Facebook Blocks News Feed to "Christian-Miracles.com"


by Loci B. Lenar

On Sunday, March 18, 2018, I received two emails from Facebook Security that someone unauthorized changed the password and then accessed/hacked our Facebook account which is linked to "Christian-Miracles.com".

About 10 minutes prior to our account being hacked, a Facebook message indicated the requirement for updated information to verify our account and our password. I found it somewhat suspicious. However, the Facebook logo and instructions and corresponding link appeared legit. It was obviously a set up and a deliberate attempt to remove our Facebook page and make changes to our account. Moreover, as soon as I completed some of the information requested by Facebook, their message also vanished. Also removed is communication sent by Facebook messenger regarding ad approvals on our posts. 



I am concerned that our stored credit card information may have been compromised as well. 

Very serious matter; whose actually responsible for our account being hacked? No explanation yet from Facebook!

However, in the process of following their instructions, Facebook blocked our news feed and access to our pages.

Urgent Request: Please support our ministry by spreading the news as soon as possible and contacting Facebook regarding this matter!

(The Facebook matter is a separate issue and does not affect visitors using resources on the website of  www.Christian-Miracles.com.)

Foremost, this action is a deliberate attempt to undermine our ministry and may altogether be a result of anti-Catholic and anti-Christian sentiment seen on some Facebook posts.

As the administrator of our news feed, I'm shocked at the lack of professionalism by Facebook to resolve this matter in light of the fact that we are paying to advertise on their site.

Furthermore, Facebook has no customer service phone number!

Without delay, Facebook requires a contact phone number, especially if you're a paying customer and advertise to boost your posts.

It's upsetting that Facebook responds to your communication by auto-response only, it's a general message sent to everyone seeking support.

If you're a fan, subscriber or have followed our news feed for "Christian-Miracles.com" then please contact Facebook and requeast that our news feed be unblocked in the Help and Support section under: Report a Problem, Something Isn’t Working.



With over 500,000 fan likes on "Christian-Miracles.com", my concern is that other Facebook pages that focus on religious topics can be targeted as well.

This issue cannot be ignored by Facebook's security department and management!

Thank you very much for helping to resolve this matter by contacting Facebook on behalf of www.Christian-Miracles.com and reporting that our news feed is blocked and for its restoration.

Join us at Saint Mary's Church for an Evening of Prayer for Persecuted Christians



Saint Mary's Catholic Church - Denville, NJ

Bishop Arthur Serratelli from the Paterson Diocese of New Jersey, has designated August as a "Diocesan wide month of prayer for those suffering religious persecution.”

As Pope Francis recently remarked, "The dramatic news...about violence, kidnapping...and harassment against Christians and other groups does not stop. We want to assure those involved in these situations that we do not forget them, but we are close to them and pray insistently that, very quickly, the intolerable brutality of which they are victims is put to an end." (Angelus, May 1, 2015).

St. Bernard, one of the Saints we celebrate in the month of August had a deep faith in the power of prayer, and in the intercession of the Blessed Mother. “In danger, in distress, in uncertainty,” he says,
“think of Mary, call upon Mary.” 

In this spirit we will gather in prayer to “strengthen those who suffer persecution and move the
hearts of those who oppress them to embrace a life of peace.” -Bishop Arthur Serratelli

Please join us in prayer with Fr. Richard Tartaglia on Thursday, August 20th at 7:30 PM at St. Mary’s Church, 15 Myers Avenue, Denville, New Jersey, USA.

Good Friday Prayer



O Jesus, Who by reason of Thy burning love for us hast willed to be crucified and to shed Thy Most Precious Blood for the redemption and salvation of our souls, look down upon us here gathered together in remembrance of Thy most sorrowful Passion and Death, fully trusting in Thy mercy; cleanse us from sin by Thy grace, sanctify our toil, give unto us and unto all those who are dear to us our daily bread, sweeten our sufferings, bless our families, and to the nations so sorely afflicted, grant Thy peace, which is the only true peace, so that by obeying Thy commandments we may come at last to the glory of heaven. Amen.  (Prayer from Catholic Online)

Healing through the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick


Signs, Wonders, and Miracles - Christian-Miracles.com

Loci B. Lenar, the founder of www.Christian-Miracles.com, spoke at Saint Mary's Catholic Church about being healed of several medical conditions after receiving the Anointing of the Sick, a healing Sacrament of the Catholic Church. Mr. Lenar shared his personal testimony during St. Mary's monthly prayer service, held Thursday evening on November 15, 2012.

Mr. Lenar believes that by sharing his testimony with the general public, it will help encourage people to return to God and the church sacraments.

St. Mary’s prayer service is held every third Thursday of each month with Fr. Richard Tartaglia. St. Mary’s head pastor is Fr. Martin Glynn. The Catholic Church is located on 15 Myers Avenue, Denville, New Jersey, USA.

Reflecting on his spiritual journey of faith, Mr. Lenar, a resident of Mine Hill Township, says that through daily prayer and recitation of a 54 day rosary novena, his prayers were answered for healing and for other special intentions which remain private.

The 54 day rosary novena involves praying 27 days in petition for your request and then followed by 27 days in thanksgiving for prayers answered. The prayer is known as the Irresistible Novena to Our Lady.

Mr. Lenar says that nearly two decades have passed since being miraculously healed of a medical condition known as Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) and from severe bouts of headaches.

"I was sitting outside in my backyard on a patio chair and praying the rosary for Our Lady's intercession. It was a warm summer evening, sometime between 9:00 and 10:00 P.M. near the end of June. Then suddenly, on the twenty-seventh day of the novena, the Blessed Mother appeared as sign in the sky for about 30 seconds." says Mr. Lenar.

"Our Lady was standing over a full moon, appearing in a tunic that was white as snow, and her arms spread out, similar to the image on the miraculous medal. It reminded me of Revelation 12:1, which states, 'A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head,' " says Mr. Lenar.

At the completion of the life-changing 54 day rosary novena, Our Lady guided Mr. Lenar to receive the Anointing of the Sick from the Catholic church. 

Scripture says the following about receiving God's healing grace: Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. James 5:14-15

God's spiritual remedy for treating Mr. Lenar's medical ailments was to visit St. Mary’s Church (Denville, NJ) and then anointed with oil by Fr. Richard Tartaglia with the healing Sacrament. He received the Anointing of the Sick on several occasions from Fr. Tartaglia before being completely healed.

“Through God’s divine gift, I was healed of the heart arrhythmia and from years of suffering daily headaches. As a result of the healing, I was able to stop taking medication for the ailments," says Mr. Lenar .

Mr. Lenar was initially treated for the Atrial Fibrillation with the medication Lanoxin by his family physician, Dr. Gilbert Mandel of Denville Associates of Internal Medicine, Pocono Road, Denville, NJ.  Mr. Lenar visited Dr. Mandel on February 7, 2014 and requested documentation that he is no longer treated for Atrial Fibrillation. A copy of the medical note is posted on this page.


Mr. Lenar was inspired to write a prayer as a result of his healing. The prayer is written for anyone in need of God's healing grace especially families with children. The prayer is posted on this website and can be read at the following link: Prayerful Healing 

Loci B. Lenar has also shared his spiritual journey of faith with The Standard-Times, and was interviewed by Linda Andrade Rodrigues for the newspaper. The article was first published on December 29, 2012 in the Religion section (Page B7) of The Standard-Times newspaper from New Bedford, MA. The article also appears on the internet and can be read on SouthCoastToday.com. The news story is also reprinted on www.Christian-Miracles.com with additional photographs on the following link: The Seeker of Spiritual Phenomena

In Addition, Mr. Lenar has shared his personal testimony several times as a guest speaker on the Catholic program, Sacred Treasures, hosted by Kathie Duggan of Radio Maria.

On May 7, 2012, Fr. Richard Tartaglia and Mr. Lenar were both interviewed on Radio Maria regarding a Cross of Light that appeared on Mr. Lenar’s residence in Mine Hill, NJ, during Lent and Good Friday.

Fr. Tartaglia validated the sign by photographing the cross of light that was visible on Mr. Lenar’s backyard fence. A video with documentation regarding the Cross of Light can be viewed on
Gloria.tv at the following link: Cross of Light Appears in New Jersey

Mr. Lenar believes that Our Lord is calling the church to share our faith with others in order to open their hearts to the teachings of Christianity through God's love and healing grace: "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."  (1Chronicles 16:8-9)

Preparing for Advent - Morning of Reflection on the Joyful Mysteries

Are you ready for Advent? Join us for an uplifting and engaging morning of Sacred Scripture as we welcome Catholic biblical scholar Dr. Steven Smith, author of The Word of the Lord: Essential Principles for Catholic Scripture Study.

Saturday, December 7, 2013
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Together, we will learn about the 5 Joyful Mysteries in the Gospels:
  • Learn how the Rosary truly is a 'biblical' prayer
  • Contemplate Mary ... and her heart for Jesus
  • What does it mean that Mary is 'Full of Grace'?
  • What are the mysteries of Jesus in the Temple - and what do they reveal?
  • What are the '3 R's' - and how can they help us study the Gospels?

St. Mary's Catholic Church holds a monthly service for prayer with Fr. Richard Tartaglia including special prayer intentions which are submitted through the website of http://www.christian-miracles.com/prayerrequest.htm

St. Mary's Catholic Church is located on the corner of Myers Avenue and Route 46, Denville, New Jersey.

If you cannot attend the prayer service, you can still join in by praying in unity for all special prayer intentions.

There is great power through the Holy Spirit when people join together in agreement while praying for God’s help and intervention.

Regarding prayer, Jesus said, "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." (Matthew 18:19-20)
