August 3, 2022 Reflection – The 33rd Youth Festival in Medjugorje, Day 3

Pilgrims on Apparitions Hill on Day 2 in deep prayer with Jesus!!
33rd Youth Festival in Medjugorje Day 3!

August 3, 2022

Dear Family of Mary!

Day 2 of the Youth Festival is over, and it was a day of so many graces! The young people climbed Apparition Hill to pray the Rosary and offer this week of prayer and reflection to Our Mother, asking for her guidance and protection! The picture above is of several pilgrims in deep prayer with Jesus on the Cross on Apparition Hill.

The Morning Session was filled with wonderful talks and witnesses. The one that impressed me deeply was the testimony of Bishop Jan Sobilo from Ukraine. You don’t want to miss his humble and deeply faith-filled sharing.

The Second Session began with a moving testimony by Davide Colono and proceeded with the Rosary, Holy Mass, and a procession with the Statue of Our Lady lovingly carried throughout the crowd!! Adoration ended the day. And no one wanted to leave! They sang and danced with such joy and vigor!

The Homily for the Evening Mass was very moving, given by Fr. Massimo Fussarelli, OFM, Franciscan Minister General. I have recorded his opening remarks, as they register the awe and wonder of the Youth Festival. Only Our Lady could create such worship, love and joy! Here are his remarks:

Dear Brothers and Sisters and especially you young people in this place, May the Lord grant you His peace. It was a joy and surprise that I received an invitation to be here with you today from His Excellency, Monsignor Aldo Cavalli, whom I greet with brotherly affection.

I could not imagine without seeing with my own eyes, such a spectacle of a multitude of faith and prayer. This is a sign that the Lord Jesus still knows how to attract young people and call them into an encounter with Him, to faith and to follow Him with their whole life.

Dear young persons, who are filled with anticipation for the future, even at this time which seems to be stealing our future. Today is not just any day, but August 2nd, the day on which we Franciscans, together with the entire Church, humbly ask for and receive Assisi’s forgiveness. Our Lady of the Angels welcomed St. Francis at the Portiuncula and still today welcomes the faithful even at this Franciscan Church. The Virgin Mary welcomes all of us, especially you young people who are still seeking rest and the true consolation of peace. (Excerpt from the homily given on August 2, 2022 at the 33rd Youth Festival in Medjugorje by Fr. Massimo Fussarelli, OFM)

Well this day was filled with so much grace. I can’t wait for tomorrow. You can find all the sessions on the home page in the archive entitled “Youth Festival 2022)

“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!
