The December 23, 2020 Reflection – Reconcile with God!

Reconcile with God!

December 23, 2020
St. John of Kanty
Christmas Novena Day 9

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Reconcile with God, little children, and you will see miracles around you…” (11/25/20)

This is the last day of our Christmas Novena. Our final sentence in the November 25, 2020 message gives us a way to enter into Christmas!

The word “reconcile” is beautiful.  It means “to restore to friendship or harmony” or “to settle differences.”  In human relationships it can be a difficult project to complete.  Once two people have had a falling about something, it can be very hard for them to forgive one another and return to being friends as before.  And if one person has betrayed another, it is rare that the relationship can be mended.  But there is much joy when the two who are estranged find their way back into trust and harmony.

Even more so, it is a beautiful thing when reconciliation occurs between God and one of His human children.  Indeed, the stories of such reconciliations can be found throughout the Bible.  Adam and Eve were estranged from God in the Garden, but in Genesis chapter 3, God promised a way back for them.  David served the Lord, but in later life sinned gravely, yet David repented in humility and God accepted him back.  Job questioned the Lord in his suffering, but God showed Job the truth, and their relationship was healed.  And Peter denied the Lord on Good Friday, but after the Resurrection, Jesus brought Peter back into His friendship by the words, “Peter, do you love me?”   It seems that God is always ready to reconcile with us.  We are the ones who find it hard to bridge the gap when we have sinned.

The is why Our Lady calls us to reconcile with God right now, before Christmas.  She knows that we have a really hard time being honest with ourselves and seeing exactly what we have done to become estranged from God.  But all we have to do is take some time to talk to the Lord about it.  He will show us.  In what ways have I broken trust with the Lord?  How have I forgotten Him?  How have I lost my connection to the Lord?  Am I praying and speaking to Him?  Am I looking for Him in everyday life?  Am I thinking of Him and including Him in my decisions?  These questions may help.  We know what issue has driven a wedge between us and God.  That is where we should start in reconciling.

If we succeed in finding our way back to the Lord (Confession is the way to do it), we will enter into the Christmas season with such joy!!  And I think we will see miracles all around us!!  Because when we walk as one with the Lord, He can do miracles around us.  Imagine walking with Jesus as the disciples did, and seeing the blind given their sight, the lame walking, the deaf hearing, the lepers cleansed, the dead raised!!!  Just by walking with Jesus, you would see miracles all around you.

It is the same today.  When we are reconciled with Jesus, we walk with Him, and we see all the miracles He is doing.  We are just walking with Him, and He is doing miracles!  Let’s run to be reconciled with our Lord!

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!

“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

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!
