Miracle of the Sun: A Personal Testimony of a Spiritual Visitation of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ


By Loci B. Lenar

Miracle of the Sun is a personal revelation and vision that I am releasing publicly with testimony of a spiritual encounter involving Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

On September 8, 1991, I witnessed a solar phenomenon (Miracle of the Sun) at approximately 6:00 PM eastern standard time in northern New Jersey while traveling through the town of Dover into Wharton - next to my hometown of Mine Hill.

Prior to my divine encounter with the Holy Spirit, my faith as a Christian and practicing Catholic could be best described as lukewarm.  However, the spiritual experience became life changing and transformed me into a faithful believer of Jesus Christ and the gospels. In John 4:48,  Jesus said about miracles, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe.”  

(Please read my testimony on the homepage of this website regarding other events that preceded this miracle.) 

With those words in mind, the sun appeared in a vivid hue of Orange-Red, while visually increasing in size to the extent that it's difficult to explain with logical terms.  While the sun was expanding in magnitude, it slowly descended and encompassed the earth with its sheer vastness and colors.   The visual phenomenon lasted only for about three minutes.  Interestingly, my eyes were not affected by the solar event.  However, I am not sure if anyone else in the area witnessed the solar phenomena or if it was intended for my eyes only.

Furthermore, through discernment, the Spirit of the Lord was present and overwhelmed me with an almost indescribable blissful peace of heaven; however, the spiritual after affect lasted for nearly three hours.  During the spiritual visitation, the Lord also imparted me with a vision of our world gifted and Blessed in Peace. 

In addition, Jesus conveyed a message for me to present to the World Apostolate of Fatima.  I put the communication into writing and shortly after delivered its contents via mail to Father Andrew and other members of the clergy, including Sister Mary Celeste of the Holy House Convent, located at the National Blue Army Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Washington, New Jersey. Prior to the miracle, I visited the shrine on several occasions and conversed with Sister Mary Celeste, an editor of the Catholic youth magazine, Hearts Aflame.  My article Reaching for Eternity with God's Love is published in the Summer 1992 issue of the magazine.  Her thoughtful support during my spiritual conversion with an open-minded approach to faith must be commended.

Providence is a catalyst for the miraculous events that followed: The contents of the message are unfolding.  The message relayed to the National Blue Army Shrine included a prophetic vision and request by the Lord for the Catholic Church to return the Icon of Kazan to the Russian Orthodox Church as a result of the break up of the Soviet Union. The Lord's request was made known in September of 1991, just before the Soviet Union was officially dissolved at the end of December of the same year.  This of course can be connected to the message of Our Lady of Fatima from her apparitions of 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. As a messenger of heaven, Our Lady conveyed God's plan for salvation and conversion to three shepherd children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta.  Our Lady also said to the children, "In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph, Russia will be converted and a period of peace will be granted to the world."

Furthermore, the Lord imparted a message of a great sign to unfold in order to validate the existence of God and my story.  Jesus communicated an official day of October 13 for the Miracle of the Sun to be witnessed by humanity (At the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA).

In addition to conveying a date of October 13 for the Miracle of the Sun to be witnessed, Jesus also communicated in his visitation of 1991 that "many will be healed and saved." 

God's word is unfolding in our Millennium.

Updates and Affirmations: On August 28, 2004 the Icon was finally returned to Russia by the Vatican and handed over to Orthodox Patriarch Alexei II.  The Icon is also known as Our Lady of Kazan and considered the “Protectress of Russia.”  For additional information about the Icon of Kazan, please visit the following link:

In a spiritual locution of 2007 and 2008, Our Lord Jesus conveyed the following: 'Now is the time to move forward, release the truth and prophesy your story with scripture.' 

Furthermore, God's miraculous sign came to fulfillment as promised by Jesus on October 13, 2008 at the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA. 

Visitors were blessed to witness the Miracle of the Sun at the National Blue Army Shrine, located on the grounds of the World Apostolate of Fatima in Washington, New Jersey, while celebrating the 91st anniversary of the 1917 apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. Moreover, one may now refer to the spiritual events as a Miracle of the Son (Jesus).

In a spiritual locution received on October 13, 2008, Jesus communicated that "Many will be healed and saved, and shall encompass the whole of humanity and be remembered for generations yet to come." 

(In 2009, I gave updated information regarding my story to Father Paul Ruge, the new spiritual director at the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA).

The Bible also conveys the following in Acts 2:17-18: "God says, 'It will come to pass in the last days that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all people.  Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams.  Indeed, upon my servants and my handmaids, I will pour out a portion of my spirit in those days, and they shall prophesy.' "  The Lord is not conveying the end of our world, but rather the end of old ways, and the beginning of change with a new era.  Through discernment, the Lord is preparing our Millennium for a great era of peace and prosperity with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit for salvation and healing.

The following is noted in Jeremiah 8:23: "This rather is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk in all the ways that  I command you, so that you may prosper."
God the Father indeed works in mysterious ways through His divine son, Jesus for the conversion and salvation of humanity.  Whatever the rationale, the event was awe-inspiring and changed me spiritually as I've noted in my poem, Miracle of the Sun

Through the blessings and grace of God, the heavenly event also lead me to physical and spiritual healing.  I was healed of a heart arrhythmia known as Atrial Fibrillation.  The medical condition is treated with Lanoxin, a cardiac medicine.  However, I've not used the medication for over ten years.  Additionally, I was healed from years of suffering painful headaches after countless visits to physicians with treatments that went to no avail.  With the intercession of the Blessed Mother and prayer, I was healed by the power of God through the Anointing of the Sick. The healing sacrament is administered through the church. 

In James 5:14-15 the following is noted: "Is anyone among you sick?  He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up.  If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven."   

I believe it's the appropriate time to release my story, and God's Will is to provide hope to humankind, especially during difficult times.  I give praise and glory to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as well as thanks for all the gifts and spiritual wonders.  I give thanks to the Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Fatima) for her intercession and help before the throne of God. 

My witnessing the Miracle of the Sun was conveyed during the 1990s to my spiritual advisor - Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ, (USA) - for his prudent and faith related assessment. 

I was also inspired by Our Lord to write a Millennium Prayer for world peace as a result of witnessing several spiritual wonders.  In Psalm 37: 4-6, the following is noted:  "Find your delight in the Lord who will give you your heart's desire.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust that God will act and make your integrity shine like the dawn, your vindication like noonday."   We must pray for God's divine intervention and remain patient, in order for Jesus to set the stage and timing for signs, wonders, and miracles to unfold in our world!

Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael

While traveling through the town of Netcong, located in Morris County, New Jersey, I stopped into St. Michael's Catholic Church to say some prayers.

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.

Miraculous Photo: Shield of Archangel Michael

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. 

Fr. Tartaglia spoke about this sign in his Homily during a prayer service held at St. Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. For more details on this story, please visit the Homepage on this site.

Where Miracles Happen

Commentary by Loci B. Lenar

Joan Wester Anderson and her updated book, Where Miracles Happen, is inspiring and touched my soul with God's spiritual presence.

Pray for World Peace

Please pray daily to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to change the course of history into an era of peace.  Also pray the Holy Rosary and request the Blessed Mother to intercede on behalf of humanity.
