Mary TV: November 21, 2019 Reflection - The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

A Baptism!  Such a wonderful moment of presentation!!


November 21, 2019
The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Dear Family of Mary!

On this day we remember the Presentation of Our Lady in the Temple. Though this event is not part Scripture itself, it is an accepted part of the Catholic Tradition. Our Lady, as a young girl, was offered to God by her parents, Sts. Joachim and Anne. She was taken to the Temple where she lived for a while, serving and learning about the Lord. We can only imagine how precious and loving she was as a child. She must have soaked up everything about the Jewish tradition during that time.

Mary's time in the temple prepared her to be the "Handmaid of the Lord" who later in her life would so readily offer herself to the Father when the Angel Gabriel came to announce the plan of God, that she become the Mother of His Son.

The idea of presentation exists in our own lives as Catholics. At our Baptism, each of us is presented by our parents to the priest, as a representative of the Church, to be received into the family of God. And at our First Communion, after our first Confession, we are presented to the Church in order to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. And then at Confirmation, we are presented to the Bishop, to receive the Holy Spirit as we enter adulthood as Catholics.

These presentations are signal moments in our lives. They tell us who we are as Catholics and they provide for us the necessary saving grace we need to follow Jesus.

Our Lady has spoken several times in her messages about presenting us to her Son. Here is one message:
December 25, 1995 "Dear Children! Today I also rejoice with you and I bring you little Jesus, so that He may bless you. I invite you, dear children, so that your life may be united with Him. Jesus is the King of Peace and only He can give you the peace that you seek. I am with you and I present you to Jesus in a special way, now in this new time in which one should decide for Him. This time is the time of grace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Our Mother tells us that she is presenting us to Jesus "in a special way, now in this new time in which one should decide for Him." It is almost as if she, as our Mother, is presenting us to Jesus, for us to receive from Him the graces we need for this new time. Just as we were presented for Baptism, Holy Communion, and Confirmation, she is presenting us to Jesus for the special graces that we will need in this time we are in.

I don't mean to equate this presentation with a sacrament. No, we have all we need from the Church already. But there are special gifts that we could certainly use, such as an increase of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.   There are also Fruits of the Holy Spirit that we desperately need: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control. Our Lady presents us to Jesus so that He can give us what we need in these days to remain faithful and secure, so that we can help Our Lady to reach all the souls who do not yet know her Son.

So when Our Lady tells us she is presenting us to her Son, we should get excited! It means we are being brought before Jesus to be given Gifts and Fruits!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Mary TV: November 20, 2019 Reflection - I thank you for all the prayers...

(c)Mary TV / Anthony Zubac 2019
Thousands pray with Our Lady for the 38th Anniversary


November 20, 2019
Dear Family of Mary!

June 25, 2006 "Dear children! With great joy in my heart I thank you for all the prayers that, in these days, you offered for my intentions. Know, little children, that you will not regret it, neither you nor your children. God will reward you with great graces and you will merit eternal life. I am near you and thank all those who, through these years, have accepted my messages, have poured them into their life and decided for holiness and peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

This message from 2006 continues to amaze me. This message was given on the 25th Anniversary of Our Lady's apparitions in Medjugorje. Our Lady was looking back over 25 years of her presence in Medjugorje. She was recalling 25 years of apparitions to the visionaries and 25 years of messages to the villagers and the pilgrims.

The Lord had allowed her to come every day for those 25 years, to teach us to pray and to convert. And for those 25 years Our Lady had been building a furnace of prayer in Medjugorje, a powerhouse of prayer that was centered at the parish church, with the Rosary, Holy Mass, Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, Confession, Veneration of the Holy Cross, and countless novenas and special prayers prayed day in and out in Medjugorje!

She also built a prayer program on the mountains, where parishioners and pilgrims climb, do penance, and pray in silence while meditating on the Mysteries of the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross. Truly the entire village is a place of prayer now, due to Our Lady's guiding hand, teaching us all how to pray.

And in this message on the 25th Anniversary, she thanked us all for having prayed for her intentions. Having taught us how to pray, Our Lady was now able to reap the fruit of that prayer. Her intentions for the salvation of souls throughout the world were being lifted up by our prayers.

She told us, and tells us, that we will not regret it! In the future we will not be full of regret at spending our time praying for her intentions. On the contrary, we and our children will be jubilant! We will receive great rewards from God for having helped Mary in her task of saving souls in these days. In fact, by cooperating with Our Lady's plan we will merit eternal life!!!

Eternal life!!! Nothing matters more than attaining eternal life with God in Heaven. Nothing compares to living forever with our God.

I believe we are still called to pray for Our Lady's intentions, 13 years later. The work is not finished. In fact, if we look at the world, it would seem the job will never end! But it will. We are on the winning side with Mary. She has come to change the world. And we can help her still, by praying for her intentions.

Denis and I find that we now keep the Mary TV channel going all day long in our home. And when our work permits, we pray along with the rosaries, pray along with the English Mass, pray along with the whole evening program including adoration...we just pray along with the parish all day long. While doing this we are praying for Our Lady's intentions in these days. And it is wonderful!

God bless all of you, our shipmates, for making Mary TV a reality. And may we all accept Our Lady's messages, and pour them into our lives, deciding for holiness and peace and responding to her call!!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Mary TV: November 19, 2019 Reflection - A desire for eternal life...

(c)Mary TV


November 19, 2019
Dear Family of Mary!

I have noticed that often when Our Lady speaks about eternity or eternal life, she also speaks about conversion. Take this message as an example:

March 25, 2008 "Dear children! I call you to work on your personal conversion. You are still far from meeting with God in your heart. Therefore, spend all the more time in prayer and Adoration of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, for Him to change you and to put into your hearts a living faith and a desire for eternal life. Everything is passing, little children, only God is not passing. I am with you and I encourage you with love. Thank you for having responded to my call."

There is a connection between conversion and experiencing the reality of eternity. There are many testimonies in which someone living a life without God has an accident, a near death experience, or a dream in which he or she encounters the reality of Heaven and Hell. The experience is so deep and so real that when the person wakes up or is brought back from the brink, he or she has a change of life, a conversion to faith in God.
It is also documented that the Vicka and Jakov, visionaries in Medjugorje, were taken to Heaven, Hell and Purgatory by Our Lady. This experience was important for them, so that they would be steadfast and serious about their task of sharing Our Lady's presence. They needed the conversion that comes from experiencing eternity, and Our Lady wanted them to be witnesses of eternity for others.

Eternity is a reality that cannot be explained or described. It is the absence of time. It is a final destination from which one can never leave. Eternity never ends. We who live on earth, with its rotation which makes day and night and its revolution around the sun which makes the seasons, have a built-in sense of motion and change. Things begin and end for us. We cannot conceive of eternity. But when the veil is pulled back even a little bit, we can begin to imagine it.

Our Lady wants us to really grasp eternity. She knows that we need a firm grasp of it in order to live our lives for God. As she said: "...spend all the more time in prayer and Adoration of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, for Him to change you and to put into your hearts a living faith and a desire for eternal life." The more time we spend with Jesus, the more we will comprehend eternity. Have you ever noticed that after an hour of silent adoration you feel like you have been somewhere else? You have been in a time warp! You have been touching eternity in Jesus. As we spend time with Jesus in this way, we will realize we are made for Heaven. And we will do all we can to be ready for Heaven.

"Everything is passing, little children, only God is not passing." Everything on this earth is going only one way, and that is to its natural end. But we have been created with immortal souls, we do not follow the rest of creation in dying away. We are made to live forever and ever and ever. It is our choice where we spend that forever. Will it be with God? Yes, because we are on the way of conversion!
And we have the best help of all. "I am with you and I encourage you with love." Our Lady is with us to help us to choose God and with her, find our way home. May we grow in our desire for eternal life! May we grow in our desire for God!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

PS. The testimony of Regina Collins in our Fruit of Medjugorje Archive is a nice example of someone who encounters Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and is drawn into eternity for a moment. Regina Collins went to Medjugorje in a state of deep depression and anger over her life. But she encountered Jesus and Mary in such a way that her heart was completely healed. Fruit of Medjugorje Episode 182.

Mary TV: November 18, 2019 Reflection - To bring you all to Heaven unto God

November 18, 2019
The Dedication of the Basilicas of Sts. Peter and Paul, Apostles
St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

Dear Family of Mary!

We are in the last two weeks of this Liturgical Year - 2019. The readings we are hearing at Mass deal with the last things, with death, judgment and eternity. This makes us grow increasingly aware of our own future. We all have a future. But what that future will be depends on how radically we have chosen to follow Jesus.

I hope to use these last two weeks as a time to reflect on what Our Lady has said to us about our own personal futures. She is not shy to talk about this reality. Maybe, with her help, we can reflect on this most important aspect of our lives.

In 1986, she said to us:
November 27, 1986 "Dear children! Again today I call you to consecrate your life to me with love, so I am able to guide you with love. I love you, dear children, with a special love and I desire to bring you all to Heaven unto God. I want you to realize that this life lasts briefly compared to the one in Heaven. Therefore, dear children, decide again today for God. Only that way will I be able to show how much you are dear to me and how much I desire all to be saved and to be with me in Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call."

"Dear children! Again today I call you to consecrate your life to me with love, so I am able to guide you with love..."

Our Lady begins this message by calling us to consecrate ourselves, our entire lives, all of our selves, to her. She wants to be able to guide us, with love. But she can't do it without our consecration to her. It is easy to overlook this call to consecration. Most of us have done some kind of consecration to Mary in our past. But we may be forgetting it in our day to day lives. 

We want to know what she has to say about Heaven. But we won't get very far on our own steam with our own ideas. We have to surrender to Mary every day and let her lead us towards Heaven and unity with God. We have to make our consecration every day!!

So before we go any further, let's pray this short consecration to Our Lady. Say it with simplicity and trust. It will prepare us to hear the rest of the message:

Act of Consecration to Mary
O my Queen, O my Mother, I love you and give myself to you. I give to you this day my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole self. Since I am yours, keep me and guard me as your child forever. Amen.
I think if we memorize this little consecration and pray it often throughout the day, we will begin to experience the power of living under Mary's guidance.

"I love you, dear children, with a special love and I desire to bring you all to Heaven unto God..."

Once we have given ourselves to Our Lady, she will show us her special love. That love brings us to Heaven unto God! The fruit of our consecration to Mary will be an infilling of her love, which will change us. Her love will teach us what love really is, and we will begin to love as well. That love will help us to draw closer to the reality of Heaven.

"I want you to realize that this life lasts briefly compared to the one in Heaven..."

As we grow in Our Mother's school of love, we will begin to have her eternal perspective on our lives. We will begin to comprehend Heaven in all its glory, and what the word "forever" really means. We will be able to see our earthly lives in comparison to the "forever life" of Heaven, and we will loosen our tight grip on the present. In comparison to "forever" what are a few years on earth?

"Therefore, dear children, decide again today for God. Only that way will I be able to show how much you are dear to me and how much I desire all to be saved and to be with me in Heaven..."

The bottom line is that if we are living our lives in consecration to Our Lady, and we begin to see our lives on earth as only a short preparation for eternity, we will be ready each day to decide for God! We will want to live for God, because our Mother lives for God, and we want to follow her lead. Her desire for our salvation will be an impetus for our own change of heart. We will want what she wants. And she wants us to become holy and live with her in God. Once we have done that, we will fall in love with God ourselves, and that is of course, Heaven. We want to be with God in Heaven forever!!

So today, let's consecrate ourselves to Mary, and see what happens. If we do it every day we will really see what happens!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

You should always think of His love and His sacrifice.

Amen.

Mary TV: November 14, 2019 Reflection - Bless and seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit


(c)Mary TV 2018  


November 14, 2019
Dear Family of Mary!

May 25, 2001 "Dear children! At this time of grace, I call you to prayer. Little children, you work much but without God's blessing. Bless and seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead you at this time so that you may comprehend and live in the grace of this time. Convert, little children, and kneel in the silence of your hearts. Put God in the center of your being so that, in that way, you can witness in joy the beauty that God continually gives in your life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

 
"Bless and seek the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to lead you at this time so that you may comprehend and live in the grace of this time...."

First Reading for Mass, November 14, 2019 - Wisdom 7:22 to 8:1
I learned both what is secret and what is manifest,
for wisdom, the fashioner of all things, taught me.
For in her there is a spirit that is intelligent, holy,
unique, manifold, subtle,
mobile, clear, unpolluted,
distinct, invulnerable, loving the good,
keen, irresistible, beneficent,
humane, steadfast, sure,
free from anxiety,
all-powerful, overseeing all,
and penetrating through all spirits
that are intelligent and pure and most subtle.
For wisdom is more mobile than any motion;
because of her pureness she pervades and penetrates all things.
For she is a breath of the power of God,
and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty;
therefore nothing defiled gains entrance into her.
For she is a reflection of eternal light,
a spotless mirror of the working of God,
and an image of his goodness.
Though she is but one, she can do all things,
and while remaining in herself, she renews all things;
in every generation she passes into holy souls
and makes them friends of God, and prophets;
for God loves nothing so much as the man who lives with wisdom.
For she is more beautiful than the sun,
and excels every constellation of the stars.
Compared with the light she is found to be superior,
for it is succeeded by the night,
but against wisdom evil does not prevail.
She reaches mightily from one end of the earth to the other,
and she orders all things well.
(Wis 7:21 to 8:1)

"Convert, little children, and kneel in the silence of your hearts. Put God in the center of your being so that, in that way, you can witness in joy the beauty that God continually gives in your life..."

Mary TV: November 13, 2019 Reflection -Thank God for all the graces which God has given you.


(c)Mary TV 2019 


November 13, 2019
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini

Dear Family of Mary!


Today's Gospel: Luke 17:11-19

As Jesus continued his journey to Jerusalem, he traveled through Samaria and Galilee. As he was entering a village, ten lepers met him. They stood at a distance from him and raised their voice, saying, "Jesus, Master! Have pity on us!" And when he saw them, he said, "Go show yourselves to the priests." As they were going, they were cleansed. And one of them, realizing he had been healed, returned, glorifying God in a loud voice; and he fell at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. He was a Samaritan. Jesus said in reply, "Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God?" Then he said to him, "Stand up and go; your faith has saved you."  (Luke 17:11-19)
Only 1 out of 10 is not a very good showing. Only one leper returned to thank Jesus. The other 9 went dutifully to the priests to show them they were healed and to be allowed back into Hebrew society. But they didn't return to thank their healer. Maybe that process of rejoining society was so wonderful that they just forgot about Jesus. And maybe the Samaritan who would never be let back into Hebrew society had nowhere else to go? And so, he came back to Jesus, knowing from whence his healing came.

It is very easy to think that the good things that happen to us come from others, like our family, our coworkers, our friends, etc. But ultimately all that we have and are comes from God. It seems important to not let our personal relationships or societal relationships cloud our thinking. Everything is from God and we can't earn any of it. It is free gift, given from our loving Creator. So, like the Samaritan Leper, let's return to Jesus, constantly. Let's fall at His feet and give thanks for everything!

Here are six messages from Our Lady that speak eloquently about giving thanks to God. We could use them as meditation during a Rosary today.

October 3, 1985 "Dear children! I wish to tell you to thank God for all the graces which God has given you. For all the fruits thank the Lord and glorify him! Dear children, learn to give thanks in little things and then you will be able to give thanks also for the big things. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 1988 "Dear children! Today I invite you all to rejoice in the life which God gives you. Little children, rejoice in God, the Creator, because He has created you so wonderfully. Pray that your life be joyful thanksgiving which flows out of your heart like a river of joy. Little children, give thanks unceasingly for all that you possess, for each little gift which God has given you, so that a joyful blessing always comes down from God upon your life. Thank you for having responded to my call."

April 25, 1989 "Dear children! I am calling you to a complete surrender to God. Let everything that you possess be in the hands of God. Only in that way shall you have joy in your heart. Little children, rejoice in everything that you have. Give thanks to God because everything is God's gift to you. That way in your life you shall be able to give thanks for everything and discover God in everything even in the smallest flower. Thank you for having responded to my call."

 
September 25, 1989 "Dear children! Today I invite you to give thanks to God for all the gifts you have discovered in the course of your life and even for the least gift that you have perceived. I give thanks with you and want all of you to experience the joy of these gifts. And I want God to be everything for each one of you. And then, little children, you can grow continuously on the way of holiness. Thank you for responding to my call."

 
July 25, 2001 "Dear children! In this time of grace, I call you to come even closer to God through your personal prayer. Make good use of the time of rest and give your soul and your eyes rest in God. Find peace in nature and you will discover God the Creator Whom you will be able to give thanks to for all creatures; then you will find joy in your heart. Thank you for having responded to my call."

August 25, 2003 "Dear children! Also today I call you to give thanks to God in your heart for all the graces which He gives you, also through the signs and colors that are in nature. God wants to draw you closer to Himself and moves you to give Him glory and thanks. Therefore, little children, I call you anew to pray, pray, pray and do not forget that I am with you. I intercede before God for each of you until your joy in Him is complete. Thank you for having responded to my call."

 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
