The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Dear Family of Mary!
On this beautiful feast day of Our Lady, we can but give thanks to her for the grace of her presence with us in these days. She is our hope. She comes to us in these difficult days, to help us find the path of faith, the path that leads to God and to peace. On Thursday, November 17, we were able to be present during her coming to Ivan in a special way, through the internet. It was for thousands and thousands of us, a moment of heaven.
I want to share with all of you first some statistics that show how many of Our Lady's children were able to join her for her encounter with Ivan. Matt and Tom tell us that on November 17, our website had over 2 million hits! (This means that over 2 million attempts were made to access Mary TV on that day. Incredible! There were at least 231,200 viewers. (This means that there were 231,200 computers stayed connected for the event) The total hours of viewing equaled 3,103 days of viewing, or about 9 years. (This tells us how long everyone watched that one day. This number is very big!!) Over 100 countries were represented! We usually use about .2 to .4 Terabytes of data in a month. Last year for the one day in Vienna we sent out .5 Terabytes of data which is huge. But this year we sent out 8.1 Terabytes of data, which is 16 times greater! We are all astounded. Man, many people were touched by the prayer and testimonies, and the presence of Our Lady.
Thanks be to God! We are so happy for these incredible stats!
Now I would like to share with you the words of Ivan Dragicevic (sent by Anna Shawl, who checked them with Ivan for accuracy), given between Holy Mass and Adoration at St. Stephens. Ivan shared about his encounter with Our Lady that day:
Our Lady to came to us very happy.
She greeted us with her motherly blessing of praised be Jesus my dear children. After this, she prayed especially for the priests with her hands extended.
After this, I recommended especially all the priests present here tonight.
After this she prayed with her hands extended over all of us here.
She blessed us with her motherly blessing and blessed all the religious articles that were brought to her to be blessed.
I then recommended this archdiocese, and his Eminence the Cardinal. Then Gospa prayed in a very special way for this archdiocese and all of its needs.
After this I recommended all of you, your petitions, needs and your families.

After this, Our Lady prayed for all those present who are ill and I recommended all the sick
After this, Our Lady said:
"Dear Children, today I call you to prayer. Especially when Satan desires war and hate, I call you again my small children to pray, pray, pray that God will give you peace. Offer peace to every heart and be carriers of peace in this faithless world. I am with you and I pray before God for every one of you. And you, do not be afraid because whoever prays has no fear of evil and has no hatred in the heart. Thank you my dear children for having responded to my call."
After that we prayed Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
After that Gospa continued to pray over all of us. After this she left in the sign of a lighted cross with the salutation "Go in peace my dear children".
God bless you all and thank you again for praying for Mary TV and the success of this event. We are very grateful to all of you.
In Jesus and Mary!
