The December 18, 2020, Reflection – The feeling of Heaven – Hidden in the Newborn!

The feeling of Heaven – hidden in the Newborn!

December 18, 2020
Christmas Novena, Day 4

Dear Family of Mary!

“…God sent me to be joy and hope in this time, and I am saying to you: Without little Jesus you do not have the tenderness or the feeling of Heaven which is hidden in the Newborn…” (November 25, 2020)

I find it comforting to know that God has provided for us in these days we are living right now.  He knew that these days would be filled with anxiety, depression, fear of the future, and a deep oppression from the enemy.  Our enemy is laying a trap for us.  He wants to engulf us in the troubles of these days and take away our peace and our faith.

But the Father sent Our Lady “to be joy and hope in this time…”  She is the antidote to all that the devil is doing to bring us down.  She is joy!!  She comes from Heaven to tell us that God exists, that God loves us, that Jesus is our brother, and that we have been called and chosen by God!  All of this give us a deep hope for the future.  Our Lady of Medjugorje is God’s answer to the lies of the devil.

And what does Our Lady tell us to do in these difficult days?  “Pray, little children, for little Jesus will be born in your hearts!”  She calls us to open our hearts to Jesus.  Then she warns us: “Without little Jesus you do not have the tenderness or the feeling of Heaven which is hidden in the Newborn…” 

We need little Jesus in our hearts so that our hearts can be transformed!!  We need little Jesus because His presence brings powerful graces to us.  And these graces will change us forever!

Jesus will bring to our hearts, tenderness!  What is tenderness?  Let’s think about it.

Tenderness is softness.  A tender heart is soft, gentle, kind, generous, welcoming, quiet, and loving.  A tender heart is able to feel the needs and trials of others.  A tender heart can empathize.  Such a heart feels what the other is feeling and responds with love.  When a tenderhearted person sees a baby, that person responds with all his or her strength to serve that little one.  To protect the baby, to nurture the baby, to comfort the baby…etc.  A tender heart is a loving and nurturing heart.

When Baby Jesus is born in our hearts, our hearts change.  They become tender, supernaturally tender!!

And this next gift is even more astounding.  With little Jesus in our hearts, we can have “the feeling of Heaven which is hidden in the Newborn!”  The feeling of Heaven!  Heaven itself is hidden in the Newborn Jesus.  Little Jesus brings Heaven in a powerful way.

It is true that every newborn baby communicates a bit of Heaven.  If you have ever witnessed a birth, you know this is true.  When that tiny little human is revealed, squinting at the light, shivering a bit with the coolness of the air, reaching out but not finding the comforting confines of the womb, and just being so new, there is also something otherworldly about him.  It has to do with wonder.  We are astounded at the wonder of new life, the wonder at God’s intricate design for each child, and even more we are in wonder at the presence of a soul that will live forever.  We can feel it.  It is there.

And so, imagine what it was like to see the Newborn King!  Magnify this wonder at a newborn human a billion, trillion times and you will still only be scratching the surface.  Jesus, the Newborn, brought Heaven to earth.  And though it was hidden from so many in His time, it broke out quite often, bringing healing and conversion and truth and light to all who desired to see.

Our Lady wants us to experience that Heaven that is hidden in the Newborn this Christmas.  She wants us to be transformed by the Heaven that is hidden in the Newborn Jesus, born in our hearts.  Our Lady is talking about transformation.  She wants us changed, made whole and strong through the birth of Jesus in our hearts.

Are we ready to be transformed?  Are we ready to be filled with joy, hope, tenderness, and Heaven?  We need to pray for it (desire it) and give Jesus permission to come into our hearts this Christmas!

Let us pray:

Dearest Baby Jesus.  I love You.  I can’t take our eyes off of You.  I long for You.  And I pray to You, please come and be born in my heart today.  And I say to You: I give you permission to be born in my heart right now, today.  I give you permission to use my poor stable of a heart as your birthplace.  I open the doors of my stable/heart, and I say to You, come!  Come with Your Mother, Mary, and with Your foster father, Joseph, and find in my heart, a place to rest and be born.  I welcome You with wonder and awe.  And I love You with all of my strength.  Come and take over my stable of a heart.  It is Yours forever.  Amen.

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!
