Dear Family of Mary!

Every week Rosie Zubac gives Mary TV the news from Medjugorje! She captures the daily realities of Medjugorje and helps us all feel connected to Our Lady’s village. But this week, in her “Tea with Rosie” she shared about the coming of Archbishop Hoser to Medjugorje! It is such good news, so joyful and life-giving to hear him share about his mission. So I am quoting Rosie in this reflection. You can view the video of “Tea with Rosie” on our website in the archive window on the home page. https://marytv.tv/tea-with-rosie/

Thank you, Rosie, for keeping us informed and in touch with Medjugorje:

This is Rosie Zubac, speaking to you from Medjugorje!
On the 22nd of July, a new era was marked here in Medjugorje. The Holy See’s Visitor, Archbishop Hoser, began his mission here. At the beginning of this month, the Apostolic Nuncio, Monsignor Luigi Pezzuto, read the letter from the Pope in which he explained the appointment of Archbishop Hoser in Medjugorje and his mission.

There were many, many priests concelebrating the Evening Mass, and as well as Monsignor there was Bishop Guido Gallese, Bishop of Alessandria from Italy. It was a wonderful occasion where we actually received acknowledgement from the Vatican for this place of Medjugorje and all the pilgrims who come here. We are very happy that the Archbishop is resident here and is going to help with the running of the Parish of Medjugorje.

The 25th of July is the Feast Day of St. James. He is the Patron Saint of Medjugorje, the patron of pilgrims, and the statue that we have here depicts him as a pilgrim, with his walking staff and his small water vessel, and his seashell. Those are all signs of a pilgrim. This year the people of Medjugorje went on a procession to the garden with the ruins of the old church, where there is an outside altar. There was a procession with the statue of St. James, which was followed by local people in traditional dress, and many priests concelebrated the mass.

At the end of this Mass, the Archbishop addressed the people of Medjugorje. He said, “We have a great responsibility towards the whole world, because truly Medjugorje has become a place of prayer and conversion for the whole world. Accordingly, the Holy Father is concerned and sends me here to help the Franciscan priests to organize and to acknowledge this place as a source of grace for the whole world.”
These were remarkably positive words from the Archbishop. And so we are all really happy about this appointment for the sake of the parish and for the devotion, Our Lady, Queen of Peace.
On the 25th of every month, the visionary, Marija, from Medjugorje has a message for the world, and this month and every month, after we receive this message there is all night Adoration in the church of St. James. It is a way to meditate on the words of Our Lady and to adore her Son, Jesus. So if you come here, and maybe you have come from a country far away and you have jet lag, you can come here and spend that night in prayer.

So that’s about it for me this week, so God bless you and God willing I will see you next week! Good bye!!

I don’t think we have yet completely understood what a big change has come to Medjugorje. Archbishop Hoser has brought the protection and pastoral care of Pope Francis to Medjugorje. Let’s pray for the Archbishop as he begins his mission in Medjugorje!

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

“My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!”

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!
