Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart.

Dear Family of Mary!

” …I know that you desire to have a strong faith and to express it in the right way. What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith – then every way in which you express it is proper. Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children; it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God’s creatures…” (December 2, 2018)

Advent is a time of faith. We are waiting on several different levels. We wait for the Second Coming of Christ. We wait for our own particular judgement (when we die). And we wait for the celebration of the Incarnation and Birth of Jesus! Christmas!!! We wait with faith on all three accounts. Faith is what gives meaning and hope in each case.

And so I am really intrigued by Our Lady’s little teaching on faith in the December 2nd message. She seems to understand that Advent is all about faith. And she shows us how we can best relate to it.

She tells us she knows we desire to have a strong faith. She knows that we struggle sometimes in our very challenging world to maintain a strong faith. We live among so many who do not have faith (yet). And there is a river of public opinion that would move us away from our faith in God. This pressure makes us maybe too quiet about our faith. It is not easy to go upstream.

And so she tells us what Jesus would have us know, What my Son asks of you is to have a sincere, strong and deep faith – then every way in which you express it is proper.” Jesus does not want us to be shy about our faith. But strong faith without sincerity or depth will not be enough. To be sincere means that our faith has become personal. Our faith is not a habit or a way of life that makes us feel safe. No, our faith needs to come out of our personal relationship to the One in whom we believe. Our faith has to rest on Jesus.

And our faith also needs to be deep. What does this mean? I think it means that our faith, our belief in Jesus has to come from the very bottom of our heart, the very bedrock of who we are. Our faith cannot be just one of the things we do in life. It has to be the basis of who we are! A deep faith is one that will never be shaken. Why? Because we have been deeply and powerfully loved by our Savior.

I am also blown away by the next sentences: “Faith is a most wonderful mystery which is kept in the heart. It is between the Heavenly Father and all of His children…” Imagine! Our faith is a mystery, my faith cannot be understood by anyone else but me. My faith is so intimate that only the Father understands where it comes from and how I got it. My faith is a function of the Father’s love for me and my response to Him. Our God respects each one of us so much that He will never disclose what is in our hearts to others, and He will always be faithful to that intimacy. He sees, He understands, He loves, where no one else can go, the depths of our hearts. And it is from that love that our faith springs.

Only God can love each one of us individually, all the billions of humans He has created are each known and loved by Him intimately and uniquely. No one is unnoticed or unloved. No one.

The only way we can see the faith of another is through the fruits of their lives. “…it is recognized by the fruits and by the love which one has towards all of God’s creatures…” It is by our love that we are recognized as people of faith. Our good works and our great-heartedness show the footprints of God’s presence in us. It can’t be counterfeited.

Well, I just love Our Lady’s words on faith. May we all take time in the Advent season to go deeply into ourselves, to find that spot where the Heavenly Father resides in us, and let Him share the mystery with us. Oh the joy!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. Christine Watkins has written a new book, “Of Men and Mary.” It is a wonderful book about the conversions of six different men, through Our Lady. Thank you, Christine for your tireless efforts to help us grow closer to Our Lady and Jesus!

A quote from one review of the book: OF MEN AND MARY recounts the riveting conversion stories of, among others, a convicted murderer and a man who was clinically dead. Three of the book’s six subjects became Catholic priests and one became a deacon. At a time when men are feeling discouraged and disengaged from the Church and the priesthood is under attack, this book offers a much-needed dose of hope, courage and inspiration. Female readers will also want to hear her grace-filled message-and to share it with the men in their lives.

Here is a link to see more about the book and/or order one!

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!
