The Advocate

May 11, 2021

Dear Family of Mary!

“But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. (John 16:7)

In the Gospel today, Jesus calls the Holy Spirit the Advocate! In the Revised Standard Version it is translated the Counselor. Both titles are helpful. Jesus wanted the Apostles to understand that He was not going to leave them like orphans. His departure would be followed by the coming of the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, who would dwell in them and with them for the rest of their earthly lives. Jesus would never abandon His own. Nor does He abandon us. We receive the Holy Spirit at Baptism and Confirmation in a powerful way, but we also receive Him in every prayer we say. He comes to dwell in all who call upon Him in their hearts!!

Isn’t our God incredibly beautiful!!!

Our Lady advised us:

May 25, 2000 “Dear children! I rejoice with you and in this time of grace I call you to spiritual renewal. Pray, little children, that the Holy Spirit may come to dwell in you in fullness, so that you may be able to witness in joy to all those who are far from faith. Especially, little children, pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that in the spirit of love, every day and in each situation, you may be closer to your fellow-man; and that in wisdom and love you may overcome every difficulty. I am with you and I intercede for each of you before Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

She too tells us that if we pray the Holy Spirit will come to dwell in us in fullness! The Spirit wants to live in us, to take up His abode in us, so that He can guide and console and bless us, so that He can show us how best we can serve Jesus. The Spirit wants to dwell in us!!

St. John Paul II wrote about the Holy Spirit dwelling in us in His Catechesis on the Holy Spirit with these words:

7. Jesus announces that the Holy Spirit will come to “remain” with us: “I will pray to the Father and he will give you another Comforter that he may remain with you forever” (Jn 14, 16); he himself will remain, not only his power, his wisdom, his action; but he himself as a Person.

And again: he himself will remain not only “with us”, but “by us” and “in us”. “You know him” – says Jesus “because he dwells close to you and will be in you (Jn 14, 17). These words express the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as inner guest in people’s hearts: in the heart of anyone among all the souls belonging to Christ who welcomes the Spirit. The Father and Son too come to “take up residence” in these souls (Jn 14:23). Therefore the whole Trinity is present in them, but, since this is a spiritual presence, that presence refers in a most direct way to the Person of the Holy Spirit.

8. Through this presence at work in the soul, a person can become that “true worshipper” of God who “is spirit” (Jn 4:24), as Jesus said in the meeting with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well (cf. Jn 4:23). The hour of those who “adore the Father in spirit and truth” arrived with Christ and becomes a reality in every person who accepts the Holy Spirit and lives according to the Spirit’s inspiration and under the Spirit’s personal direction. That is the greatest and holiest element in Christian spirituality.”

(An Advocate who dwells in us – Catechesis by Pope John Paul II on the Holy Spirit – General Audience, Wednesday 26 September 1990)


Well, I am very excited to begin the Novena to the Holy Spirit that we will pray before Pentecost!! It starts on this Friday, May 14!! Let’s stay close to Our Lady in these next days, for she is the spouse of the Holy Spirit!! Who better to help us receive Him!

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

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!
