We Now Have Until December 23, 2022

See chart below for updated amount – Dec. 20, 2022

Dear Friends of Our Lady,


We are coming down to the last few days before we must make the final payment for the Times Square billboard in New York City. Remember that this billboard will show Our Lady to a million people, who will be in Times Square, New York, on New Year’s Eve. We had until December 10 to raise $70,000. Since we still have not reached the complete goal, the billboard company has given us an extension. We now have until Friday, December 23, 2022.


We wish to send out a great Thank You for all of those who have responded to this plea, but we are still in need of one more push to reach the end goal.  As a Friend of Medjugorje has already announced, we have changed the message on the billboard. It will read the following:


Times Square Billboard - Mankind has decided to die


Times Square Billboard - Do Not Lose Hope


Times Square Billboard - The human heart can change


In the early 1990’s, a Canadian businessman walked out to his mailbox to get the mail.  His life revolved around making a lot of money and enjoying the life of the rich. He was asked by his young son one day, “Who is God?”  The man took a dollar bill out of his pocket, showed it to his son and said, “This is god.”  Looking through the mail, his eyes wandered to a large bold headline on a brochure that read, “I Am Calling You to Conversion for the Last Time.” The words were from a message given by Our Lady of Medjugorje, and they came with a grace that rocked his heart.  It was a warning. Do not reject this call. He told his wife to make arrangements for both of them to go to Medjugorje immediately.  Upon setting foot in Medjugorje, he turned to his wife and said, “We are leaving everything and moving here.” That was 30 years ago.  They never looked back.  They gave their lives to Our Lady and have spent the past three decades in serving Her through Medjugorje. They are truly apostles of Our Lady, having impacted thousands upon thousands of pilgrims.   All that came through one “billboard,” a letter in the mailbox.


People know the condition of the world.  Even those who are not connected to God can sense in their souls that the world is slipping further and further into darkness. The words Our Lady chose to place in Her October 25, 2022, message, “Mankind has chosen to die,” are shocking but with grace attached, they move the heart because it is Truth and people appreciate the Truth even if it is difficult to hear.  We know the face of Our Lady looking down upon New York City brings Her presence and grace to everyone under that gaze.  Not everyone is noticeably impacted by Our Lady’s billboard. That is okay. But there will be those who will see Her face and read Her words that will have the same experience as the Canadian businessman.  They will be rocked to conversion.  They will respond.  They will become apostles of Our Lady and they will join in the work to lead souls to Our Lady and Her Son.


One million people will be gathered in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.  Our Lady is not always looking for the multitudes, but for a few who will become super apostles, who will give their lives over to Her and spend their lives bringing souls to Her.  It takes only one moment of grace for a conversion to be given.  Our Lady’s billboard in Times Square is the opportunity for grace and conversion for whomever Our Lady is calling, perhaps calling for the last time: “I Am Calling You to Conversion for the Last Time.”


We will be required by next Friday, December 23, to pay the remaining amount for the billboard that will show all the way to New Year’s Day.  We are in need of raising $16,800.  Please send in a gift to help us make this goal and continue to pray that Our Lady will reach hearts through Her words and Her gaze from the billboard.

    I’m so glad the grace period has been extended! I sent a small donation online, but then sent another check by mail today. I feel certain the goal will be reached! Praise God! Love to all of you at Caritas and a very Blessed Christmas!
