Mary became the Lord’s dwelling place!


August 9, 2023

Dear Family of Mary!

Day 2 of our preparation for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary! Mr. Perna chose the following quote from Pope Benedict XVI as #2:

2. “St Augustine says: “Before conceiving the Lord in her body she had already conceived him in her soul”. She had made room for the Lord in her soul and thus really became the true Temple where God made himself incarnate, where he became present on this earth.

Thus, being God’s dwelling place on earth, in her the eternal dwelling place has already been prepared, it has already been prepared for ever.

And this constitutes the whole content of the Dogma of the Assumption of Mary, body and soul, into heavenly glory, expressed here in these words.

Mary is “blessed” because – totally, in body and soul and for ever – she became the Lord’s dwelling place.

If this is true, Mary does not merely invite our admiration and veneration, but she guides us, shows us the way of life, shows us how we can become blessed, how to find the path of happiness.” (Pope Benedict XVI)

Our Lady is so much more than we can probably ever understand! But Pope Benedict nailed it here! Our Lady, in her purity and total love for God made a place for God to dwell in her very person, freely given. She prepared her heart and soul for the Lord to enter in, and He did! We were saved by the Incarnation, which Mary anticipated by her love for God! She is the dwelling place of God, the Tabernacle of the Most High! It is more than we can ever understand!

Here are amazing words of wisdom from Our Lady about her role in the Incarnation of Jesus:

February 2, 2020
“Dear children,
by the act of the decision and love of God,
I am chosen to be the Mother of God
and your mother.

But also by my will
and my immeasurable love for the Heavenly Father
and my complete trust in Him,
my body was the chalice of the God-man.

I was in the service of truth, love and salvation,
as I am now among you
to call you, my children, apostles of my love,
to be carriers of truth;
to call you to spread His words,
the words of salvation,
by your will and love for my Son:
that with your actions you may show,
to all those who have not come to know my Son,
His love.

You will find strength in the Eucharist –
my Son who feeds you with His Body
and strengthens you with His Blood.

My children,
fold your hands [in prayer]
and look at the Cross in silence.

In this way, you are drawing faith to be able to transmit it;
you are drawing truth to be able to discern;
you are drawing love that you may know to love truly.

My children, apostles of my love,
fold your hands [in prayer],
look at the Cross.

Only in the Cross is salvation.
Thank you.”

Mother Mary, your Assumption into Heaven did not take you away from us, but rather opened the way for you to draw close to each one of us and mother us with your incredible love. You are here with us today. We want to draw very close to you, and to be guided by you in everything. Mother please make us presentable, and then present us to your Son, that we might live with Him and You in Heaven forever!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“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

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!
