Oh ever immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy, Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners, Comfortess of the Afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings. Look upon me with mercy. When you appeared in the grotto of Lourdes, you made it a privileged sanctuary where you dispense your favors, and where many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal. I come, therefore, with unbounded confidence to implore your maternal intercession. My loving Mother, obtain my request. I will try to imitate your virtues so that I may one day share your company and bless you in eternity. Amen.
POPE JOHN PAUL II'S PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF LOURDES
Hail Mary, poor and humble Woman, Blessed by the Most High! Virgin of hope, dawn of a new era, We join in your song of praise, to celebrate the Lord’s mercy, to proclaim the coming of the Kingdom and the full liberation of humanity.
Hail Mary, lowly handmaid of the Lord, Glorious Mother of Christ! Faithful Virgin, holy dwelling-place of the Word, Teach us to persevere in listening to the Word, and to be docile to the voice of the Spirit, attentive to his promptings in the depths of our conscience and to his manifestations in the events of history.
Hail Mary, Woman of sorrows, Mother of the living! Virgin spouse beneath the Cross, the new Eve, Be our guide along the paths of the world. Teach us to experience and to spread the love of Christ, to stand with you before the innumerable crosses on which your Son is still crucified.
Hail Mary, woman of faith, First of the disciples! Virgin Mother of the Church, help us always to account for the hope that is in us, with trust in human goodness and the Father’s love. Teach us to build up the world beginning from within: in the depths of silence and prayer, in the joy of fraternal love, in the unique fruitfulness of the Cross.
Holy Mary, Mother of believers, Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
Regarding the painting of Our Lady of Lourdes, artist Stephen B. Whatley writes, "It was cloudy and gray in London on February 11, 2011 as I prayed in preparation to paint this tribute from my heart and soul - but just as I began, the sun broke through the clouds: my prayers were for healing for all those I know who are sick and suffering. I hope viewers will be blessed with peace, hope and healing, through faith, by seeing this painting"

With prayerful discernment, Our Lord Jesus communicated through a locution on December 31, 2015 to "pray for divine favor and mercy" and to "believe in the power of prayer."
In 2016, during the great Jubilee of Mercy, please don't hesitate to pray for Our Lord's divine intervention to answer all your prayers. Pray for Our Lady's Intercession by reciting the Novena for Impossible Requests. Also pray for Saint Jude or Saint Rita to intercede on your behalf. Both saints are invoked for impossible causes or if you're deprived of visible help.

"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

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."

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.
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.

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.
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. While reading Part One: Miracles through Prayer, I was captivated in the story, A Light in Her Life. The inspiring story with added illustrations is posted on our blog at the following link: Angels Wonders, and Miracles of Faith. Visit our Homepage for my thoughts on Joan's new book.
Inspirational in its artistic design, the awe-inspiring stained glass window can be seen inside of Saint Margaret Catholic Church in Morristown, New Jersey.
Do you believe in signs and wonders? If so, then I would suggest reading A Tribute to King.
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.
During her 1917 apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, Our Lady of Fatima foretold of an era of peace. For information connecting her message to scripture, please read Revelation 20:1-3, A Thousand-year Reign of God's Peace.
The Lord's blessing and grace flows through the recitation of The Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Pray daily or in time of need!
