“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that wide circles of American Society, or wide circles of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God’s Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church takes up, and faces courageously…” Saint John Paul ll (1976 – Philadelphia Eucharistic Congress)

Dear Mary TV Shipmates,
Five years after addressing the Philadelphia Eucharistic Congress with the words above, Our Lady started coming to Medjugorje, prompting St. John Paul ll to recognize: “Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world.”
It could be said the Holy Father saw Our Lady’s coming to Medjugorje as “the ace up the sleeve” of the Father for these times!
When on November 11, 2013 the Papal Nuncio to the US quoted those same words (at top) to the USCCB meeting in Baltimore, he said the Holy Father’s words were “profoundly prophetic” because they were inspired by St. Faustina and Divine Mercy! St. John Paul the Great, the Spark from Poland that was sent to prepare the world for Jesus’ final coming, believed Divine Mercy to be the Church’s most important mission today. It is, he said, “a gift of God for our time!”
Divine Mercy through St, Faustina could be considered “the ace up the other sleeve” of the Father for these times!The spiritual center of the world, and the Church’s most important mission in the world, cannot be separated!
During his homily in St. James Church in Medjugorje at the beginning of this year the Papal Nuncio to Bosnia and Hercegovina said: “How can Mary be the Queen of Peace without being at the same time, Queen of Divine Mercy? We are here in the temple of the Queen of Peace raised in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Mary is the Queen of Peace because she is the Queen of God’s Mercy, whose face is Jesus!”
Spread the video below to family and friends – spread it everywhere – before April 19th, Divine Mercy Sunday! Let’s do this for Our Lady!
Thank you and God bless you!
