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

 

April 2, 2014

Dear children, with a motherly love I desire to help you for your life of prayer and penance to be a sincere attempt of drawing closer to my Son and His divine light – that you may know how to separate yourselves from sin. Every prayer, every Mass and every fasting is an attempt of drawing closer to my Son, a reminder of His glory and a refuge from sin – it is a way to a renewed union of the good Father and His children. Therefore, my dear children, with hearts open and full of love, cry out the name of the Heavenly Father that He may illuminate you with the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit you will become a spring of God's love. All those who do not know my Son, all those thirsting for the love and peace of my Son, will drink from this spring. Thank you. Pray for your shepherds. I pray for them and I desire that they may always feel the blessing of my motherly hands and the support of my motherly heart.

 

March, 25, 2014
“Dear children! I am calling you anew: begin the battle against sin as in the first days, go to confession and decide for holiness. The love of God will begin to flow through you into the world, peace will begin to rule in your hearts and God's blessing will fill you. I am with you and intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 

March 18, 2014

"Dear children! As a mother, I desire to be of help to you. With my motherly love, I desire to help you to open your heart and to put my Son in the first place in it. Through your love for my Son and through your prayer, I desire for God’s light to illuminate you and God’s mercy to fill you. In this way, 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, teaches you humility and wisdom, and finds the way to the Heavenly Father. Pray with me for those who do not accept me and do not follow me - those who, because of hardness of their hearts, cannot feel the joy of humility, devotion, peace and love – the joy of my Son. Pray that your shepherds, with their blessed hands, may always give you the joy of God’s blessing. Thank you.”

 

March 2, 2014

Dear Children, I am coming to you as a mother and I desire that in me, as in a mother, you may find your abode, consolation and rest. Therefore, my children, apostles of my love, pray. Pray with humble devotion, obedience and complete trust in the Heavenly Father. 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 you 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. Pray for your shepherds and place your trust in their blessed hands. Thank you.

 

February 25, 2014
“Dear children! You see, hear and feel that in the hearts of many people there is no God. They do not want Him, because they are far from prayer and do not have peace. You, little children, pray - live God's commandments. You be prayer, you who from the very beginning said `yes` to my call. Witness God and my presence and do not forget, little children: I am with you and I love you. From day to day I present you all to my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 

February 2, 2014

Dear children! With motherly love I desire to teach you sincerity, because I desire that, in your actions as my apostles, you be exact, resolute, and above all sincere. I desire that, by the grace of God, you be open for a blessing. I desire that by fasting and prayer you obtain from the Heavenly Father the cognition of what is natural and holy - Divine. Filled with cognition, under the shelter of my Son and myself, you will be my apostles who will know how to spread the Word of God to all those who do not know of it; and you will know how to overcome obstacles that will stand in your way. My children, by means of a blessing, God's grace will descend upon you and you will be able to retain it through fasting, prayer, purification and reconciliation. You will have the efficiency which I seek of you. Pray for your shepherds that the ray of God's grace may illuminate their ways. Thank you.

 

January 25, 2014
“Dear children! Pray, pray, pray for the radiance of your prayer to have an influence on those whom you meet. Put the Sacred Scripture in a visible place in your families and read it, so that the words of peace may begin to flow in your hearts. I am praying with you and for you, little children, that from day to day you may become still more open to God’s will. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

 

January 2, 2014

Dear children; For you to be able to be my apostles and to be able to help all those who are in darkness, to come to know the light of the love of my Son, you must have pure and humble hearts. You can not help for my Son to be born in, and to reign in, the hearts of those who do not know Him, if He does not reign – if He is not the King – in your heart. I am with you. I am walking with you as a mother. I am knocking on your hearts. They can not open because they are not humble. I am praying, and you my beloved children also pray, that you may be able to open pure and humble hearts to my Son and to receive the gifts which He has promised you. Then you will be led by the love and strength of my Son. Then, you will be my apostles who everywhere around them spread the fruits of God’s love. My Son will act from within you and through you, because you will be “one”. My motherly heart yearns for this – for unity of all of my children – through my Son. With great love I bless, and pray for those who are chosen by my Son – for your shepherds. Thank you.

 

At first Our Lady was sad and then decisive.

 

December 25, 2013

"Dear children! I am carrying to you the King of Peace that He may give you His peace. You, little children, pray, pray, pray. The fruit of prayer will be seen on the faces of the people who have decided for God and His Kingdom. I, with my Son Jesus, bless you all with a blessing of peace. Thank you for having responded to my call."

In all our churches throughout the world, it should be as it is here in Medjugorje!
