May prayer be life to you!

St. Vincent de Paul

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (September 25, 2016)

“Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you.”

Our Lady has urged us to prayer all these years. She has used many helpful and powerful metaphors for prayer. She wants us to pray. She wants us to understand the value of prayer. But most often we will not understand prayer unless we experience it, unless we pray.

But I thought it would be interesting to share a few of Our Lady’s attempts to describe prayer for us. In her words, she lures us to try to pray. She knows how important it is to be connected with God through prayer.

Here are some samples:

“May prayer be your daily practice.” (June 25, 2003)

“May prayer be for you like the seed that you will put in my heart, which I will give over to my Son Jesus for you, for the salvation of your souls.” (January 25, 2009)

“May prayer become a need for you to grow more in holiness every day.” (March 25, 2012)

“Prayer works miracles in you and through you, therefore, little children, may prayer be a joy for you.” (September 25, 2013)

“May prayer be for you the wings for an encounter with God.” (August 25, 2015)

“Prayer will be your joy and your rest.” (May 30, 1985)

” Only in prayer will you be near to me and my Son and you will see how short this life is. In your heart a desire for Heaven will be born. Joy will begin to rule in your heart and prayer will begin to flow like a river. In your words there will only be thanksgiving to God for having created you and the desire for holiness will become a reality for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2006)

“Little children, may prayer flow from your hearts like fresh water from a spring.” (August 25, 1999)

“Let your prayer become a sign of offering to God.” (June 13, 1984)

“…let your prayer be a sign of surrender to God.” (June 13, 1985)

“My call to you is that your prayer be the joy of an encounter with the Lord.”(August 14, 1986

“Pray, my dear little children, so prayer becomes your daily bread.” (January 25, 1992)

“Open yourselves to prayer so that prayer becomes a need for you.” (February 25, 2002)

“May your prayer be as strong as a living stone, until with your lives you become witnesses.” (January 25, 2013)

I also discovered that the most often used phase was a variation of “May prayer become a joy for you!”

Joy and prayer are almost synonymous for Our Lady. Of course, she is the one who said, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and my spirit rejoices in in God my Savior!” She lived the life of joyful prayer. And this is what she wants for us!

So, today, may we take her words to heart, and pray, pray, pray!!!!

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!
