Dear Family of Mary!
“My children, live the Gospel, live merciful love for your neighbors, and, above all, live love for the Heavenly Father. My children, you are not united by chance. The Heavenly Father does not unite anyone by chance…” (02/02/19)
Right after Our Lady calls us to live love she tells us something startling. “My children, you are not united by chance. The Heavenly Father does not unite anyone by chance.” What could she mean by this?
As I pray on it, it seems to me that she knows what she is talking about. She wants us to know that we have been called by the Father in a special way. But who are ‘we’? Of course, ‘we’ must be those who have responded to Our Lady’s call from Medjugorje. Those who listen to her messages and put them into practice. Those who love Medjugorje, the place where Our Lady resides, bringing heaven to earth. We have been united by Our Lady. And this is a work of the Heavenly Father. He is uniting us in prayer and love so that together we can help Our Lady Triumph.
Mary TV was begun it seems by inspiration from Our Lady of Medjugorje, to provide a way for her children around the world to be united in prayer and love. It was a little idea that has grown into a big reality, through grace and faith. I feel like Our Lady was talking to us, shipmates, as one of the groups that the Father has united. How else could Mary TV have made it this far!!
We receive emails and letters daily, in which shipmates share the effects of our unity and prayer together through Mary TV. It is a unity with Our Lady of Medjugorje! Not with Denis or me or anyone else. It is Our Lady who is our leader and mother. But the strength that our unity provides for each of us is powerful. Here is an example:
“Dear Mary TV! I was recently guided to your website and I cannot express in words the blessing it has been. I am no stranger to the Medjugorje experience, having been blessed to visit twice! (1988 and 1994)! Watching the Mass and all the other [programs] is just like being there again. Might I liken Mary TV to an umbilical cord – keeping me connected to Mama! May God bless the work that you do and may He bless you and all those that work with you! Thank you for being a light in this dark world. It is comforting and strengthening to be with those of like mind and spirit. Sincerely CG”
I like the analogy of the umbilical cord! Yes, we are being kept alive, nourished, by Our Lady in Medjugorje, and Mary TV provides a way to be near Mother Mary, near enough for her to take care of us all!!
And so, our unity is not by chance. Our Unity has been provided by the Heavenly Father. And it is a unity of love, as children love each other because they have the same mother!! Our unity is a source of peace and strength for each one of us, and a way to love the Heavenly Father as well. We are so blessed to have each other!!
Thank you for responding to Our Lady’s call! We bless one another when we do!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
