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:

Mary TV December 4, 2014 Reflection - Vicka Speaks!
(c)Mary TV 2014 Vicka speaking on 12/03/14
St. John Damascene
Dear Family of Mary!
Mary TV filmed Vicka speaking to pilgrims at the orphanage, as she
usually does! Here is the transcript of her beautiful talk so expertly
translated by Miki Musa. Her words give peace!
December 3, 2014 talk by Vicka in Medjugorje
(Vicka spoke for 24 minutes....and then prayed in silence with everyone for more than 25 minutes)
of all I would like to greet all of you. I'm very happy to be standing
among you here.... But I'm even happier that with all my heart and all
my love I can share with you Our Lady's main messages that she has been
giving to all of us. Our Lady's main messages are: prayer, peace,
conversion, confession and fasting. And Our Lady recommends to us to
pray every day all three parts of the Rosary and fasting on every
Wednesday and Friday on bread and water. But a beautiful thing Our Lady
invites us to pray for is to pray for our strong faith.
Our Lady recommends us to pray she doesn't want us to just say the
words, to move our lips. Our Lady would like for us from day to day to
open our hearts so that the prayer can really become a joy for us and
that we may succeed to pray with the heart.
Our Lady gave us a beautiful example and she says: "All
of you in your homes have a flower pot, and if every day you put just a
few drops of water into this flower, you will see it grow and become a
beautiful rose." Well, the same example is with our heart. If we put a
few drops of prayer in our hearts every day we'll see it growing
becoming just as beautiful as that rose. And if just for a few days we
don't put the water in for this flower, we will see it vanishing as if
it never existed before.
Lady says it may happen to us very often, when the time of the prayer
arrives that we say, "I'm tired, I can't pray, I'll pray tomorrow." Then
when tomorrow comes we find another excuse. So then day by day we
distance ourselves from prayer and our hearts gets influenced only from a
bad side. But Our Lady said the same as a flower cannot live without
water, we cannot live without God's grace. And Our Lady says that
prayer with the heart you cannot read, write or study. Prayer with the
heart you can only live in order to be able to go forward day by day.
about fasting, Our Lady says those people who are sick, they do not
have to fast on bread and water, but those two days a week they can give
up something they like the most. But when healthy people complain
about headaches, stomachaches or find different kinds of excuses not to
fast, Our Lady says: "If you do fasting out of love towards God me, there is only one thing really missing, and that would be your own strong will."
Our Lady invites us to our total, complete conversion, and she says:
"Dear children, whenever you have a problem or an illness, in those
moments all of you think that Jesus and I are far away from you." But Our Lady says, "No: we are always very close to you! But you, open your heart. And then you will be able to see how much we love you!"
Lady would like us to do a little sacrifice. But she would be most
content if we would give up sinning, and not sin anymore. And Our Lady
says, "I'm giving you my peace and my love. And you bring it to your families, to your friends." Our Lady gives the blessing to all of us and she prays for all of us.
But Our Lady says,
"I will be happier to see you in your families, in your communities,
praying the rosary together. Especially to see parents praying with
their children, children praying with their parents. Because united in
a prayer like this, Satan cannot do any harm to you."
Lady says Satan always tries to disturb us. Satan wants to destroy our
prayers and our peace. Therefore Our Lady invites us to pray a little
bit more. And the best weapon we have is the Rosary in our hands
against Satan. Therefore Our Lady recommends us to have with us always
a little blessed religious article... whether it's a little medal, a
little cross, a little something to help resist Satan better.
Lady recommends us to put the Holy Mass in the first place, because
that's the most important, the holy moment, because it is at the Holy
Mass that the living Jesus comes among us. Therefore Our Lady would
like from us when we go to Church to accept Jesus without any fear,
without any excuse.
Our Lady recommends to us once a month holy Confession and she says:
"Do not go to confession only because you have a sin. But go to
confession in order to ask an advice from your priest who can help you
to go one step forward."
Our Lady is so preoccupied for all the young people in the world.
Because young people are going through a very, very difficult time.
And we can help them, but only with our love and prayer with the
heart.... And Our Lady says: "Dear young people, what today's world is offering to you is passing, is of a passing value."
Through this we can see that Satan is trying to use every free moment
we have wanting to destroy us. And today obviously working through
young people wanting to divide our families.
Our Lady says these moments are moments of great graces. Our Lady
would like us to accept her messages and to live them. Our Lady would
like from us to be the carriers of her peace and to pray for the peace
in the entire world. But in the first place Our Lady invites us to
pray for the peace in our own hearts. And then for peace in our
families, in our communities, and then with that peace to pray for the
peace in the entire world. And Our Lady says if you pray for peace in
the world and you have no peace in your own heart, that prayer doesn't
go that well....
in this very moment Our Lady invites us to pray a little bit more, to
pray for her intentions, for her plans. To take the Holy Bible every
day, to read that and to try to live that during the day. Our Lady
invites us to pray for the Holy Father, the Pope, for our bishops for
our priests. In fact she invites us to pray for our entire church - it
is in need of our prayers.
a special way Our Lady invites us to pray for one of her plans that is
supposed to be fulfilled; realized. But especially recently Our Lady
is so much preoccupied - what she's is suffering for - when she talks
about our young people and our families that are going through a very,
very difficult time.
Lady says she prays for peace. Therefore Our Lady asks us to pray for
the same intentions - to help her with our prayers. Even tonight when
Our Lady comes to me [Vicka says] I will recommend all of you, pray for
all of you - your intentions, your families, but you, also, at 5:40
pm*, you pray, open your heart, and you present to Our Lady all of this.
believe that many of you know that Jacov and I received this beautiful
gift - this beautiful grace - that during an apparition Our Lady took us
by the hand in order to show us paradise, purgatory and hell. In
those three spots we stayed twenty minutes.
We were in Jakov's family home. Our Lady appeared and she said, "Now I will take you with me!"
At that very moment little Jakov said, "Our Lady, take Vicka! She has
many brothers and sisters. I'm the only one in the family!" Jakov
thought they were leaving and never, ever coming back again. Personally
[Vicka says] I thought in that moment, how many hours, how many days,
are we going to go up or down? But Our Lady simply took my right hand,
Jakov's left hand. She was in front of us and she took us with her. A
ceiling opened above us just enough for us to be able to go through
it. Practically within a second we found ourselves in Paradise.
was enormous space. And I saw a kind of light that doesn't exist here
on earth. And I saw a lot of people, and all of them more or less the
same...no fat, no thin, and they had all three colors of their dresses,
grey, yellow and rose....all of them walking around, singing, praying,
and little angels flying over. And Our Lady said, "Look at how joyful,
how content are all these who are in paradise - joy that you cannot
explain with words...joy that doesn't exist here on earth."
is also an enormous space. But in Purgatory you cannot see persons
because of the dense fog. But you can feel and hear that there are
people who are inside who are suffering. Our Lady said, "Those who are
in Purgatory are waiting for our prayers to be able to go to Paradise."
first thing that I saw in Hell was a big fire. Then I saw normal people
entering in the fire. And the deeper they were going into fire they
were being transformed into wild beasts and they would curse more and
more against God. Our Lady said, "Those who are in Hell, they ended up
there according to their own will. So all these people living on earth
doing everything against God, they are already experiencing Hell, they
just continue when they die." And Our Lady said there are many people
who live on earth who believe that once you die everything is over. Our
Lady says that's a big mistake because here on earth we are just passing
through, but the true life continues.
know that everyone of us here came with different issues, problems,
difficulties....but most of all those people who are sick.... [Vicka
said]: I would like you to know that every evening when Our Lady comes
my first words addressed to her are always for and about those people
who are sick, praying that God through Our Lady can give them strength
to be able to endure that gift of the cross they were given - but to
carry that with love.
[Vicka says] we will remain united in a silent prayer. So please
remain silent. That's very important. Our Lady has said silence can do
so many beautiful, great things. Do not be afraid of silence!
Especially, recently, Our Lady said that we people of today talk too
much and we do not pray enough. And Our Lady would like for us to
change this attitude, and to start to pray more and to talk less.
during the silent prayer you hear someone shouting, screaming, yelling,
whatever, trying to disturb - do not pay attention to it. Be focused
in your prayer. Because with our prayer in silence we can defeat any
possible evil that might be circling around...And after this silent
prayer we'll finish our meeting with one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory
Be for all your intentions....
*You can do as Vicka asks also by joining in Silent prayer at <www.marytv.tv> with those praying in Medjugorje as the bells of St. James ring during the time of Our Lady's apparition...
May we learn to pray with the heart, like Vicka, by doing it!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
