March 15, 2021 Update – Mary is a Queen who prays!

Mary is a Queen who prays!

March 15, 2021

Dear Family of Mary!

On Friday, we will honor St. Joseph for the incredible part he had to play in our salvation! Many of us are praying novenas and 33 day consecrations to St. Joseph! This is wonderful!!! But there is another feast day coming up that requires even more attention and preparation. It is the feast day without which St. Joseph would have been unknown. It is the Annunciation!

Our Lady at the Annunciation gave her “fiat” and changed everything for mankind. Our Lady said “yes” to the invitation from God the Father to be the Mother of His Incarnate Son. Redemption began at that moment!

I would like to pray a novena before the Annunciation, which will overlap our 33 day preparation for St. Joseph’s Feast Day on March 19. But we can do both!

Today I want to share with you a short meditation from the Magnificat by Fr. Elwood Ferrer Smith, O.P., which spoke very strongly to me about Our Lady and her role as Mother of God. It is a good preparation for our Novena before the Annunciation.

Read it slowly and let it sink deeply into your heart:

All God makes and does and gives is freely accomplished by him. He makes but one stipulation, one condition—that it be sought, be asked. Ask and you shall receive (Mt 7:7).

By Mary’s prayer the Church asks for Christ and every blessing. By Mary’s prayer the human race beseeches God its destiny. By Mary’s prayer does all the universe bespeak of God his goodness.

That this be so is fitting, especially so for men, for the Church. St. Paul says: We know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit himself asks for us with unspeakable groanings (Rom 8:26). She who is the Seat of Wisdom knows what is our need. She who is the Bride of the Spirit brings to him our yearnings and, more, her yearnings for us.

In Mary, the vocation of woman as woman is brought to an undreamed-of summit. She is Mother and she is Queen.

As Mother she begets, nourishes, fosters, brings to maturity the life of Christ again in every soul. As Queen she seeks and gains that life for us.

As Mother she brings forth the Kingdom of God; as Queen she seeks for each and all—she seeks for Christ, her King—the perfection of the Kingdom.

Through her the divine mercy comes to lift us from death to life. Through her the savor of the goodness of God’s love is ours. In her we find the strength where we have naught but weakness.

Well do we pray to her: Hail, holy Queen, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. Mary is Queen. She is a Queen who prays and by her prayer gains all and governs all. She is the Queen who prays, and, through her, prayer achieves fulfillment. It becomes glory.

(Father Elwood Ferrer Smith, O.P. Magnificat, P. 178 -March 2021)


St. Joseph! We know that the more we reflect upon and wonder at your spouse, Mary, the happier you are!! We pray to you:

Dear St. Joseph, foster father of us all, we love you!
You so faithfully stayed by the side of Mary when she gave Jesus to the world the first time. Help us now in our turn to stay faithfully by her side in Medjugorje.

Dear St. Joseph, you were always strong and resolute – in Bethlehem, in Egypt, and in Nazareth. You never wavered from the side of Mary. Help us to be strong and resolute and to never waver from her side. Dear St. Joseph, help us to be faithful to the call of Our Lady and to witness to her presence in these days. St. Joseph, pray for us!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“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 of Medjugorje – November 2, 2014

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!
