My Son, by his sacrifice, exalted love!

St. John of the Cross

Dear Family of Mary!

“…My Son, by His sacrifice, exalted love. Therefore, live with Him so that you may have strength and hope; that you may have the love which is life and which leads to eternal life. Through God’s love, I am also with you, and will lead you with motherly love. Thank you.” (December 2, 2016)

It might be easy to overlook these last words of the December 2 message. But they are dynamite!

“My Son, by His sacrifice, exalted love.”

Jesus, dying on the Cross, revealed to the world a kind of love that surpasses all loves. It is a love that has no self-interest. A love that chooses the beloved over its own life. It is a love that offers everything for the beloved. A love that knows no bounds, no limits, no requirements. It is a love freely given, no strings attached.

Jesus, raised up on the Cross, taught a sermon on love that will never be equaled. He forgave and made excuses for his murderers, welcomed a thief into His Kingdom, accepted total abandonment as His lot, thirsted for souls, and gave us His own Mother to be our Mother. He gave away everything for us. And in His total annihilation saved us from eternal damnation. He rescued us all by His exalted love.

Jesus taught us what love really is. If we live with Him now, we will learn that kind of love, and it will be our strength and hope. It will lead us to life! We will be able to endure all things for love of Him. Because He first loved us, we will know what it is like to be truly loved. And we will be so happy.

Our Lady, having been given to us by Jesus on the Cross, now lives out her motherly role in our lives, by leading us to her Son. She is with us to lead us. So we are not alone. She will help us to imitate the exalted love of Jesus.

Today is the Memorial of St. John of the Cross, the saint of love. He wrote many things about His love for Jesus that are obscure, difficult, and incredibly strong. Here is a quote that Denis loves to share:

“Disinterested love for God; love freely given to God in prayer is of the greatest benefit to the Church and what she needs most.  One act of pure love profits the Church more than all the good works in the world.”  St. john of the Cross

St. John knows about disinterested love, about love freely given back to God for all He has done for us. He knows the grace for good that is discovered in this love. Our Lady wants us to discover this love too, and to live in it. It will guide us to heaven.

St. John of the Cross, pray for us. Mary, Mother of Jesus, pray for us!

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!
