December 3, 2019 Reflection – A Motherly Blessing!

Dear Family of Mary!

Our Lady speaks of her motherly blessing in this most recent message (December 2, 2019). She has spoken of her motherly blessing at least 64 times over these 38 years. It would be easy to pass over this special blessing that Our Lady gives to us as our mother. It just sounds nice. Mothers are nice and they wish nice things for us! That is all.

But I have been learning that a motherly blessing is much more than a nice gesture, a wish for the good of the child. It is actually very powerful. I came upon this idea through the teachings of Father Gabriele Amorth, the great exorcist of Rome, who died only recently. Fr. Amorth wrote about the powerful effect that parents and grandparents can have over their children and grandchildren, when they curse them. That’s right, when they curse them…

Fr. Amorth wrote in his book “An Exorcist Tells His Story” about the power of curses spoken by parents and grandparents in this way:

“Curses invoke evil, and the origin of all evil is demonic. When curses are spoken with true perfidy, especially if there is a blood relationship between the one who casts them and the accursed, the outcome can be terrible. The most common instances that I have encountered involved parents or grandparents who called down evil upon children or grandchildren. The most serious consequences occur when the evil wish is against someone’s life or when it is pronounced on a special occasion, such as a wedding. The authority and the bonds that tie parents to their children are stronger than any other person’s….” (Fr. Gabriele Amorth. An Exorcist Tells His Story”. P 130)

In his book, Fr. Amorth tells three instances of curses by parents or grandparents that he encountered, and which had very evil results. It is so sad to read about. But it points to something…the spiritual authority of the parent for good or ill.

Well, I tell you this, because it dawned on me that if parents and grandparents can have such devastating power over their children and grandchildren for evil, think of how much good we can do if we are instead blessing our children and grandchildren! Think of how much we can protect and heal them if we are blessing them every day and pouring out our protection upon them, as their parents and grandparents!!

That realization is what opened up for me the incredible gift we can receive from Our Lady! She is truly our Mother, given to us by Jesus from the Cross, just before His death. Her motherhood is even stronger than natural family bonds!  And she loves us so much. Think what power her Motherly blessing must have if we accept it!! She told us yesterday:

“Dear children, as I am looking at you who love my Son, my heart is being filled with tenderness. I am blessing you with a motherly blessing. With a motherly blessing, I am also blessing your shepherds – you who speak the words of my Son, who bless with His hands and who love Him so much that you are ready to make every sacrifice for Him with joy. You are following Him, who was the first shepherd, the first missionary…” (December 2, 2019)

Our Lady’s heart is filled with tenderness for us, and for our shepherds as well. Her love is overflowing for us. And she is blessing us!!! She is blessing us!!! We are being blessed with probably the most powerful blessing of a mother anyone could receive. And it comes to us because she is truly our Mother!!

Our Lady’s blessing goes out to each pilgrim who goes to Medjugorje, and to each person who responds to her call anywhere in the world! Her blessing is what gives us so much peace in Medjugorje and comes with us back home!! Her blessing heals us interiorly and makes us happy and strong.

I think we should have great confidence in Our Lady’s Motherly blessing. She has been and continues to give it to us, in abundance! This blessing is what is changing the world, one heart at a time. She brings us close to Jesus, and opens our hearts with her blessing, so that we can receive Him in faith.

We should be telling everyone we know about her blessing. All who ask for it, will receive it!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

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!
