Preparing for the Immaculate Conception!

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! When you come to me, as to a mother, with a pure and open heart, know that I am listening to you, encouraging you, consoling you and, above all, interceding for you with my Son. 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…” (December 2, 2018)

We are approaching the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. We have 4 days to prepare. I think that the opening of Our Lady’s December 2 message is a perfect preparation for this earthquake of a feast day!

Why do I call it an earthquake? Well, this event changed the world forever. God looked forward to Jesus’ redemptive death, looking forward as only God can look forward, and He decided to take an advance on it and use the grace to be received then to form and protect the perfect Woman who would be Jesus’ Mother. The Immaculate Conception happened because Jesus died! Hard to wrap our puny minds around. But it did! And Mary was conceived without sin, without the brokenness that all other humans bear from conception. She was spared in order to bring Christ into the world to save all of us.

This was an earthquake that no one heard or felt or saw. But it was an event that changed everything!

Anyway, we approach this feast now with our broken and struggling hearts, longing to know Our Lady better, longing to be touched by her, needing to be mothered by her. And she tells us in the message that she is listening to us, encouraging us, consoling us and above all interceding for us to Jesus. She is longing to mother us!! Our hearts are searching for her, and her Immaculate Heart is searching for us. She wants us!!!

She continues to tell us that our desire to have faith is good, and that if we are sincere, and our desire is strong, we will find that our faith is strong! There is no question, if we seek we will find!

So I propose that we take the next four days and pray a beautiful prayer to Our Lady, one for each day, and let the prayer lead us to our Mother who is waiting for us, longing to mother us, hoping that we will come to her and give her our hearts. Let’s seek her with all our strength, and know that she will be found.

Here is the first prayer. We might consider praying the prayer often throughout the day, slowly and with silence in our hearts!

Glorious Virgin Mary, I long to love your Son, Jesus, the way he deserves to be loved-with the love of your Immaculate Heart.

Unite me to your Immaculate Heart so that I will be open to receive your Son with the same dispositions by which you received him.

Your Immaculate Heart is supremely gentle, steadfast, watchful-completely given over to the will of God.

Lead me out of the darkness of ignorance, free me from all selfishness and willful self-assertion, and train me in conformity with your Immaculate Heart.

Let me always trust your Immaculate Heart as a true source of grace and mercy.

In sharing in the Passion of your Son, your Immaculate Heart was pierced.

May your immaculate love embrace me in moments of suffering.

I beg to make reparation for all offenses against your Immaculate Heart as I offer you my intentions (mention your request). Amen.

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

“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!
