Saint Michael the Archangel is recognized for being the guardian and protector of God's church and people.
While traveling through the town of Netcong on September 14, 2009, I decided to stop into The , located on the corner of Route 46 and Church Street in Morris County, New Jersey. During my visit to this Catholic church, I recited some prayers and photographed the beautiful display of stained glass windows.
Note: After the photographs were taken, I shared the images directly as captured on the camera's digital memory card (before downloading into my computer) with my spiritual advisor, Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. The original digital images were transferred onto a CD for church archives. I also gave a copy of the CD to the youth minister at the Church of Saint Michael to share with parishioners and father Nicholas Bozza, the parish priest.
In my visit to the Blue Army Shrine, I also shared the events and a CD copy of the photographs with Father Paul Ruge, a spiritual advisor at the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA.
Maureen Therese Pinho, a parishioner of The Church of Saint Michael, wrote the following about the photograph: "I was wondering if you realized that St. Michael's parish in Netcong, NJ has 24 hour Perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. They also have a first class relic of Saint Faustina. The St. Michael statue is in the middle of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel where the Divine Mercy altar and relic of Saint Faustina is located. That could also explain the blessing of such a beautiful photo."
Maureen also attended the One World Praying for Life and Peace at the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA. The Catholic shrine is located in Washington, NJ. During the prayer service of October 18, 2009, Maureen and her children including a friend, all witnessed the Miracle of the Sun. Maureen also took some photographs of the solar phonomena.
Maureen said afterward, "My children and friend and I all saw the same thing with the sun spinning, changing colors, and pulsating as soon as the Hail Holy Queen was finished being recited" (The Holy Rosary). Visitors were praying the rosary with Father Paul Ruge.

As a Christian and practicing Catholic, the Lord has called me to be a witness to my faith by helping to evangelize the world through the gospels of Jesus Christ with his signs, wonders, and miracles. God the Father through His divine Son Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the angels, and the Blessed Mother are preparing the world for an era of peace as foretold by Our Lady of Fatima and prophesied in Revelation 20:1-3. I also believe that signs and wonders will increase in order for God to move forward and transform the world. Through graces of salvation and healing the Lord will bring forth a harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God at a scale never before seen in the history of the church.
Through a spiritual locution I received on September 14, 2009, Jesus called for all to join together and "pray for divine protection" in order to mitigate and extinguish violence throughout the world.
In Luke 10:18-19, Jesus said, "I have observed Satan fall like lightening from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power to tread upon serpents' and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you."
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:5-6
What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? -Romans 8:31
With those words in mind, please do not underestimate the power of prayer. In time of difficulty, pray and invoke the powerful name of Jesus.
As we continue to move forward in our millennium, also pray for God's angelic protection to enfold humanity and the church by visiting the following link and reciting daily the intercessory Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.

With reference to the message/locution received from Jesus and Our Lady, Loci B. Lenar says, "For everyone that has prayed the Rosary to Jesus and Our Lady for world peace, I believe this message to Consecrate the World to St. Michael the Archangel's protection is an answer to prayer."
"With all the terrorism, violence, lawlessness, and persecution of Christians seen around the world since 9/11, these signs and events cannot be ignored. The church needs to examine and act on the message from Jesus and Our Lady in order to hasten an era of peace as promised in Fatima and to fulfill Revelation 20:1-3."
Please pray that Our Pope, the clergy, and church parishes join together and consecrate the world to St. Michael's protection in accordance with Revelation 20:1-3.
The following message/locution was mailed to Pope Francis in 2015. In addition, Mr. Lenar has shared this message with his spiritual director, Fr. Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Catholic Church, Denville, NJ, USA.

By Loci B. Lenar
Message from Jesus: “My Father’s timing to fulfill Revelation 20:1-3 has arrived.”
On Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday of 2015, I received the following message from Jesus through a locution. Our Lord communicated: “My Father’s Will is to mitigate apocalyptic events, suddenly it will happen.” Jesus made reference to Our Heavenly Father’s timing in fulfilling Revelation 20:1-3 with a thousand year reign of peace.
Jesus connected His communication to Our Lady’s message that I had received in a spiritual locution on February 26, 2015. Our Lady’s communication said: "Consecrate the world to Saint Michael the Archangel's protection," and made reference to the violence in our world including the chaos in the Middle East.
In my locution, Jesus went on with His announcement and said, “Therefore, consecrate the world to Michael the Archangel’s protection in accordance with Revelation 20:1-3 to accelerate and move forward with a millennium of peace.”
Our Lord made reference to scripture and Revelation 20:1-3, “I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.” This scripture is connected to St. Michael the Archangel and his work in successfully completing God’s plan for world peace. In fulfilling this scripture, Our Lady of Fatima’s promise for world peace is accomplished.
In addition, Jesus indicated the process of consecration: The Holy Father (Our Pope) with church parishes and clergy are to join in prayer concurrently to consecrate the world to Michael the Archangel’s protection in accordance with Revelation 20:1-3; Hence, fulfilling scripture and the Word of God. Jesus communicated, “I Will mitigate apocalyptic events, lawlessness, violence, and persecution of the faithful - suddenly it will happen.”
Jesus than made a direct comparison to Pope John Paul II and his action in consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, 1984, in St. Peter’s Square, Rome. This was done in accordance with Our Lady of Fatima's request. Shortly after, the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union/Russia broke up with the fall of communism. Suddenly it happened!
There’s an additional scripture which also holds true to our current time: "At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people - everyone whose name is found in the book - will be delivered." (Daniel 12:1)
This message is of great importance and must not be disregarded!
May the Holy Spirit be a guiding light for God's church and His people.
Please pray for the fulfillment of Revelation 20:1-3 in our time. Thank you very much for your prayer support.
This locution was shared with Fr. Richard Tartaglia, my parish priest from Saint Mary's Catholic Church, Denville, New Jeresy, USA.

On February 26, 2015, I received a locution from Our Blessed Mother regarding the violence being seen and reported by news services throughout the world, especially in the Middle East.
Through prayerful discernment, Our Lady is requesting that the Holy Father, Pope Francis - consecrate our world to Saint Michael the Archangel's protection. Through prayer and the intercession of Our Lady and St. Michael the Archangel - Our Lord Jesus will mitigate lawlessness and violence in nations.
(Note: This consecration requires not only our Pope, but the participation of clergy and church parishes as well.)
On July 5, 2013, Pope Francis consecrated Vatican City to St. Michael the Archangel's protection and to St. Joseph. Pope Francis said, "In consecrating Vatican City State to St. Michael the Archangel, I ask him to defend us from the evil one and banish him."
On March 25, 1984, in St. Peter’s Square in Rome, Pope John Paul II consecrated the world and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in accord with Our Lady of Fatima's request for world peace.
However, through prayerful discernment, I believe consecrating the world to Saint Michael's protection will help to move forward and hasten the era of peace as promised by Our Lady of Fatima. Furthermore, the "period of peace" is clearly connected to Revelation 20:1-3. Moreover, I believe this is correct and should not be misconstrued.
Scripture says the following regarding God's reign of peace: Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and locked and sealed it over him, so that he would deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be let out for a little while. Revelation 20:1-3
In addition, I believe it's important for all church parishes to begin reciting the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel either before or after mass. Recite the prayer with your families and for our world. God will answer our prayers with his perfect timing.

I've shared this locution with my spiritual advisor, Fr. Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ, USA.
ACT OF CONSECRATION TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
Oh most Noble Prince of the Angelic Hierarchies
valorous warrior of Almighty God,
and zealous lover of His glory,
terror of the rebellious angels,
and love and delight of all the just ones,
my beloved Archangel Saint Michael,
desiring to be numbered among your devoted servants,
I, today offer and consecrate myself to you,
and place myself, my family,
and all I possess under your most powerful protection.
I entreat you not to look at how little, I,
as your servant have to offer,
being only a wretched sinner,
but to gaze, rather,
with favorable eve at the heartfelt affection
with which this offering is made,
and remember that if from this day onward
I am under your patronage,
you must during all my life assist me,
and procure for me the pardon of my many grievous offenses, and sins, the grace to love with all my heart my God,
my dear Saviour Jesus and my Sweet Mother Mary,
and obtain for me all the help necessary to arrive to my crown of glory.
Defend me always from my spiritual enemies,
particularly in the last moments of my life.
Come then oh Glorious Prince and succour me in my last struggle,
and with your powerful weapon cast far from me into the infernal abysses that prevaricator and proud angel that one day you prostrated in the celestial battle.
Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battle
so that we may not perish in the last Judgement.
Loci B. Lenar spoke publicly at St. Mary's prayer service on September 20, 2012, regarding a remarkable photograph that he took of a statue of Archangel Michael in the Church of St. Michael, located in Netcong, New Jersey.
The prayer service held at St. Mary's focused on Michaelmas (Feast of St. Michael and the Archangels). The Catholic church is located on Myers Avenue in Denville, NJ.
Mr. Lenar said, "In order to capture the rainbow that appeared around the statue of Archangel Michael and the display window, I photographed the image without using a flash even though indoor lighting was dim (left photo with darker exposure). There is a distinct shadow appearing around the arms of the statue from the rainbow as well. However, the photograph on the right is taken with the flash on (lighter exposure). With added light the colorful rainbow is diffused. (There is still a visible rainbow around the statue, but it's diffused from the camera flash). Furthermore, after the photographs were taken, I shared the images directly as captured on the camera's digital memory card (before downloading photos into my computer) with my spiritual advisor, Fr. Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. The original digital images were transferred onto a CD for church archives."
Mr. Lenar also said, "God is both the director and divine light - He sets the timing and place for us to act in response to His instructions. In the motion picture industry, the film director says, 'lights, camera, action.' Therefore, when called by God, we need to respond to His commands. With that in mind, there is significance to the photograph of St. Michael the Archangel and its meaning in the global community. One cannot avoid noticing while watching television programs the ongoing stories of acts of violence reported on network news shows. From the tragic shootings in July of 2012 at Aurora, Colorado, during the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises to the violence in the Middle East - the question must be raised: Is our world losing control?”
