Meditate the mysteries of the Rosary

Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter the Apostle

Dear Family of Mary!

Today’s Gospel Reading:

When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Mt 16:13-19)

On this Feast Day of the Chair of Peter the Apostle, we ponder God’s choice of Peter as the the head of the Church. This was God the Father’s choice! He revealed it to Jesus through the answer Peter gave to His question, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered plainly, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And from then on Peter carried that very heavy burden, the call to carry the Keys of the Kingdom!!

All of this was a mystery to Peter at the time! We can only imagine how baffled Peter was. What was Jesus talking about? But as Peter followed Jesus through the Passion, Death, Resurrection and the Ascension, the mystery began to make sense. Peter learned how to follow Jesus and listen to the Holy Spirit. His life became more and more an expression of the love for Jesus, and he was able to lead his brethren into a world desperate for that love.

Our Lady wants us to follow Peter down that same path, by living the mysteries! But it is easier for us, because we have the mysteries in the Holy Rosary to guide us. Those mysteries speak to our own particular mysteries and help us to trust and follow the Holy Spirit just as Peter did.

Listen to Our Lady’s explanation:

September 25, 2019
“Dear children! Today I am calling you to pray for my intentions
so that I may help you.

Little children, pray the Rosary
and meditate the mysteries of the Rosary
because, in your life,
you are also passing through joys and sorrows.

In this way,
you are transforming the mysteries into your life,
because life is a mystery
until you place it into God’s hands.

In this way, you will have
the experience of faith
like Peter who met Jesus
and the Holy Spirit filled his heart.

Little children, you are also called to witness
by living the love with which,
day by day,
God wraps you with my presence.

Therefore, little children,
be open and pray with the heart in faith.

Thank you for having responded to my call.”

We are called to witness like Peter. And we have Our Lady with us to help us, just as St. Peter had her with him throughout the public ministry of Jesus and in in the Upper Room as well! Our Lady can help us to understand our personal mysteries, through the prayer of the Rosary. She knows just what we are going through. May we ponder the mysteries of our own lives, in the light of the mysteries of the Rosary! Let us be open and pray with the heart in faith!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world!”

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!
