November 25, 2022 – Message from Our Lady of Medjugorje

Dear children! The Most High has sent me to you to teach you prayer. Prayer opens hearts and gives hope, and faith is born and strengthened. Little children, with love I am calling you: return to God, because God is love and your hope. You do not have a future if you do not decide for God; and that is why I am with you to guide you to decide for conversion and life, and not for death. Thank you for having responded to my call. (November 25, 2022)

November 15, 2022 Reflection – Instruments of love…

  November 15, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! In the October 25, 2022 Our Lady asked us to “be instruments of love for all those who have not come to know the God of love.” In this message from 2019, Our Lady also calls us to be instruments of God’s love: February 2, 2019 Dear children! The love and goodness of the Heavenly Father give revelations which make faith grow, for it to be interpreted, that it may bring peace, certainty and hope. In this way, I, too, my children- through the merciful love of the Heavenly Father- always, anew, am showing you the way to my Son, to eternal salvation. But, unfortunately, many of my children do not want to hear me; many of my children are of two minds. And I-I always, in time and beyond time, magnified the Lord for all that He has done in me and through me. My Son gives Himself to you and breaks the bread with you. He speaks the words of eternal life to you so that you may carry them to everyone. And you, my children, apostles of my love, what are you afraid of when my Son is with you? Offer your souls to Him so that He can be in them and that He can make you instruments of faith, instruments of love. My children, live the Gospel, live merciful love for your neighbors, and, above all, live love for the Heavenly Father. My children, you are not united by chance. The Heavenly Father does not unite anyone by chance. My Son speaks to your souls. I speak to your heart. As a mother I am saying to you: set out with me, love one another, give witness. Do not be afraid, with your example, to defend the truth- the Word of God which is eternal and never changes. My children, whoever acts in the light of merciful love and truth is always helped by Heaven and is not alone. Apostles of my love, may you always be recognized among all others by your hiddenness, love and radiance. I am with you. Thank you. Our Lady calls us to not be afraid and to offer our souls to her Son so that He can make us instruments of faith and love! This is how to become an instrument of God’s love! To allow Jesus to live in us, and guide us in love! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c) Mary TV 2022  

October 25, 2022 – Message from Our Lady of Medjugorje

Dear children! The Most High permits me to be with you, and to be joy for you and the way in hope, because mankind has decided for death. That is why He sent me to keep instructing you that without God you do not have a future. Little children, be instruments of love for all those who have not come to know the God of love. Witness joyfully your faith and do not lose hope in a change of the human heart. I am with you and am blessing you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.

June 4, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 9

  Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 9 June 4, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 9 Our Lady prays to the Holy Spirit for us: June 25, 2002 “Dear children! Today I pray for you and with you that the Holy Spirit may help you and increase your faith, so that you may accept even more the messages that I am giving you here in this holy place. Little children, comprehend that this is a time of grace for each of you; and with me, little children, you are secure. I desire to lead you all on the way of holiness. Live my messages and put into life every word that I am giving you. May they be precious to you because they come from Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call.” In this message, Our Lady tells us she is praying for us and with us that the Holy Spirit may help us and increase our faith, so that we will be able to accept even more the messages she is giving us in Medjugorje, this holy place!! She is asking her great Spouse, the Holy Spirit, to anoint us, open our minds and increase our faith, so we can understand what she is saying to us in her messages. She needs His help and so do we!! Certainly Our Lady receives these messages from the Father and Jesus, through the Holy Spirit. She then gives them to us through her visionaries. But the process isn’t finished until we receive the messages with open hearts, anointed and ready to receive them in the power of the Holy Spirit!! Only with the help of the Holy Spirit can we accept the messages more deeply. Our Lady, the Queen of Peace, has been with us now for 40 years, giving us messages from her heart, messages of faith, hope, love, peace, joy, truth, correction and consolation. She has faithfully spoken to us through her visionaries, desiring that we become part of the great plan for the world that God has been enacting through her. Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to help us and increase our faith, so that we can accept and live Our Lady’s messages more deeply than ever before in this time of grace. The world needs Our Lady of Medjugorje, and we are her messengers, those who live her messages with the heart, who listen to the Holy Spirit and do that which He inspires us to do! Tomorrow is Pentecost!! May we receive a great outpouring of grace from the Father! Come, Holy Spirit! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” (Fount of life, fire and love!) As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting. I adore You, O uncreated and everlasting Fire, by which our souls live, by which alone they are made fit for heaven. Amen The Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit touches on all of them: O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me, that He may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love. Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal, the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Thy divine truth, the Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining Heaven, the Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with Thee, and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that oppose my salvation, the Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints, the Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable, the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God, and may dread in any way to displease Him. Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit. Amen. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c)Mary TV 2021    

June 3, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 8

Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 8 June 3, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 8 Our Lady speaks about the Spirit working in our families: April 25, 2005 “Dear children! Also today, I call you to renew prayer in your families. By prayer and the reading of Sacred Scripture, may the Holy Spirit, who will renew you, enter into your families. In this way, you will become teachers of the faith in your family. By prayer and your love, the world will set out on a better way and love will begin to rule in the world. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady tells us in this message that if we renew prayer in our families, if we read Scripture in our families, the Holy Spirit will come and will renew our families!! I have never thought of this before. It is a tremendous thing to invite the Holy Spirit into our families. What a welcome guest!! The Holy Spirit can do everything we cannot. He can transform our children, and our marriages! I remember how difficult it was to begin prayer in our family. When we first discovered Our Lady of Medjugorje, we were not praying the Rosary as a family, and family prayer was difficult. But when we began to read our Lady’s messages, family prayer began to take shape. We prayed the Holy Rosary and read Scripture. It was really hard work for Denis and me. But it did pay off. We began to see the signs of life in our children. Now, family prayer is not magic. Our children had to find each their own way with God. And it has not been easy. But I do see the Holy Spirit’s hand in their lives, and in Denis and my life as well. Family prayer is such a beautiful gift to give your spouse and your children. It is a life boat for each member of the family. It is a way of inscribing in each one’s heart that God exists and that He wants to be near them. Family prayer is a work of the Holy Spirit, bringing life and joy! Our Lady knows what she is talking about! She and Joseph and Jesus must have prayed together each day. Imagine that!! And here is her amazing promise: By prayer and your love, the world will set out on a better way and love will begin to rule in the world. Through our decision to pray, the Holy Spirit will build prayer and love in our families, and the world will set out on a better way, one family at a time. It is the only way. One family at a time! Dearest Mother, please help us to begin or strengthen our family prayer, so that the Holy Spirit will come into our family and by our prayer and love, the world will set out on a better way and love will begin to rule in the world! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” (Fount of life, fire and love!) As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection.

June 2, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 7

  Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 7 June 2, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 7 Our Lady speaks about the Spirit’s wisdom for each of us: May 25, 2001 “Dear children! At this time of grace, I call you to prayer. Little children, you work much but without God’s blessing. Bless and seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead you at this time so that you may comprehend and live in the grace of this time. Convert, little children, and kneel in the silence of your hearts. Put God in the center of your being so that, in that way, you can witness in joy the beauty that God continually gives in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady tells us that we need the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead us during the time we are living in. Why? We need to comprehend what God is doing in our day, and cooperate with Him in what He is doing!! The grace of this time is unique. God’s plan moves apace, and we can either move with it or oppose it. It is up to us! How do we discover the grace of this time? Convert, little children, and kneel in the silence of your hearts. We must convert, which is turning towards God and away from our own preoccupations. To turn towards God is only possible if we kneel – which means we recognize God is our Lord and Creator, and He alone has the way to life. Then we wait in silence, in our hearts, for the Holy Spirit to show us what the grace of our time is. Wait and pray!! That is the way to discover the grace of this time! “Put God in the center of your being so that, in that way, you can witness in joy the beauty that God continually gives in your life.” Once we have turned towards God anew, we will begin to see the grace of this time through the Holy Spirit’s inspiration! He will show us the joy and beauty that God is giving to us. This kind of sight is wisdom. Come, Holy Spirit, and help us to seek your wisdom, so that you will lead us in this time of grace! We want to convert and in the silence of our hearts, choose life! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” (Fount of life, fire and love!) As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting. I adore You, O uncreated and everlasting Fire, by which our souls live, by which alone they are made fit for heaven. Amen The Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit touches on all of them: O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me, that He may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love.

Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit. Amen. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c)Mary TV 2021 PS. Let’s continue to pray over Our Lady’s May 25, 2022 message. I believe it is very important! “Dear children! I am looking at you and thanking God for each of you, because He permits me to still be with you, to encourage you to holiness. Little children, peace is disturbed and Satan wants peacelessness. That is why, may your prayer be even stronger so that every unclean spirit of division and war may be stilled. Be builders of peace and carriers of joy of the Risen One in you and around you, for the good to win in every man. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (May 25, 2022)    

June 1, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 6

Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 6 June 1, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 6 Our Lady speaks about the Spirit’s plan for each of us: May 25, 1998 “Dear children! Today I call you, through prayer and sacrifice, to prepare yourselves for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Little children, this is a time of grace and so, again, I call you to decide for God the Creator. Allow Him to transform and change you. May your heart be prepared to listen to, and live, everything which the Holy Spirit has in His plan for each of you. Little children, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you on the way of truth and salvation towards eternal life. Thank you for having responded to my call.” In this message, Our Lady makes it very clear that we need to be led by the Holy Spirit into the plan that the Father has for each one of us. We have been created by God to be a gift! Our life is a gift to us! And who we are as a person is a gift to our families, our communities and our world. Each one of us has been given a certain array of qualities and abilities that shape how we can be a gift for others. But we have also been given free will! So it is important that we seek the plan that God has for each one of us, so that we can be that gift of love, just like Jesus was. The Holy Spirit can lead us in that process, that plan for our lives, if we ask Him to come and guide us. But we must pray, and prepare ourselves, as Our Lady says, for the Holy Spirit to speak to us about it! He will speak! He comes to dwell in our hearts, and can become our most welcome guest, the one who travels with us on the road to holiness and love. The Holy Spirit knows that plan for our lives, and He can lead us on “the way of truth and salvation towards eternal life” if we ask Him to do it! Jesus ascended so that the Holy Spirit could come and do just that! He will come to show us the plan for our life! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” (Fount of life, fire and love!) As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting. I adore You, O uncreated and everlasting Fire, by which our souls live, by which alone they are made fit for heaven. Amen The Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit touches on all of them: O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me, that He may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love.

May 31, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 5

  Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 5 May 31, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 5 Our Lady speaks about the Spirit and prayer: May 25, 2003 “Dear children! Also today I call you to prayer. Renew your personal prayer, and in a special way pray to the Holy Spirit to help you pray with the heart. I intercede for all of you, little children, and call all of you to conversion. If you convert, all those around you will also be renewed and prayer will be a joy for them. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Our Lady calls us to prayer. Prayer is one of her first priorities for us. Why? Because without prayer we can never give our lives over to God. We can never learn and live God’s will for us. We will never find peace and hope in God. Prayer should be like breathing for us. Prayer is our life source. And notice what she tells us to do: Renew your personal prayer, and in a special way pray to the Holy Spirit to help you pray with the heart. We must renew our personal prayer, which means to make a new and definite commitment to pray every day. And then, ask the Holy Spirit to teach us how to pray with the heart!! Prayer with the heart is a conversation with God. The Holy Spirit is God! He can teach us how to converse with Himself, with Jesus and with the Father. The Holy Spirit can even pray in us, with His own words as it says in Romans: “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought. But the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words.” (Romans 8:26) We want the Spirit to pray in us and through us, because He will pray for what is most necessary: “And He who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:27) Truly we need the Holy Spirit to come and pray in us!! Mother, please pray for us to receive the Holy Spirit of Prayer, that we can pray as we ought! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting.

May 30, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 4

  Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 4 May 30, 2022 Dear Family of Mary! This is Day 4 the Novena to the Holy Spirit. Today we ask for an outpouring of God’s love in our lives, through the Holy Spirit! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 4 Our Lady speaks: April 2, 2014 “Dear children, with a motherly love I desire to help you with your life of prayer and penance to be a sincere attempt at drawing closer to my Son and His divine light – that you may know how to separate yourselves from sin. Every prayer, every Mass and every fasting is an attempt at drawing closer to my Son, a reminder of His glory and a refuge from sin – it is a way to a renewed union of the good Father and His children. Therefore, my dear children, with hearts open and full of love, cry out the name of the Heavenly Father that He may illuminate you with the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit you will become a spring of God’s love. All those who do not know my Son, all those thirsting for the love and peace of my Son, will drink from this spring. Thank you. Pray for your shepherds. I pray for them and I desire that they may always feel the blessing of my motherly hands and the support of my motherly heart.” In this message Our Lady calls us to separate from the world, and live a life of prayer and penance. Why? She wants us to be free of all influences that would distract us from God and lead us to sin. And then, she wants us to cry out to the Heavenly Father, for Him to fill us with the Holy Spirit! “Father, send us your Holy Spirit!” She tells us, “Through the Holy Spirit you will become a spring of God’s love!” Of ourselves, we do not have much love to give. We are weak and vulnerable. But when the Holy Spirit fills us we become channels of God’s love, the most powerful love in the universe!! She says: “All those who do not know my Son, all those thirsting for the love and peace of my Son, will drink from this spring.” Imagine if we all became springs of living water, springs of the flowing love of God to all we meet!! Imagine how the world would change!! Mother, help us to cry out to the Heavenly Father to be illuminated by the Holy Spirit so that we can become springs of living water, the Love of God! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” (Fount of life, fire and love.) As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting. I adore You, O uncreate and everlasting Fire, by which our souls live, by which alone they are made fit for heaven. Amen The Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit touches on all of them: O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me, that He may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love.

May 29, 2022 Reflection – Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 3

Novena to the Holy Spirit Day 3 May 29, 2022 Seventh Sunday of Easter (Feast of the Ascension in some diocese)Dear Family of Mary! This is Day 3 the Novena to the Holy Spirit. It will consist of a message from Our Lady of Medjugorje, a prayer written by St. John Henry Newman, and the Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We can all include our own petitions! Let’s expect great things on Pentecost! Novena to the Holy Spirit, Day 3 April 25, 2015 “Dear children! I am with you also today to lead you to salvation. Your soul is restless because your spirit is weak and tired from all worldly things. You, little children, pray to the Holy Spirit that He may transform you and fill you with His strength of faith and hope, so that you may be firm in this battle against evil. I am with you and intercede for you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call…” In this message, Our Lady recognizes that our souls can become restless and our spirits weak and tired due to the stresses and concerns of the world. Many of those stresses are due to the activity of the evil one. Fighting him, we must cling to our hope as the answer to all his lies and temptations. Our hope will sustain us in good and in prayer. Through hope, we await the deliverance of the Lord, joyfully! In the Catechism of the Catholic Church it says: 1817 Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ’s promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit. “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” “The Holy Spirit . . . he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.” Thank you, dearest Mother, for giving us your hope, the hope that comes from Heaven in your heart! Through your hope and the power of the Holy Spirit we will grow in hope, and win every battle! The Paraclete, the Fount of Love (A prayer by St. John Henry Newman) My God, I adore You, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity, under the name and designation of Love. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And You are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. “Fons vivus, ignis, charitas.” As a fire You came down from heaven on the day of Pentecost; and as a fire You burn away the dross of sin and vanity in the heart and light up the pure flame of devotion and affection. It is You who unite heaven and earth by showing to us the glory and beauty of the Divine Nature, and making us love what is in Itself so winning and transporting. I adore You, O uncreate and everlasting Fire, by which our souls live, by which alone they are made fit for heaven. Amen The Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit touches on all of them: O Lord Jesus Christ, Who, before ascending into heaven, didst promise to send the Holy Ghost to finish Thy work in the souls of Thy Apostles and Disciples, deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me, that He may perfect in my soul the work of Thy grace and Thy love. Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal, the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Thy divine truth, the Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining Heaven, the Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with Thee, and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that oppose my salvation, the Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints, the Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable, the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God, and may dread in any way to displease Him. Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Thy true disciples and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit. Amen. In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c)Mary TV 2021 P.S. Again this month, we have received the English translation of the conversation between Marija and Fr. Livio, about the message! Here is the link to the conversation on Mary TV’s Website: https://marytv.tv/may-25-2022-marija-speaks-to-fr-livio-about-our-ladys-message/ PPS. Let’s continue to pray over Our Lady’s May 25, 2022 message. I believe it is very important! “Dear children! I am looking at you and thanking God for each of you, because He permits me to still be with you, to encourage you to holiness. Little children, peace is disturbed and Satan wants peacelessness. That is why, may your prayer be even stronger so that every unclean spirit of division and war may be stilled. Be builders of peace and carriers of joy of the Risen One in you and around you, for the good to win in every man. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (May 25, 2022)
