January 29, 2021 Reflection – Blessed are those servants…


Blessed are those servants…

January 29, 2021

Dear Family of Mary!

Let us consider again this line from the January 25, 2021 message:

“…This is a time of awakening…”

There is something very important about being awake in terms of the spiritual life.  Jesus talked about how important it was for servants to be found awake upon the return of their master.  But I never quite got the point, until yesterday when we discussed the words of Our Lady.  All of a sudden, I realized that being awake or awakened was not just a matter of staying up late to do my duties.  No, being awake was a state of soul in which I lived in the waking awareness of the truth about God!  Being awake is living in the reality that God is God and that we are His creatures, and that there is nothing that is separate from God.  Everything about my life is from God, for God and returning back to God.  I cannot live as if God does not exist.

Listen to these words of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke.  Jesus talks about the importance of staying “awake” until the Master returns.  Think about the deeper meaning of being awake – that awareness that God is real, that Jesus is God, that your life is totally gift from Him and that you only have meaning in terms of Jesus and His love.  Think of being awake in terms of this meaning:

Luke 12:32-38

“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  Sell your possessions and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

“Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the marriage feast, so that they may open to him at once when he comes and knocks.

“Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them. If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants!  (Lk 12:32-38)

Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes!!!!  We want to be those servants who are “awake” when Jesus returns.  This means that our souls are completely awakened to the reality of our God.  Our souls are opened and ready for the Lord to come to us, because we can’t live without Him.  The doors of our hearts are ready to open to the Lord, no matter when He comes, so that He can enter in and make His home in us.  This means we are awakened to faith, hope and love.  We live in the total awareness of our God, in the day and in the night!

This is a time of awakening.  We must be awakened in faith, living a totally converted life.  And we also must live in such a way that those around us will be awakened in faith as well.  God is giving us this time to awaken completely to His love, so we will be ready when He comes.

“Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes; truly, I say to you, he will gird himself and have them sit at table, and he will come and serve them. If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those servants!”

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_with_Sun

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!

ASK JESUS IF HE’D LIKE YOU TO START SENDING A MONTHLY DONATION TO MARY TV.
TO CONTINUE SAILING WITH OUR LADY UPON THE DIGITAL SEA THIS BOAT NEEDS FINANCIAL HELP.

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!
