Denville, NJ - March 30, 2014
Loci B. Lenar, the founder of www.Christian-Miracles.com , spoke at Saint Mary's Catholic Church regarding the healing 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 the church sacraments, and renew their faith in God through the promises found in scripture and through prayer.
St. Mary's prayer service is held every third Thursday of each month with Fr. Richard Tartaglia. The head pastor is Fr. Martin Glynn and 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 intentions which remain private.
The 54 day rosary novena involves praying 27 days in petition for a 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." said 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,' " said 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 St. Mary's 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 included a visit to St. Mary's Catholic Church (Denville, NJ) and requested the Anointing of the Sick, a healing sacrament of the Catholic Church. He was anointed with oil by Fr. Richard Tartaglia with the healing Sacrament. This healing sacrament can be administered by any Catholic priest in any church parish. Mr. Lenar received the Anointing of the Sick on several occasions at St. Mary's Church before being completely healed.
Moreover, Mr. Lenar is reminded of the promises of Jesus, "So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." (Mark 11:24 )
Mr. Lenar says, " 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 power of Jesus, I was able to stop taking medication for the ailments. I will never forget that day, I heard Jesus say through an interior locution, 'You are healed.' "
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

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.
Mr. Lenar believes that Our Lord is calling members of the church to share their faith with others in order to open their heart to biblical teachings of Christianity in order to receive 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."
