Sound teaching on Apparitions…

October 10, 2018

Dear Family of Mary!

Often Fr. Leon will give a little talk before English Mass, which we call a “Sanctuary Snippet!” (You can listen to all the Snippets here:  https://marytv.tv/sanctuary-snippets-2/  ) He does short teachings that help us in our spiritual life.  The Snippet for yesterday, October 9, was so helpful!  He answered several objections to Medjugorje as an apparition site.  We all encounter people who are cautious or even afraid of Medjugorje.  Fr. Leon’s points will help us to allay their fears.  Medjugorje is a grace for our time!

Fr. Leon’s Snippet for October 9, 2018:

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Today I thought I would talk to you about possible objections to Medjugorje.  Some of the objections that people come up with (these are the sort of things you hear or have already heard, or maybe you have these objections yourself…):

One of the things people say is that you cannot go to an unapproved apparition site. You cannot go to an unapproved apparitions site.  Well, what happened at Lourdes.  Lourdes took four years to be approved, Fatima took fifteen years to be approved.  When they were approved the bishops said that one of the reasons they were approved was the continual numbers of people who were coming there while it was still not approved.  So that is one of the signs that the Church looks for.  So to say that you cannot go to a place that is not approved yet is not true.

Then people say that the apparitions at Medjugorje have gone on too long. OK, how long is too long?  In Laus in France, the apparitions went on for 54 years, daily apparitions.  Fatima, we know that Sr. Lucia continued to have apparitions for 88 years!  OK? So how long is too long?

Then they say that the approval is too slow in coming.  Champion in Wisconsin to 151 years to be approved, Laus in France took 344 years.  So the average number of years for Marian Apparitions Sites for approval is 64.8 years.  Here in Medjugorje we are near 37 years, so we have another 27.8 years to go before we are average.

Then  people say there is a danger in going to a place like Medjugorje.  This is true.  According to Archbishop Leonard of Brussels.  He said there are two dangers in going to Medjugorje.

Number 1.  The first danger in going to Medjugorje is that it may be false.  And if it is false we are all in danger of being deceived.  If we are being deceived, we are being deceived into what?  Praying the Rosary every day from the heart, going to Mass every day, going to confession once a month, reading our Bibles, fasting on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Oh happy deception, I wish the whole world were deceived in this way.

Number 2.  Then he says there is a greater danger to Medjugorje.  This is the danger of “What if it is true?”  Because then it is a grace from God, and how have we responded to it?  So that is the greater danger!

Then people say, “Oh the visionaries lives.  If I had seen the Mother of God, I would have become a monk or nun or something.”  Then you have to ask yourselves, why haven’t I become a monk or nun, its not too late!  I have a habit in your size.  Now this a I call, Vauzou syndrome.  I name it after the novice mistress of St. Bernadette.  Sr. Vauzou said, “Why would the Mother of God appear to an illiterate, uneducated sister?  She should have appeared to a marvelous, fantastic, clever person like me.”

Now think about La Salette.  In La Salette, which is an approved apparition, the two visionaries were hounded by the public and they both went off the rails.  Melanie, the girl, joined four different orders and she died outside all of them, dispensed from her vows.  Maximin, the boy, was thrown out of high school.  Then thrown out of medical school, then tried to be a soldier and failed at that. Tried to train as a pharmacist, and later lent his name to a man who made liquor, and they called it “Visionary Liquor”.  He was swindled out of a lot of money.  Then he died, penniless, alcoholic and in a ditch, alone. But he was a real visionary.  So don’t confuse being a visionary with being a saint.  This is a good reason why we should leave them alone and not hound them.

Finally, two last things.

People say Our Lady doesn’t make appointments to appear, because here she appears at 5:40 every day.  What did she do in history, well we know at Guadalupe she said to come back tomorrow, same time and same place.  Fatima, come back every 13th of the month, same time, same place.  Lourdes: “Will you do me the great grace of coming here every day for 15 days.” So from this we see that Mary is perfectly capable of making appointments.

And finally, people complain that it is the same message, over and over.  This is submit to all the mothers here.  You know if you repeat yourself, obviously you must be fake. So to all the mothers here, how many times do you tell your children to come down to dinner?   How many times do you tell them to clean their rooms?  Just once? Because if you repeat yourself you must be fake.

Ok, if Our Lady has to repeat herself it means that we are bad children!

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit!  Amen.

June 25, 2007 “Dear children! Also today, with great joy in my heart, I call you to conversion. Little children, do not forget that you are all important in this great plan, which God leads through Medjugorje. God desires to convert the entire world and to call it to salvation and to the way towards Himself, who is the beginning and the end of every being. In a special way, little children, from the depth of my heart, I call you all to open yourselves to this great grace that God gives you through my presence here. I desire to thank each of you for the sacrifices and prayers. I am with you and I bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

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!
