Medjugorje timeline has taken years and thousands of direct and indirect man hours to complete. From programming and developing the timeline structure, to mining and sourcing the information, sorting, organizing, and presenting the information briefly enough while still capturing essential details, to the many man hours required to “proof” the entries for grammar, content, and readability, this project has truly been a labor of love for Our Lady, performed with good will in the hope that the Medjugorje timeline will impact souls for their conversion and salvation.
In speaking to the community on the morning of September 4, 2017, a Friend of Medjugorje said:
“We will remember the summer of 2017 as the summer we lost. The entire community, with the exception of keeping up with the bare minimum in our agrarian needs, answering phones, and sending out packages, have spent the entire summer in what we named the ‘War Room,’ (the 2nd auditorium) working on the Medjugorje.com expansion. We literally watched a whole season pass by from our windows from 7:00 or 8:00 am in the morning until 11:00 p.m., 12:00 a.m., or 1:00 a.m., Monday through Saturday, sprinkling in several all-nighters and 5:00 a.m. starts. Sundays were our days of rest. Our Lady told us on February 25, 1988, ‘Sacrifice your lives for the salvation of the world.’ We have sacrificed the summer of 2017, and it will impact the world.”
We have made a very good faith effort to ensure that all the information is correct, but if you believe you have a legitimate correction, you can submit the information using the regular Medjugorje.com feedback form. We also know there are many things not on this timeline that are worthy of inclusion – in particular, the apparitions of the visionaries while traveling to different places in the world. Quite simply, we ran out of time. Soon, we will provide an avenue for submitting events and information you believe should be included. We will only publicly publish information that comes from credible sources and can be verified. The Medjugorje Timeline is a work in progress that will be continuing, and it is a work that a Friend of Medjugorje and the community are committed to.
We want this information to be spread, but any material that is original to a Friend of Medjugorje or Caritas of Birmingham, including, but not limited to design, layout, and content, etc., should be referenced back. We take all steps necessary to preserve the integrity of this information, and anyone using the original material without properly referencing back will be contacted to correct such usage. We have made sincere efforts to ensure any other information on the Medjugorje Timeline has come from credible sources.
How to Use and Navigate the Medjugorje Timeline
The Medjugorje TimelineTM contains many entries, and is best viewed with a computer. A mobile version will soon be available. Right now, there are three simple points to follow to learn how to use and navigate through the Medjugorje Timeline. We will soon be adding additional navigation features that make it much easier to scroll through the Timeline.
- Use the thin arrow above the timeline to navigate two months at a time or by clicking on a red dot to go to a particular date.
- Use the arrows on the right and left side of the timeline modules to move one event at a time through the timeline.
- On the face of each slide in the timeline, you will see a picture, a title, and a short description of the event. If you want to read more about one of the specific timeline events, simply click the red “Read More” button to expand the slide. Once the slide is expanded, you can read the detailed description of the event. Depending on the length of the description, you may be able to scroll down further within the expanded slide to read the full description. You can also click on a picture within an expanded slide to enlarge the image. To close the expanded slide, click on the “x” in the upper right-hand part of the box, or click on another timeline entry.
- The buttons below provide an easy and quick access to each year on the Timeline.
