Adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament – March 31, 2020
St. James Church, Medjugorje

Dear Mary TV Family,
 
Tomorrow, April 1st, we begin a novena together (April 1 to 10):

“Novena to the Queen of Peace, Queen of Divine Mercy: A CRY TO GOD!”     

 

It will be led by Fr. Leon Pereira from Medjugorje.  Each day Tom will pray that day’s novena prayers in the channel. Or you can pray it with Fr. Leon in Mary TV’s Novena window:   https://marytv.tv/novenas/ 

“Cry out the name of the Heavenly Father” Our Lady tells us…  I desire for the darkness, and the shadow of death which wants to encompass and mislead you, to be driven away. I desire for you to feel the joy of the blessing of God’s promise. You, children of man, you are God’s children – you are my children. Therefore, my children, set out on the ways on which my love leads you…” 

 
Our Lady told us in her last Anniversary message: “I am preparing you for the new times that you may be firm in faith and persevering in prayer, so that the Holy Spirit may work through you and renew the face of the earth…You, little children, be my extended hands and proudly go with God!” (June 25, 2019)
 
No wonder the enemy is so terrified.  Our Lady actually equates what the Holy Spirit did through her with what the Holy Spirit now wants to do through us!  “Trust as I have trusted when it was said to me that I will bring the blessing of the promise. May out of your hearts, from your lips, always come forth ‘May your will be done!’ Therefore, trust and pray so that I can intercede for you before the Lord, for him to give you the Heavenly Blessing and fill you with the Holy Spirit.  Then He will be able to help all those who do not know the Lord – you, apostles of my love, will help them to call Him ‘Father’ with complete trust.”
 
Let’s decide for holiness, be Our Lady’s extended hands and proudly go with God: “Be courageous and decide for holiness.  You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (March 25, 2020)
 
Let’s do it.
 
God bless you!

PS  The Divine Mercy Novena begins on Good Friday, the day this novena ends.  We’ll be praying it at Mary TV.   This is going to be the most powerful Divine Mercy Sunday in our lifetime!!!! All our prayers are leading up to it!

CLEARWATER, Fla., March 31, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ — For the second time in less than a week, Children of God for Life is calling out the pharmaceutical industry for the use of aborted fetal cell lines in potential Covid-19 vaccines.

On March 25th, the organization exposed Moderna’s use of the aborted fetal cell line HEK 293 and the morally produced version by Sanofi Pasteur. This time it’s Janssen Pharmaceutical, owned by Johnson and Johnson, that is using their PER C6 Ad5 technology,(1) derived from an aborted baby’s retinal tissue. Dr. Alex van der Eb revealed the information on this abortion at FDA hearings in 2001:(2)

“So I isolated retina from a fetus, from a healthy fetus as far as could be seen, of 18 weeks old. There was nothing special with a family history or the pregnancy was completely normal up to the 18 weeks, and it turned out to be a socially indicated abortus – abortus provocatus, and that was simply because the woman wanted to get rid of the fetus… what was written down was unknown father, and that was, in fact, the reason why the abortion was requested.”
Adding insult to injury, Dr. van der Eb went on to admit:
“PER C6 was made just for pharmaceutical manufacturing of adenovirus vectors… And then pharmaceutical industry standard. I realize that this sounds a bit commercial, but PER C6 were made for that particular purpose.”
Not only are there moral problems with using aborted fetal cells, but the PER C6 Ad5 technology also has safety concerns that have been raised with the FDA as well.
“Residual DNA in vaccines derived from tumorigenic cells, including those transformed by Ad5, can pose potential risks to the vaccine recipient in two respects: oncogenicity and infectivity. Each of these biological properties must be considered and evaluated for each cell substrate.”(3)
Vinnedge noted there is not one FDA-approved vaccine in the US using this cell line, though several did take interest when it was announced in 2001. One of those companies was Merck who tried the cell line in a new HIV vaccine but ended the project in 2007 when the vaccine proved to be ineffective.(4)

“This is about as irresponsible as the industry can get,” stated Debi Vinnedge, Executive Director of Children of God for Life. “We have a worldwide pandemic where millions of people are in need of treatment and prevention of disease. Yet Johnson and Johnson is choosing to produce a vaccine that a large number of people of good conscience will refuse due to the aborted fetal cells!”(5)

In their own Code of Business Conduct, Johnson & Johnson states that “We believe acting ethically and responsibly is not only the right thing to do, but also the right thing to do for our business. Our Johnson & Johnson Code of Business Conduct ensures that we hold ourselves and how we do business to a high standard, allowing us to fulfill our obligations to the many stakeholders we serve.”

But their use of aborted fetal material in consumer medicines is far from the high ethical standards or concern for their customer whom they are claiming to serve. The irony of what they are doing in using aborted fetal cell lines is not lost to the casual observer.

“How despicable that a company whose success was largely acquired from its’ products for living babies is trying to capitalize on the remains of a deliberately murdered one,” she added.

Periods of disruption and turmoil have a tendency to expose our true selves. The insights thus gleaned are not always comforting. For instance, a man may feel convicted that he is especially courageous, but placed suddenly in a situation of danger, he may find—to his surprise—that he has turned tail and run.
We have entered a period of disruption. A pandemic is sweeping the globe. Already tens of thousands have died, and it seems likely that tens of thousands more will die before this is over. Whereas just a month ago it seemed that the world was safely under control, now everything is in flux. A month ago, we were comfortably making plans for the following month, or year, or even the next five years; now we are wondering what the next day will hold. For many, the fact that modern medical science has not—as we naively thought—permanently banished the spectre of large outbreaks of communicable disease has come as a shock to the system. We are being tried in the crucible of disruption. . .

Bryan-College Station, Texas

During last fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign, an expectant mother visited the 40 Days for Life headquarters in Texas…

…seeking an abortion.

Though the building hasn’t been an abortion facility in nearly seven years, the abortion-bound mom thought she was visiting Planned Parenthood.

40 Days for Life Director of Medical Affairs & Education Dr. Haywood Robinson was there to help. He and another headquarters team member were able to connect the woman with some Spanish-speaking pro-lifers who empowered her to choose life.

Earlier this month, the mother visited the 40 Days for Life headquarters again–this time to show off her newborn baby!

Guatemala City, Guatemala

Prior to the suspension of public vigils, a pro-abortion journalist interrogated 40 Days for Life volunteers in Guatemala City over whether they want to see post-abortive women sent to jail.

The reporter was surprised to learn that one of the vigil participants she was questioning was herself post-abortive. That prayer warrior shared her testimony and her regret, silencing the pro-abortion journalist.

“The reporter was stunned,” said 40 Days for Life Coordinator of Latin American Affairs Lourdes Varela. “She said the media sells a different idea. She was touched and thoughtful when she left.”

Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sin is covered. Blessed is the one to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.

— Romans 4:7-8

Our Most Gracious Heavenly Father, thank you for your amazing grace that saved a wretch like me. I come against the enemy of my soul who would have me feel cast down and dejected. Lord, keep your children from falling prey to the accusations of the father of lies. Turn our mourning into dancing and may we bring praise to you as we give testimony of Your healing and restoration in our lives.

Jesus Divine Mercy
Jesus, I trust in You
March 31, 2020

Dear Family of Mary!

Our Lady has been drawing us close to the Heart of her Divine Son, Jesus, for all of these years in Medjugorje.  She has been slowly revealing to us the Divine Mercy, the love of her Son Jesus for us!  But we are slow to understand.  Listen to this message from last year;

March 02, 2019 “Dear children, I call you ‘apostles of my love’. I am showing you my Son who is the true peace and the true love. As a mother, through the mercy of God, I desire to lead you to Him. My children, this is why I am calling you to reflect on yourselves, starting out from my Son, that you look to Him with the heart and that you may see with the heart where you are and where your life is going. My children, I am calling you to comprehend that it is, thanks to my Son, that you live – through His love and sacrifice. You are asking of my Son to be merciful to you and I am calling you to mercy. You are asking of Him to be good to you and to forgive you, and for how long am I imploring you, my children, to forgive and to love all the people whom you meet? When you comprehend my words with the heart, you will comprehend and come to know the true love and you will be able to be apostles of that love, my apostles, my dear children. Thank you.”


This is an appeal from our Mother.  She begs us to realize that her call is important, and indeed most necessary.  Her call is to comprehend the Mercy of her Son, and to live it.

As we continue to live in the darkness of this Pandemic, we are becoming acutely aware of how much we need the depend on the Mercy of God.  We are helpless in the face of the darkness engulfing our world in the form of disease.  But Our Lady wants us to know that the Divine Mercy, her Son Jesus, is the answer to all our fears.


I want to share a beautiful homily given on Sunday, March 29, 2020, just two days ago, by Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy.  Fr. Alar speaks to us of the power of the Divine Mercy Image, and urges us to place the image on our front door and in our homes, with great reverence and trust.  He urges us to pray the Chaplet, and to take this time of quarantine to draw close to God.  I have included a link to the video of the Mass on Sunday as well.

Holy Mass from the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy
Sunday, March 29, 2020

Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, Stockbridge, MA
Well, Good Morning!
 
I often travel around the country and, oftentimes, I speak with young, grade-school children or youth; and I always like to ask them, “What is the shortest verse in all of scripture?” And, Father Anthony just read it: “Jesus wept.” It is the shortest verse in all of scripture.
 
Now I think it applies to what we’re going through here in the world right now today. I hear from time to time – if you go onto the Internet – that God wants this, that God is slamming mankind for sins. And in some ways, yes, sin obviously has consequences, and we reap what we sow. There is no question about that. But in God’s Ordained Will, He doesn’t want sickness and death. Did He want Lazarus to die? Well, if He did, He wouldn’t have wept.
 
So, you see, this is a consequence. He does not, in His Ordained Will, want the coronavirus or any deaths from it; but, in His Permissive Will, He allows it. Why? Because, again, we were given Free Will. But Death is not the final word. The Resurrection is. So, we see what He did with Lazarus. Was Death the final word? No! Death wasn’t the final word. What did Jesus do? He came and He resurrected Lazarus. That is Life. That is what has the final word.
 
You know, we often, in religious life, refer to the term, “Are you a Martha? Or are you a Mary?” And what we mean by that is, are you the kind that spends more time out and about in your ministry, or in silence of prayer in the chapel? Now, from time to time, I’ve been accused of being a little bit more of a Martha than a Mary. And, I understand that; it’s very true in some sense. But we must find our Mary time.
 
Now, why do I bring this up? Because earlier in a different passage we heard Jesus say Mary has found the better half. “Martha don’t worry, Mary is doing something beautiful.” Contemplative. Quiet. In prayer. But I call this passage, The Vindication of Martha. Because, what is Martha doing? She ran out to meet Jesus. When it said, Mary sat at home.
 
Well, here’s the point. If you’ve been like me, and been a Martha, for too long maybe – and I mean, that’s not a bad thing – maybe now is our time to be a Mary. God wants to bring a greater good out of even these worse tragedies, like the coronavirus. But God’s giving us an opportunity to be a little bit more like Mary, to stay at home.
 
Now, does that mean we want to be confined? Of course, not. But make the most of it. Time with your family. Time with God. Time in prayer. Self-reflection. These are all things we never have time to do. And now, God’s giving us that opportunity. With sports being canceled right now – I’m guilty. I’d probably be trying to watch a little bit of the NCAA tournament. I try every year to watch a little bit of it. Not this year. Let’s use this time in prayer. Restaurants are closed. Events are closed. So, this is your time.
 
Now, in why we’re home, we’ve been sending out this video. You may have received it. If you haven’t, you can find it on our webpage at https://www.thedivinemercy.org/. Just scroll down on the left under “Articles.” And it’s called, “Seal The Doorposts!” And I want to finish with a couple words about this, because it applies again to being home. Just like we talked about Mary, and just what you are experiencing right now.
 
I bring this up because this video has given – it’s a short 4-minute video – and it is giving instruction that you, as the laity, by the Catechism have the ability to bless certain items. And the image of Divine Mercy is one item you can actually bless by making the sign of the cross over the image, and saying, “Lord God, I seek your blessing upon this image. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” And place that image on your doorpost; on your outside door – or inside, if you cannot do it outside.
 
This is very important, we believe, because in Exodus 12, remember the Angel of Death that passed from the door, house to house, and would strike death and, if they found the blood, the blood of the slain lamb on the doorposts, they would pass by that marked house. Now, if that was the power of the blood of the lamb, how much more power do we have in the Blood, the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ? If we place this image upon our doors – or again inside, if you can’t outside on the door – the power of the Precious Blood has everything.
 
It is the Blood that brings us the Holy Spirit, as Father Seraphim says. And this image gives us protection. Protection. And listen to this, I had the honor of sitting with Father Seraphim and our provincial Father Kazimierz who has joined us today for Mass, and they both are fluent in Polish. And they translated something from the writings of Blessed Michael Sopocko that is not in the Diary of Saint Faustina.   But is so powerful that we put it in this video – that we hope has been shared to you – that gives you an idea of the promises made by Jesus through this Image of Divine Mercy. Listen to the words that Saint Faustina told to her confessor, Blessed Michael Sopocko, that Jesus said:
 
“When chastisements for sins come upon the world, and your own country will experience utter degradation, the only refuge will be Trust in My Mercy. I will protect the cities and the homes in which the Divine Mercy Image is found. I will protect the persons who will venerate or honor this Image. The only refuge will be Trust in My Mercy.”
 
And then Jesus continues in His words to Faustina, that Blessed Michael Sopocko told us:
 
“Let everyone procure for their homes this Image. Because there will yet come trials. And these homes and entire families, and everyone individually who will hold this Image of Mercy in deep reverence, I will preserve from every sort of misfortune. The time will come when all those who do so will give witness to the miraculous efficacy and to the special protection of Mercy flowing from this Image.”
 
That is amazing! And this is what we ask you to do. Post an image – it could be any Image of Divine Mercy – you have a little prayer card… Go to our webpage https://www.thedivinemercy.org/divinemercyimage. Get one for free. There is no cost. Just go there. Download it. Print it. And put it in your home. Ask for the protection of this incredible Image.
 
Again, if the lamb slain in the Old Testament – whose blood was put on the doorposts – caused the Angel of Death to pass by; we think, and we know, that the Precious Blood of the Real Lamb – the Real Sacrificed Lamb – will offer protection.
 
Now, as we said in the video, this doesn’t mean that the virus may not strike you or your loved ones. This is not a magic wand, or a rabbit’s foot. But what it does mean, is the protection of God’s Mercy is with you. It may not be physically; it may be more spiritually. But we know that God is offering protection through this Image. And you know, it all ties to Divine Mercy.
 
A good friend of mine, Denis Nolan, and his wife, Cathy, just sent me an email this morning. They run, MaryTV; it’s a beautiful ministry. We’ve been connecting the messages of Fatima and Medjugorje and Divine Mercy into this meaning of today’s times. And they said, remember what Saint Faustina said in the Diary, that when the angel was ready to strike at a particular city in Poland – and we believe, Father Seraphim says, that that may have been worse off for the sins of abortion – that all of her prayers were ineffective, until she prayed the words Jesus gave her of The Divine Mercy Chaplet. And in those words, the angel was rendered helpless.
 
Now, again, I’m not saying if you pray the chaplet, or have the image, you may not be stricken; you may be. But remember, Jesus wept. He doesn’t want this. But He does allow it sometimes. But I’m telling you, we can help. By the more we pray, the more we trust – remember, trust is a vessel by which all grace is received – the more we can invoke the power of the Mercy of God upon ourselves and the whole world.
 
And for those who believe this is punishment, that is addressed in the prayer as well. “Eternal Father, I offer you the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ in atonement for our sins and the sins of the whole world.” So, it does make reparation. This is a powerful image. This is a powerful prayer.
 
And, so, we invite all of you to please share. If you want to find this video that tells you how to place the image and bless it; again, https://www.thedivinemercy.org/. Please join us. Right now, more than ever – even if we’re forced to be Mary’s and we can’t be Martha’s – we can make a huge difference in the world. And, in fact, I think that’s why God’s allowing it. Time for our prayers. Time for our family. And, most importantly, time with God.
 
So, let us make the most of a difficult situation, and use the tools of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and the Image of Divine Mercy, to help you in that process. May God bless all of you. Stay hopeful. And, most of all, Trust in God’s Divine Mercy!
 
 
 

May we all draw very near to Jesus, Divine Mercy, and Mary, Mother of Mercy!!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Tell Governor Tom Wolf and state legislators
that abortion is NOT an essential service and should be shut down immediately! While businesses, churches, and schools are closed, Planned Parenthood remains open to perform only abortions. This must be stopped. Sign our petition here!
So how do you start a productive conversation on abortion?
It’s an intriguing proposition to do a little bit of mental role-playing and contemplate what I would say to an individual who has never been engaged on the abortion issue.
I suppose it’s all the more interesting since I was once that individual.
I would say the most important decision when engaging such a person is to be committed to being friendly, non-confrontational, and winsome. A smile can be one of the greatest communication tools we have. Read More

We’re reaching the end of our first trimester and marveling at how quickly baby has developed.

Even though public vigils have been suspended, we know of 282 babies spared from abortion since February 26–with news from local campaigns continuing to come in.

We now have a confirmed report of the…

…17,000th baby saved from abortion all-time!

In today’s video blog, you’ll meet TWO abortion-bound mothers who thank YOU for helping empower them to choose life…and one mom who didn’t.

That post-abortive mother has joined her local 40 Days for Life campaign to help make sure other abortion-vulnerable women avoid the mistake she made.

Though the public 40 Days for Life vigil came to an early end, we continue to share stories and photos from the campaign’s first 25 days.

Xochimilco, Mexico

Vigil participants in Xochimilco met a woman who appeared to be a textbook case for abortion. On top of her own health concerns, her husband was an alcoholic.

Fortunately, the local 40 Days for Life leader is a medical doctor, who offered the couple critical information about abortion alternatives, pregnancy help centers, a place to live, health care, and more.

The couple returned to the abortion center two more times–not to end their child’s life, but to get more information and to THANK volunteers for providing the resources they needed to choose life.

Fort Collins, Colorado

Vigil participants always gasp when they see an abortion-bound couple enter the facility accompanied by a small child.

It’s a sight that makes Planned Parenthood gasp too–the presence of an adorable little girl or boy might encourage a mother to choose life.

Fort Collins prayer warriors reported that a couple accompanied by a beautiful two-year-old boy left Planned Parenthood just a few minutes after entering.

She didn’t do it,” reported the child’s father.

“Was she going to?” 40 Days for Life volunteer Sherri replied.

“That’s why we came here.”

Heather, the Fort Collins leader, said the expectant mother “looked so happy and relieved.”

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

—John 1:1-3

O God, may we always be quick to call you Father. And when we call you father, let your Spirit remind us that we, and all people, from their beginning to their last day, are your children. We praise you, Father, that you sent your Son to reveal to the world that all people are His brothers and sisters, that all people are your children.

Dear Family of Mary!

“Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation.  Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit for God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness.  You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (March 25, 2020)

“…because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk.”



When I first read this message, these were the words that caught my attention. Why does bad news always get the attention? I guess we have a built-in alert system for danger that is hard wired into our brains from ancient times. Anyway, I had to fight the fear.

Yes, Satan is reigning. This is a fact. We see his influence everywhere in our societies these days. Abortion, pornography, gangs, violence, on and on. And now we see a monster virus moving across the globe, disrupting our daily lives, and taking so many lives. We see healthcare workers exhausted and exposed. Governments are scrambling to organize a response. Most of us have no access to the Sacraments, and no hope of the churches opening for many weeks yet. The world is being held hostage.

There is plenty of evidence for the reign of Satan in our world.

But I realized when I reread the message today, that Our Lady begins that sentence with this:

“Little children, permit for God to speak to your heart…”

“Permit for God to speak to your heart…” i.e. Permit God to speak. Permit God to be present in your intimate self. Let God speak to your heart. Listen for God to speak to your heart. Desire God to speak to your heart. Pray to God to speak to your heart. Long for God to speak to your heart. Open to God’s voice in your heart.


Our Lady is not interested in dwelling on the reign of Satan in our world today. It is the first part of that sentence that is most important. God wants to speak to our hearts. It is our job to let Him in. That is the solution to the reign of Satan.

Satan reigns in the world because he tempts individuals to sin. He speaks to our hearts with lies and temptations, fear and jealousy, envy and hatred. He rules the world through those temptations. He works on us day and night to influence us, to attract us to the evil of sin. We are the ones who do the destroying, by listening to him.

If we want God to reign in the world, we must give Him permission to speak to our hearts. He will not force His words, His desires on us. He wants to give us the good things that would make for peace and a future. Those things will come from our hearing Him in our hearts and responding to the good He offers. We need to hear God speaking in our hearts. That is how He will bless the world, one person at a time. God speaks of love, of forgiveness, of self-control, of gentleness, of good will, of peace, and of life! He speaks of heaven on earth!

Our Lady wants us to permit God to speak to our hearts, so that we will become part of the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Now that is something to think about!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
