Mary TV!
Be connected!

August 1, 2017

 
Dear Family of Mary TV,
 
Words can’t express our gratitude! You came through and responded to our appeal! “Prayer works miracles” Our Lady tells us in her messages, and yours sure did! Today you’ll start witnessing the results of your intercessory prayer in Mary TV’s broadcasting channel window at the top of our website (www.marytv.tv)  as we begin Live Streaming the Youth Festival.
 
The 28th MEDJUGORJE YOUTH FESTIVAL begins today at 6:00pm Medjugorje time (12:00 Noon EST in the US), Tuesday, August 1 – and concludes with a 5:00am Mass on the summit of Cross Mountain on Sunday, August 6, 2017.
 
Here is the link for the schedule (all times are Medjugorje time).
 
 
Our Daily Rosary will be at 15:00 Medjugorje time (3:00 pm) every day of the festival (9:00 am EST in the US).
 
Let’s be active participants in this beautiful festival of faith by praying for everyone involved. For instance, pray that the Lord sends cloud cover to block the sun. Temperatures everyday will be well over 100. Saturday’s forecast is 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42.2 Celsius)!
 
Please spread news of the festival to family and friends!
 
God bless you!
 
Denis

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! Be prayer and a reflection of God’s love for all those who are far from God and God’s commandments. Little children, be faithful and determined in conversion and work on yourselves so that, for you, holiness of life may be authentic; and encourage each other in the good through prayer, so that your life on earth may be more pleasant. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2017)

“Dear children! Be prayer and a reflection of God’s love for all those who are far from God and God’s commandments…”

 
When Our Lady looks at her children who are so far from God, who perhaps have not even heard of God, of Jesus or Mary or the Holy Spirit, who have been so wounded by the world, by their parents, their employers, the media, the educational system, who have been used up and discarded by our consumerist culture…when she looks at them what does she desire for them?

She desires that they see in us “prayer and a reflection of God’s love.” She desires that they see us pray. Why? Because they may have never seen someone pray before. When we are turned towards God in prayer, deeply and from the heart, we point to Him, to His presence, to His reality, to His personal care for us. It touches the heart, and gives hope to those who have no idea that God is real or approachable.
 
And she desires that we pray for them, really intercede for them, even if they never encounter us personally. Our Lady wants us to pray for souls, day in and day out, even if they never see us. Somehow our prayer will win them graces that will open up the reality of God and His love for them. We will only know in heaven…
 
She also desires that we reflect God’s love for them. How can we do this? By just being like Him. We can be kind, generous, patient, respectful, honest, and gentle. Even one smile to a stranger at the right time can mean the difference between despair and life. We can live our family life in such a way that the joy that exudes from us overflows in other people’s lives. We can make the hard decisions to be honest in business, fair in our dealings, good students, strong and dependable employees. All these things can give hope to others, shine the light of God into their lives.

We probably are already doing these things, and we have no idea who we have helped in the process. But one day, we will see with joy the people who found their way to God because we prayed and reflected God’s love in our lives.
 
This week the Youth Festival 2017 takes place in Medjugorje. Our young people need desperately to see prayer and God’s love in us. They need to see it in each other. The Youth Festival is a moment of great hope and conversion for thousands of youth. Let’s pray for them constantly this week!
 
Mary TV will be streaming the Festival all week long. Check out our website for details. It begins on Tuesday, August 1 with the Solemn Opening Ceremony at the Evening Mass – 6:00 pm Medjugorje time!! Join us!! Live!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Dear Family of Mary!
 

“Dear children! Be prayer and a reflection of God’s love for all those who are far from God and God’s commandments. Little children, be faithful and determined in conversion and work on yourselves so that, for you, holiness of life may be authentic; and encourage each other in the good through prayer, so that your life on earth may be more pleasant. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2017)

 
“Be…a reflection of God’s love…”

Our Lady asks us to be a reflection of God’s love. I wanted to have an accurate understanding of what it means to be a reflection of God’s love. Here is the best definition I could find:

 
A reflection is “something that shows the effect, existence, or character of something else – often + of” (Learnersdictionary.com)
 
I think this is what Our Lady is getting at. She wants us to be those who show the effect, existence and/or character of God.
 
She wants us to show the effect of God’s presence in our lives. His love, His forgiveness, His kindness and providence make us peaceful and joyful. His love heals our broken hearts and makes us whole. The Truth He teaches us helps us to love others and show reverence for life. All of these things are the effect of God’s presence in our lives.
 
Through our ongoing prayer life and dependence upon God, we show that God exists. Our relationship with the Lord is real. We relate to Him and He to us, in such a way that one can perceive Him! Testimonies of conversion and miracles in people’s lives show that God is real, and is with us in a concrete way to save us. God exists, because He has loved us and changed us!
 
And God’s character becomes evident when we live as His children. When we love, forgive others, pray and intercede for our neighbors, serve the needs of our families and friends, live honest lives, are chaste and faithful in marriage and single life, we show God’s character. He respects us, each individually, and never forces His way on us or uses us. When we live in His presence and learn His ways, we show this same respect and patient love for our neighbors. This makes His character known.

We reflect God’s love in these ways. Because God is love. When we experience the effect of God’s presence in our lives, encounter God’s existence in our relationship with Him, and become models of His character through imitation of His ways, we ultimately reflect love!! We become what we behold. We become like the One we love! We become one with the One who loves us!

Our Lady said it so well:

“I am with you and I unceasingly pray for you that your life may be a reflection of Heaven here on earth.” (April 25, 2011)


When we are living as a reflection of the Lord, we will be living Heaven on earth!! We will be Heaven on earth for others.

 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

ATLANTA, July 27, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — “The ravages of abortion of our weakest, babes in the womb, as well as the sick, elderly and poor have led to a dearth of morality which includes gender confusion and a host of societal ills. As President Trump continues to drain the swamp, our prayers of gratitude to God remain steadfast as he continues to seek the best for all Americans. This includes his efforts to shore up our military and secure our borders.” — Evangelist Alveda King

Watch video: Evangelist Alveda King: “Thank you President Trump.”

Transcript of video:

Evangelist Alveda King: “Thank you President Trump”

In light of recent developments in America and around the world with what appear to be cataclysmic shifts in the atmosphere, both natural and spiritual, I want to remind my readers and listeners to remain steadfast and focused. Continue to pray for those who are in authority that we can live a peaceful life. Certainly in the White House in America but in every home in America and around the world, let us continue to pray.

I want to personally thank President Donald Trump for remaining steadfast and focused. As we continue to pray for those who are in authority that we can live peaceful lives, let us hold on to that hope that even in these tumultuous times there is peace; it is a peace that passes all understanding.

Friends, continue to pray. Hold up that blood-stained banner. Pray for our president and all who are in authority in America and around the world.

God bless each and every one of you!

Evangelist Alveda C. King
