Dear Family of Mary!

“Your life is passing and, without God, does not have meaning. This is why I am with you to lead you towards holiness of life, so that each of you may discover the joy of living…” (June 25, 2020)

Our Lady is not afraid to point out to us that our lives are passing. She tells us that frequently. I have always thought that she is quite bold. In the modern world, where many people do not believe in God or eternal life, the idea of death is quite repugnant. They spend a lot of time trying to postpone aging, in an attempt to ignore the fact that they will one day die. Look how young I look! Isn’t it amazing? And they just do not talk about death in personal terms.

But Our Lady, in her humility and holiness, did not fear death nor live as if death did not exist. She had lived the death of her Son, Jesus, at the hands of His enemies, and she had waited in silence and faith for His Resurrection. She waited in deep patience and prayer for her own death and was assumed into Heaven!! She knows that life on earth will end for every man, but that life in Heaven will never end. And so, she keeps trying to wake us up to the reality of death, the reality of this passing world, so that we will aim at the life in Heaven, through faith.

Mother knows we try to run from the reality of death. God sent her to us to wake us up! She is with us to keep the reality of our passing earthly life before our eyes because it is the truth and as an incentive for us to choose her Son and His love as our sole reality. Only by living with Jesus, living in humility and holiness, will we find the joy in living. Jesus makes everything in this passing world meaningful because each thought, word and deed done for love of Him and fidelity to the Father, will bring us closer and closer to heaven. The joy of living is the joy of living for Jesus!

She said as much in this message:

November 25, 2012 “Dear children! In this time of grace, I call all of you to renew prayer. Open yourselves to Holy Confession so that each of you may accept my call with the whole heart. I am with you and I protect you from the ruin of sin, but you must open yourselves to the way of conversion and holiness, that your heart may burn out of love for God. Give Him time and He will give Himself to you and thus, in the will of God you will discover the love and the joy of living. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

God sent Our Lady to us, at this particular time in history, to lead us to holiness of life so that we would find in that holiness the joy of living! The Father knew that we would need her help at this time, when the enemy of our souls is attempting to destroy us all. But the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is upon us to deep-six the enemy’s entire plan of destruction. Let’s stay safely under her mantle and live the joy she is bringing us. This is the battle plan from Heaven.

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

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!
