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!

August 14, 2016 Update from Denis -Mary TV interviews the President of Croatia
Mary TV! Be connected!
President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović on Tea with Rosie!
August 14, 2016
St. Maximilian Kolbe
Croatia's President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović was just in Medjugorje. During her stay, she granted Mary TV a personal interview! Rosie and President Grabar-Kitarović chatted about her pilgrimages to Medjugorje in the past, and what it means to her as a leader of a country to stay close to her faith. You can view the interview in the current episode of "Tea with Rosie" at <http://marytv.tv/featured-programing/tea-with-rosie>.
Mary TV's interview was the only television interview granted by the President of Croatia. President Grabar-Kitarović, who has been coming to Medjugorje since the 80's, has no doubt that Our Lady is appearing there! Lebanese religious leaders, Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic - in Medjugorje:
Also in this "Tea with Rosie" is the astonishing news that Lebanese Muslim, Orthodox and Catholic leaders are meeting in Medjugorje for an inter-religious retreat, praying for peace together.... All three religious groups reverence Mary. And in prayer together in Medjugorje they are turning to the Queen of Peace! We join our prayers with theirs for peace!
Mary TV's Incredible coverage of the Youth Festival:
Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support you are giving Mary TV's team in Medjugorje. They did an outstanding job Live-Streaming the youth festival.... It can still be viewed in its entirety at www.marytv.tv. (You might like to view some of Mary TV's spectacular aerial shots....found in the last archived file for the Youth Festival on August 2nd, titled "Meditation with candles and Prayer before the Cross", at: 0:59:16 to 0:59:47, and, 1:01:20 to 1:03:22 and 1:24:16 to 1:25:07).
Having just performed at World Youth Day with the Pope in Poland, the cast and crew of the Cenacolo play made it back to Medjugorje just three hours before they were to perform at the Youth Festival... And what a performance!!!! Incredible! You can view the play in the Youth Festival Archive!!
At the end of the youth festival Sue from New York wrote:
I don't really have the words to express my gratitude to our Lord and our Lady for the graces I have been receiving through the Youth Festival live and archived. I can hardly contain myself and have shed many tears. I know the young men work so hard and they do such an amazing job that it's almost unbelievable. I am always impressed but I admit l take things for granted. Just like any routine I guess. I pray very much for them and for the South Bend, Jersey, TX, CO and anybody else I am not aware of. These are moments like a wedding or baptism where LOVE flows, memories are made and treasured within the heart because Heaven came through everything !! Aug 1st is the feast of Peter being unchained. August 2nd is the Portiuncola indulgence of St Francis so the kids get plenary indulgence [this year it wasn't as emphasized] Aug 4th St Jean Vianney, Aug our Lady 's birthday and the Transfiguration. Wow !!! That's really a Transfiguration for me. The prayer, mass, adoration, testimonies and the Cenacolo play !!! I have to go to Home Depot and buy a rope to keep me from levitating. You might see me over South Bend. Mary tv has been a life line in many many ways. Please share this with the team with deepest gratitude and prayers. Love, Sue
Ready to swab the deck....
Thank you Sue, you captured the great gift we were given by the Youth Festival, and our crew in Medjugorje!
Here are some behind the scenes shots of Mary TV's crew, who worked day and night throughout the festival. Great job Kristian, Mario, Vlado, Ivo, Mateo and Tony!!
Hip Hip Hurrah! For the Mary TV Team!!!
Many of you have been finding ways to promote Mary TV! Here are a few of the beautiful initiatives that are spreading the word:
Kara the rosary/potter:
Good morning Denis and Cathy!
Just wanted to give you an update on my rosary business and it's contribution to Mary TV! Since opening in March I have sold 11 rosaries! As mentioned before I am donating 10% of all sales to Mary TV. So far, I was able to send you $20 when I first sold a couple of rosaries. Recently, I used another $28 (donation) from my sales to purchase 500 Mary TV business cards and they are beautiful! I am able to carry then in my purse to hand out, as well as include them in my packaging when my rosaries are mailed out!
Another update is that our local Catholic bookstore, Angel Crossing, here in Delaware, has agreed to sell my rosaries! After speaking with Michelle, she let me know a little about your trip to Medjugorje and the camera she was able to take back with her! Funny how we are all connected in some small way. Michelle is not taking any additional funds from the sales of my rosaries after she learned of my donation from them to Mary TV!
I am still praying that one day my family can take the trip to Medjugorje but in the meantime I feel such a connection there just through this rosary ministry.
Please keep my family and this ministry in your prayers. I continue to pray for you and Mary TV as well and am so thankful for all you do for all of us each day just by showing up!

Here is another way to spread the word:
This pilgrim found another way to spread Our Lady's presence. Thanks, Bruce!!
A big "Thank You" to our donors!!
We are still aiming to reach 1000 monthly donors....At present we have 345 monthly donors. What a blessing it is to Mary TV! But many donors would rather give once or twice a year. Awesome as well!! However it works best for you, please join MaryTV's team! Our Lady has asked us to be responsible for sharing the gifts we receive in Medjugorje. Supporting Mary TV is a good way to do it!
Our Lady has said to us:
"My children, listen to me. I speak for your salvation!" (March 18, 2016)
"Pray with the heart little children and do not lose hope because God loves his creatures. He desires to save you one by one through my coming here!" (March 25, 2003)
"My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!" (Nov. 2, 2014)
Mary TV's work is just beginning.... And you are the most important part of our team.... Please continue your prayerful intercession and donations. We need you in order to continue!
