(My following testimony is published on the Angels, Wonders, and Miracles of Faith blog. It was posted on April 2, 2010).
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.
Through prayerful contemplation and preparation for Easter, I made an appointment with my spiritual advisor, Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary’s Church. My visit on Wednesday, March 31, to Saint Mary’s, included the sacrament of reconciliation and a discussion with Fr. Richard about the spiritual presence of God as our Lord manifests His love through signs and wonders throughout the world.
For anyone that's interested in visiting Saint Mary's Church, it is located on the corner of Myers Avenue and Route 46 in Denville, New Jersey.
Since 2005 and each year following, God the Father has blest 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.
If you examine the cross closely, it bears a resemblance to the Ascension of Jesus into heaven.
The cross started appearing at the top of the fence as a result of sunlight and then slowly moved downward until it came in contact with the ground. At that point it turned into a round circle of light and then afterward it disappeared. The most recent cross was seen by my wife, Teresa, including my son, Ryan and his friend Nicole.
In Psalm 84:11, we read that “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.”
In my previous testimony on the matter which is posted on my blog from March 23, 2007, I stated that nothing is visible in the house windows that might create a reflection of a cross. As before, I stand by that statement.
In my heart, I know it’s a reflection of God’s light coming from the gates of Heaven. As Jesus said in John 12:46, “I have come into the world as light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”
The photographs with testimony were shared with my spiritual advisor, Father Richard Tartaglia during my recent visit. I also gave him a CD copy of the images for church archives. Through discernment and prayer, it’s not only a reflection of the Lord's spiritual presence, but also the Shield of Archangel Michael, protector of God’s church and people.
As you walk into the front door of Father Richard Tartaglia's office, the first object you notice is a poster hanging on the rear door with a caption of ‘Men in Black’ with two priests. The poster has Fr. Jones holding a bible, while Fr. Smith holds a cross, both protecting the church from malevolent forces of evil. Ironically, the poster is based on the sci-fi movie staring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith who are both protecting earth from galactic destruction.
With that in mind, we are indeed living in a world which is following the road to perdition if we do not embrace positive change and follow the gospels of Jesus Christ. In scripture we are reminded to love one another and to strive for world peace.
God the Father is calling for everyone to pray for Divine Mercy and to make use of church sacraments by attending and celebrating Mass.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is calling for us to pray that violence be mitigated and extinguished throughout the world.
Our Lord is calling for us to cherish and respect human life especially the unborn and elderly.
Our Lord is calling for us to live in peace with our brothers and sisters of other religious denominations.
Our Lord is calling for us to help evangelize the world and to pray for Christian unity.
Our Lord is calling for us to pray for peace in our families and for the world.
Our Lord is calling for us to pray for divine protection and to pray for assistance in our lives through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima and Archangel Michael.

As I stated before, the cross first began to appear on my property in 2005. For additional information on my testimony pertaining to the 2005 cross, please visit the following links: Miraculous Signs: Angels from Heaven and Signs of Angels
Incidentally, in 2008, by coincidence or perhaps I should say by providence, the Gloucester County Times reported a similar story of a cross photographed by 9 year old Gwynna Crawford on Easter Sunday in Pitman, New Jersey. The cross appeared on a neighbor's house. The article indicated that Gwyanna's mother and the neighbor were unable to find the source of the sun reflection. To read the story, please visit the following links: NJ.com or Cross Appears on House During Easter.
Please join in prayer for God’s divine intervention in order to change our world and usher in an era of peace as foretold by Our Lady of Fatima and prophesied in Revelation 20: A Thousand Year Reign of God’s Peace.
As Jesus said in Luke 18:27, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
