Cardinal Schoenborn prays after Holy Mass on September 29, 2015
"Thank you Jesus! You have given Mary to us as a mother, and in that way you are binding us to you through her. Jesus, we thank you that you are sending her to us, that she's opening the heavens and that she's coming to us. Thank you Jesus for so much given from Heaven through your Mother, so much comfort, so many tears dried, so many wounds that have been healed. Thank you Jesus that you have opened her motherly heart to us - that she's a mother to all of us. Thank you Jesus that you have become our brother, our Lord, our teacher through your Mother. Thank you, Jesus!"

Dear Apostles of Mary, Family of Mary TV!

On October 2nd I received the following email:
"I'm sure you'll be inundated with questions regarding the non-broadcast of Mirjana's apparition this morning. Was there a technical problem or a prudent reticence in view of recent changes in Medjugorje."
Though I'm not aware of any substantial changes in Medjugorje, I think "prudent reticence" expresses it exactly. We had been given the green light to film...
I believe the graces of Medjugorje have never been greater. I believe the situation of Medjugorje in the heart of the Church has never been stronger! For example, Vittorio Messori, widely recognized as the most famous Catholic journalist, has gone on record stating Our Lady's apparitions in Medjugojre have brought about "the largest mass movement for a battered Catholicism since the Council." Today the numbers of pilgrims and the numbers of priests in Medjguorje are increasing.
I believe Our Lady has been yearning for this time to come.... I
Live Streaming thousands of hours from Medjugorje, everyday Mary TV is connecting her children together throughout the world. "With an honest and simple heart unite in prayer regardless of how far you are from each other."(10/2/15) Our programming is helping encourage spiritual growth (don't miss tonight's episode of "Fruit of Medjugorje"!) Our TV channel is bringing her presence into more and more homes. "I am watching over you and am with you whenever you think of me."(10/2/15)
At this time in the history of the Church (the Synod in Rome has just begun) Our Lady is counting on our unity in prayer with her: "Pray also for your shepherds, for those who renounced everything for the sake of my Son and for your sake. Love them and pray for them. The Heavenly Father is listening to your prayers."(10/2/15)
Mary TV's fiscal year ends this month. As we assess our financial situation, we will be thinking of all the wonderful things we can do for Our Lady in the coming year. This is a good time for all of us to pray about how we can join in this work of connecting Our Lady of Medjugorje with the world! It is an exciting time! Through your generosity, and the wonders of modern communication technologies, we may be able to unite Our Lady's children to her presence in Medjugorje. "My Son promised me that evil will never win because you, the souls of the just, are here!" (11/2/14)
Thank you and God bless you!
