The Wreath that binds us to God!

St. Peter Chrysologus

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! My call for you is prayer. May prayer be a joy for you and a wreath which binds you to God…” (July 25, 2019)

When I first read this message, I wondered what Our Lady could mean by “a wreath which binds you to God.” For my English language ears, it seemed a bit odd. So, I did some investigating of the word “wreath” and I looked at some other translations of the message to see what words were used. Here is what I found:

Synonyms of the word “wreath”: garland, chaplet, circlet, coronet, crown…

They all can mean a circle of woven flowers or leaves into a round adornment. (One could make a wreath out of roses!) But some of these words carry another meaning as well. Chaplet reminds us of the circle of beads that we call the Rosary. And coronet or crown remind us that the Rosary is also associated with the Crown of Our Lady. So, it seems that this wreath alludes to the Rosary, the prayer of the Rosary!

Here are some translation versions:

Croatian: vijenac
French:  la couronne 
Italian:  una corona
German: der Kranz  
Spanish: una corona

All of these words refer to a wreath, but some of them carry with them the meaning of a crown. In Italian the Rosary can be called “la Corona del Rosario”. And that is what finally convinced me that Our Lady was referring to the Rosary as the wreath that binds us to God.

And isn’t it true! The Rosary is a strong prayer that brings so much peace when we pray it. It is a beautiful prayer that helps us open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. It is a simple prayer that in so many ways draws our hearts away from the complications of our modern world into a relationship of trust and surrender to the God who loves us. The Rosary is a deep prayer, in which we meditate on the mysteries of the life of Jesus. Those mysteries teach us so much about our fallen nature and the price that Jesus had to pay to save us, not to mention the joy of eternal life that awaits us. This wreath of prayer is a stronger bond than any earthly chain. It is made of roses, but those roses form an unbreakable bond with God.

May we pray our Rosary with all our hearts, with deep gratitude, because through the Rosary we are bound to God forever in bliss!     

“…And to me, my children, give the gift of the rosary, the roses which I love so much. My roses are your prayers pronounced with the heart and not only recited with the lips. My roses are your acts of prayer, faith and love. When my Son was little, he said to me that my children would be numerous and that they would bring me many roses. I did not comprehend Him. Now I know that you are those children who are bringing me roses…” (December 2, 2017)

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“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

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!
