Welcome to the MejMart, the most complete source for your Medjugorje material. Medjugorje.com is the official Medjugorje website, operated by Caritas of Birmingham in Alabama. Caritas of Birmingham’s sole focus is the propagation of the Medjugorje messages and to show how to transmit them into life. It is the largest Medjugorje center in the world operating out of a 65,000 square foot motherhouse known as the Tabernacle of Our Lady's Messages. The Tabernacle of Our Lady's Messages, features writing offices, copy editing departments, prepress and design, printshop and binding department, shipping and fulfillment center, three prayer chapels and gathering areas for large events. Caritas also operates a Mission House in the village of Medjugorje.

Caritas had already been in operation since 1986, when, five years later, a lay community was established. The lay community resulted through an apparition which took place in the founder of Caritas' home, in which the Virgin Mary made known to Marija, one of the six Medjugorje visionaries, that She wished to establish a community. The Caritas Community in Alabama is located between two mountains in a valley at the end of the Appalachians, and operates the mission of Caritas of Birmingham. Marija Lunetti, who still sees Our Lady daily, has visited the Holy Site in Alabama many times, having had over 187 apparitions of the Queen of Peace.
