The Jesus Rosary

November 22, 2021

Dear Family of Mary!

I want to share Franjo’s story about how the Jesus Rosary began to be prayed in Medjugorje, in the prayer group that Our Lady started with Jelena and Mirjana, two young girls of the parish. I believe that the Jesus Rosary is very powerful for us in these days, for healing and strengthening as we go through the difficulties of our day. Here are Franjo’s words:

At Christmas time in 1982 two little girls received inner locutions. One of them was Jelena, and afterward, Mirjana. So Our Lady, through these two little girls started to lead the prayer group in the parish. We usually had 3 meetings a week. And on Tuesday we prayed the Jesus Rosary!

It is a very, very powerful prayer. Our Lady told us that the Rosary is the most powerful weapon against Satan. But she also gave us the Jesus Rosary in 1983 and I will tell you that the Jesus Rosary contains everything that a Catholic should pray for today.

Our Lady gave us this Rosary when it was a tough time in Medjugorje. Fr. Jozo was in jail, three Franciscans were in jail, two men from the Parish of Medjugorje were in jail. Mirjana the visionary went to Sarajevo, Marija went to Mostar to school, Ivan went to school, and Vicka and Jacov would be at Mass in the evening on the right hand side of the sanctuary in the little room where they would have the apparition. And we would come to mass…Our Lady chose young people who had deep faith. Sixty young people joined the prayer group.

Our Lady taught Jelena the Jesus Rosary for our group. Jelena wrote down what Our Lady told her. A lady from our group printed it for us. So that first night, I brought the paper to my house, my family home, and my mother was there. She was still in the kitchen washing the dishes. She was very devout. So I asked her if she ever heard of the Jesus Rosary?

She said, “Jesus Rosary, yes of course. I said, “No…don’t tell me you know the Jesus Rosary?” She said, “Yes! During Lent, as a small girl of 12, I prayed the Jesus Rosary: Apostles Creed, 33 Our Fathers, and on the end 7 Glory Be’s. Thirty three Our Fathers because Jesus was on the earth for 33 years.” This was exactly what Our Lady gave Jelena! But my mother said they didn’t have any mysteries to mention during the Rosary.

So the prayer of the Jesus Rosary was here in Hercegovina, but Our Lady took that old prayer, and placed in it 8 Mysteries and Meditations and Intentions, and gave it to us.

It is lovely, it contains all that we need to pray for today: It contains prayer for peace, the pope and priests, for families, our neighbors, that Jesus will live in our hearts, God’s will in our life, and for the Holy Spirit! It is the Rosary Our Lady gave us with all the intentions we need…”

From Jesus Rosary, Episode 1, 4/29/2020: here is a link to that first Jesus Rosary show with Franjo!


I just want to share that I agree with Franjo. The Jesus Rosary is meant for these days. I have found it to be a powerful prayer for deliverance, for healing, for reconciliation and for peace. Really, there is a strong protection in praying it, because it links us very strongly to God, the Father. It is healing for all who have father wounds.

So here is a guide for praying the Jesus Rosary, if you want to try it. Of course, Our Lady’s Rosary is the weapon of choice. I just suggest the Jesus Rosary as another source of healing and strength given to us by Our Lady in Medjugorje.

“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!
