Pete Starr Medjugorje update 4 and our 12k Prayer hike – Unexpected Survivor.

Pete Starr Medjugorje update 4 and our 12k Prayer hike – Unexpected Survivor.

It seemed Pete Starr from Medjugorje and I were on the same wave length as Pete was voluntarily offering up his pain by walking barefoot on every conceivable hill in Medjugorje for Lelia and Ruthie and those on our prayer list. This was around the same time I was also hiking and offering up my pain many thousands of miles away for those on our prayer list but my pain was involuntary. My son told me that I have to man up in order to catch Pete as he saw his suffering superior to mine and I had to reluctantly agree…

While atop Cross Mountain before sunrise, Pete prayed a decade of the Rosary for Lelia and all those on the prayer request list including several other decades for Ruthie Wellhausen and his wife Sheila’s prayer intensions… I love it when an atheist prayers the Rosary as I know it garners much attention in Heaven!

After receiving the good news from Pete learning that our prayer list had been prayed over by Father Leon and the visionary Mirjana, (and later finding out that Father Max and Vicka also prayed for all on our prayer list) we decided to celebrate by going on a special prayer hike that evening just as Pete was also offering up his prayers on a special mountain. Our location was quite different high in the rocky mountains at a place I have shown you pictures before, but this time, an early fall storm had laid fresh snow with bitter temperatures that had completely killed all the remaining vegetation up in the harsh alpine above 10k – or at least I thought.

God always talks most clearly to me while in nature and this time was no exception. It was all about bitter cold and howling wind but absolutely beautiful fresh snow and clouds perfect for a sunset.

While hiking, I came across a small group of wildflowers that were partially covered in snow. Everything else around me was completely wiped out. Just as the snow helped to insulate and protect these courageous last survivors, God also covers us with His divine protection when we pray!

These poor wildflowers were beat up from the harsh conditions but they had survived… Just as we are not immune to suffering but God will get us through it….

As I was praying I kept thinking about Lelia and how courageous this young girl is… Her belief in God and His power to heal her and her wonderful attitude in the midst of suffering – “Dada, it’s time to party,” she exclaimed after coming home from her surgery…. Amazing young girl…

As I was trying to capture a picture of the surviving wildflowers and sunset, my fingers became so numb from the bitter cold that I couldn’t feel the shutter button to snap the picture off. Paralyzed hands, arms and fingers is not a good thing especially in this type of situation. After managing to get a few pictures and prayers in I climbed higher up the ridge to get a better perspective on the alpine lake below. For some reason my body stopped aching and I felt better. Although my fingers were still numb I was still able to function, holding onto the our prayer request list and pictures of Mary and Lelia all while working my camera gear. The sunset was amazing! I could really feel God’s presence… Let’s just say that I receive an apparition every time I get to witness His beautiful creation! And every time, God speaks to me through his beauty…

As I was hiking back in the bitter temperatures in near darkness I felt totally fine. When I made it back to my car, my son who is visiting from California was already waiting for me with the heater blasting… As soon as I got inside, one of the worse sensations of pain I have ever experienced overcame me… My fingers and upper body had become a lot colder than I thought and started to thaw out in the most excruciating painful way imaginable. It keep getting worse, to the point that I couldn’t take it any longer so I bailed out of the car and started running around shaking my arms and hands which only made it worse.

It was embarrassing to say the least to act like such a baby in front of my son who was watching with a look of shock in his eyes. The pain started to radiate into my chest like a millionneedles piercing my heart… My whole body ached more than it has every ached before… I cried out to Jesus to please take my suffering to help Lelia and all those on our pray list who are going through far more and who’s situation dwarfed my little problem… The pain brought me to my knees as a sat there flopping around on the ground wondering how long it would last. This went on for around 10 minutes before it finally subsided enough to where I could get myself together again…

Like with many of you, this has happened before, especially when I was a kid playing out in the snow but never have I experienced so much pain throughout my entire body… I must have looked like a fool but like with Pete stubbing his toe, I hope God took some of our pain to help those around me/us who need all the help they can get…

It was so nice to hear that Pete also had Father Max pray for Ruthie and Lelia and all those on our prayer request list – what a blessing! I also added Holly from the “Apparition Hill” movie to our prayer list.

Pete placing our prayer list in Vicka’s prayer request box to be prayed over by her was another wonderful bonus! This was greatly appreciated by all I’m sure!

See day 25 and 26 of Pete’s blog for details –

God bless you Pete for all you have done for everyone, especially those who are suffering right now and a special thanks to your hidden prayer warrior (wife) Sheila who we join in prayer for your conversion… The Love of an atheist is clearly showing through right now!

Be of good courage and faith in your suffering and immerse yourself in our Lord Jesus to help ease your pain as He is eager to come into our hearts to love and comfort us in our time of need through the powerful intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary.

God bless everyone!








Pete Starr (from the documentary “Apparition Hill”) Medjugorje, Prayer List, and Lelia Moran


Medjugorje update – Pete Starr (from the movie “Apparition Hill”) in Medjugorje with our Prayer request list being prayed over by Mirjana and Father Leon… And Update on Lelia Moran.

Updated – First I’ll start with the more serious news. As many of you know from my last post, Lelia has suffered another setback. The doctor’s just found another tumor growing in her brain. The doctors now say nothing can be done to cure Lelia. This precious angel who has already gone through more than any human should, must face more treatment and hardship. Please intensify your prayers for Lelia and her family and pray that our mighty God the Master Physician will heal her!

In a more positive light in all the darkness surrounding this tough situation, the following statement from Lelia’s father was shared with me which instantly made me cry with tears of joy:

From Lelia’s father: “Lelia’s recovery from surgery has been swift. We were moved from the PICU to the main pediatric floor to home in less than 24 hours. We came home yesterday afternoon. On the ride home I looked at her in the rearview-mirror, she lifted her Snuffleupagus eyelids and said, “Dada, its time to party”.

Our Pray request list has many such cases and it is now more important than ever to pray for all of them in any way we can. I have once again called up the Missionaries of Charity (the big guns) to pray for Lelia and others here. They are busy praying everyday! We also have Pete Starr working on our prayer list in Medjugorje. In order to see how this is going it would be best to read his blog direct… All pictures from Medjugorje taken by Pete Starr.

I really appreciate Pete for having everyone on our prayer request list prayed over by Father Leon and the visionary Mirjana who both have powerful prayers for all with special emphasis on Lelia! God Bless you Pete!

Picture of mountain below taken while on our prayer hike for everyone on the prayer request list with special emphasis on Lelia Moran to be healed from brain cancer….


Pray for Lelia Moran for a Successful Surgery and Beyond!

Please pray for Rebecca Morton Moran and her daughter Lelia and the rest of her family. They are really suffering right now on the eve of Lelia’s surgery tomorrow morning. The outlook from the doctors doesn’t look too positive. We need God to restore Lelia to full health. Our prayers are powerful because our creator God is powerful. I went to
cross tonight on our prayer hike and placed Lelia at the foot of the cross with Mary as protector of the sick and our Lord Jesus who has no bounds to heal and make her well… Please pray right now and continue to pray until Lelia is well! God bless you all!





Mary, Medjugorje, Earthquakes, and Hurricanes

Magnitude 3.6 earthquake near Westwood jolts parts of L.A. – LA Times

At Least 147 Dead After 7.1-Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Mexico – Time

Hurricane Maria is a Dangerous Category 5 Closing in on a Potentially Catastrophic Strike on Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands – Weather Channel

Last evening around 9:00 p.m. MST I called a friend who has been to Medjugorje seven times. Through her many experiences there, she has developed a wonderful relationship with Our Blessed Mother Mary. During our conversation we talked about Medjugorje and how it has impacted our lives and then she suddenly changed the subject and warned me of a pending major earthquake that would soon hit LA. She didn’t stop there. She told me to call my son who lives near Hollywood, CA and tell him to fill his car full of gas and stock up on water and non-perishable food and come up with an escape plan just in case.

Well, two hours later, before I had time to call my son, a 3.7 earthquake hit LA with the epicenter only a few miles from his apartment. I was unaware of this first thing this morning until I heard the news and called him immediately. He claimed the ceiling vibrated and the floor of his apartment shook pretty hard at around 11:30 p.m. last night, California time. He was about to jump off his balcony out into the street when it suddenly stopped.

Wow, I thought! Was this just a coincidence or was there something to this woman’s words of warning only a few hours before it occurred?
I believe our Lord was involved as this lady has a deep devotion to Our Lady and Jesus! She claimed it would be big one but maybe this was just a warning for a larger one to come….

I pleaded with my son to stock up on some bottled water and non-perishables and to keep his gas tank full. I hope and pray he listens…

No need to live in fear but nothing is wrong with being prepared….

Being prepared spiritually is most important right now as disaster is all around us.

Take care and God Bless!…/la-me-ln-westwood-earthquake-20170……/hurricane-maria-category-5-leeward-is…


Final day of Consecration to Jesus through Mary and Heavenly encounter on day 34…

 For video click here – Video

Yesterday, September 15, 2017 marked the end of my 33 day Consecration to Jesus through Mary authored by Saint Louis-Marie De Montfort. Congratulations to all others who also finishing this wonderful consecration! The next consecration starts on October 19th. If you haven’t already please consider doing this as it will change you life for the better!

Day 34, the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows was the official day of Consecration.

I awoke early excited to go to Mass to celebrate and to read the required prayer in front of the Tabernacle. I looked out my window and noticed some beautiful color developing in the clouds as the sun was about to rise. I couldn’t resist and ran out side have dressed with camera in hand and started snapping pictures.

Then suddenly a beautiful golden light started tracking from left to right across the lower horizon. It was angelic, heavenly, beautiful, mysterious and wonderful…. I got so caught up watching it, I forgot to take more pictures. I should have captured it on video as it would have been simply amazing to witness. I did manage to capture a few heavenly images. It all happened so fast. At first it looked like and image of the Holy Spirit in the form of a flaming golden red cloud… It really stood out as it quickly moved in front of the dark clouds in the background. Then it changed into and an image that almost looked Jesus in the form of the Divine Mercy. Then it changed into an angel like appearance. In a matter of moments, this beautiful heavenly sight was gone. It felt like a gift from our Lord! I set my camera on video to record the end of the sunrise as I ready myself for Mass and thus the time-lapse showing the end of this wonderful sunrise.

This experience reminded me of some of my favorite prayers found in St. Louis De Monfort’s prayer to Mary in the Consecration:

“May the light of the faith dispel the darkness of my mind… May the continuous sight of God fill my Memory with His presence; May the burning love of thy (Mary’s) heart inflame the Luke warmness of mine….”

Mass was wonderful as Father talked about how much compassion Mary has for all of us and how we should follow her example in helping others in their time of need. After everyone was left I sat in the empty church in front the statues of Mary and Joseph with Mary holding precious baby Jesus in her loving arms. I lit three candles, one for my family’s intentions, another for all of you and those on my prayer list and one for Lelia Moran (@Rebecca Morton Moran) that her surgery will go well with the best possible outcome this coming Wednesday. I then prayed the final prayer of the consecration which was wonderful.

Later that evening, our prayer hike began just like the morning with a beautiful sunset which started out with a beautiful golden light and then transitioned into a fiery red mixed with dark clouds providing a beautiful contrast. It keep going and going… I mounted my camera to a tripod and filmed the sunset while we prayed… It was a beautiful day and evening which filled my heart with hope, joy and faith!

Everything is going to be ok no matter how difficult our situation – God has everything under control! God bless you and yours!

Update for Lelia and Patrick G

Update for Lelia and Patrick G

Lelia’s mom Rebecca recently let me know that Lelia’s surgery is next Wednesday, September 20th, at 6 am. Rebecca wanted us to know that her family appreciates our commitment to her daughter. They are praying that the spot on Lelia brain is just radiation changes.

We are all helping their family carry this brutally painful cross through our prayers and love for Lelia, just as Simon of Cyrene did for Jesus when Our Lord could not go on any further at Calvary because of His great suffering and pain and His shedding of blood for our sins….

Please remember to mark your calendars and pray that all will be well and perfect for Lelia and her family…

Yesterday I received word from our friend Kate Convery to pray for a young lad named Patrick G who was involved in a serious car accident. At the time Patrick was not responsive in critical care. Today, Patrick seems to be doing a little better and is now conscious.
Kate Convery sent me an updated message as follows:
“I recieved a message from his sister to say they took the pipe out of the ventilator last night and he is breathing on his own but the nurse is beside him 🙏🙏 he is recovering slowly with good sign thank you so much for yours prayers god bless you and our lady look over and protect you Amen!”

Praise you Jesus! Patrick has received many prayers and God is answering them!

I’ve also read that Patrick may need surgery so our prayers are still greatly needed!

I went up last night again to the high mountains to Pray for all on the prayer list with special emphasis on Lelia and Patrick. 
I really felt God’s presence through his beautiful creation surrounding me. It was at beautiful alpine meadow with a small stream running through it. I could feel God’s great love coming through for those who are suffering. I will continue to keep praying to our Most High God with the help of all your prayers and through the intercession of Our Lady to her Son Jesus… God Bless!

My gift of God’s Beautiful Creation to all those suffering right now…

My gift to all of you to help combat suffering and disasters of all kinds with high Mountains and Prayer! We can do this because we have an awesome Creator God who can do anything!

Update from Rebecca Morton Moran –

“We found out Lelia does have to have brain surgery to resect the unknown spot in her brain. We do not know the exact date yet. Please pray it is benign. It is well known that a relapse in medulloblastoma is almost universally fatal. My heart Is so fearful. I can’t lose my baby. Please pray!”

Dear Rebecca, You have every right as the loving Mom of Lelia to be fearful of this serious development in her battle with cancer. But we want you and your family to know that you are not alone in this trial… We are all with you and yours in fervent Prayer to the Most High God who created precious Lelia and who has everything under control…

Medulloblastoma is no match for God’s healing power if that is His will for Lelia. Today at Mass the Gospel reading regarding community prayer is powerful: Matthew 18:19, “Again, [amen,] I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father.” 
Hold onto this promise Rebecca and all others here and believe! God’s will be done! I can assure you that we will not give up in this battle for Lelia. Today, Lelia lives and breaths hope for all of us. Her strong faith has already changed many lives for the better. Her courage rivals that of saints who have gone before her. Her loving angelic glow and presence is an inspiration to us all! It is no accident that we are all together in prayer for your daughter Lelia. God is never taken by surprise and always has a plan and purpose for each one of us, especially the little ones such as your precious Lelia.

Yesterday evening, I climbed to the top of a 13k peak. I wanted to get as high as I could to offer my prayers up to our Lord. I also wanted to bring all those who are struggling right now along with me in spirit and prayer to allow them to get high above all their problems long enough to see the incredible beauty and awesome power of our Creator God.

The recent hurricanes, earthquake, wildfires, and health related trials are rampant right now. These times require extra prayer and dedication to our Lord. It is times like these that God intervenes the most and is why prayer is so important.

As I sat there on top of the world, on the edge of a 1,000 ft. cliff, the wind was howling with darkness setting in as I prayed fervently for all those who are suffering right now in our world. I kept thinking about the hurricane bearing down on Florida and how it relates to the cancer in Lelia’s and so many other lives. Like the hurricane, cancer and other illnesses are unpredictable and can cause much damage.

Eventually though, the storm will pass and the broken pieces will be restored as the communities come together in a way not seen in any other circumstance.

THE STORM WILL PASS and it is our heartfelt prayer that Lelia and all those suffering right now will be restored back to perfect health and will live life to the fullest once again as this is God’s loving will for us…

Through your powerful intercession to your Son Jesus, we ask you Mother Mary to pray for Lelia and all those who are in harms way right now. Please dear Jesus, heal them all and provide joy, good health in both body and mind, and lasting Peace in their hearts. Amen!

Precious Blood of Jesus



A sign of Hope for the unborn and for us!

A while back, I was sent a beautiful picture from a volunteer from LifeGuard, a pro-life organization that I volunteer with. During the Friday Mass at their private chapel, the Priest was wiping off the Chalice containing the Blood of Christ when he noticed that the leftover consecrated wine had stained his cloth in the shape of a preborn baby. He instantly recognized the shape and informed everyone present after Mass.

I too had no problem seeing the resemblance of a precious preborn baby and feel certain that it was a sign from Jesus that He was pleased with their work protecting the unborn…

I was especially drawn to it because it happened close to when the Southwest Catholic Youth Conference – ( that LifeGuard hosts annually with nearly 1,000 kids in attendance. I help out with this event taking care of all the photography so this meant a lot to me personally and helped provide some needed inspiration for our ministry for the unborn and for our youth.

Today, many of us are tightening our seat belts as the turbulence of suffering is on the rise. Everywhere we look, turmoil is breaking out especially for those who have loved ones suffering from illness and those who have become homeless due the recent string of hurricanes and wildfires that seem to be out of control lately here in the US and abroad….

That is why we need to remain focused on the One who is in control of all of this.

GOD IS IN CONTROL! Can anyone give me an Amen!

The only way to stay focused is for us to remain in constant prayer. Our Lady of Medjugorje recently told us through her messages that times will come where everything will fall apart around us such as our material possessions, money and other worldly items, leaving only our Faith and family to sustain us! I think many are already there.


God is truly with us and will help us no matter how desperate our situation appears even to the point where the impossible becomes possible! God is always close to those who are in harms way and I think the picture of the unborn baby is a reminder of this.

I am praying hard for all of you, especially those who have requested prayer. Not a day goes by where you all are not in my prayers and I thank you for your prayers.

It is no accident that we have all joined together in prayer which is another example of how Our Lord Jesus is with us! I hope this picture of the unborn baby can provide you with hope that is much needed today.

God Bless and may His divine protection and love be with all of you!

Important Update from  Concerning precious Lelia Moran

 Important Update from Rebecca Morton Moran Concerning precious Lelia Moran

Rebecca’s reply to me this morning:

Begin: “Thank you for your prayers. We found out yesterday that no cancer cells showed up in her spinal fluid. However, there are still multiple white spots on her brain and the doctors are not sure if they are cancer. She had a clear scan in April but these spots are new…
Please pray that they come back as post radiation/chemo changes and not cancer.
She is also on dialysis three times a week because the chemotherapy damaged her kidneys. We are hopeful that her kidneys will start working again.
Thank you for all of your prayers. Our family is desperate for a miracle.” End

Praise Jesus that there were no cancer cells that showed up in Lelia’s spinal fluid! We pray dear Jesus that the white spots are from the chemo, not cancer. We also pray dear Heavenly Father that Lelia’s kidneys will start to function normally again through the powerful intercession of Mary to her Son Jesus we pray! Amen.


“Therefore, you children, my apostles of my love, you who suffer, know that your pain will become light and glory.”

THE BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN LIGHT AND GLORY I WITNESSED IN THE SUNSET LAST NIGH REALLY DRIVES THIS HOME…. AND THEN THE REMINDER FROM @Nicky DeAngelo – “I’ve been getting posts for awareness of childhood cancer. The color ribbon is also gold like your sunset. There are no coincidences !” AMEN!!


I would like to share what happened last night on our journey up to our prayer hike in the Rocky mountains. It was most unusual as we were praying for Lelia while driving up the steep canyon. Along the way we ran into two different sets of double rainbows (the first time this has every happened to me). The Rainbows only appeared for a few seconds and then they were gone, too fast for me to get a shot which was unusual. The evening was capped off with a beautiful sunset that filled the sky with a golden radiated light that looked like the Heavens had opened up.My camera malfunctioned when shooting this sunset but I was able to salvage one shot with my backup camera. I am certain the sunset was meant for Lelia. The golden rays illuminating the distant peak and rain coming down was Heavenly. I pictured these golden rays wrapping around precious Lelia. It was a special night. During times like that, it usually means that Prayers are being answered. My sister could vouch for that as a beautiful double rainbow appeared while we were praying a decade ago for her during a crisis in her life. This second double Rainbow that I saw last night appeared in almost the exact location as the one my sister and I witnessed.

I will call the Missionaries of Charity again today and provide them with an update for Lelia and we will continue to pray for her. Thank you all for taking the time to pray for Lelia as every prayer matters! God Bless!

A Bear Hug and Prayers for Lelia Moran!

A Bear Hug and Prayers for Lelia Moran

See Facebook post for details –

My soul was completely overtaken yesterday when I found out about precious Lelia who has cancer at such an early age. I offered up a special prayer time last evening and while on my evening prayer hike, God sent me the most adorable bear in my path. I immediately thought that He wanted me to show this big teddy bear to Lelia who is only 4 years old. Her mom informed me that Lelia “emphatically believes that Jesus has healed her.” I feel I had to do something special for Lelia and hopefully this video I made can help encourage and bring a smile to Lelia and her family and others you all share this with. 

This child of God has more faith than many of us put together. I called up the Missionaries of Charity this Morning (the big gun’s) and explained Lelia’s situation to them and asked if they would pray for her. They eagerly accepted my invitation and added Lelia and her family to their ongoing Novena to St. Teresa of Calcutta who was their founder.

I have recently learned that many of you are already praying for Lelia. If you didn’t know about her situation, your prayers would be greatly appreciated. Meanwhile, as the MC’s explained to me, little Lelia is winning over the hearts of people from around the world and is helping many increase their faith by her wonderful example of courage and faith. The MC’s assured me that God will provide a healing for Lelia but we must have as much faith as Lelia. They also assured me that Jesus is talking to Lelia in a special way and has a special plan for Lelia thus her profound faith…

Lelia, we are praying for you and love you very much and offer up our suffering for you! God Bless you and may our Lord Jesus completely heal you physically as you are already healed in the spirit. In the precious name of Jesus and through the intercession of our Beloved Mother Mary – Amen!
