Dear Family of Mary TV:
I want to thank you, our intercessors – our donors. Working together we’re going to be ready!
Mary TV is at a turning point.
Our technical team in the States is heading to Medjugorje to join Mary TV’s team on the ground upgrading technology and studio equipment. We’ll have new and stronger wireless capabilities; new High Definition point of view (POV) cameras on Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain, and a new High Definition POV camera at another important place of prayer in Medjugorje. Our Lady’s children can be present and pray at any one of these holy places – 24/7 – from anywhere in the world!
For the next two weeks, please keep Tom and Matt Matasso, Josip, Kiki and Mario Zubac in your prayers. (I can’t wait for you to see some exciting new developments during the youth festival)! We’re installing new microwave Wi-Fi point to point equipment, new cubes for live broadcasting and new streaming computers…
And thanks to your donations we’ve been able to purchase state of the art software for our internet TV channel from an Italian company that provides equipment and software to numerous professional TV and radio facilities, including CTV, the Vatican TV facility.
Returning from Medjugorje at the beginning of August, Tom will stop in Bologna, Italy, to attend an operations and engineering class offered by that company in order to fine tune our new Internet TV channel software system. Already our internet TV channel has begun broadcasting HD quality!
We’re also able to set up a duplicate back up streaming computer in Colorado, so that if our main streaming computer for the Internet TV channel loses connection, we can switch immediately to the streaming computer in Colorado with no downtime….
We’re getting ready!!!!
And this is where you come in, the most important part of Mary TV’s team. We need your intercessory prayer now more than ever. Tom just told me today: “Our technology is being attacked. It’s very unusual to have so many problems happening all at once – they just keep coming on and on – problems we’ve never had before. It’s very clear it’s a spiritual attack!”
These two weeks (July 22 through August 6) are critical to Mary TV, and our ability to be ready for the “Turning Point” that Our Lady announced on June 2, 2017. Our task is to use communications technologies to connect Medjugorje to the world and the world to Medjugorje. The enemy stands directly against this project. Now is the time for all Mary TV’s shipmates to enter into spiritual warfare. Pray, pray, pray for the team, for their travel, their safety – that our new equipment arrives safely – that nothing will interfere with Our Lady’s plans. Have Masses said for the success of their work. And pray for the connections Our Lady desires to take place in Medjugorje.
These next two weeks are spiritual warfare time!
Just before being called to the Papacy, St. John Paul ll told the world: “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through…We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, of the Gospel verses the anti-Gospel.”
Five years later Our Lady started coming to Medjugorje, prompting St. John Paul ll to declare:“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world!” (February 24, 1990). Our Lady’s coming to Medjugorje changes everything! She’s routing Satan. “You are not alone; I am with you through the grace which the Most High gives me for you and your descendants.” She’s here for the duration. “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.”
Before he died St. John Paul ll made his final and last appeal to the Church: “Do not be afraid of new technologies.” He said that using them “is the responsibility of each and every one!”
Only with you – the most important part of Mary TV’s team – will we succeed in our mission to bring Medjugorje – by way of new communication technologies – to the whole world!
PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!

MARY TV was LIVE STREAMING Ivan’s May 24, 2013 apparition on the top of Mt. Podbrdo 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 the 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 Facebook, MARY TV’s page opened with this picture, captioned: “Mary Appears Over Building in Medjugorje Photo Taken by Pilgrim” Our Lady is standing directly over Mary TV’s studios, right where we have two POV cameras that are streaming Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain 24/7 !
MISSION STATEMENT: MARY TV is a lay apostolate founded to put at the Gospa’s service (Our Lady’s service) modern communication technologies to bring her presence in Medjugorje – and her school in Medjugorje – to the world.
