The 10th Prayer for Peace in Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral
Since 2008, and under the patronage of Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, the “Message for you” – Prayer for Peace in Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral has taken place once each year. This year, too, our Cardinal will join together with thousands of people in the cathedral to pray for peace and to celebrate the Holy Mass.
At the beginning of August 2017, Cardinal Schönborn, who himself spent New Year’s Eve (2009/2010) in Medjugorje, wrote a message to the thousands of young people who had gathered from all over the world at the Marian pilgrimage site in Herzegovina. There they had come together for a youth prayer meeting and the address the Cardinal wrote for them was translated into many languages:
Dear young friends,
Once more you have come to Medjugorje in such great numbers. No one commanded you to travel here in the heat of summer. You do it because it is a matter close to your heart. Otherwise, you would have not have taken this effort upon yourself! What moves you to travel to Medjugorje? It is not something fashionable, a trend, a fleeting excitement. It is a special closeness, it is the closeness of the Gospa, which draws you here. …
With great joy, we look forward to having Ernest Cardinal Simoni at this year’s prayer for peace on October 24th. Cardinal Simoni came to give Pope Francis’s blessing to the thousands of young people who gathered in Medjugorje from sixty-nine countries at the beginning of August. His Eminence was ordained to the priesthood in 1956 in Albania, was imprisoned by the atheistic persecution of the Church in 1963, and in the following eighteen years was twice condemned to death. After he was released in 1981, he worked as a canal worker and exercised his priestly ministry in secret. When the communist regime collapsed in 1990, he was allowed for the first time officially to take up his priestly ministry.
During the apostolic pilgrimage of Pope Francis to Albania in 2014, then Fr. Simoni had the chance to meet the Pope. After the Pope heard his testimony, he embraced him with the words: you are my saint! On November 19th, 2016, Pope Francis appointed him to the College of Cardinals.
The visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti will participate in the prayer for peace this year as a special guest from Medjugorje. Marija attests to seeing the Mother of God daily since June 25th, 1981. Since March, 1984, Marija regularly brings messages for the parish of Medjugorje and the whole world, every Thursday at the beginning and since January of 1987 on every 25th of the month. The content of the messages is an invitation and at the same time an introduction to the spiritual life.
Fr. Marinko Sakota, O.F.M., studied theology in Sarajevo, Zagreb, and Fulda, and since 2010 fulfills the role of spiritual director in Medjugorje. Beginning in 2013, he was made pastor of the pilgrimage site and has up to this point implemented countless measures to deepen the spiritual life there.
At the prayer for peace, Fr. Marinko will give us an insight into his responsibilities and his encounter with Archbishop Henryk Hoser of Warsaw-Prague, whom Pope Francis commissioned as delegate for pastoral care at the pilgrimage site.
The Swiss artist Hubert Theler has visited Medjugorje on a regular basis since 2003. In numerous photographs, he has captured the stones on Cross Mountain and Apparition Mountain, and his conviction grows ever deeper that here a transformation in the hears of men is taking place, in the sense that Fr. Jozo Zouko once expressed: the Mother of God takes our heart of stone and lays it on the Podbrdo, and gives us a new hart. Thus, a new man comes down from the mountain.
The fascination with the stones of the two mountains is captured in his book, Living Stones of Medjugorje, which was presented in January of this year in the parish of Medjugorje.
Through the events in Medjugorje, great humanitarian works have been inspired in the past several years. Mary’s Meals, an initiative addressing hunger and nutrition and placed under the protection of the Mother of God, today feeds over 1.2 million children on every school day in fourteen of the poorest countries of the world. Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, who first visited Medjugorje as a fourteen-year old and then founded Mary’s Meals as a young adult, will report on the efforts of this initiative in several countries of east Africa, which are particularly afflicted with drought and civil war.
This year the Cenacolo Community celebrates the twenty-year anniversary of its establishment in Austria. At the prayer for peace, the boys of the community will, as in past years, put forward a joyful sign of their gratitude concerning life gifted to them anew.

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
Dear Children of Our Lady of Medjugorje, Family of Mary TV:
Featured speakers include the Pastor of St. James Church in Medjugorje, two cardinals and Medjugorje visionary Marija Pavlovic-Lunetti…. 4:00-9:00pm Vienna Time (10:00am to 3:00pm EDT in the US). Here is the schedule:
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Cathy and I just returned from the most wonderful pilgrimage with Tom and Mary Matasso and many of Mary TV’s shipmates! Our whole time together was overflowing with grace! Thank you for your prayers – and for your donations. I’ve got to tell you what your prayers and donations have accomplished for Our Lady!
As soon as we arrived in Medjugorje Tom and I headed to Mary TV’s studio…. He was excited to show me the new technical equipment your donations made possible, right after Our Lady had told us in her message, “Be ready! This is a turning point!”
Tom told me: “Four years ago a digital TV station control room cost $1,500,000 ($US). Today,” gesturing with a sweep of his hand towards all he equipment before us, “a full blown digital TV station control room costs $35,000!”
I had asked you for $35,000 and you came through! Your donations gave this gift to Our Lady! I wish you could have seen all the beautiful, grateful faces of people expressing gratitude for Mary TV. Due to your generous donations Medjugorje is coming into homes throughout the world.
I could tell you many stories. I’ll conclude with just one: With Mary TV’s very competent technical crew in Medjugorje running things smoothly, Tom had the leisure to just sit back and do some thinking “outside the box”…. (Remember, this is the guy who built the first all digital TV station in the US – TXCN of Dallas!)! With the prayer of Medjugorje going on around him (our studios are right next to the Church) he got the idea to put together from existing equipment sitting on a shelf not being used for anything, a new POV camera that would go up closer to Our Lady’s statue on Apparition Hill. Discovering that Sony doesn’t make a POV box big enough (no one does) Tom and Kiki went to a local plumbing store, purchased 10” drain pipe and made their own! The lens still needs fine tuning but there it is! Take a look at the top of Mary TV’s web page:
IT’S TIME TO FINISH OUR DOWNSTAIRS TV STATION! The station has been “on hold” for 14 years (we’ve been waiting for the money). It’s time! The facility is huge….20 foot ceilings! The main film studio can hold 150 people!
FIRST: we need a $30,000 to fix a serious water leak (our studio is so deep into the ground, during the rainy season water comes into the floor).
SECOND: $25,000 to finish the electrical, lights, spray the walls and put floors in the engineering room, control room, and the two studios.
THIRD: $15,000 for new cameras. We need 3 TV cameras at $5,000 each. (As noted in the third paragraph above, technology is getting better and cheaper – changing, I’m told, every three months! A television camera that used to cost $100,000 now costs $5,000 (and it’s a much better camera now)!
FOURTH: $5,000 to put in two bathrooms….
$75,000 DOES IT ALL (the price of Mary TV’s first camera)!
OUR LADY NEEDS YOU NOW! GO OUT AND FIND A DONOR!!!!!!(Donations are tax exempt)
How you can help:
“The source of grace is here, but you, dear children, are the vehicles transmitting the gifts. Therefore, dear children, I am calling you to work responsibly. Everyone will be responsible according to his own measure. Dear children, I am calling you to give the gift to others with love and not to keep it for yourselves,”(May 8, 1986 message from our Mother).
“BE READY! THIS IS A TURNING POINT!” (6/2/17).
Thank you and God bless you!

Our Lady Gives A Sign...
MARY TV was LIVE STREAMING Ivan’s May 24, 2013 apparition on Mt. Podbrdo (Apparition Hill) in Medjugorje. My wife, Cathy, was praying in front of her computer in the US, connected through the Internet, welcoming Our Lady along with everyone gathered on the mountain. She couldn’t see anything on her computer screen because it was late at night and Ivan had said, “No lights.” She found herself asking Our Lady for a sign – a little light – as a sign that MARY TV was on the right track and really serving her. Just after the apparition, when she went to give an account on Mary TV’s Facebook page, the page opened with this picture that she had never seen before, captioned: “MARY APPEARS OVER BUILDING IN MEDJUGORJE, PHOTO TAKEN BY PILGRIM.” Our Lady is standing directly over MARY TV’s studios, her feet right where we have two POV cameras STREAMING 24/7 LIVE TO THE WORLD Apparition Hill & Cross Mountain!
ASK JESUS IF HE’D LIKE YOU TO START SENDING A MONTHLY DONATION TO MARY TV.
TO CONTINUE SAILING WITH OUR LADY UPON THE DIGITAL SEA THIS BOAT NEEDS FINANCIAL HELP.
Our Lady spoke to Vicka during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about the importance of Mary TV’s mission. At that time she told Vicka that she herself (Our Lady) would begin Mary TV! She did! But she didn’t do it alone. The generosity of her children made Mary TV a reality for her. Your generosity is needed now for it to continue!
Totus Tuus (Totally Yours)
Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother, Live in me, Act in me, Speak in me and through me, Think your thoughts in my mind, Love through my heart, Give me your dispositions and feelings, Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus, Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior, Possess my soul, Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself, Incline me to constant adoration, Pray in me and through me, Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.
