Our Lady of Guadalupe

Dear Family of Mary!
(I am re-sharing this reflection, originally posted on December 12, 2013!!) 

Today is the beautiful feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. She is the patroness of the Americas. She appeared to Juan Diego, a peasant in Mexico, in 1531, and through this simple man she revealed her presence and love to the people of Mexico, great and small. Her image on the Tilma of St. Juan Diego has survived to this day, a true miracle which testifies to her apparitions to him, and her gift of grace and conversion to the people of the Americas.What has always touched me about Our Lady’s apparitions to Juan Diego is the tenderness with which she related to him. She was so loving, humble, gentle and patient with Juan Diego. Her famous words of comfort to him when his uncle was ill have stayed with me. Here they are:

With a look of great love, Mary smiled at him and gently chided him for his doubts, “”Do not let anything afflict you, and do not be afraid of any illness, or accident, or pain. Am I not here who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Do you need anything else?”

(Quoted from: http://thomasfortoday.blogspot.com/2013/03/am-i-not-your-mother-our-lady-of.html  )

Do not be afraid…Am I not here who am your Mother?…Are you not under my shadow and protection?….Do you need anything else?…  These words are full of comfort and peace. This is Our Mother! She has spoken similar words to the visionaries of Medjugorje. Here are a few examples:

Thursday, March 4, 1982

...Be patient, my angels, do not be afraid of anything.I am at your side and guard you. If you have any problems, whatever it be, call me. I will come immediately and help you in advising you on best resolving the difficulty. Go in peace, my angels. Goodbye.”

April 25, 1998 “Dear children! Today I call you, through prayer, to open yourselves to God as a flower opens itself to the rays of the morning sun. Little children, do not be afraid. I am with you and I intercede before God for each of you so that your heart receives the gift of conversion. Only in this way, little children, will you comprehend the importance of grace in these times and God will become nearer to you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

June 2, 2007 “Dear children! Also in this difficult time God’s love sends me to you. My children, do not be afraid, I am with you. With complete trust give me your hearts, that I may help you to recognize the signs of the time in which you live. I will help you to come to know the love of my Son. I will triumph through you. Thank you.”

January 2, 2010 “Dear children, Today I am calling you to, with complete trust and love, set out with me because I desire to acquaint you with my Son. Do not be afraid, my children, I am here with you; I am next to you. I am showing you the way to forgive yourselves, to forgive others, and, with sincere repentance of heart, to kneel before the Father. Make everything die in you that hinders you from loving and saving, that you may be with Him and in Him. Decide for a new beginning, a beginning of sincere love of God Himself. Thank you.”

Our Lady has consistently demonstrated her motherly presence and solicitude for almost 33 years. (38 years now!!) Do we need anything else???

Also, when we live in this trusting and intimate way with Our Lady, we become like Juan Diego, we become carriers of her presence to others. As Denis said to us today during the Daily Rosary, we become the tilma! We are living proof of Our Lady’s presence and love, because she shines on our faces.

Our shipmate on the digital sea, Reuben, said it this way:

I just feel so privileged to be here; to see us all become the tilma! This is real, real as the rose Mary sent my family on the first day of this advent, real as all the angelic hosannas of every Eucharist, real as Mary’s presence in Medjugorje, and real as the communion of saints we gather into our great boat of prayer! Praise be!! I want to be closer to Jesus, I want the spirit poured into me, but I can’t do it without Mary’s immaculate mold. She gives it freely, she comes to do so!!


We become the tilma together as we pray in response to her call and live her messages! So, like St. Juan Diego, may we proceed without fear, knowing that Our Mother is with us and we are under her protection and care.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. The rose Reuben mentions was a supernatural gift given to his mother in law the other day. Here is the story:

Dear Cathy,

I have attached a picture of a present left on my mother-in-law’s kitchen table during this first Sunday in Advent. The house was locked and no one has a key, and while we were all out doing our separate things, a perfect white rose was left for our return. My mother in law has been struggling to nourish her faith after the passing of her husband. Her husband was on earth a faithful Irish man with a great love for the rosary. What a joyful look was on my wife and my mother-in-law’s faces, and what a joyful start to our Advent. I want to share it with you all at Mary TV because it was not possible for me to pray with you on the digital sea over these last few days, and so you were all very acutely present in my own personal Rosary during the hours preceding such a precious gift…Ave!

Here is the Rose!




Thank you, Reuben, for sharing this gift from heaven for your family!!!

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!
