With respect to miracles, Jesus said, "Unless you people see signs and wonders you will never believe." John 4:48

(Fr. Richard Tartaglia begins his homily about 53 seconds into the video.)

Since 2005 a Cross of Light with an outline of a shield has appeared annually on my property in Mine Hill, New Jersey. In recent years, the image has appeared during Lent, Holy Week and ends around Easter. This cross first appeared while my family was encountering adversity. I must emphasize that through the power of prayer the issues were mitigated.

What makes this matter even more interesting, is the fact that similar phenomena with a Cross of Light has appeared elsewhere in NJ and in Canada. Each event is noted in this video with Fr. Richard Tartaglia's Homily regarding the sign.

I contacted my parish priest, Fr. Richard Tartaglia on Holy Thursday, April 5, 2012, regarding the cross appearing on my backyard fence.

In order to provide an assessment of the matter, Fr. Tartaglia came to my residence and examined the Cross of Light and photographed the image on Good Friday, April 6, 2012.

I left for work at 7:00 AM, so I didn't speak to Fr. Richard until Tuesday, April 17th after dropping off prayer requests for Thursday's prayer service held at St. Mary's Catholic Church on April 19th. Moreover, Fr. Tartaglia validated the image as a visible sign in his homily during the prayer service.

Through discernment, the image of the cross is a reminder from Our Lord Jesus of his spiritual presence. The image appeared while praying for Our Lord's assistance as well as for intercessory help from St. Michael the Archangel, the guardian of God's people and church.

I believe this sign is meant to encourage people to return to God and the gospels. I also believe that Our Lord is calling people back to the sacraments of the church and to daily prayer. God is calling everyone to accept his divine love and mercy, especially during times of need.

During the monthly prayer service held on April 19th, Fr. Tartaglia discussed these signs as related to scripture in his Homily at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Myers Avenue, Denville, New Jersey, USA.

Since posting this video, Fr. Richard Tartaglia and I were guest speakers on the international Catholic station Radio Maria. We were interviewed on May 7, 2012 by Kathie Duggan, radio host for the Catholic show, Sacred Treasures. The first half of the show began with guest speaker, Margarita Rodriguez, who was healed during a Rosary that she was leading when a seer, Ivan Dragicevic of Medjugorje, came to St. Brendan Catholic Church in Miami, Florida.
