In the summer of 2005 a bright cross began to appear for the first time on our property. My wife, Teresa, and daughter Lauren, checked windows and rooms and could not find any source of reflections when the cross appeared. The interesting point is that the sun was rising behind the fence in the east, while the image appears on the front, as if the sun is shining onto the fence from the west! However, the luminous cross looks brighter than the sun even though sunlight appears to be responsible in creating the image. If you examine the cross closely, the sun is producing a shadow on the vines as it emits light on the fence.
When the image first manifested, our family had been encountering adversity and some difficulty with our son. However, the issues have since mitigated through God's spiritual presence. When encountering obstacles, prayer can have amazing and powerful results! Indeed, nothing is impossible through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.
On Palm Sunday in 2006; on September 3, 2007, and on September 6, 2008, and again on March 28, 2009, the bright cross appeared on our property. On March 27, 2010 the cross appeared with start of Holy Week.
Through discernment, it's a miraculous sign of God's angelic shield of protection through the intercession of Saint Michael the Archangel. I attribute the sign sent from heaven as result of my prayers to Jesus and Saint Michael for assistance during times of spiritual discord and for God's protection.
In a problematic world of derision, our faith in prayer is necessary for God's divine intervention and protection. God's plan is designed to help validate His existence to humanity, especially at times when circumstances appear to be hopeless.
In John 4:48, Jesus said, “Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders, you will never believe.”
Throughout the bible we read about angelic visitations. In Psalm 91:1-16 we read the following about Security Under God's Protection:
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place, the Most High, who is my refuge, no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.
For God commands his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they shall support you, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.
Shortly after the appearance of the luminous cross of September 3, 2007, the Lord conveyed through a spiritual locution/impartation, His Will of 'restoring stability' in our millennium and affirmed Revelation 20:1-3, "Then I saw an angel come down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a heavy chain. He seized the dragon, the ancient serpent ... and tied it up for a thousand years and threw it into the abyss, which he locked over it and sealed, so that it could no longer lead the nations astray until the thousand years are completed ..."
Through discernment, the miraculous cross is a sign to humanity of God's Will to usher in an era of peace by fulfilling Biblical prophecy with the power of Jesus Christ and shield of Archangel Michael. However, we must prepare by joining together in prayer for God's peace and divine protection to enfold humankind and remain patient, in order for Jesus to set the stage and timing for signs, wonders, and miracles to unfold in the world.

The circumstances behind the event is a result of God imparting me with a vision of our world Blessed in Peace during a spiritual visitation on September 8, 1991. Please visit the following link to read my story: Testimony of a Spiritual Phenomena
Updates: On Wednesday, March 19, 2008, I visited my spiritual advisor, Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. I communicated to Father Richard a message imparted to me by Jesus regarding a sign that the Lord would send with a cross similar to what appeared on my property in 2005, 2006, and 2007 in order to affirm my story and validate it as truth.
The Gloucester County Times of Woodbury, New Jersey, reported that on March 23, Easter Sunday, 9 year old Gwynna photographed a cross reflecting on a neighbor's house. Her mother and a neighbor were unable to find the source of the reflection. "I thought it was a reflection from the sun, I don't know. It came on Easter and thought that was pretty cool," Gwynna said. The story appears in the March 25, 2008 issue of the Gloucester County Times with a color photograph of the cross printed on the front page of the newspaper.
For more details on Gwynna's photograph and story, please order a copy of the March 25 issue from the Gloucester County Times at 309 S. Broad Street, Woodbury, NJ 08096. A brief version of the story with a photo appears on NJ.com at the following links:

The 2005 photograph of the luminous cross was shared with my spirtual advisor directly as captured on the camera's digital memory card. The photo of the cross was transferred onto a CD with several prints also supplied for church archives. The material was hand delivered to Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, New Jersey for his prudent and faith related assessment. He has Blessed the photograph at my request.
Pastor Richard is my spiritual advisor for over fifteen years. Fr. Richard is a source for imparting testimony on behalf of the Lenar Family in connection to the spiritual events unfolding in my life.
I give praise and glory to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as well as thanks to the Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Fatima) for all the gifts and spiritual wonders unfolding.
