Mary TV Daily Reflection 8/11/2015
Marija encounters Our Lady - August 10, 2015 (c)Mary TV 2015
August 11, 2015
Dear Family of Mary!
Marija invited Mary TV to stream her daily apparition. It took place in
the building behind her house, which is a retreat center. There were
many people in attendance. After prayer of the Rosary, Marija led the
people in the 7-7-7, and Our Lady came to her in the midst of that
prayer. It was a beautiful encounter. Here is what Marija shared
afterwards. There was no English translation, so this is a translation
of Marija's Italian (with some summarizing):
Marija shared her encounter with Our Lady:
upon Our Lady's arrival, Marija said that she presented everyone
present and their loved ones to Our Lady. Our Lady remained silent while
Marija offer to her those present, their families, those in their
hearts as well as every nation, explaining to Our Lady that people had
come from all over the world. She asked Our Lady: Grant us peace that we
may be makers of peace, of love, of His peace. Our Lady was tender and
smiled and Marija thanked her for this grace, for her presence every
day. Our Lady tenderly began to pray over us and again blessed us.
then shared, "Every day Our Lady is always surprising us!" Marija
continued to say that even though we have grown accustomed to it, that
it has become a kind of routine to be with Our Lady, with her presence,
with her blessing, with her prayer... it still touches us so deeply.
She said, "For me it is always a great joy to be able to share with you!
I believe that Our Lady, looking at us, sees not only us but sees also
the plan that [God] has for us." She continued, "Now we have many
priests, thanks be to Heaven! Let us ask to receive through them the
protection of Our Lady. We ask also for the protection of Jesus who uses
the hands of the priest. God can use even the most unholy priest to
absolve our sins, to bless us, so that we can be His instruments."
Several things attracted my attention in Marija's description of this encounter:
twice mentioned how tenderly Our Lady looked at us and prayed for us.
This is very consoling for us all. Our Lady's heart does not grow hard
or bitter, no matter how long we delay our conversion or fall from the
way of her Son. She loves us with the compassion and tenderness of a
mother, and will never reject us or leave us.
said that we may have grown accustomed to Our Lady's presence, her
daily coming, her blessing and her prayer. She used the word "routine".
Indeed we do seem to take it as a part of every day that Our Lady will
come to the visionaries in Medjugorje, or wherever they are, in the
evening. We have come to rely on Our Lady's coming as we rely on the
rising and setting of the sun! Is this bad? I don't think so. As Marija
said, "It still touches us so deeply." It touches us because we feel so
completely safe because of her coming. We feel that we can rely upon our
Mother totally, every day. She is with us always. I think this is part
of why she has come every day. She is training us to rely upon her, like
a little child relies on his mother. She is our Mother and she will not
Finally Marija mentioned that we can
receive protection from our priests. We can received the protection of
Mary and Jesus, through their ministry. They baptize us, forgive our
sins, feed us with the Bread from Heaven, teach us the Gospel, and bless
us against all evil. They cover us with the mantle of Mary and the
Sacred Blood of Jesus. Even when they are struggling with sin
themselves, they still can bless us because of their office. We are
indeed being given a great deal of peace through our priests.
Mother is tender, she is with us always, and she provides for us
through our priests. We are truly blessed children. Thank you, dearest
Father for providing for us in so many ways. Thank you!
Thanks to the Mary TV team in Medjugorje for doing such a wonderful job
of streaming Marija's apparition to us. They do so much with very
little. Please pray for them, and ask for a blessing upon them for their
great and selfless work!!
