About twenty four years ago, I took my first pilgrimage to Medjugorje before I was even a Catholic. I took at least six subsequent pilgrimages to Medjugorje. It was only about two months ago that I learned about MaryTV.tv. I am totally hooked. It is my all time favorite website. It is hosted by a lovely, adorable couple, Dennis and Cathy, who broadcast their programs from their basement!!! First of all, they bring the messages, Our Lady of Peace has been giving to the village in Bosnia and then to the world, alive!!! Cathy often reads a message, given by Our Lady now for 38 years, in between the decades of the rosary, based on a theme.
Yesterday, I received a huge blessing from St. Joseph during the daily rosary broadcast on line from their basement studio. The rosary comes alive during the praying of the rosary with Dennis and Cathy, most likely because Our Lady, Queen of Peace and Queen of Divine Mercy joins us as we pray. It is so anointed and truly heavenly, as is Medjugorje. During the five decades, there is live transmission of pilgrimages praying on the various mountain sites of the village.
Some days, I listen and watch the daily English mass, which is always very good. Occasionally, I watch and listen to the evening program of the rosary and Adoration from St. James. With all the challenges facing these United States and the world these days, it is very, very important to have a half hour or an hour of peace, blessings, love, and joy, thanks to the presence of Our Lady in Medjugorje daily, and present throughout the broadcast on MaryTV. The papal envoy to Medjugorje H. Luigi Pezzuto, the Nuncio of Bosnia, addressed Mary as the Queen of Peace and God’s Divine Mercy!!!
In the meantime, mark your calendars on March 17, 2020, to begin the “33 Days to Greater Glory – A Total Consecration to the Father through Jesus Based on the Gospel of John” written by Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC. The consecration to God the Father will be done on The Feast of The Divine Mercy, the Sunday after Easter, April 19, 2020. Fr. Chris and Fr. Michael will join you as you make the consecration to God the Father via EWTN before the Divine Mercy outdoor Mass at Stockbridge, Mass. at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy.
So too, God the Father will be giving a triple blessings for those gathered at the Shrine of Holy Love outside Cleveland, Ohio on that same day. If you cannot be at three places at once, your own parish, Stockbridge, and Holy Love, God the Father has suggested that you send your guardian angel to receive the blessing for you. Since Dennis and Cathy will be in Medjugorje for The Feast of the Divine Mercy, I am sure that this is a VERY , very important day throughout the world where untold blessings will abound.
In case you missed the starting date for the Consecration to St. Joseph, written in the recently published book by Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, to be made on the Feast of St. Joseph, March 19th, you can begin the next consecration to be said on May 1, 2020, The Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.
So, let us begin again. Let us start fresh and anew, this First Sunday of Lent, 2020, and turn our attention to Our Lord, God the Father, our Savior, God the Son, the Holy Spirit, His Spouse, Our Lady, Queen of Peace and God’s Divine Mercy, along with her faithful husband, St. Joseph. These are historic days. Lift your hearts up to the Lord! Sing Him a song a praise and thanksgiving. Her Immaculate Heart will triumph!!!! Praised be Jesus, now and forever. Amen.
