August 2, 2021 Reflection – Medjugorje Youth Festival, Day 2

Day 1 of the Youth Festival, 2021 – From the Air!!

August 2, 2021
Day 2 of the Youth Festival 2021

Dear Family of Mary!

The Youth Festival began yesterday evening, with the prayer of the Rosary, and then the Solemn welcoming of all the nations represented at the festival. As always it was an inspiring moment to see all those flags presented to us. So many countries gathered together!!

Then Archbishop Luigi Pezzuto, the Apostolic Nuncio for Bosnia/Hercegovina, delivered a letter from Pope Francis, blessing the gathering and encouraging us to prayer and holiness. It was inspiring!

Then Holy Mass was celebrated by Cardinal Sarah! The Cardinal spoke much about our call as Catholics, and the plight of our world today, with paganism growing and so little strength left in the Church. He called on us to run to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, our only hope and our source of life. He concluded with these moving words:

“We remember from the Gospels the words that Jesus spoke at the Institution of the Eucharist on Holy Thursday, “This is my Body, this is my Blood.” And we priests, who are the other Christs, we repeat these words, ‘This is my body, this is my blood.’

“And we adopt the teachings of the Church Fathers, especially St. Cyril of Alexandria, who expressed this about the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. ‘The Body of the Lord is life-giving. It is the Body of the Word of God the Father. It comes to purify me. it comes to edify me. I become that which I have received.’

“And now we know what was the great trial of the dark night of faith that St. Teresa of Calcutta underwent for 50 years. She always believed, but she was completely deprived of any consolation. Before the exposed Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, it was difficult for her to pray. She experienced dryness like so many saints before her, i.e. St. Theresa of Avila, St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, to name just a few.

“Some would ask Mother Teresa, ‘How can you love these excluded and abandoned people whose bodies are so disfigured?’ And her answer was, ‘Thanks to the Holy Eucharist, namely daily Holy Communion and Adoration.’

“Dear brothers and sisters, with the help of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mediatrix of all graces, who gave her Son to the world, when on the day of the Annunciation she gave her fiat, ‘Let it be done to me…’ let us work courageously for God’s work, seeking first of all and most of all for His Kingdom. Let us trust in Him. Let us be assured that everything else, namely His grace and eternal happiness will be granted to us besides.

“I humbly implore you, let us approach the Sacred Eucharist, let us receive the Sacred Eucharist, and let us love Him in silence in Adoration. May Our Lady of Medjugorje convert us, and help us to do God’s work, and may she bless us all, Amen!”

Cardinal Sarah rightly focused on our relationship to Jesus, present among us in the Eucharist, as our only hope of winning the battle for souls in our day. Only Jesus can give us the wisdom and strength to live a holy life full of joy and hope, like Mother Teresa did. And he called on Our Lady of Medjugorje to help us!!! This was a moment of intense joy for us all. Yes, Our Lady of Medjugorje! She will help us to know, love and serve her Son in the Blessed Sacrament!

“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 of Medjugorje – November 2, 2014

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!
