It’s a very pretty billboard. Love one another and peace to all.

  30. I pass this billboard everyday from work and love it. It is how I found this site. Thank you to those who put it up! It is a great reminder during my busy commutes of hurry up and get there, to relax and remember why we are really here and what an inspiring message to “say yes Lord” as Mary did !

  31. How awesome is this? driving down a freeway and there she is Mother of God calling everyone to her heart to God! To come to know Medjujorje threw the bill boards. Hope this opens a lot of eyes and hearts! Wow its a start!

  32. Thanks be to JESUS, for allowing our Holy Mother Mary to return to us in Medjujorje (medg-a-gor-ee). She is a mother on a mission to save her children ! Who else would God send BUT His Mother, “The Queen of Heaven and Earth “! God is allowing Her this time, HER TIME , a time of Great Grace for the world. She will defeat satan in the end and he knows it. He’s terrified and furious, because he knows he only has a short time left. Listen with your heart, She will lead you ! GOD BLESS !

  33. Hello, This is really a very good advertisement. This is Mama Mary’s time so she should be known worldwide. If somebody will check the Medjugorge site, they will get hooked to the site and will be reading non stop and their days will never be complete without visiting the site and have a read thru of Mama Mary’s genuine messages. I would like to know how to advertise this in our own city. Please advise. Thanks, Cathy
