December 5, 2023 Reflection – Prepare yourselves with joy!!!

Prepare yourselves with joy!


December 5, 2023

Dear Family of Mary!

In our message for today, Our Lady calls us to prepare with joy for the coming of Baby Jesus through renewed prayer in our families. I had never thought of joy being a way to prepare for Jesus’ coming! But it must be!!

Here is the message:

November 25, 2009 
“Dear children!

In this time of grace
I call you all
to renew prayer in your families.

Prepare yourselves with joy for the coming of Jesus.

Little children,
may your hearts be pure and pleasing,
so that love and warmth may flow through you
into every heart that is far from His love.

Little children,
be my extended hands,
hands of love
for all those who have become lost,
who have no more faith and hope.

Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Just as fasting and penance are necessary for our spiritual lives, so too is joy! When we enter into joy, we enter into the very heart of God, for He is only Light, only Happiness, only Truth, and totally Love! The only response to these awesome realities is Joy! Joy spills out of God’s heart into our hearts when we draw close to Him and worship Him in all His Mighty Glory. Joy is the way of life in Heaven.

And so, Our Lady calls us to prepare for the coming of Her Son with Joy!! But how can we help our families to enter into prayer with joy? Many of our family members today do not talk about God and they are reticent to even pray the simplest prayers. But we can still lovingly work on their conversion, through our example, and our conversations with them and through the deep joy we carry in our hearts because of God. Our prayers with them can communicate that joy!

Even the smallest prayer can open a closed heart. The Holy Spirit can do miracles through just such prayers. He quietly enters and speaks to those hearts, confirming the prayer that was prayed. We are not alone when we pray for and with our families. God joins in!

Our Lady wants our Advent to be a time of joy in the Spirit! If our hearts are “pure and pleasing” then the love of God will flow through us to our families, and then into the world.

Oh, come Holy Spirit and help us to become pure and pleasing, to be extended hands of love for those who are lost and have no faith or hope. May we renew our prayer and pray with our families until joy rules in our hearts, our families and the world!

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

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!
