WHETHER OR NOT YOU CAN RECEIVE BLESSINGS OVER THE INTERNET 

 

Recently there was a typical Internet-era tempest in a teacup caused by a blogger's allegation that Mary TV was wrong in affirming that those witnessing a real-time/live Internet transmission of the Blessed Mother's apparitions receive the blessing of being in her presence.

 

Given all this manufactured heat, it's time to shed some light on the matter.  We will rely on reason, Church teaching and the situation specific to Medjugorje.

 

Let's start with the relevant questions and then proceed to address them.

 

Can blessings be transmitted through electronic media when this happens real-time/live?

 

Does Our Lady bless all those who are present at one of her Medjugorje apparitions?

 

Can Our Lady's blessings be transmitted across different geographical locations when she is appearing at one particular place - and specifically can it be transmitted via the Internet?

  

PHOTONS AND ELECTRONS

 

Can blessings be transmitted through electronic media when this happens real-time/live?

 

Regarding the first question, the answer (if you believe Church teaching) is an unqualified YES.

 

The Catholic Church has specifically stated that papal blessings can be transmitted over the radio and other electronic media to observers/listeners when this happens in "real-time/live," i.e., at the actual time when the Pope is giving the blessing even if the observer/listener is on a different continent.  To give a very recent example, on May 25, 2012 the Vatican announced a plenary indulgence for those attending the Seventh World Meeting of Families from May 30 to June 3, 2012 even when the attendees receive the papal blessing over electronic media:  "Faithful who are unable to participate in the event may nonetheless obtain Plenary Indulgence under the same conditions if, "spiritually bonded to the faithful gathered in Milan, they recite the Our Father, the Creed and other devout prayers calling on Divine Mercy to grant the aforementioned ends, particularly when the words of the Pontiff are transmitted by radio and television."

 

What's the difference between physically witnessing an event and witnessing it in real-time/live over a video stream on the Internet?  It's the difference between photons and electrons.  Those who witness it physically see the event through the medium of photons while those who see the same event while it is taking place use the medium of electrons.  It's the same event seen at virtually the same time, the only difference being the respective speeds of photons and electrons.  The Vatican has attached a plenary indulgence to the claim that a blessing received via either medium is equally effective!

 

If this is true of the blessing of the Vicar of Christ, it is especially true of a blessing from the Mother of Christ.

 

 

BLESSINGS ARE THE HEADLINES OF THE MEDJUGORJE APPARITIONS

 

Does Our Lady bless all those who are present at one of her Medjugorje apparitions?

 

YES.  From the very beginning of the apparitions, this is what the Blessed Mother said.   From 1981 the Medjugorje visionaries have often reported this remarkable phenomenon.  Remember that Our Lady's voice caused the babe in Elizabeth's womb to leap with joy.  Her very presence is a blessing.

 

The specific blessing that comes by being present at a Medjugorje apparition has a real power.  To give two instances of the Blessed Mother pointing this out, consider the February 25, 1991 message which specifically states"I am blessing each of you" or the July 25, 1990 message where she says "I bless you with my motherly blessing."

 

The visionary Marija is especially potent on this point as she has said in several interviews.  Consider this example ( http://www.degrandisssj.com/links/readings/index1066.html):

 

Q: Marija, why did Our Lady say that She is happy to see us in such large numbers when She is referring to those gathered?

 

A: Every time I receive Our Lady, when there are many numbers present in the apparitions, Our Lady blesses us and She asks, really from everyone of us, to be more near to Her and to be Her instruments. The more people are with Her, the more Her plan is fulfilled.

 

Q: So you would say it is important to be in the presence of Our Lady?

 

A: Yes. Also the blessing of Our Lady is important.

 

Q: How does the apparition affect our soul when we are in Her presence?

 

A: Always we should be open for the graces Our Lady wishes to give us. Our Lady has said, "Pray for my intentions. The moment you pray for my intentions, it is then possible I can help you." Then our hearts, our minds are open for the blessing of Our Lady, of the presence of Our Lady, and so in this way you become more open to receive grace from Our Lady and your soul is affected.

 

Q: So, being in the presence of Our Lady, even if loved ones are not with us, does it affect our loved ones and our family back home?

 

A: Yes. Our Lady always says, "You are instruments. I invite you, dear children," and so Our Lady said that you will become more of an example for others, when you're back with them. You bring blessings to them of the apparitions. To us, Our Lady gives graces in the apparitions, when we are present with Her. For our family, our loved ones, the people who are near to us in our family, who thought it may not be possible for them to come and be blessed by Our Lady in an apparition, they, too will receive blessings from those who pray for them in preparation for and during the apparition. And so, every blessing from Our Lady that we receive in the apparition is not only a grace for us, but also...our families will receive blessings and we are able to give these graces to other people.

 

Q: Our Lady said in 1984 that there are particular graces available during the moment of the apparition. Can you explain what some of these graces are?

 

A: I always say, the presence of Our Lady is a "big" grace for every one of us. Many times it is possible that we are tired, we don't understand, we have unimportant problems, sicknesses, and we always are asking Our Lady only for help with these situations. But Our Lady desires to give us more, a much more large number of graces. Not only does Our Lady give the grace of blessing you, but also She grants many other gifts for those present, to be more open for God's Word and more open for graces that She desire to give to us, not only these days, but also throughout all our life. Also, She desires to give the grace for us to give thanksgiving to God for Her presence in the apparitions. This is a great grace. Our Lady said pray. The moment when you pray, you become more open and your heart is more open, and it is then that She can intercede before God and help you with many other graces She wishes to give you.

 

Q: Marija, when everything in your day goes wrong and your crosses bear down real hard on you, what happens to those life burdens at the moment you see Our Lady?

 

A: Every time at the moment of the apparition, we, the visionaries, forget everything and we then become aware only of Our Lady and Her presence and more beautiful things are in our hearts. But in our mind, 'we remember' also those people who are present and in a special way, those who are physically sick, and those who are spiritually sick.

 

Q: So, if we are in the presence of Our Lady with you can we experience the same grace of our life's burden being lifted as you, and how do we so this?

 

A: Yes. Our Lady said pray. And I have seen, from the beginning, that Our Lady asks from us to be more open for prayer every day, more open for sacrifice, for fasting and after, we will see the fruit of prayer in our personal conversion, and with our conversion, we help also other people to convert and to be near to God.

 

Q: So, we can experience, in a sense, the same thing you experience in the apparition in regards to our life burdens being lifted?

 

A: Yes. We have this experience in the beginning - Our Lady appeared and She became more important for us, and life's problems, less important. Then, little by little Our Lady said, "I am not important. God needs to be in the center of your life." In this way, Our Lady helped us to give our problems to God and instead of having problems, we had God.

 

Q: Why does Our Lady bless everyday in Her apparitions?

 

A: Our Lady blesses us and I think the most beautiful thing is this blessing of Our Lady that is for everyone.

 

 

BLESSINGS OVER THE INTERNET

 

Can Our Lady's blessings be transmitted across different geographical locations when she is appearing at one particular place - and specifically can it be transmitted via the Internet?

 

Once we understand that the celestial realm is not limited by our geographical constraints, we will recognize that the answer is YES.  If you believe that a Hail Mary no matter where in the world it is prayed will reach Our Lady, if you believe that she intercedes for you no matter where you live, then you can hardly say that her blessings cannot reach you no matter how far away you are from the site of an apparition to which you are "connected" on a sensory and intellectual level (via electronic media).

 

MARY TV had said at the beginning that the visionary Ivan had stated that it was his opinion that the blessings that come with the apparition of the Blessed Mother can be transmitted over the Internet when this is broadcast real-time.  Cardinal Schonborn, the primary architect of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Ivan's host, agreed with this assessment.

 

Given what we have seen about Church teaching on the transmission of blessings over electronic media and the special grace promised by Our Lady to those who witness her apparitions, MARY TV feels a particular obligation to share this message of joy to all its viewers.

OUR LADY'S MESSAGES

February 2, 2016
"Dear children, I have called you and am calling you anew to come to know my Son, to come to know the truth. I am with you and am praying for you to succeed. My children, you must pray much in order to have all the more love and patience; to know how to endure sacrifice and to be poor in spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, my Son is always with you. His Church is born in every heart that comes to know Him. Pray that you can come to know my Son; pray that your soul may be one with Him. That is the prayer and the love which draws others and makes you my apostles. I am looking at you with love, with a motherly love. I know you; I know your pain and sorrows, because I also suffered in silence. My faith gave me love and hope. I repeat, the Resurrection of my Son and my Assumption into Heaven is hope and love for you. Therefore, my children, pray to come to know the truth; to have firm faith which will lead your heart and which will transform your pain and sufferings into love and hope. Thank you. "
 
January 25, 2016
“Dear children! Also today I am calling all of you to prayer. You cannot live without prayer, because prayer is a chain which brings you closer to God. Therefore, little children, in humility of heart return to God and to His commandments so that with all of your heart you are able to say: as it is in Heaven so may it be on earth. You, little children, are free to in freedom decide for God or against Him. See where Satan wants to pull you into sin and slavery. Therefore, little children, return to my heart so that I can lead you to my Son Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
 
January 2, 2016
“Dear children!  As a mother, I am joyful to be among you because I desire to speak anew about the words of my Son and of His love. I hope that you will accept me with the heart, because the words of my Son and His love are the only light and hope in the darkness of today. This is the only truth and you who will accept and live it will have pure and humble hearts. My Son loves those who are pure and humble. Pure and humble hearts bring to life the words of my Son, they live them, they spread them and they make it possible for everyone to hear them. The words of my Son bring back life to those who listen to them. The words of my Son bring back love and hope. Therefore, my beloved apostles, my children, live the words of my Son. Love each other as He loved you. Love each other in His name, in memory of Him. The Church is advancing and growing because of those  who listen to the words of my Son; because of those who love; because of those who suffer and endure in silence and in the hope of final redemption. Therefore, my beloved children, may the words of my Son and His love be the first and the last thought of your day. Thank you.”

 

December 25, 2015

“Dear children! Also today I am carrying my Son Jesus to you and from this embrace I am giving you His peace and a longing for Heaven. I am praying with you for peace and am calling you to be peace. I am blessing all of you with my motherly blessing of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 

December 25, 2015 (to Jakov) 

"Dear children! All these years that God permits me to be with you are a sign of the immeasurable love which God has for each one of you and a sign of how much God loves you. Little children, how many graces the Most High has given to you and how many graces he desires to give to you. But, little children, your hearts are closed and live in fear, and do not permit Jesus to have His love and His peace overcome your hearts and to begin to reign in your lives. To live without God means to live in darkness and never to come to know the Father's love and His care for each of you. Therefore, little children, today in a special way pray to Jesus that as of today your life may experience a new birth in God and become a light which will radiate from within you, and thus that you may become witnesses of God's presence in the world to every person who lives in darkness. Little children, I love you and daily intercede before the Most High for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
