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: January 29, 2018 Reflection - A Time of Prayer
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2018

Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! May this time be for you a time of prayer, so that the Holy Spirit, through prayer, may descend upon you and give you conversion. Open your hearts and read the Sacred Scripture, that through the testimonies you also may be closer to God. Above everything, little children, seek God and the things of God and leave earthly ones to the earth, because Satan is attracting you to the dust and sin. You are called to holiness and created for Heaven; therefore, seek Heaven and the things of Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call." (January 25, 2018)
A time of prayer. "May this be for you a time of prayer." Our Lady calls us to see these days we are in as a time of prayer, an opportunity to consciously decide for prayer and to live prayer. She has called us to prayer so many times over the past 37 years. But somehow I feel that we must see this time as a special time of prayer. There is an anointing for prayer, a move on God's part to bless us in prayer. We are called to this time of prayer.
I also feel that this time of prayer will be a huge and wonderful gift for each of us. I believe God wants to heal us and give us His love in a powerful way, through the Holy Spirit. We will receive an anointing, which is what the Holy Spirit does. An anointing for conversion. An anointing for change. An anointing for wholeness and life.
I found several messages in which Our Lady speaks about prayer, and I find them compelling. Maybe we can receive a deeper understanding of prayer from them, and prepare ourselves for this time of prayer. I am really excited about it!!!
July 25, 2011 "Dear children! May this time be for you a time of prayer and silence. Rest your body and spirit, may they be in God's love. Permit me, little children, to lead you, open your hearts to the Holy Spirit so that all the good that is in you may blossom and bear fruit one hundred fold. Begin and end the day with prayer with the heart. Thank you for having responded to my call."
July 25, 2009 "Dear children! May this time be a time of prayer for you. Thank you for having responded to my call."
September 25, 2013 "Dear children! Also today I call you to prayer. May your relationship with prayer be a daily one. Prayer works miracles in you and through you, therefore, little children, may prayer be a joy for you. Then your relationship with life will be deeper and more open and you will comprehend that life is a gift for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call."August 25, 2015 "Dear children! Also today I am calling you to be prayer. May prayer be for you the wings for an encounter with God. The world is in a moment of trial, because it forgot and abandoned God. Therefore, you, little children, be those who seek and love God above all. I am with you and I am leading you to my Son, but you must say your 'yes' in the freedom of children of God. I intercede for you and I love you, little children, with an endless love. Thank you for having responded to my call."September 25, 2016 "Dear children! Today, I am calling you to prayer. May prayer be life to you. Only in this way will your heart be filled with peace and joy. God will be near you and you will feel Him in your heart as a friend. You will speak with Him as with someone whom you know and, little children, you will have a need to witness, because Jesus will be in your heart and you, united in Him. I am with you and love all of you with my motherly love. Thank you for having responded to my call."June 25, 2012 "Dear children! With great hope in the heart, also today I call you to prayer. If you pray, little children, you are with me and you are seeking the will of my Son and are living it. Be open and live prayer and, at every moment, may it be for you the savor and joy of your soul. I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call."
May we all decide for prayer in this special time of prayer! Mother, help us to pray!
