The Bread which came down from Heaven

May 6, 2022

Dear Family of Mary!

As we continue in John’s Gospel (6:52-59), Jesus hammers away at the reality of eating His flesh and drinking His blood. He insists upon it over and over, at least 6 times in this short paragraph! Why would Jesus be so insistent and graphic about eating His Flesh and drinking His Blood?

I seems to me that He did not want any discussion about it later, no dumbing down of what the Eucharist is. As horrific as it appears, He would not back down. We must eat His Flesh and drink His Blood if we want to have life within us:

The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying,
“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”

So Jesus said to them,
“Truly, truly, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you;

he who eats my flesh
and drinks my blood
has eternal life,
and I will raise him up at the last day.

For my flesh is food indeed,
and my blood is drink indeed.

He who eats my flesh
and drinks my blood
abides in me,
and I in him.

As the living Father sent me,
and I live because of the Father,
so he who eats me will live because of me.

This is the bread which came down from heaven,
not such as the fathers ate and died;
he who eats this bread will live for ever.”

This he said in the synagogue, as he taught at Caper’na-um. (John 6:52-59)

I always wonder how this must have sounded to Our Lady. This tender Mother who would die for her Child, must accept without understanding the most barbaric of notions: That Jesus’ followers would have to eat His Flesh and drink His Blood if they wanted to abide in Her Son. This was the leap of faith that she was most equipped to make, but which must of cost her a great deal.

We get a clue as to her pure hearted response to the Eucharist in messages like this one:

May 2, 2018

“Dear children,
all that my Son, who is the light of love,
has done and does,
He has done out of love.

Also you, my children,
when you live in love and love your neighbors,
you are doing the will of my Son.

Apostles of my love,
make yourselves little;
open your pure hearts to my Son
so that He can work through you.

With the help of faith,
be filled with love.

But, my children, do not forget
that the Eucharist is the heart of faith.

This is my Son
who feeds you with His Body
and strengthens you with His Blood.

This is a miracle of love:
my Son who always comes anew,
to bring life back to souls.

My children,
by living in love you are doing the will of my Son
and He lives in you.

My children,
my motherly desire is for you to always love Him more,
because He is calling you with His love.
He is giving you love
so that you may spread it to all those around you.

As a mother,
through His love,
I am with you
to speak the words of love and hope to you –
to speak to you the eternal words
that are victorious over time and death –
so as to call you to be my apostles of love.

Thank you.”

Can we say “yes” to Jesus and to Mary? Do we love them with complete love and trust?

So Jesus said to them,
“Truly, truly, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you;

Here is the prayer to Our Lady we are praying every day in May!

Our Lady of Medjugorje – July 2, 2016

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!
