March 17, 2021 Update – Hail, O favored One, the Lord is with you!

Hail, O favored One, the Lord is with you!

March 17, 2021
St. Patrick!

Dear Family of Mary!

Day Two of our Novena for the Annunciation of the Lord:

“And he came to her and said, ‘Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!'” (Luke 1:28)

When Gabriel first addressed Our Lady, he hailed her with a greeting that is most unique. From the Greek, he said “Hail, Kecharitomene!” This word we are told is only used this one time, and it names Mary! Here is a short discussion of this greeting:

In Luke 1:28, the word that the angel uses is kecharitomene. So it’s not literally “full of grace,” but its root word is the Greek verb “to give grace” (charitoo). The word is the past perfect tense, meaning that the action of giving grace has already occurred. It was not something that was about to happen to her but something that has already been accomplished. The word was also used as a title. The angel did not say, “Hail Mary, you are kecharitomene” but rather, “Hail kecharitomene.” Therefore the word is not simply an action but an identity.

It is thus difficult to translate because it is a unique use of the word. It has been translated by various scholars as “full of grace”, “graced one,” “one who has been made graced,” “highly graced,” and “highly favored.” In the last instance the translator is using the concept that to be graced by God is to find favor with God. It would appear that any translation should use the word “grace,” because that is the root word.


The Angel came with a greeting from God! The Father told him to call her something like “Hail, She who has been filled with grace!” This title is not a description, but actually is Mary! She alone in all creation was to be called this, because she alone was born, Immaculate, by the prevenient grace of her Son’s death on the Cross. She alone was preserved from Original Sin. She alone was and is the Woman filled with grace, past, present, and future!

This is our Mother, Mary!!! This is our true mother who loves us and has come to us in Medjugorje to help us on our way to heaven.

Our Lady spoke to Mirjana in these words:

Mirjana: Who are you? “I am the Most Blessed Virgin Mary.” (June 6, 1981)

Truly the Most Blessed, because she is “She who was filled with grace” from the beginning!!!

Let us pray:

Annunciation prayer of faith:

Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal Word,

You became Incarnate as man
in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

You, through whom the universe was created,

began your earthly course,
in the womb of a humble and chaste Virgin.

At the annunciation of this miracle,

Mary responded in faith:
“Let it be done to me according to your word.”

May we who are made new creatures by your grace,

respond with such faith, when you call us to your service. Amen
(written by David Bennett)

And for St. Joseph: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!

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!
