How to celebrate the 40th Anniversary!

June 14, 2021

Dear Family of Mary!

The message below, given on the anniversary in 2007, expresses the central meaning of Our Lady’s coming to Medjugorje! We could use it as a guide for the next few days before the 40th Anniversary!

June 25, 2007
“Dear children! Also today, with great joy in my heart, I call you to conversion.

Little children, do not forget that you are all important in this great plan, which God leads through Medjugorje. God desires to convert the entire world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards Himself, who is the beginning and the end of every being.

In a special way, little children, from the depth of my heart, I call you all to open yourselves to this great grace that God gives you through my presence here.

I desire to thank each of you for the sacrifices and prayers. I am with you and I bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

God is leading a great plan through Medjugorje. He desires to convert the entire world and call it to salvation and to the way towards Himself. He, who is the beginning and the end of every being!! And He is doing it through Our Lady! Her presence! The plan He has given to her.

What more can we do but rejoice and say yes to Our Mother. To pray as she has taught us. To sacrifice and do works of mercy under her guidance. To witness her presence!! This is our part in her plan.

As we draw close to the Anniversary, I want to share with you the beautiful program of prayer that has been planned in Medjugorje for these days. Here is the announcement from the Parish:

The Parish of Medjugorje is preparing for the 40th Anniversary of Our Lady’s apparitions. Both the parish and the parishioners have been intensively preparing for this special event for more than one year. A group of them started to meet and pray last year before the Anniversary and they decided to climb the Apparition Hill for 365 days and pray the Rosary to prepare for this celebration.

The neighbouring parish of Citluk started their Novena of nine Sundays prior to the Anniversary and their parishioners walk from their parish church to the Apparition Hill every Sunday afternoon. The employees of parish office and Information Centre Mir Medjugorje also meet for prayer on Friday mornings to prepare for this Anniversary.

The parish of Medjugorje will also prepare with the Novena that will consist of the evening prayer programme and climbing of Apparition Hill, while the main celebrants in those nine days will be former Medjugorje parish priests and assistant parish priests who were engaged in pastoral care of this parish in the last four decades.

On the Eve of the Apparitions of Our Lady, June 24, the Feast of St. John the Baptist, the traditional Peace Walk will take place from Humac to Medjugorje. This Peace Walk was initiated in 1992, in the midst of the Homeland War, when one group of foreign pilgrims, led by devoted Medjugorje pilgrim Hubert Liebherr, walked from Humac and prayed for peace in both Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina that were affected by the war.

What is new and special about this year’s celebration of the Anniversary is the procession that will take place from the Apparition Hill – place of Our Lady’s first apparition – to the church of St. James in Medjugorje. The procession will start from the Apparition Hill at 4.30 pm, so all the participants would be able to come to the church ground before the evening prayer programme. Then, after the Rosary, the procession with the statue of Our Lady would start at 7 pm and this would be the beginning of the solemn Holy Mass on that day.

“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!
