Crossing Dangerous Waters Behind Enemy Lines

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*


My reversion to the Catholic Church actually 
began 15 years before the life-changing 
events of April 16, 1998.

When I heard the 'little voice' tell me, "Go to the place where you were most spiritual" I was obliged to survey my life (all of of 38 years) in order to pinpoint that exact moment and that exact location.  It took no more than an hour.

Ranger School, 1982....Ft. Benning, GA (City), Dahlonega, GA (Mountains), Eglin AFB, FL (Swamp)

Two other seeds had already been planted in me in the weeks leading up to this Oct '97 day:

SALVATION
SERVICE
were in place...waiting

This was the spot where 
the third seed, SPIRITUALITY
was to germinate...


30.408614, -86.683201

After a botched midnight raid and a jammed M60...
I was praying the Hail Mary over and over again...
and the Zodiac boat returned safely to shore.

I don't know how, because a strong
northerly wind was dead against us.
We were paddling and getting nowhere.

I remember focusing on the distant lights
(in Mary Esther)
and suddenly being ashore.


Was I thinking about that famous scene
in the WWII war movie, A Bridge Too Far
as we crossed this 1/2 mile stretch?

YUP!

Just yesterday I just found out
that I have a new hero
and his name isn't
Ryan O'Neil
(although his portrayal
iscommendable)
:


Major Julian A. Cook, 
Commander, 3d Bn, 504th Parachute Inf Regt, 
who led his battalion with unparalleled bravery
in the initial assault wave during the daring daylight
crossing of the Waal River.

This devout Catholic really did
pray the Hail Mary
all the way
to shore.



Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Now we have seen the false light

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

I am not a prophet, I am a soldier.  I saw this coming in 2007. 
We needed to mass on the Mall in Washington D.C. 
 and have Mass witness of the Truth  
to keep this moment from happening.

He got in office...
Now he has completed the Transfiguration
of the White House  

 This picture is in full rainbow color but I refuse to circulate
the shock and awe of the moment.




"Today we can say, in no uncertain terms, that we've made our union a little more perfect," President Barack Obama said outside the White House just after the ruling, which he hailed as a "victory for America" and as "justice that arrives like a thunderbolt."

I kinda think this -president- just may see
True Justice come like he said,
LIKE A THUNDERBOLT.

God help us!

Come Lord Jesus!

Our Lady of the Cenacle

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*


Pentecost has come and gone.

Now we are in Ordinary (Green) Time 
and we can ponder some of the Truths
of our faith that largely go unnoticed.  

The Holy Spirit
and the Blessed Virgin Mary
espoused at the Annunciation,
espoused at the birth of the Church,
espoused for all eternity.
 
Mary Matters!
Protestants must take heed. 
 
Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,
