Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children!

I am calling you to be prayer in this time of grace. You all have problems, afflictions, sufferings and lack of peace. May saints be models to you and an encouragement for holiness; God will be near you and you will be renewed in seeking through your personal conversion. Faith will be hope to you and joy will begin to reign in your hearts. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (October 25, 2017)

One of the pilgrims on our pilgrimage in early October has shared with us her beautiful experience of what it means to “Be Prayer!” Thank you, Patty, for sharing the fruit of your pilgrimage!

Hi Cathy,
(Hi Denis and Michael!)

I was able to pray the rosary with you and Denis this morning (Thursday’s Rosary) and want to let you know how deeply Our Lady is using Mary TV to pour out her graces on all of us.

I also want to share some of the graces I received on the pilgrimage. Denis is right that Michael lets Our Lady lead the pilgrimage. I could see her guiding hand in every moment I was there, with every interaction. I feel so loved that Our Lady placed me under Michael’s care for my time there. And, within Mary TV’s family!!! Such love!!!

Our Lady’s message: “Be prayer” was the message of Medjugorje for me. Be prayer and not ego!!! She let me see that every time I experienced a small irritation in the midst of Medjugorje crowds, it was my ego that was doing the perceiving, instead of my spirit surrendered to Her. For example, the woman who lit up her cigarette and was talking while I was trying to listen to Vicka was NOT the source of my irritation. My not-surrendered ego caused this to happen. Our Lady spoke to my heart gently about this woman, “She is my precious daughter. I brought her here. Help her to see Vicka more clearly.” Hahaha! This meant offering her my spot on the street that had a view of Vicka. Once I did so, the peace that passes all understanding flooded my heart.

Another example: I remained at the top of mountain to pray at the Cross after the rest of the group left. I craved silent prayer. Hahaha! Well, 4 young women in their twenties, dressed in very stylish clothes, arrived just then with their mother and uncle. I am not sure where the mother and uncle went, but these young Spanish women were chatting and laughing an using the base of the Cross as the backdrop for pictures and selfies. They were posing and laughing…and of course, I was irritated and a bit judgmental. Once, I considered speaking to them about this being a place of prayer, but Our Lady stopped me because it was my ego motivating my speech. I was clearly irritated. Instead, Our Lady urged me to pray for them and to enjoy their chatter as youthful life! And, just to make sure I did not miss the point, when I decided to go back down the mountain, the young women also decided to go back down the mountain. And, when it became tricky for me in places walking down, the young women stayed with me and encouraged me!!! Our Lady has the best sense of humor in her teachings.

This lesson has continued from that moment on.

Another insight from Our Lady is this meditation/prayer she gave to me while praying during Eucharistic Adoration:

Jesus, I believe in you.

Jesus, I surrender all to you.
Jesus, I rejoice in you.
Jesus, I intercede with you.

Jesus, I trust all to you.

She wants me to live this. As I reflect on this more, I think this is what it means for me to “BE prayer” : believe, surrender, rejoice, intercede, trust.

Lots of love and prayers!


It always amazes me how easily Our Lady can speak to us in Medjugorje. She has a direct line into our hearts there, and seems able to instruct us personally. Oh what a grace it is to go to Medjugorje!!

I agree with Patty also about Michael. He is a very prayerful presence for the pilgrims.

God bless all of us this day, and may we “Be Prayer” today and every day.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world!”

Pope St. John Paul II – February 24, 1990

“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 of Medjugorje – July 2, 2016

“Rejoice, little children, because God is merciful and loves you all with His immeasurable love and leads you to the way of salvation through my coming here!”

Our Lady of Medjugorje – June 25, 2018

Our Lady Speaks

Vicka's Note MaryTV

Vicka, one of the visionaries in Medjugorje, wrote the note (above) after Our Lady spoke with her during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about Mary TV’s  plan to build a television facility in Medjugorje.

Vicka wrote to Denis: “Our Lady says that the plan is 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.”

When Our Lady said this to Vicka, the technical genius in Medjugorje that she had her eyes upon, who would begin Mary TV’s live streaming from Medjugorje, was seven years old.

Totus Tuus (Totally Yours)

Immaculate Conception, Mary my Mother, Live in me, Act in me, Speak in me and through me, Think your thoughts in my mind, Love through my heart, Give me your dispositions and feelings, Teach, lead me and guide me to Jesus, Correct, enlighten and expand my thoughts and behavior, Possess my soul, Take over my entire personality and life, replace it with Yourself, Incline me to constant adoration, Pray in me and through me, Let me live in you and keep me in this union always.

Our Lady gave this prayer 25 years before She started appearing in Medjugorje. This prayer is being answered through Our Lady’s presence in Medjugorje and through Her messages. Mother Immaculata writes: “This is Mary’s hour and She is about to crush Satan’s head. Her very being is like incandescent heat in the center of the Trinity and the manifestation of Her power is growing daily. The Immaculate Conception prayer (which is what Our Lady called the prayer she gave me for union with Her) has been used by exorcists who have told me that the devil reacts violently to it and is subdued by it. We are praying daily for the success of Mary TV!“

Our Lady Gives A Sign…


MARY TV was LIVE STREAMING Ivan’s May 24, 2013 apparition on Mt. Podbrdo (Apparition Hill) 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 her computer 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 Mary TV’s Facebook page, the page opened with this picture that she had never seen before, captioned: “MARY APPEARS OVER BUILDING IN MEDJUGORJE, PHOTO TAKEN BY PILGRIM.” Our Lady is standing directly over MARY TV’s studios, her feet right where we have two POV cameras STREAMING 24/7 LIVE TO THE WORLD Apparition Hill & Cross Mountain!


Our Lady spoke to Vicka during an apparition in Medjugorje in April, 1999, about the importance of Mary TV’s mission. At that time she told Vicka that she herself (Our Lady) would begin Mary TV! She did! But she didn’t do it alone. The generosity of her children made Mary TV a reality for her. Your generosity is needed now for it to continue!
