Open yourselves!

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! In this time of grace, I am calling all of you to open yourselves and to live the commandments which God has given you, that they may lead you through the Sacraments on the way of conversion. The world and worldly temptations are testing you, but you, little children, look at God’s creatures which He has given to you in beauty and humility and, little children, love God above everything and He will lead you on the way of salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (February 25, 2018)

“In this time of grace, I am calling all of you to open yourselves…”

“In this time of grace….” Lent is a time of grace. The Church has declared that Lent is to be set aside as a time of prayer, fasting and alms giving. It is a time for silence and prayer, a time when we look deeply into our hearts and clean out all that doesn’t belong in them. All attachments and inordinate desires. A time of cleansing and getting back to the basics of the spiritual life. It is also a time of fasting, which draws us ever closer to God through renunciation. And alms giving is the true test of our detachment from material things, of learning to care for others. Yes, Lent is a time of grace!

But there is also a sense of timeliness in these days, because Our Lady is with us. Every time she tells us we are in a time of grace, I think about the fact that Mary, the Mother of God, has said so! She is with us for a time. This is that time, and it is indeed a time of grace!

“I am calling all of you to open yourselves…” Our Lady often asks us to open ourselves. The phrase can go by unnoticed! But if she says it often, it is because it is important. What are we opening ourselves to? The universe? New ideas? Therapies? No, Our Lady would not ask us to open to such things. She is surely asking us to open ourselves to God. Think of how she did just that at the Annunciation! With perfect presence of mind, in a state of receptivity and thoughtfulness, Our Lady opened herself to the Angel Gabriel, who was bringing her the message of God. That must be what she is getting at. We need to open ourselves to God, to his action in our lives, to His presence, to His love, to His will, His plan for our lives.

Jesus wants us to open the doors of our hearts to Him. Jesus said to us in Revelations: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Rev 3:20) Jesus wants to come into our hearts in order to commune with us. He wants to be one with us, to give Himself to us, in our hearts, if we open up to Him. This is the opening of ourselves that Our Lady desires.

So in this time of grace, Jesus is going to be knocking at the doors of our hearts. If we choose to pray, to be silent and seek the Lord, He will come. But it takes from us an attitude of trust and faith. Again I think of Our Lady at the Annunciation. She trusted God. She was surrendered to Him. Once she heard the invitation and tested it, she immediately said, “Be it done unto me according to your word.” She wants to fill us with her faith and trust so that we will be able to open up to the Lord, hear His knock, respond to His call, and be led by Him into His plan.

So, may we all find time to experience this “time of grace”!! May we choose to pray, choose to fast, and empty ourselves through alms giving, so that we will be ready to hear the knock and open the door of our hearts to Jesus, our Savior!

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!
