Our Father…

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

Dear Family of Mary!

As tensions seem to be rising in our country, the USA, I have been having a difficult time maintaining my peace and hope. The Coronavirus may have changed the way we live, at least for a time, but there are other things that are changing which could have very bad consequences for us. Violence is escalating, rhetoric is growing more divisive, and tensions are high. So, a couple of days ago, I was having a very hard time calming down and opening my heart to prayer.

I remember being so sad, so worried, that I couldn’t even begin the Rosary. But then all of a sudden, I felt a deep calm come over me. I then asked myself, what was it I really wanted? If I could change the world right now, what would I choose it to be. And immediately I began to pray the Our Father, very quietly and slowly, phrase by phrase.

Our Father….

Who art in Heaven….

Hallowed be Thy name….

I realized as I prayed that the words of the Our Father described perfectly exactly what I would want if I could change the world.

I realized that if the Our Father became my reality, I would be the most blessed of all people. The world would be a wonderful place to live. And all our troubles would be solved!

Think about it!!

Our Father… (To live with God as my Father, and God as my neighbor’s father, and God as Father of every person on earth, would make us one family. We would all be bonded as siblings. There would be a family bond throughout the world!! And we would have the best, most perfect Father ever!)

Who art in Heaven… (Our Father is in Heaven. He lives in eternal happiness and joy. And Heaven is going to be my home one day, if I choose God as my all in all. There is a Heaven. It is real. More real than earth. More substantial and beautiful than all the worlds combined. Wow)

Hallowed be Thy Name… (Oh how I wish we all would hallow God’s Name. Synonyms for Hallowed are:

holy, sacred, consecrated, sanctified, blessed, blest. revered, reverenced, venerated, honored, sacrosanct, worshipped, divine, inviolable. If only all of us on earth would hallow God’s name, showing such reverence and awe for Him that we would all fall in love with Him and obey Him! What a world that would be.)

Thy Kingdom come… (Oh if only God’s Kingdom would come! All our trouble would be over. All our hopes would be fulfilled. There would be peace for all. We need God’s Kingdom to come…)

Thy will be done… (God’s will is life-giving and wholesome. God’s will is that we live with Him forever, in Heaven. And He wills that our lives on earth will make us resemble His Son in love and sacrifice, so that others will join Him in Heaven. God’s will is awesome!!)

On earth as it is in Heaven… (If the Kingdom would come on earth it would be Heaven on earth!)

Give us this day our daily bread… (If we lived trusting in God’s providence, we would have a deep peace. This practice of trusting our lives into God’s hands teaches us how to prepare for Heaven. It also helps us not to hoard or become self-absorbed. One day at a time, enough for me!)

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us… (Forgiveness is a most healing action for us. By forgiving others we free ourselves from all the bad things that have happened to us and move into the freedom of Christ. Jesus taught us how to forgive on the Cross. To forgive is to be free! And as we forgive others, God can then forgive us! For certainly we have sinned as well. It is beautiful!!)

And lead us not into temptation… (The devil is the tempter. He spends every moment of every day whispering deceptive thoughts into our ears, hoping to snare us. He wants us to become like Him. So, we need God to protect us from the tempter by leading our thoughts away from temptation to hope and love. A life without temptation would be a peaceful life.)

But deliver us from evil… (Yes, there is evil in our world. We cannot solve it. We can only be lifted out of it by grace. God can save us from evil, if we ask Him to do it. Once we have forgiven and repented from our sin, we can give ourselves completely to the Lord, who can deliver us from all evil.)

Well, I went through the Our Father very slowly the next day. And each time I prayed a phrase of it, it sent me into a little ecstasy. I felt like I was floating on air. Everything I could wish for is contained in the Our Father. If it came to be, I would be the happiest person ever!!

I also realized that praying the Our Father, phrase by phrase, was like a deliverance prayer. I felt freer and freer of the anxiety, fear and sadness that was trying to overwhelm me. Really it was a spiritual warfare prayer that worked.

The Our Father answers all our needs! It is amazing!

Our Lady said to us:

April 02, 2014 “Dear children, with a motherly love I desire to help you with your life of prayer and penance to be a sincere attempt at drawing closer to my Son and His divine light – that you may know how to separate yourselves from sin. Every prayer, every Mass and every fasting is an attempt at drawing closer to my Son, a reminder of His glory and a refuge from sin – it is a way to a renewed union of the good Father and His children. Therefore, my dear children, with hearts open and full of love, cry out the name of the Heavenly Father that He may illuminate you with the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit you will become a spring of God’s love. All those who do not know my Son, all those thirsting for the love and peace of my Son, will drink from this spring. Thank you. Pray for your shepherds. I pray for them and I desire that they may always feel the blessing of my motherly hands and the support of my motherly heart.”

“With Hearts open and full of love, cry out the name of the Heavenly Father that He may illuminate you with the Holy Spirit!”

This is exactly what this prayer of the Our Father was doing for me. It was filling me with the Holy Spirit.

Whenever I start feeling anxiety now, I dive into the prayer of the Our Father, slowly, deliberately saying each phrase, realizing that I am praying for the answer to all our troubles. And my heart rests in God.

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!
