Miracle of the Sun: Rays of God's Light
During my visit to the Blessed Sacrament Chapel which is located at the World Apostolate of Fatima in Washington, (Warren County), New Jersey, I photographed what I would describe as Rays of God's Light. The photo was taken on July 11, 2008 at 3:45 PM. The Catholic chapel had subdued lighting, so I used the flash to take indoor photographs. However, sunlight appears to be shining through the stained glass window, creating beautiful rainbow colors! The rays of light appear to be flowing towards the ceiling. I cannot explain the phenomenon; however, God seems to work in mysterious ways. God sends signs and wonders when we least expect it.
(Make Note: After this photograph was taken, I shared the image directly as captured on the camera's digital memory card with my spiritual advisor, Father Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ. The original digital image was transferred onto a CD for church archives.)
Remarkably, the stained glass window is a representation of the Miracle of the Sun which was witnessed by 70,000 people on October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal. In addition, NJ.com reported that on September 8, 2007, visitors to the National Blue Army Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Washington, (Warren County), New Jersey, USA, witnessed the Miracle of the Sun and saw Jesus and Mary in the sky during the solar phenomenon.

In John 1:5, the following is noted: "Now this is the message that we have heard from him and proclaim to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all."
In Psalm 150:1-2, the following is proclaimed: "Praise God in his Holy sanctuary; give praise in the mighty dome of heaven. Give praise for his mighty deeds, praise him for his great majesty."
Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)
