Mary TV’s viewership is growing every day!
Statistics from just the past 30 days reveal that thousands of Our Lady’s children (in one hundred and forty-three countries!!!) were taking part in the Masses and prayer in Medjugorje through MaryTV’s LIVE streaming. And this is no small thing! “My Son promised me that evil will never win because you, the souls of the just, are here!”(11/2/14): In just the last 30 days alone – thousands of Our Lady’s children in:
” 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)
Bishop Victor H. Phalana from South Africa, who just arrived in Medjugorje the day before yesterday – coming from a synod in Rome with the Holy Father, gives his testimony in this Monday night’s Fruit of Medjugorje (#233). After speaking about the incredible spirituality of Medjugorje, he says:
“I really want to thank the Lord for Mary TV because I had not heard about it. So now I can go back and promote it and tell the people: please, for spiritual input, listen to MaryTV and then I will be able to give them the website and everything.!
“I knew about Radio Maria, but I didn’t know about MaryTV. Thank God for this initiative and may it continue to touch hearts, especially for those who wish and long to come here but are unable to. We pray that through Mary TV they too may be able to hear the message of God and be able to love Our Lady as the church loves her.
“She has never let us down and her powerful intercession has rescued us and has protected us, has protected our vocations, has protected many families, has protected many young people who were at the point of self-destruction. But Mary’s intercession comes always at the right time. We are calling her ‘Mother of Mercy’ because she is the Mother of the merciful Jesus. She’s the Mother of Mercy. So her powerful intercession bestows and brings to us personal experience of God’s Divine Mercy. Thank you! May God bless your ministry!”
“Dear children! You have always prayed that I not abandon you. Now I ask of you, in turn, not to abandon me!” (February, 1985)
Your donations are making it possible for Our Lady’s children around the world to be present with her in Medjugorje through Mary TV’s LIVE streaming. Thanks to your generosity Mary TV’s Medjugorje internet TV channel is broadcasting 24/7! However, we are still just barely able to cover the costs of the operations and programming; and often times we have to proceed near, or in the red. We pray every day for God’s blessing on our efforts, so that we may continue to serve Our Lady in this way, and that we will not have to scale back the programming and outreach. So, again, we respectfully ask for your financial support, and your prayers… that we can keep moving forward, serving Our Lady, and you, through our website and programming. It’s a huge undertaking, yet somehow we have been able to do it on a very, very tight budget and with a small but incredibly hard working staff. But that may not be fully sustainable into the future. Mary TV can only continue to provide all that it does if our donations increase, and we thank you again so much for your incredible generosity, and all the prayers offered on our behalf.

Queen of Peace Ministries was for 25 years the sponsor of the National Conference on Medjugorje, at the University of Notre Dame. They have generously given us their mail list which includes the names of participants and attendees of past Medjugorje conferences. This list will allow us to let all those people know about MaryTV — that the Medjugorje TV channel is broadcasting 24/7, and the site includes comprehensive programming from Medjugorje that they will find enriching. Sending out a mailer to such a large mailing list is something we had not anticipated, but the opportunity is just too important to pass up…. Especially since Queen of Peace Ministries will no longer be sponsoring Medjugorje conferences at Notre Dame. This will give us a way to connect all those folks, who love Our Lady, to Medjugorje through Mary TV.
The cost of such a large mailer, including the postage fees, is approximately $6,500. We can only take advantage of this opportunity if someone, or a few people, come forward with a special donation to cover this cost, or part of it…. Please pray about it. We do need word to get out about what MaryTV is offering. And this particular group of people, on the list have already shown an interest in and love for Our Lady of Medjugorje. We are finding out that so many people, who love Our Lady of Medjugorje, do not know about Mary TV!! The day before yesterday Bishop Phalana was so happy to find out about Mary TV.
We are trying to spread word about Mary TV as best we can, but marketing campaigns like this are incredibly expensive. People are often shocked and LOVE finding out that from anywhere in the world they can be connected LIVE to Medjugorje….
“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).
We are also designing some great Mary TV bumper stickers. Be on the lookout for an email from me, soon, with the information about these, and how you can get some for your cars and your friends!!
“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)
There are still seats available to join Michael’s Medjugorje pilgrimage Oct 3 to the 14th (You can call him at 574 335 9952; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) Some airline tickets are still available at ½ the usual price. There seems to be heavy spiritual warfare surrounding this pilgrimage. The devil is afraid of the faithful going to Medjugorje. Our Lady has called us all …. Contact Michael!
The “heroes” of Medjugorje are not the visionaries or the Franciscans (as heroic as they have been)! I believe when all is revealed and we see things in the clear light of God we’ll discover from His perspective the heroes of Medjugorje are those who have responded to Our Lady’s call and gone to Medjugorje. “My Son promised me that evil will never win because you, the souls of the just, are here!” (November 2, 2014)
Several responses that just came in from our shipmates:
There is no money that could possibly pay back Mary’s TV enhancement of our spiritual lives. Its actually priceless. God Bless You & Denis.
Denis and Cathy,
Thank you for all you do! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your dedication! You keep me from losing hope with everything that’s going on. Whenever I start freaking out, I turn on Mary TV and listen to you and it brings me so much peace!
Please don’t stop what you are doing. It’s helping people all over the world!
May God continue to richly bless you!
I’m sending one check for 2016 instead of one per month.
Dear Denis and Cathy,
Just a quick note to thank you both so much for still doing a live rosary every day when you are not home. My husband and I are so thankful, and in awe actually, at your beautiful commitment to our Lady and all of us who pray with you every day.
I could not live without the daily rosary with you. I knew I would love it and really appreciated it as an option in my day, in the beginning, but had no idea how integral it would become to my spiritual life. Mary TV is really a beautiful, beautiful gift. A Grace from heaven actually. We so appreciate what the two of you do.
I watch all Father Leon’s content too. He is amazing!!!!!! I could listen to him talk for hours. And the mother Teresa content is wonderful. I am going to play that on the TV screen for my family tonight. The sisters here had a beautiful Mass and celebration for her last Sunday at the Cathedral. They got to stay up all night and watch the coverage of the canonization on EWTN, a volunteer brought a TV in for them. They have no televisions and are not allowed to watch except for special occasions like this. So they were thrilled.
Hope you are having a pleasant weekend away from home!!!
God Bless you both,
