Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for peace: peace in human hearts, peace in the families and peace in the world. Satan is strong and wants to turn all of you against God, and to return you to everything that is human, and to destroy in the heart all feelings towards God and the things of God. You, little children, pray and fight against materialism, modernism and egoism, which the world offers to you. Little children, you decide for holiness and I, with my Son Jesus, intercede for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”(January 25, 2017)

Last week we discussed this challenging message together, by investigating the three “isms”, materialism, modernism and egoism. Our shipmate, Reuben, sent us a great synthesis of our discussion! I share it with you today with joy!

Dear Cathy,

Thank you so much for your beautiful reflections on our enemies – modernism, materialism, and egoism. They have stirred some thoughts within me.

I think we are reaching a key and maybe decisive point of the battle between a culture of life and a culture of death. I think the greatest threat to peace within our hearts, families, and the world, is abortion and all the culture of death associated with it. This is what Saint Theresa of Calcutta said, since if a mother can think it a freedom to kill her child, what peace is possible? That got me to thinking about the enemies of modernism, materialism and egoism: how by the first, we can’t even decide on what constitutes human life, and by the second, we can’t see human life as having a soul in the image and likeness of God, such that by the third, in egoism, we easily choose the death of weak babies over powerful adults. What a triple cord of dishonesty these three perversions of human thought are!

I was thinking about how to battle them. I was feeling rather surrounded and overwhelmed by them. We are all culpable, and caught up in some way, yet mustn’t lose hope. That’s it! It’s hope, that’s what our Lady brings us in such abundance! In fact, she brings us her own living embodiment of all three theological virtues. By her faith, she destroys modernism. Faith knows God, even when God is invisible, while modernism barely knows even the things it can see. By Mary’s hope, she and we can destroy materialism. Materialism has no hope, since eventually, all the matter in the world and universe simply dies away and cannot mean anything without spirit. By Mary’s love, she and we can destroy egoism. Love is the deepest meaning and source of all things, and must, by necessity, die to its own agenda of mind and heart.

Mary’s presence is the destroyer of heresies. Our adhering to her is our sharing in that destruction. We are now what the church has prepared: her lay soldiers, in Mary’s army, to crush the lie. Life is God’s, and God’s life has meaning, order, beauty and a destiny in heaven. The poor world is parched, and barely even knows its own thirst to drink from this well-spring of the Woman who listens, asks, ponders and keeps the simple and victorious truth of God’s existence., I think the enlightenment is expiring. I think the light of all men is about to shine brightly once more.

Blessings on us all, Reuben

Thank you, Reuben!! That’s it! Hope! Didn’t Our Lady tell us in the February 2 message exactly that?

” …Therefore, you, apostles of my love, pray with the heart and with your works show the love of my Son. This is the only hope for you, and this is also the only way to eternal life. I, as a mother, I am here with you. Your prayers directed to me are the most beautiful roses of love for me. I cannot but be where I sense the scent of roses. There is hope. Thank you.” (February 2, 2017)

As Reuben exclaimed when he read the Feb.2 message: “And then Our Lady’s message – “there is hope” – it’s really a conversation between us all, isn’t it?!  How blessed we are…”

How blessed we are!! Indeed. The love of Jesus is the antidote to all the “isms” in the world. Jesus himself is the cure for all “isms” which try to draw us away from our call as men and women of God. But there is hope, because Our Lady and Jesus are with us to lead us into the Kingdom.

Peace, everyone! There is hope!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

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!
