Today is the Feast Day of St. Louis de Montfort. St. Louis loved Our Lady and grew to understand the importance of her role in salvation history. He believed that in the last days, Our Lady would be raised up by God to bring in the return of Christ. He wrote the book, “True Devotion to Mary” to share his prophetic insight into Our Lady’s role. I believe that we are now in that time, the age of Mary, in which she has come to crush the head of Satan.
In his 1987 encyclical Redemptoris Mater, St. John Paul ll asked everyone to read St. Louis de Montfort’s book, “True Devotion to Mary”, in order to understand the importance of Mary in this age. Twice he made that request! The book had been instrumental in giving St. John Paul ll, the “Spark from Poland” sent to prepare the world for Jesus final coming, his own relationship with Mary!
The next day we discovered that Our Lady was telling us who the predestinate are…It’s us! The apostles of Our Lady of Medjugorje. Simply because we are chosen! Listen to her words to us in this important message:
“Dear children, I am continuously among you because, with my endless love, I desire to show you the door of Heaven. I desire to tell you how it is opened: through goodness, mercy, love and peace – through my Son. Therefore, my children, do not waste time on vanities. Only knowledge of the love of my Son can save you. Through that salvific love and the Holy Spirit, He chose me and I, together with Him, am choosing you to be apostles of His love and will. My children, great is the responsibility upon you. I desire that by your example you help sinners regain their sight, enrich their poor souls and bring them back into my embrace. Therefore, pray, pray, fast and confess regularly. If receiving my Son in the Eucharist is the center of your life then do not be afraid, you can do everything. I am with you. Every day I pray for the shepherds and I expect the same of you. Because, my children, without their guidance and strengthening through their blessing, you cannot do it. Thank you.” (06/02/2012)
Here is another message in which she explained our role in her plan: “God has chosen each one of you in order to use you for the great plan of salvation of mankind. You cannot comprehend how great your role is in God’s plan. Pray, dear children, so that through prayer you can comprehend God’s plan through you. I am with you so that you can realize it completely!” (01/ 25/ 1987)
Due to the pandemic, Medjugorje found itself without pilgrims all spring. But because of your support, Mary TV was ready to bring Medjugorje to the pilgrims, in a dramatic and beautiful way. We were able to continue our programing, and we were in place to help the parish of Medjugorje capture and stream the Masses and Rosaries, the Adoration and Healing Prayer from the Church to several internet outlets.
And with our help, the parish just announced that the number of people connected with Medjugorje in prayer has never been greater! They announced: “On TV the evening program of prayer from Medjugorje’s church, St. James, through Live Stream service was broadcast and followed by 3,877,377 individual IP addresses – the exact number of faithful is very hard to be estimated.” How happy we are to help St. James Parish reach pilgrims from around the world!!
Our Lady must also be grateful. Every time I made an appeal in order to upgrade and advance technology you responded! And so, we were in place just in time to help the parish. (It’s Mary TV’s camera in the Church that has been filming the Masses and evening programs of prayer. And Mary TV’s advanced communication technologies are sending the parish’s stream to their YouTube and Facebook pages.)
You might note again that in my March 9th Update I mention that people in thousands of cities throughout the world are connected to Medjugorje through Mary TV: https://marytv.tv/march-9-2020-update-from-denis-meeting-todays-challenges/
And Mary TV’s Internet Medjugorje TV channel continues airing in High Definition – 24/7 – on our website, and is also available on Amazon Firestick, Roku and Apple TV.
God bless you!
