Fatima: Rays of God's Light

On July 11, 2008 at 3:45 PM, I photographed rays of God's Light in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, located at the World Apostolate of Fatima, Washington, (Warren County), New Jersey, USA. The Catholic chapel had subdued lighting, so I used the flash to take indoor photographs. However, sunlight appears to be shining through the stained glass window, creating beautiful rainbow colors! The rays of light appear to be flowing towards the ceiling. I cannot explain the phenomenon; however, God seems to work in mysterious ways. Our Lord Jesus sends signs and wonders when we least expect it.

Remarkably, the stained glass window is a representation of the Miracle of the Sun which was witnessed by 70,000 people on October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal. In addition, reported that on September 8, 2007, visitors to the National Blue Army Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Washington, (Warren County), New Jersey, USA, witnessed the Miracle of the Sun and saw Jesus and Mary in the sky during the solar phenomenon.

In John, Chapter 1, Verse 5, the following is noted: "Now this is the message that we have heard from him and proclaim to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all."

In Psalm 150:1-2, the following is proclaimed: "Praise God in his Holy sanctuary; give praise in the mighty dome of heaven. Give praise for his mighty deeds, praise him for his great majesty."

Please note that after the photograph was taken, I shared the image directly as captured on the camera's digital memory card with my spiritual advisor, Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. The original digital image was transfered onto a CD for church archives.
