Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
Dear Family of Mary TV,
Apostles of Our Lady of Medjugorje!
Never before had Cathy or I ever seen so many people in Medjugorje (even without the Italians and Irish – whose governments had issued travel lock downs). Plane load after plane load came pouring in from all over the world; hundreds of buses – fifty buses from Poland, thirty buses from the Ukraine. Thousands of pilgrims arrived on foot. I was told that the night before the 40th Anniversary, five thousand came walking in through the surrounding hills.
All night long, you could hear hymns being sung to Our Lady from homes and guest houses. Three days before the Anniversary, the University Chaplain at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Fr. Shawn Roberson, decided to climb up Apparition Hill. He showed me the picture. Arriving at the base of the trail, he found so many people gathered there, intent on doing the same; climbing was impossible! And it was 10:00 pm !
Eighteen years ago, our Mother encouraged us to pray with the heart, “because God loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by one, through my coming here.” One by one, her children had come to say, “Thank You.” It was personal. The reverence was tangible, profound. You could feel it in the prayer.
Her children had welcomed her, made room for her; set aside their own agendas and had given her space. Our Lady was very joyful; very, very grateful!
“Dear children! My heart is joyful because through these years I see your love and openness to my call! Today I am calling all of you: pray with me for peace and freedom, because Satan is strong and by his deception, wants to lead away all the more hearts from my motherly heart. That is why decide for God so that it may be good for you on the earth which God gave you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (June 25, 2021)
A Mary TV shipmate writes:
“The wedding feast at Cana is really like Medjugorje. Mary knew we were running out of wine and if she didn’t do something we’d be in big trouble. And ‘the couple’ is humanity. ‘The wine steward’ is the church hierarchy. We, Mary’s children in Medjugorje, having been filling the water jars with all our prayers and sacrifices and sufferings, and I believe the time will come soon that all that wine will be given to the church, and all those who doubted Medjugorje or slandered it will know that the world was saved because of Mary and Medjugorje!!”
On June 25, 2021, Our Lady crossed the Rubicon. She’s going in now for the kill against the devil! It’s for us to place our footprint right inside of hers!
God bless you!
P.S We’ve been told many people during the week of the 40th Anniversary witnessed the miracle of the sun, see below. (I’m afraid Cathy and I were so far back under the trees during Mass, we missed it.)
Continue soaking up the grace of this historic day at MaryTV.tv, a day the devil was sure would never come: the 40th Anniversary of our Mother’s apparitions!
It was your response to her call that gave her this gift! And it’s through her children that it will continue! In her first monthly message she told us, “God has chosen each one of you in order to use you for the great plan of salvation of mankind. You cannot comprehend how great your role is in God’s plan… I am with you so that you can realize it completely!” Twenty seven years later she said: “You are a part of me!” and on September 25, 2019: “Day by day God wraps you with my presence!”
You are the living scapular of Our Lady being given to the world!
