This is a time of awakening

St. Thomas Aquinas

Dear Family of Mary!

“…This is a time of awakening…” (01/25/21)

Our Lady tells us that this is a time of awakening.  We might wonder what she means by this.  My first thought was of winter.  Where I live it is very cold these days.  There are inches of snow on the ground.  Nature is not ready to awaken.  Nothing is going to bud or grow yet.  So it isn’t yet the time for nature to awaken.

Then my thoughts went to a different kind of awakening.  Could this be a time for souls to awaken?  We have been living through a very long winter in terms of our societies and the faith.  In every way, faith in God has been attacked.  For many years there has been a decline in belief and a rise in atheism.  We have seen the Christian culture decimated.  Could it be that this is a time to awakening to the reality of God?  Could it be that the Lord is going to do something to drive away the winter of our unbelief and bring the springtime of hope?

When Our Lady tells us “this is a time of awakening”, it seems that she is announcing the grace of awakening.  She is not hopefully suggesting that it is the time of awakening.  She is announcing that God is sending the grace of awakening.  So the grace is there for souls to be awakened.  The grace is being poured out for souls to awake from their sleep and open to Jesus.  The grace of conversion is flowing.  The grace of a new faith is present, waiting to be accepted.

In the Letter to the Ephesians, St. Paul wrote:

Therefore it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead,
and Christ shall give you light.”  Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil. (Eph 5:14-16)

Maybe the grace of awakening has to do with finally realizing that God is God, and that we are not.  Maybe awakening has to do with allowing Christ to enter into our lives now as our Lord and Savior, so that He can call us out of the darkness of sin and into His Holy Light!  Maybe awakening has to do with glimpsing Heaven, Hell and Purgatory, and realizing that we have eternal souls that will live in one of those three places.  Maybe we need to be awakened to reality!!  God is God!  He made us and is calling us to Himself.

Well, the good news is that if we are awakened by God, it will be to the truth.  And the truth will set us free.

Let’s allow Our Lady to pray with us for the grace of awakening, for the grace of being raised to life by Christ.  And let’s pray for that grace for all of our brothers and sisters all over the world.

“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light!”

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

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!
