15 Years Online

It all began as a little website without it’s own domain name.  It was 1995 was, 15 years ago that I began this website.  I had heard about the internet, got someone to help me get online and shortly thereafter was the beginning of Father Finelli’s Medugorje Page.  I’ll never forget how excited I was to see that 5 people had visited in a day!  I wanted to spread Our Lady’s messages and I saw the internet as a great possibility.  We have come a long way since 1995 and 5 visitors a day.  Today, this website is the longest Medjugorje website in existence.  In the beginning, there were only two of us and today, there are many.  I want to thank Our Lady for all she has done for me.  I give her credit for my vocation and the many, many graces I have received.  Without Our Lady, I would not be the priest I am today.  I also want to thank you, the faithful visitors to this site, some of you go back almost to the beginning.  I have met some of you along the way.  In fact, I have always been very touched when I have have met some of you on Apparition Hill or the Cross Mountain.  I also recall being at the Defending the Faith Conference at Franciscan University, when a group of young women went hysterical because I was Fr. Finelli from the Medugorje.com website.  It was humbling, because I felt like a rock star.  Although I enjoy those meetings and the excitement involved, that is not why I do this.  I began and continue this website because of my love for Our Lady and my desire to see all people live the message of Our Lord and His Holy Church with deep love and intensity.  There is nothing greater than serving Christ and His Church.  Thank you all again!  Spread the world and let us together run into the arms of Our Lord and Our Lady!  God bless, Fr. Finelli

    Esta mensagem é em português. Reverendo adorei a sua pagina. Vi a noticia que a Santa Sé tinha iniciado as investigações sobre a veracidade do que se passa em Medjugorje.Ficará provado que Medjugorje é obra de Deus e não do satan.

  6. Medugorje est le paradis sur terre et nous sentons la Sainte Vierge nous remplir de son amour. Grace a Elle, j’ai redecouvert Jesus et par Jesus l’amour infini de Dieu. J’espere qu’Elle continuera a venir nous donner sa benediction maternelle et repandre Ses graces infinies dans nos coeurs. Petit village de Bosnie qui draine tant et tant de monde, je prie pour que la lumiere continue de se repandre dans le monde grace a des personnes comme vous, Pere Finelli, qui travaillez sans relache.
    Avec tout mon coeur

    Thank you Father Finelli for your beautiful website. It is very inspiring and I check it often. In 2001 when I was planning a trip to Medjugorje with my sister and my daughter I was blessed to find your page as I didn’t know where to start looking for a place to stay while in Medjugorje or a group to go with and you directed me to Ivanka and Kreso. Ivanka put us in contact with Kathy, a lady in the midwest who had planned a pilgrimage around the same time. Everything came out great; now I am anxious to go back, God willing, next year (ten years later). Blessings to you Father.

    Hello Padre,

    It is such a blessing to stumble upon this website.

    Please do recommend an affordable place to stay in Medjugorje for up to three months. Two of us plan to go there for the youth festival and then stay on for some time. We are on a limited budget.

    Thanks!
