April 27, 2020 Reflection – Personal Conversion

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! May this time be an incentive for personal conversion for you. Pray, little children, in solitude to the Holy Spirit to strengthen you in faith and trust in God, that you may be worthy witnesses of the love which God bestows upon you through my presence. Little children, do not permit trials to harden your heart and for prayer to be like a desert. Be a reflection of God’s love and witness the Risen Jesus by your lives. I am with you and I love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (April 25, 2020)

“Dear children! May this time be an incentive for personal conversion for you…

It is a comfort to know that Our Lady is with us in this moment in history. She is with us as we face the coronavirus pandemic. She is with us as we spend our days at home, enduring the limits of social distancing. She is with us as we work in the hospitals and medical facilities to aid the sick. She is with us as we support necessary industries and businesses. She is with those of us who are sick, and those who are dying. She is with us in this very difficult time.

She knows we are facing a world changing moment. And so, what does she advise us to do? “May this time be an incentive for personal conversion for you…” She advises us to go into prayer, go into our hearts, and use this time for our personal conversion.

Our shipmate, Tracy, asked me for a simple explanation of what conversion means. I had to think about it. And here is what I came up with:

The word convert can mean to “turn”.  It can also mean to “change”.  But I like the idea that to convert means to change direction or to make a turn causing you to go in a new direction.

“Personal conversion” then means that we come to a moment in which we change the direction of our personal life, we choose a new destination, we adjust our sights and we decide to aim at something better.  We convert in our hearts, meaning that what we love has changed.  We long for something new.

So you can see that “personal conversion” would have to do with deciding to change the aim of one’s life, while letting go of some things we have been aiming at, desiring, working towards, or following.

And of course we know that Our Lady wants us to adjust our sights so that we are clearly focused on Jesus, with the desire to be totally consecrated to Him, living for Him, loving Him, and desiring eternal life with Him. This entails letting go of worldly goals, temporal profit, and yes, sin. Anything that distances us from Jesus must be left behind.

This is an opportunity to re-calibrate our lives. We can evaluate our choices to be sure they are leading us to Christ. We have the time right now. We have the solitude. We have the longing in our hearts increased by the absence of the Sacraments that we so need. Now is the time!

This is a watershed moment, and we need to take stock of where we are with God, right now. We need to look at the course we have charted for our lives and decide if our goals and our desires are the best ones for our souls now. Where are we going, if we stay the course we have been on? And where should we be going?

May Our Lady guide us as we use this time as an incentive for conversion. May she be our spiritual director. May her mantle be over us, and her love surround us as we convert, choosing Christ as our all in all.

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!
