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!
have come to the last full day of the 27th Youth Festival in
Medjugorje. It has been a powerful week of prayer and testimony! It has
been a blessing to be present for the sessions and evening Masses, etc. I
feel as though I am there, through the awesome live streaming of the
events by our Mary TV Team. Truly, they have done an amazing job.
last night was a climax! After all day in the hot sun, our team
extended their work almost to midnight, filming and streaming the
Cenacolo Play, "Credo"!!!! It was incredible! And immediately after they
broke down their cameras, they uploaded the recording to our Mary TV
Youth Festival archive, so you can watch it right now!! Here is a link:
In the video window there is a play list and you can scroll down the list to find:
"Cenacolo Play - 08/04/16"
could not stop crying as I watched the reverent and awe-inspiring
depictions of the moments in salvation history from Adam and Eve to the
Resurrection! You will love this play.
are a few screen grabs of the play. Cenacolo Community did a fabulous
job. They actually presented the play in Krakow for World Youth Day, and
only just arrived in Medjugorje a couple of days ago. They had to build
their very ingenious set again, and then execute the play! They did a
wonderful job. Thank you, Cenacolo brothers and sisters, for giving of
yourselves so completely to share with us the mysteries of our faith!!
Scenes from the Cenacolo Play; Credo
will be the closing ceremony of the Festival. And then during the night
the youth will climb Cross Mountain, to attend the 5:00 am sunrise Mass
for the Feast of the Transfiguration! What a fitting end to a powerful
week of prayer, catechesis, and liturgy!
I am tired just watching it all!!! J
want to end with the July 2, 2016 message, because it seems to say a
lot to the young people about what Our Lady has been doing in their
lives this week;
July 2nd, 2016
children, My real, living presence among you should make you happy
because this is the great love of my Son. He is sending me among you so
that, with a motherly love, I may grant you safety; that you may
comprehend that pain and joy, suffering and love, make your soul live
intensely; that I may call you anew to glorify the Heart of Jesus, the
heart of faith, the Eucharist. From day to day through the centuries, my
Son, alive, returns among you - He returns to you, though He has never
left you. When one of you, my children, returns to Him, my motherly
heart leaps with joy. Therefore, my children, return to the Eucharist,
to my Son. The way to my Son is difficult, full of renunciations, but at
the end, there is always the light. I understand your pains and
sufferings, and with motherly love I wipe your tears. Trust in my Son,
because He will do for you what you would not even know how to ask for.
You, my children, you should be concerned only for your soul, because it
is the only thing on earth that belongs to you. You will bring it,
dirty or clean, before the Heavenly Father. Remember, faith in the love
of my Son will always be rewarded. I implore you, in a special way, to
pray for those whom my Son called to live according to Him and to love
their flock. Thank you."
believe the young people have heard this call this week. And they
certainly look happy basking in Our Lady's real, living presence in
