This blog was started on July 21st, 2015, after my Mary, Our Mother blog had mysteriously disappeared. I will post only Marian items, especially regarding Medjugorje and other Marian apparitions. Thank you for reading this blog. May it give great glory to God through the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Mary TV June 14, 2016 Reflection - Glorify the Lord through Mary!

Dear Family of Mary!
in these considerations of the good effects of True Devotion to Mary,
St. Louis de Montfort explains that when we live our consecration to
Mary, every time we think of her or praise her, she turns that praise
into glory for God. Mary is entirely consumed with giving glory to the
Lord. He explains:
you never think of Mary without Mary thinking of God for you. You never
praise or honor Mary without Mary joining you in praising and honoring
God. Mary is entirely relative to God. Indeed, I would say that she was
relative only to God, because she exists uniquely in reference to him.
She is an echo of God, speaking and repeating only God. If you say
"Mary" she says "God". When St. Elizabeth praised Mary calling her
blessed because she had believed, Mary, the faithful echo of God,
responded with her canticle, "My soul glorifies the Lord." What Mary did
on that day; she does every day. When we praise her, when we love and
honor her, when we present anything to her, then God is praised, honored
and loved and receives our gift through Mary and in Mary. (St. Louis de
Montfort. "True Devotion to Mary." N 225)
you love this! Mary is the perfect conduit to God, because she is
totally focused on Him, loving Him, praising Him and glorifying Him. She
gathers us up into the praise and glory for God!
In this message we can glimpse this process in Mary:
August 25, 1999 "Dear
children! Also today I call you to give glory to God the Creator in the
colors of nature. He speaks to you also through the smallest flower
about His beauty and the depth of love with which He has created you.
Little children, may prayer flow from your hearts like fresh water from a
spring. May the wheat fields speak to you about the mercy of God
towards every creature. That is why, renew prayer of thanksgiving for
everything He gives you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
Lady glorifies the Lord and rejoices in her Savior! She wants us to
have her same joy, by joining her in glorifying our God! This is where
we are headed! This is our destiny, to live forever in heaven,
surrounded by the Lord and beholding His glory! Amen, Amen!! Tomorrow
we will begin the Novena in honor of the 35th Anniversary of Our Lady's
presence with us in Medjugorje! We can give God so much glory by
honoring His Mother for these 9 days. Thank you for joining Mary TV in
