As a Christian and practicing Catholic, God has called me to share my spiritual journey with others by being a witness to my faith through signs and wonders which are arising from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I believe it's helpful to encourage others to trust in the word of God as written in the gospels. Furthermore, I believe God's plan is to move forward in evangelizing our world through signs and wonders.
Since 2005 a cross with an outline of a shield has appeared annually on my property in Mine Hill, NJ. Once again on March 27, 2011, rays of light from the sun is creating an image of a cross. This image has been showing up every morning since last week. The image appears at the top of the fence and slowly descends until it touches the ground. It then changes into a circle and disappears. The cross can be seen for about 30 minutes.
Interesting Note: The sun is on the outside of the fence, while the cross appears on the inside. However, the sun is high above in the sky and God is shining his light upon humanity including our home and property. That light is the Holy Spirit, and with that in mind, it's not impossible for God to send rays of light in all directions of the world, including inside our yard and on the fence. Furthermore, there are no objects in our windows which might cause a reflection.In 2005 the cross appeared as a result of daily prayers made to Our Lord and with my intercessory Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel for God's divine protection during a time of adversity. I believe the cross is a miracle and affirms God's spiritual presence with angels. Please don't underestimate the power of prayer, Our Heavenly Father will respond when we invoke the name of Jesus for assistance.
I believe that God has opened the windows of heaven and is pouring out the Holy Spirit on our world. Joel 2:28 says, "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. And Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."
Psalm 84:11 says,“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”
Interestingly, this is the Lenten season, a time of spiritual renewal and conversion for Catholics and Christians as we prepare for Easter.
Jesus said,"I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness." John 12:46
My wife, Teresa, had invited her cousin Diane Kayal to come visit with her husband and children on Saturday, March 26th. Diane's daughter, Brooke, stayed overnight with our family. Then on Sunday morning, the cross appeared on our backyard fence at around 9:00 AM. Brooke went outside to examine the image. I photographed her standing next to the cross and she said in awe, "It looks like Jesus."
Prior to Sunday, I went on March 24th to visit my spiritual advisor, Fr. Richard Tartaglia to speak with him about spiritual matters related to Lent including the cross that began to appear once more on our property. I also gave Fr. Tartaglia an open invitation to visit our home to see the Cross of Light for himself.
On Monday, March 28th, I dropped off some photographs in the rectory office at St. Mary's Parish, which is located in Denville, NJ, for Fr. Tartaglia to examine and to keep for church archives.
During my April visit to discuss spiritual matters with Fr. Richard, I shared the images directly as captured on the camera's digital memory card by transferring the photographs on to a CD for church records.
God is forgiving and sending a message of love for people to return to the sacraments of the church and to reconcile through confession during Lent.
Our Lord is calling everyone to make a sincere effort to attend weekly church services or Holy Mass. In doing so, it helps in receiving Our Lord's blessings and divine favor.
He is calling each and every person to pray for world peace and divine protection so that violence can be mitigated.
Jesus is calling everyone to open their heart to receive the Holy Spirit in order to have peace in their lives and families and throughout the world.
I believe Our Lord's plan is to move forward with an era of peace as foretold by Our Lady of Fatima, and to fulfill Revelation 20:1-3 with a thousand-year reign of God's peace. To read Our Lady's message, please visit the following link: The Fatima Message
I believe that if enough people pray, the course of history will change through God's divine intervention. "For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37
May Our Lady intercede on behalf of humanity and may God's mercy enfold our world with peace and divine love.
May Our Heavenly Father bless you and answer all your prayers through his Son, Jesus Christ.
