HOly Father and Teres

Two saints! And they both love Medjugorje!

September 4, 2016
Canonization Day of Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Dear Family of MaryTV,
With joy we invoke the intercession of Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta today. Apostles of the Gospa of Medjugorje can count on miracles! She’s our powerful intercessor….
Today Mary TV’s new channel gets underway by airing a half hour special with Mother Teresa speaking to over 5000 priests in the papal audience hall at the Vatican. This priests’ retreat was filmed 26 years ago by MaryTV’s director of Engineering, Tom Matasso. It is playing in the channel today (MaryTV.tv). For on demand viewing it will eventually be found in the video window at the top of the web page. (I may have already mentioned that Tom was called to the Vatican several months after Karol Wojtyła’s election to the papacy on October 16, 1978. His work filming there laid the foundations for what would begin, five years later, as Vatican TV) ….
Mary TV’s new web page that we all are experiencing today is the dedicated work of Matt Matasso, Tom’s son (like father like son)!!!!! Matt created our video web page from scratch and is always looking for the most inexpensive ways to improve it…. I remember when we began live streaming over phones, you could count on the fingers of one hand the number of those in the world able to do so – who weren’t multi-million dollar corporations. (I’m told that even today, with a budget of millions, IBM hasn’t succeeded in its efforts to construct an internet TV channel like the one Tom has constructed for MaryTV.)
Needless to say, we are very grateful. Let’s ask Mother Teresa of Calcutta, out of her great love for the Gospa, to bless Tom and Matt…to be with them and their families these days.
Cathy and I will be leaving our house (and so vacating the studio) every Notre Dame home football game this season, starting next weekend. We’re grateful for the opportunity to rent out our house to families coming for the game – something we need to do in order to help pay bills…. Matt started preparing an old computer that we brought back with us from Medjugorje last June to use for our Rosaries on the digital sea while we’re out of the house – Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays of home football weekends. But that computer turns out to be too old. It’s not capable of holding all the needed software. To purchase a new traveling computer, with the needed software, costs $2,000… an expense not budgeted for…. If anyone would like to help with a donation towards meeting this expense, we’d be grateful! Nothing’s going to stop us from praying the rosary with Our Lady and her family everyday – sailing on the digital sea!!!!  
Thank you and God bless you!

Thank you, dear Gospa, for your presence in Medjugorje!!

“My children, listen to me, I speak for your salvation!” March 18, 2016, to Mirjana

“Dear Children! Again today in a special way I want to invite you to live my messages. Dear children, do not just speak about my messages but live my messages. Be my living sign, a sign of my presence here and irradiate others with your presence here. Pray dear children through this time more. Pray together with me for my intentions. Follow me, dear children, live my messages. Fear not, I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son. Thank you, dear children, also today, for having responded to my call.” August 26, 2016, to Ivan on Mt. Podbrdo

August 29, 2016

Dear Family of Mary TV,

We’re grateful for your donations. Our Lady must be grateful too. MaryTV’s LIVE connection with Medjugorje, that your generosity is making possible, allows her children around the world to be there with her – to be radiated by her presence there.
On July 2, 2016 she couldn’t have made any clearer the importance of her presence:

“Dear children, my real, living presence among you should make you happy because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety!”

And she couldn’t have made any clearer the importance of our being present there with her!

“My Son promised me that evil will never win because you, the souls of the just, are here!” (Nov 2, 2014).

Though right now the donation thermometer isn’t at the top of MaryTV’s web page, www.marytv.tv , we still hope to reach one thousand monthly donors… As of today we have 346 monthly donors (and a total of 765 donors since the beginning of 2016). Your response is incredible!

“Pray for peace. Pray with the heart, little children, and do not lose hope because God loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by one, through my coming here,” (March 25, 2003). Please continue supporting MaryTV financially – and please spread our appeal. We need to increase our donor base. *

I used to turn to Mother Teresa a lot back in the early 90’s. (She once picked up the phone when I happened to call Calcutta) …. In the last letter that I received from her she wrote: “Thank you for your kind letter of 4-4-92. I am afraid I will not be able to come for the National Conference, due to my health – though I will be with you with my prayers. We are all praying one hail Mary before Holy Mass to Our Lady of Medjugorje!” (She had written to me earlier that she would gladly come and speak at the National Conference on Medjugorje at the University of Notre Dame – if her health permitted.)

We should expect powerful intercession through the prayers of Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta when she is canonized this Sunday (September 4, 2016).

Cathy shared a beautiful prayer to Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta in her reflection for today. Please pray it with me for the intention I’ve inserted:

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, you allowed the thirsting love of Jesus on the Cross to become a living flame within you, and so became the light of His love to all. Obtain from the Heart of Jesus (here make the following request: “that Mary TV receives all the money it needs to move forward for Our Lady according to her plans – during these great days of her mission for the salvation of the world.”)

Teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others. Amen.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Cause of Our Joy, pray for me.
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, pray for me.

Thank you and God bless you!

 Thank you, dear Gospa, for your presence in Medjugorje!!

August 16, 2016

Dear Apostles of Mary,
MaryTV’s shipmates sailing with Our Lady upon the digital sea,
“God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen…A great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars…” (Rev 11:19 – 12:1).
The Book of Revelations is being fulfilled today! Our Lady came again today in Medjugorje wearing a crown of twelve stars.
“Woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”
 
Our Lady is crushing his head.

 “This time is my time,” she’s told us in her messages!

Satan has no time left.
Thank you for joining Mary TV’s team, helping us spread her messages.They are like life preservers from heaven for us.
“My children, listen to me. I speak for your salvation!”
And thank you for helping us spread the news of her presence with us:
“Dear children! My real, living presence among you should make you happy because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety!” (July 2, 2016).

(From Cindy)
Hi Dennis!!
Peace and Blessings! Thank You and Cathy for all you do for Our Lady! Just a special note to thank you for Mary TV and your connection to the joy that is happening in Medjugorge!  I have been sick of late and went to the site to connect with others in prayer.
As I watched Tea with Rosie, and the leaders of three faiths coming together to pray for peace tears fell down my cheeks. My mom was Greek Orthodox, and the diferences in religions affected my family in so many ways.  My dad suffered so much hurt the way his church treated his bride. He would say to me, “I’m not mad at God, its that church.” My mom went to Mass with us and became a friend of Fr. Farrell, OFM C.A.P. She became involved in the Charismatic Renewal and we attended a FIRE conference and were blessed with my dad’s return to church a week later on Easter Sunday, the year before my mom died.
It was with Great Joy I saw all the faiths come together to pray for peace!  What Joy there must be in heaven!!
Watching I half felt I was there because Medjugorje’s Peace and Joy filled my soul and being all the way here in Michigan! God willing someday I will get there in physical presence!!
Thank you, thank you both for your faithfulness! Thank you for telling the messages as you talk. What freedom. The prayer at the end, the novena prayer, lifted me so!  I feel like this ministry is leaving the devil no place to be but hell because everyone has access to the light through Mary Tv.
Holy Hugs to you both!!
Cindy
 

Thanks again to President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic!

(from Linda)
Thank you so much for this amazing update on what is going on in Medjugorje.  What a wonderful blessing to have the different faiths come together in Mary’s special place to discuss & pray for peace….wow !!

 I really enjoyed the interview with the Croatian President.  Our country’s leaders should take a “page out of her play book” and learn to turn to God for help…Good for her !
 Thanx again Denis….
 Linda from New Jersey
More encouragement:
Good Morning from California –
Thank you Denis for your messages and updates.  I loved reading about the “rosary potter” – she gave me inspiration today –  Every donation is so important and valuable.  I was a 1 time a year donation person but I chose today to be a monthly giver.  It’s so simple with the PayPal system and I can afford a bit more when it is a small amount each month charged on my visa.  Thank you to everyone who works to spread the good news and graces of Medjugorje. Today I feel so happy to be able to help you through this donation & in thanksgiving to our Holy Mother & Father for their intercessions in our world and daily lives.
Many blessings to all,
Julie –

Advertising in your local news paper:

Mary TV Ad
(from Diana)
The marytv.tv ad will appear in August. Paper then in July as people are on vacation. Will begin in August and as I can place it. Using your logo ad you sent me (and is on the web page).
The color photo Theresa Toronto sent would require 1/2 page and hundreds of dollars to run once.
Sorry. Please pray that the ad results in increased viewers in this area and increase in donations for marytv.
Thanks for reading Matthew 6:24-34 on Thursdays as Our Lady requested many years ago. Had it printed ALL CAPS above my name on checks and you can’t imagine the number of times people have asked about it. What year did She ask us to read that on Thursdays? I think I put it on my checks in 1984. Been there a long time.

Update on Fr. Leon’s Domincan habit:
August 12, 2016
Dearest Denis and Cathy!
I finally found the perfect material for Father Leon. The last material I brought for him last time was lovely he sad but still too hot. I’ve emailed him about what else I should buy and I do know what he wants.
What I have found is a perfect lightweight moister wicking polyester with a upf of 30 in the perfect color (polyester in ivory is hard to find by that one factor alone). It is a miracle I found it but the only problem is it will cost $65. I don’t have enough to pay for it. Do you think you could find a donor for it? OR I can pay someone back in a month or so for it.
We will also need to find someone who will take it to Medjugorje. I can mail it to anyone and I have the money to mail it.
Please let me know what you think!
Thank you very much for the rosary today. The quotes from St. Jane, along with your hearts praying, helped me trust more in my prayer to let the Holy Spirit do all the work 🙂 And I’m not just saying pretty words, it really did!  hehehe
God Bless you! Love,
Traci
(Note from Denis: please let us know if you hear of anyone going to Medjugorje who might be willing to bring the material with them…. Thanks.  Also, we have received several donations for Fr. Leon’s robes, so we don’t need more donations for that.  We will be having two winter robes made and sent to him as well! Thanks to all!
And If you haven’t yet heard Traci’s testimony, it is “Fruit of Medjugorje” episode # 215 found at <http://marytv.tv/featured-programing/fruit-of-medjugorje>)!
More Feedback about the Youth Festival: 
Oh my goodness! I just finished watching the live stream of the Cenacola play and it was awesome. Thank you for making it possible. It was as if I was sitting in Medjugorje watching the beautiful talent of those souls! The scenery, the music, the dancing, the costumes, the acting and the heart of it all was just as good if not better than any Hollywood presentation! Thank you ALL who had anything to do with the production!!
May the Lord bless, protect and guide you all the days of your lives!

PS. Don’t miss Fr. Leon’s homily yesturday in Medjugorje:
http://marytv.tv/featured-programing/english-mass-in-medjugorje-homily) And in regard to the importance of the Solemnity of the Assumption, see Cathy’s April 12, 2016 and August 14, 2016 reflections, found at  http://marytv.tv/daily-reflections. Did you know in his book, The World’s First Love, published in 1952, Archbishop Fulton Sheen said that within three decades of the proclamation of the dogma of the Assumption, (1950) God would send the remedy for the devastation caused by atheistic humanism that had destroyed the faith in so many parts of the world…. The remedy that is being sent by heaven is Our Lady’s call from Medjugorje!
PPS. Michael is leading another Medjugorje pilgrimage, October 3 through October 14th. Airline tickets are cheap right now (and the weather in October is the most beautiful time of year).   Call Michael before his pilgrimage fills up. Michael Nolan, Tel 574 335 – 9952, email: <mnolan6@me.com>

 President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović on Tea with Rosie!

August 14, 2016

St. Maximilian Kolbe

Breaking News!

Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović was just in Medjugorje. During her stay, she granted Mary TV a personal interview! Rosie and President Grabar-Kitarović chatted about her pilgrimages to Medjugorje in the past, and what it means to her as a leader of a country to stay close to her faith. You can view the interview in the current episode of “Tea with Rosie” at <http://marytv.tv/featured-programing/tea-with-rosie>.

Mary TV’s interview was the only television interview granted by the President of Croatia. President Grabar-Kitarović, who has been coming to Medjugorje since the 80’s, has no doubt that Our Lady is appearing there!

Lebanese religious leaders, Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic – in Medjugorje:
Also in this “Tea with Rosie” is the astonishing news that Lebanese Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic leaders are meeting in Medjugorje for an inter-religious retreat, praying for peace together…. All three religious groups reverence Mary. And in prayer together in Medjugorje they are turning to the Queen of Peace!  We join our prayers with theirs for peace!
Mary TV’s Incredible coverage of the Youth Festival:
Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support you are giving Mary TV’s team in Medjugorje. They did an outstanding job Live-Streaming the youth festival…. It can still be viewed in its entirety at www.marytv.tv.  (You might like to view some of Mary TV’s spectacular aerial shots….found in the last archived file for the Youth Festival on August 2nd, titled “Meditation with candles and Prayer before the Cross”, at: 0:59:16 to 0:59:47, and, 1:01:20 to 1:03:22 and 1:24:16 to 1:25:07).

Having just performed at World Youth Day with the Pope in Poland, the cast and crew of the Cenacolo play made it back to Medjugorje just three hours before they were to perform at the Youth Festival… And what a performance!!!! Incredible! You can view the play in the Youth Festival Archive!!

At the end of the youth festival Sue from New York wrote:
I don’t really have the words to express my gratitude to our Lord and our Lady for the graces I have been receiving through the Youth Festival live and archived.  I can hardly contain myself and have shed many tears.  I know the young men work so hard and they do such an amazing job that it’s almost unbelievable.  I am always impressed but I admit l take things for granted.   Just like any routine I guess.  I pray very much for them and for the South Bend, Jersey, TX, CO and anybody else I am not aware of.  These are moments like a wedding or baptism where LOVE flows, memories are made and treasured within the heart because Heaven came through everything !!  Aug 1st is the feast of Peter being unchained.  August 2nd is the Portiuncola indulgence of St Francis so the kids get plenary indulgence [this year it wasn’t as emphasized] Aug 4th St Jean Vianney, Aug our Lady ‘s birthday and the Transfiguration.  Wow !!!  That’s really a Transfiguration for me. The prayer, mass, adoration, testimonies and the Cenacolo play !!!  I have to go to Home Depot and buy a rope to keep me from levitating.  You might see me over South Bend.  Mary tv has been a life line in many many ways.  Please share this with the team with deepest gratitude and prayers.  Love,  Sue
Ready to swab the deck….

Thank you Sue, you captured the great gift we were given by the Youth Festival, and our crew in Medjugorje!

Here are some behind the scenes shots of Mary TV’s crew, who worked day and night throughout the festival.  Great job Kristian, Mario, Vlado, Ivo, Mateo and Tony!!

Hip Hip Hurrah!  For the Mary TV Team!!!

Many of you have been finding ways to promote Mary TV! Here are a few of the beautiful initiatives that are spreading the word:

 Kara the rosary/potter:
Good morning Denis and Cathy!
Just wanted to give you an update on my rosary business and it’s contribution to Mary TV! Since opening in March I have sold 11 rosaries! As mentioned before I am donating 10% of all sales to Mary TV. So far, I was able to send you $20 when I first sold a couple of rosaries. Recently, I used another $28 (donation) from my sales to purchase 500 Mary TV business cards and they are beautiful! I am able to carry then in my purse to hand out, as well as include them in my packaging when my rosaries are mailed out!
Another update is that our local Catholic bookstore, Angel Crossing, here in Delaware, has agreed to sell my rosaries! After speaking with Michelle, she let me know a little about your trip to Medjugorje and the camera she was able to take back with her! Funny how we are all connected in some small way. Michelle is not taking any additional funds from the sales of my rosaries after she learned of my donation from them to Mary TV!
I am still praying that one day my family can take the trip to Medjugorje but in the meantime I feel such a connection there just through this rosary ministry.
Please keep my family and this ministry in your prayers. I continue to pray for you and Mary TV as well and am so thankful for all you do for all of us each day just by showing up!
Much love and blessings,

Kara ( The Rosary Potter )

June Klins (www.spiritofmedjugorje.org) writes: “My son and daughter-in-law and kids were on vacation in Canada and saw the Mary TV billboard and took a picture.  It made them very happy!~
Here is another way to spread the word:


This pilgrim found another way to spread Our Lady’s presence.  Thanks, Bruce!!

A big “Thank You” to our donors!!

We are still aiming to reach 1000 monthly donors….At present we have 345 monthly donors. What a blessing it is to Mary TV!   But many donors would rather give once or twice a year. Awesome as well!! However it works best for you, please join MaryTV’s team! Our Lady has asked us to be responsible for sharing the gifts we receive in Medjugorje. Supporting Mary TV is a good way to do it!

Our Lady has said to us:
“My children, listen to me. I speak for your salvation!” (March 18, 2016)
“Pray with the heart little children and do not lose hope because God loves his creatures. He desires to save you one by one through my coming here!” (March 25, 2003)
“My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!” (Nov. 2, 2014)
Mary TV’s work is just beginning…. And you are the most important part of our team…. Please continue your prayerful intercession and  donations. We need you in order to continue!

The 21.Mladifest Medjugorje starts August 1, 2016!  Don’t miss it!

July 29, 2016
Dear Apostles for Our Lady,

Shipmates sailing with her upon the digital sea….

On Monday, August 1, 2016 the 27 Mladifest Medjugorje begins!!

From August 1 to 6, 2016, youth from all over the world will gather in Medjugorje for six days of prayer, witnessing and worship!! Mary TV will live stream as much of the youth festival as we possibly can. Here is a link to the daily schedule:

During this time, we will have to change our streaming schedule to accommodate the festival:
There will be no “Hour of Mercy” from August 1 through 5
Our Daily Rosary will air at 3:00 pm Medjugorje time (9:00 am EDT) from August 2 through 5
We will also stream Mirjana’s Apparition on August 2.  Check the web page for details and further additions to our broadcast schedule.

Join us for this joyous and very important festival. And pray for our team, as they will be working in the heat all day long to live-stream this time of prayer and witnessing of faith in the young people.

New features on the Mary TV App!!
An exciting new feature was just added to Mary TV’s APP (photo above)! By clicking on the “share” icon in the right hand top corner of our “On Demand Videos”, you can immediately share that specific video by email, Facebook, Twitter, or WhatsApp. There’s also an “Audio Only” function on the Mary TV App so you can be connected to Medjugorje while you’re jogging or driving in your car…. The APP is free…tell friends – and tell them how important it is to stay connected to Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje. She just told us Jesus is sending her among us so that she may grant us safety!  
Thank you for helping Mary TV update equipment!!
Thanks to your continued support (spiritual and financial) Mary TV’s shipment of new and refurbished technical equipment will be arriving in Medjugorje tomorrow – just in time for the Youth Festival (see the top of Mary TV’s web page MaryTV.tv for our Live streaming schedule next week).
Our team is really grateful…they won’t have to be nursing equipment along during the Youth Festival and the rest of this summer. Remember, most of our filming is outside, in all kinds of weather, every day, 365 days a year! (And a big “Thank You” to Michele, our shipmate in Delaware, for bringing our extra suitcase with her to Medjugorje.)
The Queen of Peace is herself Heaven’s peace plan!
The Queen of Peace is herself Heaven’s peace plan for today’s poor tired world, growing more and more in need of peace with each passing day: “Dear children! My real, living presence among you should make you happy because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety!” (July 2, 2016).
Through Mary TV’s channel you can be praying with Our Lady (and her children gathered around her in Medjugorje) 24 hours a day, seven days a week! And that’s important: My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!” (November 2, 2014)
A little pat on the back for the Mary TV Team:
We’re being good stewards with your donations…. A friend who works for IBM and who is familiar with the technology Mary TV is using, just wrote to me:
“Technically Mary TV is definitely in a very good place. It’s really incredible. IBM is using multi-million dollar equipment to stream events, and Mary TV is doing the same thing for pennies, just a fraction of their budget. IBM is trying to create a streaming channel like Mary TV has, but hasn’t succeeded yet.”

.

Broadcast TV is still our hope!
IMPORTANT: Everything MaryTV is doing through the Internet today can easily be transitioned into full broadcast quality television… Note the photo (above) of our main TV studio, which, I’m sorry to say, has been sitting unfinished for more than 10 years! With several $50,000 donations we could easily transition into broadcast television…With the way the world is hurtling, it seems to be time! Pray for peace. Pray with the heart, little children, and do not lose hope because God loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by one, through my coming here,”(March 25, 2003).
Feel free to purchase a lottery ticket (I won’t, but you can)! Or go out and find someone who has money they could donate…. Consider including Mary TV in your will!

PS. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the way to go to Medjugorje is with a group. Our Lady delights in pouring out her graces upon her children through her children! That’s the way she loves to do it!
Cathy and I experienced the most incredible graces through Michael’s group that we just went to Medjugorje with last month. And the way we are sticking together – staying in touch ­- those graces are continuing!!!!
Michael will be taking two more groups:
August 10-23 to Medjugorje, Assisi and Rome (or Aug 11-19 Medj only)
October 3 – October 14 Medjugorje
.
I’m told some airline tickets right now are incredibly low! NOW IS THE TIME TO GO! Call Michael and don’t put off getting those tickets – prices can change every day! (October is the most beautiful month – and a lot of a pilgrim’s time is spent outside) ….
Call Michael today before his pilgrimages fill up:

PPS. Cathy recently received this lovely email:
Cathy,
 I hope there are a lot more people who have decided to become monthly donors since the 35th anniversary…  I have been interested in Medjugorje and your ministry for years! While I was watching the events (of the anniversary), I realized how important your ministry is and that I want everyone to know about it.  I wanted to put up a billboard in our area, but I had difficulty…  I was a little discouraged for a while.  Then I realized I could be a monthly donor and that would be even better for you.  I had wanted to do this for a while, but just had not made that commitment yet.  I’m so glad I did.  I want to see that monthly donor thermometer grow because you really, really need everything you get to provide the world with Mary’s Messages…  Bless you for your work.  Angie

The Mary TV coffee/tea house full of happy pilgrims!

July 14, 2016
Dear Apostles for Our Lady,
Mary TV’s coffee/tea house is buzzing with happy pilgrims! Tell everyone you know going to Medjugorje to stop on in… Rosie has a pot of tea waiting!!!!
We’re grateful to Mary TV’s intercessors and donors – the most important part of our team – for making it possible for us to be in Medjugorje for the 35th Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions! It was a time of amazing grace for us all…. (and you were there with us…. every day Cathy and I lit a candle for our Mary TV shipmates – remembering you in all our prayers – as you were so obviously remembering us in yours)!

A candle a day for your intentions!

“Give thanks to God with me for the gift of my being with you… Persevere in prayer so that, with you, I can realize my plans,” Our Lady told us in her Anniversary message of June 25th. And on July 2nd: “Dear children! My real, living presence among you should make you happy because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety!”
Is there anyone in the world today not concerned for their safety? This message needs to get spread! And with the Parish’s Information Center no longer giving out Our Lady’s messages Mary TV’s mission is even more important!
 
Divine appointments and new initiatives:
Thanks to your prayers our precious days in Medjugorje were filled with what can only be called divine appointments! Everywhere we went – every day – it seemed we were running into the right person we needed to see just at the right moment! And this continued until just before we left. In fact, as we were about to step into our cab taking us to the airport just after English Mass, I looked up at the last two people I was saying good-bye to – and out of the blue it dawned upon me they were the two people who needed to be in contact with one another in order for Mary TV to set up a third POV camera at a strategic place of prayer in Medjugorje, where Our Lady’s children from around the world would be able to pray 24/7 – at any time of day or night! I hadn’t even had setting up that POV camera on my “to do” list! But at the very last moment before leaving, just before stepping into the cab, it was arranged!

During our time in Medjugorje Mary TV added another program. Often Fr. Leon will give a little timely catechesis just before the beginning of Mass. Mary TV is now recording and starting to air these little pearls of great price, “Sanctuary Snippets”.   You won’t want to miss these either!

English Mass

Cathy and shipmate Sabina react to Fr. Leon’s Snippet!

After Josip and Christina’s wedding, two buses were waiting to take us to the reception. Sabrina, who had sent her purse ahead of her with a friend, to save her a seat, found the bus had left without her. The directions to the reception were in her purse. But just then someone came around the corner of the church who recognized her: “You are Fruit show #123…. I’m Fruit show #215! Traci gave her money to take a cab and directions to the reception…
Our technical team from the US was able to witness our team in Medjugorje in action. Tom and Matt noticed the Zubac’s boys were nursing equipment along – somehow keeping old equipment going while doing their jobs. They would never have told us new equipment was needed (constant use in all kinds of weather, the equipment takes a beating) so we have purchased new equipment.
We have purchased new and refurbished equipment and need to get it over to Medjugorje. If you know anyone going, please ask them if they’d be willing to take an extra suitcase for Mary TV (Mary TV will pay the $100 charge). We hope to get this equipment to Medjugorje before the Youth Festival, which begins on August 1st.

Dear Mary TV family:

Those who miss Mary TV’s streaming of the English Mass from St. James Church should know that this was due not to any restriction imposed by the parish itself but by a higher authority. If you are saddened by this development, please feel free to write to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) and ask Cardinal Gerhard Muller to allow this streaming to continue (See below). What we are doing is strictly broadcasting the Holy Mass, i.e. disseminating the fundamental act of worship of the Church.

The second Vatican Council states in “Sacrosanctum Concilium”:

26. Liturgical services are not private functions, but are celebrations of the Church, which is the “sacrament of unity,” namely, the holy people united and ordered under their bishops [33]
Therefore liturgical services pertain to the whole body of the Church; they manifest it and have effects upon it; but they concern the individual members of the Church in different ways, according to their differing rank, office, and actual participation.

27. It is to be stressed that whenever rites, according to their specific nature, make provision for communal celebration involving the presence and active participation of the faithful, this way of celebrating them is to be preferred, so far as possible, to a celebration that is individual and quasi-private.

We hope and pray that the relevant ecclesiastical authorities recognize that such dissemination of the Mass is fundamental to the New Evangelization. Any obstacle to this dissemination is detrimental to the principles of Evangelization as well as the promotion of right doctrine and worship! The Church wants as many people as possible to participate in the Mass as a whole particularly by using today’s mass communications media. Imagine a situation where TV viewers are denied the opportunity to watch a papal Mass (which is the case only in countries like North Korea)! So it’s simply inexplicable that there’s a prohibition on the broadcast of a Mass being celebrated in a Catholic church in good standing and one which (as even the Zadar declaration of the Yugoslavian bishops’ conference acknowledges) attracts “numerous gatherings of the faithful from different parts of the world.” Surely the Eucharistic celebration in Medjugorje does not have any characteristics that make it off-limits to the rest of the world!

Request the CDF to clarify. Write:

His Eminence Cardinal Gerhard Muller
Prefect, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
Piazza del S. Uffizio, 11, 00193
Roma, Italy

Sincerely,
Denis Nolan
