January 1, 2021 Reflection – Come Holy Spirit!

Archbishop Hoser and Cardinal Barbarin!

January 1, 2021
Feast of the Mother of God

Dear Family of Mary!

The Vigil Mass of the Mother of God was celebrated by Cardinal Phillippe Barbarin, who was visiting Medjugorje for the first time from France!  He was so warm and excited to be in Medjugorje.  And at the end of Holy Mass, Archbishop Henryk Hoser spoke a few words in welcome to the Cardinal.  His comments are beautiful!  So we have transcribed them for you today.

Arch Bishop Henryk Hoser – welcoming Cardinal Phillippe Barbarin after Vigil Mass of the Feast of the Mother of God:

Your Eminence, Cardinal Barbarin, we are at the end of the first Holy Mass of the New Year!  Thank you for your presence! You, as Cardinal, represent all the Cardinals of the Universal Church, and at the same time the Church in France.  France is called the First Daughter of the Church!  And France was evangelized 2000 years ago.  Our region here has an equally long history.  The Balkan region belonged to the Roman Empire, so the evangelization, the Word of God, came here very early on.

I would like to thank you for all of us present here: the parishioners here (there are many of them), the pilgrims who are fewer than usual due to the situation today, and all of us present here, connected by television, radio, and internet.

Our parish is in the service of our parishioners, people from this country, and from the surrounding countries, and it attracts people from all over the world.  On an annual basis, we have between 1 to 1 ½ million pilgrims who come here.  Together with you, we pray that this new year, 2021, will be the year of opening, so that all those who yearn for Medjugorje can come here.

Medjugorje is a significant place of spirituality.  Pilgrims come from far away, and here they discover an atmosphere of peace, of prayer, of adoration.  And they find their way to faith and eternal life.  Every year in Medjugorje there are numerous conversions.  Profound conversions that make people new!  In the last years, there have been born over 800 new vocations of Friars and priests.  It is a place of grace.  It is all God’s grace!

And we in a special way venerate Mary, who is the Queen of Peace, which we have spoken of before.  The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Queen of Peace, the Mother of God, Mother of the Church, leads us through life and through this world.  And she always directs us to her Son.

So we rejoice that we are together, and that we share the same hopes for the future.  We deeply believe that Jesus Christ is the Master of history.  And together with Him, we go through the stormy seas and the deserts of the life.  We wish you a happy journey, and a continuation of your mission for the good of France and all peoples of this world.  Thank you. (Welcoming words from Archbishop Hoser to Cardinal Barbarin)

The Vigil Mass for the Feast of the Mother of God was filled with joy!  Truly the Holy Spirit fell upon all present, even those of us viewing the Mass from around the world could feel the Spirit!  I believe God wants to bless us in 2021.  We only need to be open to the coming of the Holy Spirit.  He wants to bless us and give us many gifts, so that we are equipped for the days ahead.

Let us pray as this New Year begins:

Come Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, Creator blest, and in our souls take up Thy rest; come with Thy grace and heavenly aid to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.

O comforter, to Thee we cry, O heavenly gift of God Most High, O fount of life and fire of love, and sweet anointing from above.

Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts are known; Thou, finger of God’s hand we own; Thou, promise of the Father, Thou Who dost the tongue with power imbue.

Kindle our sense from above, and make our hearts o’erflow with love; with patience firm and virtue high the weakness of our flesh supply.

Far from us drive the foe we dread and grant us Thy peace instead; so shall we not, with Thee for guide, turn from the path of life aside.

Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow the Father and the Son to know; and Thee, through endless times confessed, of both the eternal Spirit blest.

Now to the Father and the Son, Who rose from death, be glory given, with Thou, O Holy Comforter, henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.

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

“Rejoice, little children, because God is merciful and loves you all with His immeasurable love and leads you to the way of salvation through my coming here!”

Our Lady of Medjugorje – June 25, 2018

“My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!”

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!
