The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Dear Family of Mary, Our Lady Queen of Peace:
On September 1st, due to complaints he received (as far as I know not coming from anyone praying at the Blue Cross) the Pastor of St. James Church in Medjugorje, Fr. Marinko Sakota, requested that Mary TV no longer stream from the Blue Cross over the Internet….
Please join me in praying that we continue serving Our Lady according to her plans – for the sake of her children far away. Prayer at the Blue Cross gives powerful example – and witness to our Lady’s presence.
“Dear children! Love, pray and witness my presence to all those who are far away. By your witness and example, you can draw closer the hearts that are far from God and His grace. I am with you and intercede for each of you so that, with love and resoluteness, you may witness and encourage all those who are far from my Immaculate Heart. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (April 25, 2017)
Fr. Slavko Barbaric understood the importance of using modern communication technologies for the sake of Our Lady’s children far away. He always gave his permission when I’d ask him to allow our cameras inside the church (when it was up to him). I remember once in the early 90’s Fr. Slavko throwing his outstretched arms back against the wall of the parish rectory, telling me, “Because of politics, I’m on the cross!”
Fr. Marinko too – a heroic pastor for the Gospa – is on the cross. Please pray for him.
Pray for Mary TV.
Pray for Our Lady’s plans.
During an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, Our Lady spoke with Vicka about my plan to begin Mary TV. Vicka told me afterwards that Our Lady had said the plan was good: “But you need to wait a little. Now you can get prepared little by little, until Our Lady tells when the right moment is. You don’t need to hurry (make haste) but to be patient.” *
Slowly Our Lady started gathering an amazing team. In June, 2007, Vicka told me she was praying every day for Mary TV to become a reality. And then the following year, on October 22, 2008, Our Lady said to begin. She asked us to start praying the Rosary over the internet.
This November my wife and I will begin our 9th year of praying the rosary Live over the internet – seven days a week – with Our Lady’s children on six continents, consecrating the internet to Our Lady of Medjugorje! Mary TV’s Medjugorje internet TV channel broadcasts 24/7.
This past September 1st, when she appeared on the mountain, Our Lady called to us: “Dear children, today I wish to invite you again to pray at this time in particular for my intentions, for the plans I wish to accomplish with my coming. Pray, dear children, and be persevering in prayer!
Please pray that Mary TV stays right in step with Our Lady’s plans – doesn’t get ahead of her, and doesn’t lag behind.
Thank you and God bless you!
*When Our Lady said this to Vicka, the technical genius she had her eye upon, who would begin Mary TV’s Live streaming from Medjugorje, was 7 years old. Josip Zubac, presently a technical expert working for IBM in the US, is married to Mary TV’s video editor, Christina Georgotas. Keep Christina in joyful prayer. They are expecting the birth of their first child this month!
