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!

Dear Family of Mary!
TV will record Mirjana's July 2 apparition today, and post it on our
website in the archive of Mirjana's Apparitions. Denis and I will try to
get as close as we can for Our Lady's coming. You will all be in our
hearts, all your intentions, your families and your needs. We love you
all so much, and carry you with us everywhere!
spent most of yesterday in the Mary TV Studio with Kiki, Mario and
Vlado. After 10:00 English Mass, we sat in on the taping of Fr. Leon's
Musing! He spoke just brilliantly, answering the questions that some of
you have sent in to him! Fr. Leon is a great gift to all of us in the
boat. He is teaching us such practical things about the faith. And he
does it in a way that is both memorable and deep. Please keep him in
prayer as he continues to shepherd us from Medjugorje!
we showed several people the unfinished studios in the basement of the
building. They are quite impressive, even in their unfinished state. We
have a huge studio that will seat about 200 people, and could be used
for meetings and talks as well as large events. There are two other big
rooms waiting to be finished and furnished for studios and equipment
storage. We trust that when Our Lady needs these spaces, she will send
us the money to finish them. Please pray for that.
is a miraculous picture that was taken near our building. It shows the
sun shining in a huge orb, and a figure of golden light standing on top
of Mary TV's building! It appears to be Our Lady! And she is standing
over our studios. This picture showed up on Facebook the night that Ivan
had an apparition on Apparition Hill, and he would not let us use
lights or film him. So I had begged Our Lady to give us just a little
light as a sign that she was still with Mary TV. We were amazed to see
this picture later that night, with not just a little light, but tons of
light, shining on our studios. Thanks be to God! We are so grateful to
Mother Mary for guiding us. (We also explain this picture in our Snippet
this we prayed the Hour of Mercy with Kiki on the camera at Our Lady's
Statue in front of St. James Church. What a peaceful prayer.
we prayed the Daily Rosary, in the studio. It is always our joy to get
on line and pray with all of you in the boat. Denis and I love to pray
with you. It is always a joy, never a burden. Here is something Fr.
Gabriel Amorth said about the power of the Rosary:
The Power of the Rosary! By Father Gabriel Amorth, Chief Exorcist of the Vatican
day a colleague of mine heard the devil say during an exorcism: "Every
Hail Mary is like a blow on my head. If Christians knew how powerful the
Rosary was, it would be my end."
The secret that makes this
prayer so effective is that the Rosary is both prayer and meditation. It
is addressed to the Father, to the Blessed Virgin, and to the Holy
Trinity, and is a meditation centered on Christ...
powerful prayer of Exorcism, the Rosary, which contains the Our Father,
the Perfect Prayer. Prayed five times in the recitation of each set of
the Rosary's Mysteries, back up by the powerful prayers of our Mother
who prays as we pray 53 Hail Marys.
The Eternal Father
described to a group of us, through a visionary friend of mine, what
happens when we pray the Rosary, saying,
"When you pray Holy
Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our
death, the Blessed Mother comes instantly to your side to pray with you.
And she does not come alone. She brings angels with her. And not just
one or two for she is the Queen of Angels, so choirs of angels come with
her. And she and Jesus are joined at the heart and cannot be separated,
so she brings Jesus with her. Jesus cannot be separated from the
Trinity so He brings the Father and the Holy Spirit with Him. And where
the Holy Trinity is, all of creation is, and you are surrounded by such
beauty and light as you cannot imagine in this life.
Mother comes as Our Lady of Grace with her hands outstretched. Rays of
light emit from her hands piercing your body, healing you and filling
you with graces. This is your inheritance which was poured out from the
heart of Jesus on the Cross, when the centurion pierces His Heart with a
spear, into the only pure vessel to receive such graces at that time,
Now as you pray the Rosary, or even just recite
one Hail Mary, you receive your portion of these graces. He also said at
this time, "Anyone who goes to Mary and prays the Rosary cannot be
touched by Satan."
With all of the reasons stated above, can we
really rush through the recitation of this powerful prayer? Would you
ever talk fast to anyone saying "I love you?
evening the Holy Rosary is prayed, very reverently, by the parish and
pilgrims in Medjugorje. Denis and I always want to be sitting on a bench
in the very back, just soaking up the prayer of the Rosary with so many
thousands of people. We prayed for you last night and will keep it up!
