In 2008, Loci B. Lenar the founder and administrator of www.Christian-Miracles.com, designed and launched this website as a tool of evangelization to help create public awareness of signs and wonders arising from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Mr. Lenar created this site as a gathering place for all who are seeking Jesus, especially for Christians and Catholics to renew their faith with news of miracles.
Mr. Lenar established Christian-Miracles.com because of his personal growth as a Christian and practicing Catholic, resulting from several spiritual encounters with Jesus and Our Blessed Mother. The events were life-changing and transformed him into a faithful believer of the Gospels.
Mr. Lenar has also shared his spiritual journey of faith several times as a guest speaker on Radio Maria. Mr. Lenar and his spiritual advisor, Fr. Richard Tartaglia were both interviewed by Kathie Duggan on the radio program Sacred Treasures.
As our millennium unfolds, Mr. Lenar believes that God the Father is calling our world to move forward with Christian unity by awakening church leaders and promoting efforts to instill peace into religious denominations through constructive change and evangelization. Mr. Lenar also believes that it's essential for all nations to make positive changes in order to live in peaceful coexistence with one another.
Further information on Christian unity is noted in Tribute to King: Signs from the Heavenly Kingdom. The spiritual locution from Jesus can be examined and studied by visiting the above link. Mr. Lenar has also shared the locution with his spiritual advisor, Fr Richard Tartaglia.
Mr. Lenar's spiritual advisor for over fifteen years is Fr. Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, New Jersey, USA. In addition, Fr. Richard is a source for providing testimony on behalf of Mr. Lenar in connection to the spiritual events unfolding. Loci B. Lenar is also a parishioner of Saint Mary's Church.
Additionally, Mr. Lenar was a parishioner for nearly twenty years at Saint Mary's in Wharton, NJ, before making a change several years ago to the parish in Denville.
Mr. Lenar's affection for fine art can be seen through his photographs taken of stained glass windows. While visiting Catholic churches in various parts of New Jersey, he began photographing colorful window art.
By exhibiting photographs of church windows, Lenar believes that people will come to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of Christian art. Stained glass windows are designed by talented artists with a gift of illustrating bible scripture. Appealing to the eye, many of the decorative windows make reference to the Gospels of Jesus Christ.

"What is impossible with man is possible with God." Luke 18:27
In order for prayer to be effective, please forgive those that have sinned against you, no matter how difficult it may seem. Anger toward others creates a barrier in receiving all of God's blessings and grace. Pray to have any anger in your heart replaced with love.
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” Mark 11:24-25
Furthermore, many nations have lost their direction by ignoring the gospels and teachings of Christianity. Please join in prayer for God to intervene and bring change to our world. May God open the hearts of people to receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray for the course of history to be changed into a glorious era of peace!
Pray for the fulfillment of Revelation 20:1-3 in order to usher in God's reign of peace and to bring an end to wars, violence, lawlessness and persecution of the faithful. Pray to Our Lady of Fatima for an era of peace to unfold and to protect you from all adversity. Pray for God's protection in your families through the intercession of Saint Michael the Archangel. Pray for God's peace to reign on earth.
"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." ( John 3:17)
Pray to God to intervene in your families and marriages for healing and reconciliation. Pray for an improvement and restoration of your finances. Pray for healing of medical conditions and recovery of health.
Finally, pray to God with an open heart to receive an answer to your prayer and expect His divine assistance. Moreover, it's important to try and be faithful in order for Our Lord to change circumstances into your favor.
"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." (Hebrews 4:16)
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." (1Thessalonians 5:18)
"May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." (Psalm 20:4)

The Miracle Prayer
We recommend reciting The Miracle Prayer, composed by Fr. Peter M. Rookey. The Lord has gifted the International Compassion Ministry with a grace of healing.
Invoke the help of Angels
"Make friends with the angels, who, though invisible, are always with you. ... Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs." So encouraged St. Francis de Sales.
Through a spiritual locution Loci B. Lenar received on September 14, 2009, Jesus called for everyone to "pray for divine protection." The locution from Jesus was a result of Mr. Lenar's visit to the Church of Saint Michael in Netcong, New Jersey.
In June of 2010, Jesus again reminded Mr. Lenar of the importance of the message. After prayerful discernment, Mr. Lenar said, "The Lord's plan is to mitigate and extinguish violence throughout the world in order to usher in an era of peace."

God the Father, we join together in prayer and petition heaven for divine intervention to mitigate earthquakes and natural disasters throughout the world.
We invoke the powerful name of Jesus to calm the storms of time and to bring forth a millennium of peace and tranquility.
We pray to the Virgin Mary to interecede on behalf of Humanity for God's hand of mercy to bless us with divine protection.
We ask this and thank thee in the name of Jesus. Amen
I wrote the prayer in 2010 as a result of the earthquake in Haiti.
The Lord inspired me to compose a prayer in order to petition God to mitigate earthquakes and disasters while I was praying for the victims and families of Haiti.
Please join in by reciting the prayer daily.
Thank you very much for your thoughtful prayer support.

Angelic Tails: True Stories of Heavenly Canine Companions
This new book is by author Joan Wester Anderson, renown for writing books on angelic visitations and miracles.
The following excerpt is from Loyola Press: Angelic Tails is a collection of down-to-earth true stories from ordinary people who believe that God has graced their lives through heavenly canine companions. Each of the 30 stories challenges readers to reconsider their conception of angels—from the story of a former Air Force colonel whose golden retrievers served as his heavenly helpers in the Colorado wilderness to the account of St. John Bosco, who, for more than 30 years, was protected by an angelic dog as he walked the dangerous city streets. In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this book is evidence that God can use even muddy paws and cold noses to fulfill his purposes in our world.

In August of 2005, a Cross of Light appeared for the first time on Mr. Lenar's backyard fence in Mine Hill, New Jersey, USA. The same bright cross has subsequently appeared every year from 2005 to 2013 during Lent and Holy Week. Loci Lenar says that Fr. Richard Tartaglia has confirmed this phenonmena by visiting his home several times and photographing the sign in 2012 and 2013.
While traveling through the town of Netcong, located in Morris County, NJ, I stopped into The Church of St. Michael to say some prayers and snapped photographs of the beautiful display of stained glass windows and statues. Remarkably, the image of Archangel Michael shows a colorful rainbow that appeared while photographing the statue. To read the inspirational story and to view the photograph, please visit Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael.
