Feast of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin MaryDear Family of Mary!

In the midst of our novena, we have had the Feast of the Sacred Heart on Friday, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary today (Saturday).  Thanks be to God, Reuben has sent us a beautiful reflection for those two days that will help us to grasp the love that surrounds us from those two hearts!  Thank you Reuben!!

From Heart to Heart!!

January 2, 2008 “Dear children! With all the strength of my heart, I love you and give myself to you. As a mother fights for her children, I pray and fight for you. I ask you not to be afraid to open yourselves, so as to be able to love with the heart and give yourselves to others. The more that you do this with the heart, the more you will receive and the better you will understand my Son and His gift to you. Through the love of my Son and me, may you all be recognized. Thank you.” Our Lady blessed all those present and religious articles brought for blessing. She asked for prayer and fasting for our shepherds.

I am writing on the Feast of the Sacred Heart. Once again, I find myself thinking about the incarnate nature of our faith: how it’s not a set of intellectual beliefs abstracted from the purely spiritual, but is grounded in the material. And so much so, that Our Lord in heaven made himself material among us by His incarnation in history, and by the Sacred Host of our Eucharist, which is really where the same reality outside of all time enters time. Christ is the unity of God and man, just as we are the unity of soul and body. The whole of God and heaven condescends to be with us in a way which we, as body-souls, can touch and taste and cling to! As Denis is fond of saying – heaven is a real place, with real food!!

Why am I thinking about this today? Because it’s a feast day which celebrates exactly what I’m saying: how God himself, in all his almightiness and power, came to take on a beating human heart that loves us beyond all human measure. And one thing is for sure, that all of us will see this God-Man soon. No matter the length of days left to each individual, or to the world, our lives are as short as the blinking of an eye, when they are seen from God’s eternal perspective. Soon, all of us will stand in front of the incarnate God and hear his beating heart. Judgement will be in relation to this heart. We will have to ask ourselves how much time and care we spent here on earth loving that Heart which loved us all the way to the cross.

And now that we are in the age of Divine Mercy, heralded by the Mother’s real material presence in Medjugorje, we might dare to say that this Sacred Heart beats more passionately than ever for souls. We might say what St Paul says, that where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more. It is as though that very Heart of Christ’s is opening itself up to more and more piercings of more and more lances, and all for love. And don’t we feel that in Medjugorje? Isn’t the presence of the Mother in Medjugorje such an immediate and tangible way to hear the beat of Christ’s merciful heart?

I was looking at archive footage of all the many people in the crowds praying at the liturgy in Medjugorje. I was deeply struck by what I saw there. Every face, bar none, and in such an individual manner, was deeply at prayer. One could literally see and almost touch the love of person to person so visible on each of their faces.

Because that’s surely what happens there at the Mother’s home. We become children of she who has an immaculate heart, and so we can learn from her to open our own hearts to the Sacred Heart, which is that heart that so perpetually wants to save and sanctify us.

I noted how all the faces that I saw looked both joyful AND pained, because that’s what love is like. When we become children of God, really knowing in our hearts what our eldest brother did for us, we are pained by the pain He experiences for all of us, and so we become brothers and sisters, who can feel exactly the same pain for each other, yet always with an equal measure of a joy which is entirely other-worldly, and really makes no sense at all to the unspiritual person. Isn’t that amazing, how the spiritual essence of mercy is something that courses through our physical veins, changing even the way we feel, as though directing all our senses to gather in the sights and sounds that help us feel it? Mercy is incarnate in Christ, but sometimes, even I can actually, literally and materially feel it become incarnate in me too. Heart really does want to speak to heart, and Our Mother really does want to encourage the conversation…..

“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

“My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!”

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!
