The December 15, 2020, Reflection – A time of love, warmth, prayer and joy!

A time of love, warmth, prayer and joy!

December 15, 2020
Christmas Novena, Day 1

Dear Family of Mary!

Today the parish of Medjugorje begins a Novena before Christmas!  Each day the parish will climb Apparition Hill, praying the Rosary.  Mary TV will stream this event, live, each day, at 2:00 pm Medjugorje time.  You can join in on our Channel at www.marytv.tv

Each day I will write a short reflection on a line from Our Lady’s November 25, 2020 message. There are nine sentences!!  Shall we begin!

“Dear children! This is a time of love, warmth, prayer and joy…” (November 25, 2020)

When Our Lady first gave us this message, I was struck with how odd this declaration sounded!  In the midst of Covid, lock downs, isolation, loneliness, and fear, how could she say that?

And yet, she was right!  This is the time of love, warmth, prayer, and joy!

Why?  Because this is God’s time! And God is Lord of Heaven and Earth! He is in charge of all time!  And He is the God who loves us unconditionally, who’s heart is on fire with love for us, who comes to us in prayer, and who’s Spirit transmits joy!  This is God’s time!

Advent tells us that we have everything to live for!  The answer to all our needs, hopes, desires, and longings is about to be born in a stable to a Virgin!  Our hope is not in vain.  Jesus, our Savior is coming!

I found a lovely Litany of our Lady of Hope, which gives us so much to ponder as we wait this Advent.  Our Lady is the Woman of Hope!  She can teach us how to live in expectation of the coming of the Lord.  She is our Mother, our Light, our Sweetness, and our Hope!

May we be filled with the love, warmth, prayer, and joy that Our Lady announces, through the graces she can procure for us today!

Let us pray:

“Medjugorje is the spiritual center of the world!”

Pope St. John Paul II – February 24, 1990

“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

“My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!”

Our Lady of Medjugorje – November 2, 2014

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!
