Dear Mary TV family,
A year ago, after Mary TV streamed his apparitions live from Medjugorje, Ivan told us Our Lady had been pleased with how her messages had been spread and he believed it would be done that way in the future! He said Our Lady had prayed over everyone connected through the internet the same as she had prayed over all those kneeling with him in his chapel, and when she blessed religious objects, the religious objects people connected through the internet had for her to bless were blessed the same as those placed right in front of her in his chapel!
Our Lady told Vicka during an apparition 12 years ago that MARY TV's plan to build a TV station in Medjugorje was good, but we should be patient and not be in a hurry. We could get ready slowly and she herself would tell us when to begin – she would lead the way!
She is! Our Lady gave us one of the leading TV engineers in the world. Tom Matasso, a technical expert for NBC, built the first all digital TV station in the US. He is considered by many the leading technical expert on television in the Church today. And recently Our Lady brought to MARY TV Christina Georgotas, who helped produce "Live with Regis and Kelly." Before coming to MARY TV Christina was the Creative Producer for Kelly Ripa's New York production company. Her video blogs from the youth festival can be seen on MARY TV's web page. *
We've been asked to return to Vienna this coming November 17th to stream Ivan's apparition and Cardinal Schoenborn's homily in St. Stephens Cathedral during an evening of prayer celebrating 30 years of apparitions. We hope to be streaming also in Spanish. Mark your calendar (and tell your friends)! Nearly half a million people were present for Ivan and Marija's apparitions through MARY TV's streaming from the Cathedral last September. Milona von Habsburg has again offered to be our translator.
After filming Ivan's apparitions in Medjugorje recently I told him I thought it was time MARY TV began streaming his apparitions every day – live – to the world!
Though our building in Medjugorje is finished (see picture below), three of the four TV studios still need to be completed. In the future we will be able to send everything we're now sending to computers through the internet to TV stations for broadcasting around the world! Help us give this gift to Our Lady!
Years ago Jelena confirmed to me that one day Our Lady told her that Satan had offered to give back to God the rest of the world in exchange for Medjugorje. He is terrified of God's plan unfolding there. Twenty Seven years ago Blessed John Paul ll said, "Medjugorje is the continuation and fulfillment of Fatima." What could be the fulfillment of Fatima? "Nevertheless in the end my Immaculate Heart will Triumph." Medjugorje represents the last battle.
Two days ago our Mother called to us: "Dear children! Today I call you to pray andfast for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan. Here I began with this parish and invited the entire world. Many have responded, but there is an enormous number of those who do not want to hear or accept my call. Therefore, you who have said 'yes', be strong and resolute. Thank you for having responded to my call" (August 25, 2011).
It is only your monthly donations that allow us to continue. Please keep them up. Help us spread Our Lady's urgent call to the world! Mail you check to: Mary TV, PO Box 899, Notre Dame, IN 46556. (And you can also donate on our web page (www.marytv.tv>) through PayPal. )
God bless you!
PS. The following is of particular interest in light of Our Lady's message today – lamenting the "enormous number of those who do not want to hear or accept my call." I held back for many years from publishing this testimony (link below), hoping Major-General Prendergast would soften his language…but he wouldn't change a word because, he said, what he had written was the truth….

* I've learned from her mother that Christina, who has been praying the rosary with us over the internet for the past 12 months, refers to Cathy and me as "the Regis and Kelly of the Marian world!" Cathy says, "The Red Green Show of the Marian world" would be more like it! You can join us live at 10:00 am EDT at <www.marytv.tv > (though the rosary can also be prayed with us at anytime during the day in the Rosary Archives. Every day we consecrate the internet to Our Lady of Medjugorje!
