Simon, son of John, do you love me?

A big smile from heaven!(C) Mary TV/Anthony Zubac 2019   May 6, 2019 Dear Family of Mary! “Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to respond to the great love of my Son, with pure and open hearts, with complete trust. I know the greatness of His love. I carried Him within me, the Host in the heart, the light and the love of the world. My children,also my addressing you is a sign of the love and tenderness of the Heavenly Father-a big smile filled with the love of my Son, a call to eternal life…” (May 2, 2019) Our Lady wants us to love Jesus back. She wants the love that her Son has for us, that deep and incredibly strong love, to be received and reciprocated! She wants us to love Him back. And I think He wants us to love Him back too. I think, in fact, that Jesus waits for us to love Him. Yes, He became one of us, completely human, so that He could be with us, teach us, suffer for us and die for us. Yes, He rose again, in order to prove to us that He would take us with him to heaven. He showed us that He is God! And He is the God who loves us!   But I believe there is another dimension to Jesus’ great love! It is the human dimension. Jesus loves us because we are His own family now. He loves us! And wants us to love Him back with our own little human love. Why? Because He wants us to be in love with Him like He is with us! Yesterday at Mass, we read from John 21, in which Jesus meets the Apostles at the seaside after the Resurrection. He cooks them breakfast! He invites them to come ashore and be with Him. He then takes Peter aside and asks him three times, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” We realize that Jesus is rectifying the three times that Peter denied Him during His Passion. It seems Jesus is also testing Peter to see if He has recovered from His fall. But I sense another level in this conversation. I think Jesus missed Peter’s love. I think Peter was so full of shame, that he wasn’t relating to Jesus with the love he had given Him before the Passion. Jesus missed His old friend and wanted their relationship to be healed. And so, He asked Peter three times to say, out loud, that he loved Him. That could have caused a healing in Peter, the healing of his broken heart. Peter must have realized the Jesus actually needed Him. Jesus loved Peter and wanted their relationship to be healed. Jesus loved Peter so much at that moment. And this great love is also there for each of us. Jesus wants all of us to love Him as Peter did. He wants us to realize how much He loves each one of us. He loves us so deeply, humanly, and truly, that if we knew it we would cry with joy!! This love for us, this love for each of us IS the BIG SMILE!!! Like Peter, we need to be healed in our hearts from the shame and brokenness of our sins and realize that Jesus really misses us and needs us to be in a loving relationship with Him. He wants it!! He wants us to be His friends. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!Cathy Nolan©Mary TV 2019    

“Choose life and not death of the soul!”

(c)Anthony Zubac/Mary TV May 6, 2019 Dear Family of Mary TV, Again, in just one 30-day period, the month of April 2019, thousands of Our Lady’s children around the world – in 127 countries, (4, 527 cities!) were praying with the parish in Medjugorje through Mary TV! Our Lady said, “All those who listen to my messages and live them are my parish!” St. James Parish is more and more extending out into the world!   What a blow to the devil!   And it couldn’t come at a more important time. Pope St. John Paul ll said: “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced…We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist!”    Twenty years before, Sr. Lucia of Fatima had testified: “The most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world, but She made me understand this for three reasons. The first reason is because She told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious, and the other side will suffer defeat. Also, from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil.  There is no other possibility.”   I was a little boy.  And it wasn’t a dream…   Far in the distance I would see a tiny headlight approaching slowly, very slowly.  All of a sudden it came upon us – a terrifying locomotive, huge – the roar deafening, unbearable, terrible!   And there was no place to hide.  People frantically were searching everywhere.    Paralyzed with fear, hardly able to move, I inched my way down the hall to my parents’ room.  Entering in a burst of tears, I’d sob: “Will Jesus ever forgive us?  Will Jesus every forgive us?”   Three generations later, I understand. A terrible reckoning is coming because of abortion. It is the sacrament being given to Satan. Abortion is the ‘blood sacrifice’ the devil now demands.   There are nine ways to be an accessory to an abortion: 1. By counsel; 2. By command; 3. By consent; 4. By provocation; 5. By praise or flattery; 6. By concealment; 7. By partnership; 8. By silence; 9. By defense.   Our good friend the exorcist, Fr. Raymond Donohue (Fruit of Medjugorje episode # 335 at tells parishioners from the pulpit: “To vote for an abortion free trip candidate is the same as killing that baby yourself! We will all have to answer to God, and you can’t put anything over on God. No fast-talking politician or those who vote for them, can make any excuses before God. Never… Ever vote for a pro-death candidate…it could very well cost you your very Soul.”   Eleven years before I was born Our Lady told the secretary of God’s Mercy, St. Faustina: “I gave the Savior to the world; as for you, you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful Savior, but as a just judge.  Oh, how terrible is that day!  Determined is the day of justice, the day of divine wrath.  The angels tremble before it.  Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still the time for [granting] mercy.  If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day.  Fear nothing.  Be faithful to the end.  I sympathize with you.”   Today Our Lady tells us: ” I gave my Son to you and am giving Him to you anew… Therefore, my children, do not wander, do not close your heart before that truth, hope and love. Everything around you is passing and everything is falling apart, only the glory of God remains. Therefore, renounce everything that distances you from the Lord.”   “Only the glory of God remains!” That’s really good news! It’s also serious. Pray that so many good people who are being deceived will “Choose life and not death of the soul!”     Denis Nolan
