The Five First Saturdays

(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2018

March 6, 2018

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Oh, apostles of my love, how much my motherly heart loves you. How many things I desire to teach you. How my motherly heart desires that you be complete…” (March 2, 2018)

Our Lady is our Mother. She really is. Jesus gave her to us from the Cross. She is our Mother!

Last Saturday (March 3) was First Saturday. The 5 First Saturday devotion is such a blessing. Lucia of Fatima received this request. Here is a very brief description of the devotion:

The “Five First Saturdays Devotion.”

The Blessed Virgin Mary said she would “assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation,” all those who fulfilled the Five First Saturdays Devotion.

There are 4 things you must do -and you must do each of them on the First Saturday of 5 months in a row:

1.Go to Confession
2.Receive Holy Communion
3.Pray 5 Decades of the rosary
4.”Keep her company” for 15 minutes by meditating on the mysteries of the rosary with the intention of offering reparation to her. This is a separate prayer time from praying the rosary, though.

This devotion seems so simple, but it becomes a great desire for those who practice it. I received a witness from one of our shipmates about her completion of the Five First Saturdays Devotion just this past weekend:

Today I finished my fifth First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
No more eternal hell for this kid.

How grateful I am… but not grateful enough. I asked the Blessed Mother before going up to Communion today if She would receive Jesus for me and be thankful for me because I know alone I can’t give Him all that He deserves. I knew for certain at that moment that She always has been thankful for me when I could not be.

My whole life She has been there. Not a moment have I been alone.

When I meditated for 15 minutes on the rosary all I could think of was…

First mystery: She said yes for me.
Second mystery: She gave thanks for me.
Third mystery: She let me kiss Baby Jesus and brought Him over to me.
Fourth Mystery: She presented me to the Father.
Fifth mystery: She found Jesus for me when I lost Him.

She not only was with me during all the suffering in my life but also suffered along with me.

She holds me in Her arms.
Teaches me to pray to the Holy Spirit.
Never did She die and leave me.
She is Queen of all of me.
And I am Hers forever.

Really – I have the thought that She makes everything I offer perfect for Jesus -that way I don’t have to worry about my weakness, I can forget myself and just be radiantly joyful.

She connects me to the love between the Father and the Son. I am very much welcomed and a part [of them], forever.

Well, who wouldn’t want such graces and fruits as these! Every First Saturday is a great opportunity to draw closer to Our Lady, make reparation to her heart for all the disrespect and faithlessness directed towards her, and meditate on Our Lady’s mysteries. She has always been Our Mother, Mother for each one of us! We are so blessed.

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!
