Why we must take back the rainbow for sacred use...

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

Fra. Lippi's Coronation of the Virgin
(Please double-click the image to study the detail) 

 The Franciscan Renaissance painters and poets got it right.  They were so much in love with "Lady Poverty" that they were gifted by the Holy Spirit to create works of universal beauty so that Catholic churches manifested the grace of heaven. In this Duomo of Spoleto painting notice the colors of God the Father's (Abba's) robes....R-G-B

The Spoleto Cathedral.  Notice how brilliantly white white is.

We would to well to recover the RAINBOW from the ranks of those who dishonor its symbolic/covenantial meaning relative to Creation and Revelation.

A step in this direction is to rediscover RED-GREEN-BLUE

One manifests as three in the Mystery of the Triune God

From this three-ness comes all that is Real (True), Good, and Beautiful


That's a God that loves multiplication!

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio

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
