33 Day Consecration – Day 22

Dear Family of Mary!

33 Day Prayer of Consecration to Our Lady of the Rosary – Day 22

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Receive our Consecration Prayer, O dearest Mother Mary! 

A great champion for Our Lady, Fr. Albert Shamon, wrote many pamphlets and books on Our Lady. He loved Medjugorje and believed in Our Lady’s presence there. He was a priest of the Rochester Diocese under Archbishop Fulton Sheen. Fr. Shamon wrote a short work called “The Power of the Rosary” which I find very helpful. I want to share some excerpts from this little book with you all as we continue our 33 Day Consecration.

In Chapter One, Fr. Shamon puts the Rosary in the context of the history of nations over the past 400 years. He asks the question, “Why is the Holy Rosary so efficacious?” Our Lady has recommended it in every apparition over that same time period. He says, “One reason is that the Rosary is a thinking prayer.” He says that over these centuries bad thinking was introduced by so many philosophers, i.e. Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot, the Encyclopedists, the Deists, Marx, Nietzsche, Stalin, and on and on. Bad thinking! Thinking that was based on atheism and the exaltation of Humanity.

But Fr. Shamon tells us:

Why this emphasis on the Rosary? Our Mother, the virgin most prudent, well knows that as we think, so we act. Creeds go before deeds. And she also knows that there is nothing so able to straighten out our thinking and counteract the errors of modern society as daily meditation on the mysteries of the Rosary!!

The Rosary is good thinking. It drives home four great truths of religion.

1. The Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary teach the first great truth of religion; namely, life and religion are meant to be joyful. So many don’t think that. Very often, they think the very opposite. George Eliot described some of the clergymen of her day as ‘pale faced mementos of solemnities.” Glumdums!

The Joyful Mysteries teach the very opposite. They remind us that life is to be joyful; that religion, too, is to be joyful; that God has made us for happiness. That was why He put our first parents in a world that was a paradise. Did not Paul urge his beloved Philippians, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice!”

But better still, the Joyful Mysteries tell us how we can obtain that joy; namely, by doing God’s will as Mary and Joseph did, as Elizabeth and Zechariah did, as Anna and Simeon, the shepherds and the wise men did. (Rev. Albert J. M. Shamon. The Power of the Rosary. 1990 p. 4, 10)

I never thought of the Rosary as a “thinking prayer”, but Fr. Shamon is right! Through the contemplation of the mysteries in each decade we are presented with the truth about humanity, the truth about God and the call we have been given. We become those who see through the fog of lies present in our day and can steer our way joyfully towards the Light! (We will talk about 2,3 and 4 the next 3 days)

As Our Lady has said:

December 25, 1996 “Dear children! Today I am with you in a special way, holding little Jesus in my lap and I invite you, little children, to open yourselves to His call. He calls you to joy. Little children, joyfully live the messages of the Gospel, which I am repeating in the time since I am with you. Little children, I am your Mother and I desire to reveal to you the God of love and the God of peace. I do not desire for your life to be in sadness but that it be realized in joy for eternity, according to the Gospel. Only in this way will your life have meaning. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Dearest Mother, thank you for the gift of the Rosary! Thank you for finding such a perfect way to help us become good thinkers, those who ponder and learn the truth through the mysteries of Jesus’ life. We have a good teacher in your, dearest Mary!

Supplication to the Queen of the Holy Rosary:

“O Blessed Rosary of Mary, sweet chain which unites us to God, bond of love which unites us to the angels, tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, safe port in our universal shipwreck, we will never abandon you. You will be our comfort in the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life ebbs away. And the last word from our lips will be your sweet name, O Queen of the Rosary of Pompei, O dearest Mother, O Refuge of Sinners, O Sovereign Consoler of the Afflicted. May you be everywhere blessed, today and always, on earth and in heaven”. (Blessed Bartolo Longo)

We commit ourselves to praying the Rosary for your intentions, dearest Mary, our Mother, as You enter this final battle with Satan, for the sake of souls. We will take up the Rosary as an obligation that we will fulfill with great joy! Together we will pray for Your Triumph over Satan, and for the coming of a New Time of Peace which has been given to us through You, Oh Clement, O Loving, O Sweet Virgin Mary!! Amen

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Now we pray our Rosary for today! Glorious mysteries!! 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“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!
