“To know or to not know Jesus Christ!”


July 4, 2024

Dear Family of Mary!

Yesterday was the Feast of St. Thomas, Apostle. And we heard in the Gospel reading about how Thomas was not present when the other disciples encountered the Risen Jesus, who walked through the locked door and presented Himself to them. And that Thomas would not believe that Jesus was alive unless he could put his fingers in the holes in His hands, and put his hand in Jesus’ side. We know that one week later, Jesus appeared to them all, and turned to Thomas, offering His hands and side as evidence that He was truly risen!

It is an amazing event. Thomas declared, “My Lord and my God!”

Denis tells me that Thomas was the first apostle to declare that Jesus was his Lord and his God. This act of faith came out of Thomas’ deepest self, out of the darkness of his unbelief which had turned into the light of faith! Thomas went on to be an incredible Apostle, traveling throughout Asia, making disciples for the Lord.

At Mass yesterday, our parish priest, Fr. Peter, said in his homily that this transformation in Thomas demonstrates the deepest reality in a human being’s life. He said, “There is only one great joy and one great tragedy in life: To know or to not know Jesus Christ.” These words make sense out of everything! Thomas made the transition from no faith to total faith in one moment. We, too, must reach that critical moment when we choose to believe or not to believe in Christ. Each human must make that choice. It is the moment we know Christ or we turn away from Him.

Our Lady told Jelena 1983:, “I have come to tell the world that God is truth; He exists.”

She was sent by the Father to save as many souls as possible in these most difficult times. It is the fundamental choice that must be made in each heart. And Our Lady is with us to shine the light of the Holy Spirit upon each heart so that they can see that fundamental choice and choose God! They can open their hearts to know Jesus! (We know of the countless conversions that take place in Medjugorje. They are the fruit of Our Lady’s transforming love.)

Finally, I want to share a moment in prayer that I had after Mass. Fr. Peter’s homily had a profound effect upon me. And when I prayed about it, I realized that my mind and heart are constantly being barraged by fearful thoughts, hopeless thoughts, sad thoughts, etc… I realized that all those thoughts were trying to drag me away from the one thing necessary, my faith in Jesus. I turned to the Lord for help and here is what I heard:

“Fill your mind with these two words. Say them constantly. They will protect you from all those temptations to faithlessness. The words are: “Only Jesus”.

I immediately started to slowly say “Only Jesus” over and over in my heart and mind. And peace began to grow in my heart, my mind, my spirit. “Only Jesus,” “Only Jesus.”

I believe there is a huge battle for souls in our time, as the enemy wants to convince as many people as possible that there is no God, no Jesus. This is the fundamental battle ground for each one of us and for the world. To argue with the enemy is useless. To assert gently over and over again, “Only Jesus”, drives the enemy away.

May we stay very close to Jesus, “Only Jesus”! And very close to Mother Mary, “I have come to tell the world that God is truth, He exists.”

God bless you all!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
Cathy Nolan

“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 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!
