When our celebrant said:
Let your Spirit come upon these gifts to make them holy, so that they may become for us the body and blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
...How does the Holy Spirit purify and sanctify?
Is it not through supernatural light-fire?
What do the Old Testament Ark of the Covenant, The Feast of Pentecost, and Purgatory have in common?
The day before he suffered
Is it not true that through the power of the Holy Spirit there is now supernatural Life (both divine and glorified human life) where before there was none?
What happens when the power of sunlight strikes a green plant? Why is Vitamin D—so critical for human health and development—absorbed by the body through exposure to sunlight? Why is a burst of light energy the most probable explanation for the image on the Shroud of Turin; an image that records the moment of Christ's Resurrection?
When supper was ended, he took the cup.
Take this all of you and drink from it:
what is he really talking about?
Is this not the ultimate expression of His Love, for he told us "what greater love is there than to lay down one's life for a friend?" (John 15:13)
'Woman, behold, your son!' Then he said to the disciple, 'Behold, your mother!’"
Do this in memory of me.
rising you restored our life.
Lord Jesus, come in glory.
And with this bold proclamation are we not hearing the converse of the process, which is also true.
If you GOOGLE "Light, Life, Love" you will see what I mean.
LIGHT—false enlightenment, neon lights, spotlights
There was a very good reason why Pope John Paul II issued the new Luminous Mysteries which end with the Last Supper, the institution of the Blessed Sacrament, the Holy Eucharist, the quintessential Mystery of Light.
We must give thanks each and every day
for the gift of the Fullness of Truth
of our Catholic Faith.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio, SOLT
