Duc in altum! “Put out into the deep!”
These are the words of Christ to Simon Peter, commanding him to lower his nets into the sea. Peter did as the Lord told him, but not before expressing doubts, for he and his companions had been fishing all that night, without success. But, when Peter and his companions hauled up their nets, the nets began to break, so great was the catch of fish. Astonished at the miracle, St. Peter cast himself at the feet of the Lord: “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!”
These are also the words that Pope St. John Paul II chose to begin and end his apostolic letter Novo Millenio Ineunte, in which he celebrated the dawn of the third millennium by urging Christians to renew their commitment to the Gospel…
Sincerely yours in Christ,

December 31, 2018
New Years Eve
 
Dear Family of Mary!


We at Mary TV want to thank all of you for your participation in our broadcasts from Medjugorje over the past year. It’s no small thing choosing to be with Our Lady in Medjugorje – even if our only option is by way of the digital sea: “My Son promised me that evil will never win, because you, the souls of the just, are here!” (11/2/14)  To be with Our Lady, in Medjugorje, even over the internet, adds strength to her intercession!  Jesus hears our prayers!

We have prayed together “live” (and archived) in Medjugorje:
 
Daily Divine Mercy Chaplets
Daily Rosary with Denis and Cathy,
Daily Evening Rosary with St. James Parish,
Daily Evening International Mass with St. James Parish,
Daily English Mass in Medjugorje
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar at least twice a week,
Climb up Apparition Hill on Sunday’s with the parish!

And we have attended “live” or viewed later many special events:

Mirjana’s 2nd of the month Apparitions
Mirjana’s March 18 Apparition
The Youth Festival in August
The Cenacolo Christmas Play
Weekly Testimonies from pilgirms on Fruit of Medjugorje
Special talks by Archbishop Hoser
Sanctuary Snippets from Fr. Leon
 
And of course we have the possibility to pray “live” at Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain with our live camera, taking personal time with Our Lady and Jesus in those holy spots.
 
Our prayer together in Medjugorje is powerful. Our Lady is calling us to help her through our prayers and sacrifices to bring about the peace that she longs for in the world. This is a work of mercy and joy!

Thank you to all of you who make the work of Mary TV possible, through your prayers, sacrifices, and financial support. We could not do it without you. Together we are helping Mother Mary reach her children all over the world!

We have come to the end of 2018! With thanksgiving to God, we want to pray in the New Year! Tonight we will have an opportunity to pray along with the parish, bringing in the New Year and honoring Our Lady as Mother of God! Here is the schedule: (all times are Medjugorje time)


3:00 pm – Hour of Mercy
4:00 pm – The Daily Rosary with Denis and Cathy
5:00 pm – The Evening Rosary with St. James Parish
6:00 pm – International Mass with the Parish
10:00 pm – Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in St. James Church
11:30 pm – Midnight Mass with Archbishop Henryk Hoser (and two more bishops)
 
So you see, we will pray in the New Year!!!

Thank you again to all of you!! May we stay the course in 2019, growing ever more connected to Our Lady and her plans, praying unceasingly for her plans and serving her Son with our lives!

Blessed New Year!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
Cathy Nolan and the whole Mary TV Team!

We’ve got $10,000 in Matching Funds – Double Your Impact!
The last days of December are here, dark and short as ever. But there’s some good news, too.
In these last days before New Year’s Eve, you’ve got a chance to make your charitable donation go twice as far. 
For every dollar we receive at Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, a generous donor has agreed to match that dollar and make it two, for up to $10,000. We’re still far from that mark, and we need $40,000 to reach our goal for 2018.
We are a small organization with a big impact.  Will you help us?
Your gift will go a long way for victims of forced population control simply by helping us keep up the pressure through public advocacy. 
Or, donations can be marked for our Save a Girl Campaign and go straight to needy families in China, where $25 a month could help a mother stand up against often intense pressure to abort or abandon her baby girl.  These mothers and girls need our help!  Or you can direct the funds to Save a Widow from poverty and abandonment.

One of many destitute widows grateful for our Save a Widow Campaign.
If you’ve already given, Thank You.  If not, please remember, if you donate now, even a small gift will be doubled. 
We are a 501(c)(3) donor supported non-profit.  Your gift is tax-deductible under U.S. tax law.  And it’s doubled because of our $5,000 in matching funds!
Thank you. Your generosity is what keeps us going! 
 
Reggie Littlejohn
President, Women’s Rights Without Frontiers

YES, I WANT TO HELP END GENDERCIDE AND FORCED ABORTION IN CHINA!

Your donation enables Women’s Rights Without Frontiers to continue to be a voice for the voiceless women and children of China. This huge effort comes at a cost. We need your support. Please give as generously as you can. Every donation makes a difference!
