Angels, Wonders and Miracles of Faith - Guideposts

The following excerpt is from renown author Joan Wester Anderson and can be read on the website of Guideposts:

By Joan Wester Anderson

One of my favorite fellow bloggers is Loci Lenar, who posts Angels, Wonders and Miracles of Faith. This blog documents current spiritual signs and wonders, happenings that make people sit up and take notice.

It’s a beautiful and colorful site—Loci is extremely tech-talented—but the content is even better because we are able to see it. For example, a lighted cross occasionally appears on Loci’s property, and he has posted photos of it on his site. No one has been able to trace the source of this light, but when we see it as an actual photo, it is far more impressive than just words. Loci also features a statue of Michael the Archangel, with stained glass glowing behind it. Again, there is no apparent source of light.

People contact Angels, Wonders and Miracles of Faith to ask for prayers, and Loci brings those requests to his spiritual adviser, Father Richard Tartaglia, of St. Mary’s parish in Denville, New Jersey.

The following excerpt is from the website of Joan Wester Anderson:

Joan Wester Anderson's 15 books include WHERE ANGELS WALK, TRUE STORIES OF HEAVENLY VISITORS, which was on the New York Times best-seller list for over a year, has sold almost two million copies and been translated into fourteen languages. Published in fall, 1994, were the sequel to ANGELS, titled WHERE MIRACLES HAPPEN, and for children, AN ANGEL TO WATCH OVER ME. Both books were written in response to suggestions from readers, and were followed in rapid succession by three more in this series. FOREVER YOUNG (Thomas More Publishers), the life story of actress Loretta Young, was published in November, 2000. The actress had read the angel series, and requested Anderson as her biographer. The two became close friends. Anderson’s book, IN THE ARMS OF ANGELS (Loyola Press) covers angelic activity primarily during the past decade, including stories of hope from the 9/11 and Columbine School tragedies. Her most recent books, GUARDIAN ANGELS (Loyola Press), and ANGELS AND WONDERS (Loyola Press), focus on amazing and tender stories of God’s answers to prayers.

Anderson has appeared on national television programs including “Good Morning America,” “Oprah,” “20/20,” “NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw” and “Mother Angelica Live,” and was featured in such documentaries as “Angels–Beyond the Light” (NBC), “Angel Stories” and “Stories of Miracles” (The Learning Channel), and many videos. She was a story consultant for the television series, IT’S A MIRACLE, lectures in cities across the country, and has been interviewed on hundreds of radio talk shows.

Anderson is a Catholic and member of St. Edna’s Parish in Arlington Heights IL., a graduate of Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and a former adjunct professor at Harper Community College in Palatine, Illinois. She and her husband live in suburban Chicago, and have five grown children and four grandchildren.

O Mary Bright Dawn Of The New World

Photograph by Loci B. Lenar

O Mary bright dawn of the new world, Mother of the living, to you do we entrust the cause of life: Look down, O Mother, upon the vast numbers of babies not allowed to be born, of the poor whose lives are made difficult, of men and women who are victims of brutal violence, of the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy. Grant that all who believe in your Son may proclaim the Gospel of life with honesty and love to the people of our time. Obtain for them the grace to accept that Gospel as a gift ever new, the joy of celebrating it with gratitude throughout their lives and the courage to bear witness to it resolutely, in order to build, together with all people of good will, the civilization of truth and love, to the praise and glory of God, the Creator and lover of life.

The beautiful miniature stained glass window can be seen inside of Saint Jude's Catholic Church, located on 40 Maxim Drive in Hopatcong, NJ, USA.

The prominent stained glass window is certainly notable!

Mother of Perpetual Help - For Financial Aid

Mother of Perpetual Help - For Financial Aid

Realizing, dear Mother Mary,
that thou art our Perpetual Help not only in spiritual
but likewise in temporal necessities,
we approach thee with submissive and humble hearts,
because we have a child-like confidence in thy power and goodness,
beseeching thee to assist us in our present financial worry.
Owing to untoward circumstances which have arisen in our lives,
we are in dire want, being unable to meet our honest debts.
We are not asking, dearest Mother for wealth,
if possession of it is not in accordance with the holy will of God;
we merely beg for that assistance which will enable us
to satisfy our pressing obligations.
We believe, dear Mother,
that thou art the Queen of heaven and earth,
and, as such,
the instrument and special dispensation of thy Son Jesus Christ;
that thou hast acquired by virtue of thy wonderful dignity,
a sweet jurisdiction over all creation.
We believe that thou art not only rich and bountiful,
but extremely kind and generous to all thy loving children.
We plead with thee then, dear Mother,
to obtain for us the help we so urgently need in our present financial difficulty.
We thank thee, dear Lady and promise to publish far and wide,
the marvels of thy glorious Picture.

Miracle of the Sun: A Gift and Testimony of a Spiritual Phenomenon

Miracle of the Sun is a personal revelation and vision that I'm releasing publicly with testimony of a supernatural and spiritual phenomenon that I, (Loci B. Lenar) witnessed at approximately 6:00 PM eastern standard time on September 8, 1991 in northern New Jersey while traveling through the town of Dover into Wharton. Prior to the divine encounter, my faith as a Christian and Catholic could be best described as lukewarm. However, the spiritual experience became life changing and transformed me into a faithful believer of Jesus Christ and the Bible. The following is conveyed in John, Chapter 4, Verse 48: Jesus said, “Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders, you will never believe.”

With those words in mind, the sun appeared in a vivid hue of Orange-Red, while visually increasing in size to the extent that it's difficult to explain with logical terms. While the sun was expanding in magnitude, it slowly descended and encompassed the earth with its sheer vastness and colors. The visual phenomenon lasted for only about three minutes. Interestingly, my eyes were not affected by looking directly at the solar event. Furthermore, through discernment, the Spirit of the Lord was present and overwhelmed me with an almost indescribable blissful peace of heaven; however, the spiritual after effect lasted for nearly three hours. During the spiritual visitation, the Lord also imparted me with a vision of our world gifted and Blessed in Peace. In addition, the Lord conveyed a message for me to present to the World Apostolate of Fatima. I put the communication into writing and shortly after delivered its contents via certified mail to Father Andrew and other members of the clergy, including Sister Mary Celeste of the Holy House Convent, located at the Blue Army Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Washington, New Jersey. Prior to the miracle, I visited the shrine on several occasions and conversed with Sister Mary Celeste, an editor of the Catholic youth magazine, Hearts Aflame. My article Reaching for Eternity with God's Love is published in the Summer 1992 issue of the magazine. Her thoughtful support during my spiritual conversion with an open-minded approach to faith must be commended.

Providence is a catalyst for the miraculous events that followed: The contents of the message are unfolding. My communication to the Blue Army Shrine included a prophetic vision and request by the Lord for the Catholic Church to return the Icon of Kazan to the Russian Orthodox Church as a result of the break up of the Soviet Union. The Lord's request was made in September of 1991, just before the Soviet Union was officially dissolved in December of the same year. On August 28, 2004 the Icon was finally returned to Russia by the Vatican and handed over to Orthodox Patriarch Alexei II. The Icon is also known as Our Lady of Kazan and considered the “protectress of Russia.” For additional information about the Icon of Kazan, please visit the following link:

In addition, the Lord imparted a message of a great sign to unfold for humanity in the future in order to validate the existence of God. Jesus communicated an official day of October 13 for the Miracle of the Sun to be witnessed by humanity. God's miraculous sign will come to pass at the appropriate time in our millennium.

In a recent locution, the Lord conveyed the following: "Now is the time to move forward, release the truth and prophesy your story with scripture." Moreover, one may refer to the spiritual event as a Miracle of the Son (Jesus). For information that correlates to my story, please read Miraculous Signs: Angels from Heaven. The story is posted below, or visit the following link:

The Bible conveys the following in Acts, Chapter 2, Verse 17-18: "God says, 'It will come to pass in the last days that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. Indeed, upon my servants and my handmaids, I will pour out a portion of my spirit in those days, and they shall prophesy.' " The Lord is not indicating the end of our world, but rather the end of old ways, and the beginning of change with a new era. Through discernment, the Lord is preparing our Mellennium for a great era of peace and prosperity with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit for salvation and healing. The following is noted in Jeremiah 8, Verse 23: "This rather is what I commanded them: Listen to my voice; then I will be your God and you shall be my people. Walk in all the ways that I command you, so that you may prosper."

God the Father indeed works in mysterious ways through His divine Son, Jesus Christ for the conversion and salvation of humanity. Whatever the rationale, the event was awe-inspiring and changed me spiritually as I've noted in the poem. (To read poetry, click on the image)

Through the blessings and grace of God, the heavenly event also lead me to physical and spiritual healing. I was healed of a heart arrhythmia known as Atrial Fibrillation. The medical condition is treated with Lanoxin, a cardiac medicine. However, I've not used the medication for over ten years. Additionally, I was healed from years of suffering painful headaches after countless visits to physicians with treatments that went to no avail. With the intercession of the Blessed Mother and prayer, I was healed by the power of God through the Anointing of the Sick. The healing sacrament is administered through the church. In James 5, Verse 14-15 the following is noted: "Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven."

I believe it's the appropriate time to release my story, and God's Will is to provide hope to humankind, especially during difficult times. 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. My witnessing the Miracle of the Sun was conveyed in the 1990s to my spiritual advisor - Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ (USA) - for his prudent and faith related assessment.

I was also spiritually inspired by Our Lord to write a Millennium Prayer for world peace as a result of witnessing several spiritual wonders. In Psalm 37, Verse 4-6, the following is noted: "Find your delight in the Lord who will give you your heart's desire. Commit your way to the Lord; trust that God will act and make your integrity shine like the dawn, your vindication like noonday." Please visit the following link and read the prayer daily for an era of peace:
