Commencing in 2007 and onward, Loci B. Lenar set in motion a campaign to publicize news connected to Christianity and Catholicism with biblical insight. With an increase number of reports related to the miraculous, Mr. Lenar embarked on broadcasting events on his blog, http://lenarpoetry.blogspot.com in order to create public awareness of signs and wonders arising from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
With respect to miracles, Jesus said, "Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe." John 4:48
Mr. Lenar launched www.Christian-Miracles.com in 2008 as a gathering place for all who are seeking Jesus, especially for Christians and Catholics to renew their faith through news of miracles and daily devotional prayers. The website is built on the foundation of Christianity and the gospels, designed as a public ministry of faith and hope with spiritual news for the community.
Mr. Lenar's spiritual advisor for over fifteen years is Fr. Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Catholic Church, Denville, New Jersey. Mr. Lenar is also a parishioner of Saint Mary's Parish. The church holds a monthly service for prayer with Fr. Tartaglia including special prayer intentions which are submitted through the website of www.Christian-Miracles.com.
Mr. Lenar has also been a frequent guest on Radio Maria with host, Kathie Duggan, on the Catholic show Sacred Treasures. The radio program focused on Mr. Lenar's spiritual journey of faith and his website www.christian-miracles.com.
