Feast Day of St. Teresa of Calcutta

St. Teresa of Calcutta
Dear Family of Mary!
“…My children, in your earthly life, be led by my example. My life was pain, silence and immeasurable faith and trust in the Heavenly Father. Nothing is by chance: neither pain, nor joy, nor suffering, nor love. All of these are graces which my Son grants to you and which lead you to eternal life. Of you, my Son asks for love and prayer in Him. As a mother I will teach you: to love and to pray in Him means to pray in the silence of your soul and not only reciting with your lips; it is even the least beautiful gesture done in the name of my Son – it is patience, mercy, the acceptance of pain and sacrifice done for the sake of another.” (September 2, 2016)
Yesterday Mother Teresa of Calcutta was canonized a saint! What a joy for us all! We can freely call upon her for intercession and aid! She will be busier now than she was on earth (if that is possible, knowing how much she poured herself out for us all when she was with us). Today we can ask her to pray for us, and for our loved ones and all who need heavenly aid.
In honor of Mother Teresa’s canonization, Mary TV was able to show a talk that she gave at the Priest’s retreat in Rome in 1990. You can watch it on the Mary TV Channel.
It strikes me that Our Lady’s words in her most recent message really carry the essence of St. Teresa of Calcutta’s spiritual way. Reread the excerpt above, and you will find Mother Teresa in these words!
And for her part, St. Teresa of Calcutta understood Our Lady. She talks about her with great insight. Because Mother Teresa was so in love with Jesus, she had to know His Mother well! Here are a couple of quotes from Mother about our relationship with Mary. Indeed, Our Lady can lead us by her example. She has walked our walk. She knows pain, silence and immeasurable faith and trust! She knows how to surrender to the Heavenly Father in all things.
St. Teresa of Calcutta wrote to her sisters:
10 August 1971
My Dearest Children,
…May our Mother be a mother to each one of us and so the cause of our joy. And may each one of us be Jesus to her and so become the cause of her joy. No one learned the lesson of humility as well as Mary did. She was the handmaiden. To be a handmaiden is to be at someone’s disposal – to be used according to someone’s wish – with full trust and joy. Cheerfulness and joy were Our Lady’s strength. Only joy could have given her the strength to go in haste over the hills of Judea to do the work of handmaiden to her cousin. So let us go in haste over the hills of difficulties…
Mother House
28 June 1972
Dearest Children,
Let us ask the Sacred Heart for one very special grace: love for Our Lady. Ask Him to give and deepen our love and make it more personal and intimate for her;
To love her as He loved her.
To be a cause of joy to her ash He was.
To Keep close to her as He kept.
To share with her everything, even the cross.
 Each one of us has our cross to bear, for this is the sign that we are His. Therefore, we need her to share it with us…
 …Holiness is not a luxury but a simple duty for you and me. Very great holiness becomes very simple if we belong fully to Our Lady…
 …I am sure each one of us has much to thank God;
For all the tiring journeys we have made by road, by drain, by plane, by cycle in search of souls.
For all the joy we have tried to spread throughout the world.
For letting us give Our Lady full liberty to use us.
(From Mother Teresa of Calcutta. “The Love of Christ – Spiritual Counsels” 1982)
Our Lady’s words are echoed in these brief quotes. Both women were at heart mothers! Each one calls us “Dear Children”! Each one recognizes the trials of life, but accepts them as the way to love Jesus and to do His will. Each one is present to us now, as they are in heaven interceding for us and loving us.
Mother Teresa truly understood how important it is to love Our Lady. Please, St. Teresa of Calcutta, help us to grow in our love for Mother Mary. Help us to thank the Father for her presence among us in these days. Mother Teresa, 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

“My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!”

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!
