January 7, 2021 Reflection – Children, is your heart opened towards Jesus?

“Children, is your heart open towards Jesus?


January 7, 2021
St. Raymond of Penafort

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Children, is your heart open towards Jesus? Have you completely surrendered your life into His hands? Have you accepted Jesus as your father, to whom you can always turn and in Him find consolation and everything you need to live true faith?…” (12/25/20 Jakov)

Our Lady asks us very good questions in her message through Jakov.  They are foundational questions.  She wants us to look at our relationship to Jesus and be honest with ourselves.  How open am I to Jesus?  Do I have secrets in my heart that I do not want to share with Him?  Am I afraid of Jesus?  Do I really believe He is my God?  Have I closed my heart to His presence in the Eucharist?  Have I completely surrendered my life to Jesus, given it into His hands?  Do I hold on to certain habits or desires that Jesus would like me to change?  Am I stubborn?  Am I lazy?  What keeps me from surrendering to Jesus? And do I believe that Jesus is my father, the one I can always count on to care about me and console me, and provide for me as His little one?

Good questions.

Fr. Slavko Barbaric understood that we have to answer these questions.  In his meditations for Adoration, at St. James, he prayed so sweetly and deeply for us before Jesus.  Here is one of his prayers during Adoration:

“Be praised, my Lord, for eternity, because with Your Words You are calling me to Yourself.  You are my Lord and my master.  It is only You Who I want to serve and no-one else.  In this moment I place at Your feet all my worries and fears, my sadness, and my mistrust.  I entrust to You everything that is tormenting me.  Life is difficult when we are bound, held captive, and overwhelmed by our concerns.  But You, in your love, You offer us the freedom of birds and the beauty of lilies. Because of my worries and plans, I don not have the time for those close to me, not even for my friends.  And yet, You promised me that You would take care of me…

“Oh my God, You want me to become like a child, so that from the early morning until late at night I live joyfully with total devotion to You, without wracking my brain as to how I should continue.  Naturally, I also wonder if it is possible to live in such a carefree manner.  Yes, it’s possible because You tell me that it is, Lord Jesus.  I will certainly understand it when I reach the point when You are everything to me and my highest good.  My Jesus, How could You not be praised, not be adored!  How could I not pray to You day and night!  Therefore, My Jesus, make me understand that You are the only love, the ultimate goal of my life!”  (“Medjugorje and Fr. Slavko Barbaric” p. 259)

As we begin this new and very challenging year, may we draw ever closer to Jesus.  Mother Mary, pray for us!  Fr. Slavko, pray for us!

In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!

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!
