Mother Mary said at Fatima: "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the sure way which will lead you to God." St. Thomas Aquinas said: "The things we love tell us who we are!" With that in mind, I will try to post each day something about Our Blessed Lady, items about the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and public domain Catholic books too! I pray you enjoy my ministry!
Below are two albums of pictures that I created:

Pray for Peace!!

Dear Family of Mary!
The live streaming of Marija's August 15, 2014 apparition was a beautiful event. Mary TV began streaming at Marija's house as the pilgrims were gathering. The Rosary was prayed very reverently, in several languages. And a message from Our Lady was read between the decades. It was a beautiful gift to give Our Lady, all that prayer and holy singing.
After the apparition, Marija shared a little about her encounter with Our Lady. Here is what she said;
"At the moment of the apparition Our Lady came and I recommended all of your intentions, and Our Lady prayed over us. I recommended especially those people who had asked our prayer in a special way, all the sick people and the people who are suffering in our prayer. And Our Lady prayed over us and she blessed us. Our Lady came, like always on a feast because today is a big feast, in a golden dress, very rich and very beautiful."
Our Lady always prays for our intentions, according to the visionaries. She is solicitous of all our needs and sufferings. She is a mother!
I also want to share a message that the visionary Ivan received at an evening of prayer at the Church of the Holy Crown in Vicenza, Italy on August 17, 2014, just two days ago:
"Dear children, today in a special way I invite you to pray for peace. Open yourself to the Holy Spirit, dear children, so that the Holy Spirit may guide you. Particularly at this time, dear children, pray for my beloved Holy Father; pray for his mission of peace. I pray with you; interceding with my Son for each of you. Thank you dear children, because even today you have responded to my call."
It is said that after Ivan shared this message he said that Our Lady particularly wanted to emphasize the peace mission of Pope Francis.
This message speaks loudly to all of us. The entire world seems to be engulfed in violence and hatred. We all feel quite helpless in the face of it all. But Our Lady does not want us to be helpless. She is showing us the way to help! She says, "Pray for peace." And she goes further. She asks us to open ourselves to the Holy Spirit so that He can guide us. The Holy Spirit knows what we can do. He knows exactly what is possible for each one of us to do in the face of evil. If we pray and open our hearts to His guidance, He will show us exactly what to do in our own sphere of influence. We will not be helpless!!
And so, Our Queen who came in gold, wants to encourage us. She wants us to become her agents of peace, supporting our Holy Father, Pope Francis, in his mission of peace. We each have a role to play. We are not helpless, but helpers for peace! Come Holy Spirit!
PS. "Fruit of Medjugorje" Episode 127, which aired last night at Mary TV, is a talk by Fr. Petar Ljubicic. He addresses the need to pray for peace with Our Lady. This talk will help us to respond to Our Lady's message through Ivan on August 17. See how the Holy Spirit is ready to lead us!!! Wow!! You can watch this Fruit show atwww.marytv.tv !
