April 18, 2023 Reflection – You must be born from above…

You must be born from above…


April 18, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!

From the Gospel for today:
Jesus said to Nicodemus: “‘You must be born from above.’ The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (John 3:7b-8)

I find it interesting that the Church chose to repeat the last lines of the Gospel for Monday, April 17, 2023 as the first lines in the Gospel for Tuesday, April 18, 2023. It makes sense to me! Why? Because actually this saying from Jesus is difficult and so important.

Jesus is describing for us something that in quite intangible. What can He possibly mean by saying we must be born from above? In yesterday’s Gospel Jesus told Nicodemus “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless one is born of water and Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. What is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of spirit is spirit.” It seems that Jesus is trying to bust open Nicodemus’ way of thinking about reality. Jesus wanted Nicodemus to realize that we are not just flesh. We are flesh and spirit – we have bodies and spirits. And our spirits connect us with God, with His Spirit, with Heaven, with that which is above! We are body and spirit, and we must live that reality.

In fact Jesus came down from above, assuming His body from the Virgin Mary, so that He could reveal our dual nature to us and show us our true homeland, which is above. He wants us to follow Him into life, and to do that we must be born of the Spirit! We must awaken our souls/spirits and seek the things above.

Well, It sounds like a riddle, but if we ponder Jesus’ life, it makes perfect sense. Jesus came from Heaven to show us the things that are above. Only with that reality can we understand why we live, why we must love, what we must do! We need the Holy Spirit to fill us and guide us! God’s Holy Spirit can speak to our souls, our spirits in ways that will blow our minds!! Pure love!!!

Our Lady told us:

May 25, 2017
“Dear children!
The Most High has permitted me
to call you anew to conversion.

Little children,
open your hearts to the grace
to which you are all called.

Be witnesses of peace and love
in this peaceless world.

Your life here on earth is passing.

Pray that through prayer
you may yearn for Heaven
and the things of Heaven
and your hearts will see everything differently.

You are not alone;
I am with you
and intercede before my Son Jesus for you.

Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Once we are born from above, once we receive the Holy Spirit, we will see everything differently. We will yearn for Heaven and the things of Heaven. And we will long to help others to see everything differently as well. We will long for them to yearn for Heaven with us!

God bless you and keep you!!

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!
