Our Lady’s glow!!

Sts. Cyril and Methodius

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Apostles of my love, may you always be recognized among all others by your hiddenness, love and radiance. I am with you. Thank you.” (February 2, 2019)

I am intrigued by Our Lady’s desire that we be radiant! So, I looked up the definition of “radiance” in the dictionary:

“Radiance is a type of glowing: either from a light source like the sun or a healthy, beaming person.”

Of course, we understand radiance in terms of glowing. “The radiance of the sun…” We know that the sun is unbelievably hot, and that heat produces light which travels millions of miles to us here on earth. And it does radiate! It flows over the earth in waves!

So, what about radiance in terms of a healthy, beaming person? What does that mean? I think of seeing children who have been playing out in the summer sunshine, who just overflow with health and joy. They radiate wellbeing and energy.  It is as if you can see the life just pulsating in their little bodies.

That is one kind of radiance in a person. But Our Lady wants us to be radiant. Being radiant is a sign that we are her apostles of love! So, what is she getting at?

It struck me that I have seen radiant people, people just filled with pulsing life. I have seen them by the hundreds! In Medjugorje! Yes, there is bright sunshine in Medjugorje, at least in the summer months. Yes, there is clear air and lots of outdoor activities in Medjugorje, like climbing hills. Radiance can come from those natural activities. But the radiance I see is more than natural. It is something else, something coming from within them, something emerging from their inner self, their heart. It seems to be a supernatural glow.

My guess is that when we go to Medjugorje, we receive a super abundance of blessing from heaven. We are blessed by the rosaries we pray. We are blessed by the sacraments we receive, mainly Eucharist and Confession. We are blessed by Adoration. We are blessed by the good news that is preached, and the testimonies we hear of God’s life changing grace. And we are blessed by the presence of Our Lady, covering us with her mantle of peace. We are so blessed, that our hearts begin to sing for joy! They radiate joy!

That thought leads me to another person who radiates. It is Our Lady herself. And her radiance can be traced to one thing, the incredible blessings she received from the Father, in her Immaculate Conception, in the Annunciation of the Lord, when she conceived Jesus, in her divine Motherhood, and in her co-redemption through the Crucifixion and Death of Jesus, and by the Resurrection of her Son which changed everything! She is incredibly blessed by the Coming of the Holy Spirit upon her Church, and by her Assumption, and now by her crowning as Queen of Heaven and Earth. Mary has seen so many miracles of mercy in her life that she calls herself blessed. And that blessedness radiates from her in waves.

My Soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for He has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and Holy is His Name…. (Luke 1:46 ff)

It is the incredible blessedness of Mary that radiates from her being to all of us!!! And she wants us to recognize our blessedness and rejoice in it, so that it will radiate out from our hearts to others. We can radiate because we have been soooo blessed. We only have to rejoice in it and give thanks for it, like Mary, and we will radiate too!!

So, let’s make a long, long list of the blessings we have received, and let those blessings radiate through us to all who see us. “The Almighty has done great things for me, and Holy is His Name!!!”

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!
