Could it really be that simple?

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

Artist's interpretation of the painting: At the Last Supper Jesus gave to his Church the sacred rite of the Eucharist, through which his once-for-all sacrifice on Calvary could be re-presented and offered for sinners through all ages to come. 'It is by God's will that we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all' (Heb 10:10).

The absolute power of Holy Eucharist is so beyond human awareness that we neglect to see how IN JESUS we might still all be saved.

Ponder this what if:

What if every human being agreed to let down their guard, suspend judgment, and give their fiat to humble reception of the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—just once?

Do you think maybe that is the end condition that Our Lord is seeking in Matthew 28?

Do you think maybe that is when He will return in glory?

Could it really be that simple?

Just maybe...

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio, SOLT

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

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

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael

HI Mike. thanks for visiting my blog "A Catholic Jew Pontificates". I love the colour on your blog and the emphasis on the Eucharist. I spent many years promoting Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration and I still do on occassion with priest friends of mine. Let that fire that is within you blaze again in the world.
