June 24, 2020 Reflection – 39th Anniversary begins!

The Peace March (2019) (c) Mary TV J.M.J. June 24, 2020 The Nativity of St. John the Baptist Dear Family of Mary! We have arrived at the 39th Anniversary of Our Lady’s coming in Medjugorje. What a wonder it is that Our Lady, the Queen of Peace, has been with us for these many years!! Today we will remember the first time that Our Lady was visible on Apparition Hill. She was waving at the visionaries and it was such a shock for them!! Tomorrow, June 25, the visionaries first talked with Our Lady and so this is the day that Our Lady remembers as the anniversary day of their relationship! On June 21, 2020, Marija Pavlovic Lunetti was at the original apparition site with the guides and local people, and she shared a little bit from her heart about this anniversary and what it means for us. Here are her words: I want all of you to hear that holiness is possible. We have examples that we have known and hugged. Those people who today are in heaven. We pray for their intercession. We have had the wonderful support, and example of St. John Paul II whose motto was “Totally Yours”. Also in a small way, but truthfully in a big way, Fr Skavko Barbaric, whom I pray to everyday. He was my first confessor and great support that each day I could become stronger through confession and advise. He said to me: “But Marija, you are chosen! Don’t allow trials to suppress you! He always said to me, “But you are chosen!” This means we are all chosen! Our Lady chose all of us, chose us and said, “I chose Medugorje!” We can’t say Medugorje is mine or I am Medugorje. Medugorje is Our Lady’s! If it wasn’t for Our Lady Medugorje would be nothing. We are no one and nothing. Our Lady takes us higher and higher towards heaven! Our Lady loves us. Today she loves us, she has not abandoned us, she is with us. She repeats that she will not allow the devil to reign. So, pray! Be courageous! Be missionaries there in the place God has placed you! Encourage one another in holiness! Just please do not forget this one thing, that God, through Our Lady, will triumph! May God bless you and may Our Lady give you all strength so that each day you will become stronger and stronger and become dear joyful missionaries of Our Lady. May God bless you and Our Lady look after you! Amen We can take great solace in Marija’s words. God the Father will triumph through Our Lady! He will win!! She will win!! Our enemy will be defeated!! We can be joyful missionaries of Our Lady of Medjugorje!! There is such hope and joy! Let’s pray this prayer of consecration to Our Lady (dictated to Jelena by Our Lady), in response to Marija’s hopeful words: Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 11/28/1983) O Immaculate Heart of Mary, overflowing with goodness, Show us your love for us. May the flame of your heart, Oh Mary, Descend upon all peoples. We love you immensely. Impress in our hearts a true love. May our hearts yearn for you. Oh Mary, sweet and humble of heart, Remember us when we sin. You know that all mankind are sinners. Through your most sacred and maternal heart, Cure us from every spiritual illness. Make us capable of looking at the beauty of your maternal heart, And that, thus, we may be converted to the flame of your heart. Amen In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2020 PS.

June 23, 2020 Update from Denis – The 39th Anniversary

Our Virtual Presence in Medjugorje June 23, 2020 Dear Children of Our Lady of Medjugorje: The day after tomorrow we will be celebrating the 39th Anniversary of Our Lady’s daily apparitions in Medjugorje. Tomorrow will actually begin the 40th year of her “real, living presence among” 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!” Our Lady today proudly wears the crown of Queen of Earth.  And she’s not leaving.  It’s Satan who is being routed as prince of the world.  He has no future and is putting up a terrible fight.  She’s told us: “This time is my time,” and, “I am calling you to be with me in prayer in this time of grace when darkness is fighting against the light.” “Dear children! Also, in this difficult time God’s love sends me to you. My children, do not be afraid, I am with you. With complete trust give me your hearts, that I may help you to recognize the signs of the time in which you live. I will help you to come to know the love of my Son. I will triumph through you!” Our Mother requested that the Anniversary of her apparitions every year be celebrated on June 25th because that was the first day the visionaries spoke to her – the first day they responded to her call.    As we enter into this very important 40th year of our Mother’ extraordinary presence with us, let us rededicate ourselves in our response: “God has chosen each one of you in order to use you for the great plan of salvation of mankind.  You cannot comprehend how great your role is in God’s plan.  Therefore, dear children, pray, so that through prayer you may comprehend God’s plan through you.  I am with you so that you can realize it completely!” She has told us that with our help: “Everything that I desire to realize through the secrets I began in Fatima, may be fulfilled. I call you, dear children, to now grasp the importance of my coming and the seriousness of the situation. I want to save all souls and present them to God. Therefore, let us pray that everything I have begun be fully realized.” I can’t say it any clearer than Our Lady says it herself: “Little children, do not forget that you are all important in this great plan, which God leads through Medjugorje. God desires to convert the entire world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards Himself, who is the beginning and the end of every being. In a special way, little children, from the depth of my heart, I call you all to open yourselves to this great grace that God gives you through my presence here.” “Dear children! Today I call you to pray and fast for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan. Here I began with this parish and invited the entire world. Many have responded, but there is an enormous number of those who do not want to hear or accept my call. Therefore, you who have said ‘yes’, be strong and resolute. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady said that Satan offered to give back to God the rest of the world in exchange for Medjugorje.  He’s terrified of God’s plan unfolding there.  Our Lady told us that Jesus promised her that evil will never win because we are there with her in Medjugorje! And today the only way to be there is through the Internet. Thanks to your prayers and donations Mary TV connects the world with Medjugorje.  And thanks to your prayers and donations our programming is increasing, and our technology is advancing… Mary TV’s Medjugorje internet TV network continues broadcasting 24/7 in high definition – to the three major time zones in the world!  Every month people in thousands of cities throughout the world are praying with the parish in Medjugorje through Mary TV.
