What does scripture say about publicizing our spiritual journey of faith and gifts that we receive from God?
"Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonderful acts." (1 Chronicles 16:8,9)
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."

I recommend reciting The Miracle Prayer, which is written by Father Peter M. Rookey. The Lord has gifted and blest Father Rookey and the International Compassion Ministry with a grace of healing.
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.

Lent prepares us through sacrifice and prayer for a spiritual renewal of the soul. However, Easter rejuvenates our lives as God the Father calls us to live by the gospels of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by transforming us into the resurrected image of His divine son.
Since 2005 and each year following, God the Father has blessed me through His divine son, Jesus Christ, with a miraculous sign of a cross which appears annually on my residence in Mine Hill, NJ. Once again, on Saturday morning, March 27, 2010, a cross surrounded by a shield appeared on my backyard fence. The spiritual presence of God and His angels coincided with the start of Holy Week.
To read my testimony and to view the photographs, please visit the following link: Signs from Heaven
In August of 2005, a Cross of Light appeared for the first time on Mr. Lenar's backyard fence. The same bright cross has subsequently appeared in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and again in 2012 during Lent and Holy Week.
