"A Formula of Life" How True, How True!!!

J.M.J. + O.B.T.

On March 13, 2005 from what was to be his death bed in Rome's Gemelli Hospital Pope John Paul II wrote a farewell of sorts to his priests. He exorted them to open their hearts and minds and consider the consecration of the Eucharist in Holy Mass as a formula of life:

So for us, the words of institution
must be more than a formula of consecration:
they must be a "formula of life".

JPII motivates his brothers in Christ
to a deeper understanding
of the Eucharist (thanksgiving) with the question,

"How could this thanksgiving of Jesus fail to shape
the life of a priest? He knows that he must cultivate
a constant sense of gratitude for the many gifts
he has received in the course of his life..."

He goes on to describe Christ's self-giving:
"which has its origin in the Trinitarian life of the God
who is Love, reaches its culmination
in the
sacrifice of the Cross,
sacramentally anticipated
in the Last Supper."

Then he relates,

"It is impossible to repeat the words of consecration
without feeling oneself caught up in this spiritual movement."


clearly shows that Spiritual Energy,
the Holy Eucharist (E) owes its being (=)
at Mass (m) to the mystery of transubstantiation,
spiritual movement of the LIGHT of God,
the Holy Spirit, a constant True LIGHT from LIGHT (c)
that must occur two distinct times,
once with each consecration (c x c),

"This in my body"

"This is my blood."

2005 was BOTH the Year of the Eucharist (Miracle of the Real Presence) AND the International Year of Physics celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Albert Einstein's E=mc2 (His Miracle Year).

YES, there is no such thing as mere coincidence...

Like my seven year old son, John Michael says about things Catholic,

"It all comes together!"

When the word finally gets out and dialogue truly begins, I believe this truth about how God created all things, this BRIDGING TRUTH in Christ, will be the catalyst for a revolution of thought that will open the mankind's scaled over eyes to an understanding of our Catholic faith, a light that will spur hearts to conversion to the Fullness of Truth. It will defeat the relativism of this age by compelling all to relate to the absolute truth of Christ's Sacrifice on Calvary.

All light, all holiness comes from Him...
He who is all powerful...think about it.

LIGHT, LIFE, LOVE...those three haloed words


Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ!
See you on the High Ground!
