"Truly, Really, Substantially" ALIVE

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*
LIVE shot:  Eucharistic Adoration from

In 1551 the Council of Trent left no wiggle room. Sent reeling from the chaos of the so-called Protestant Reformation, the assembled Church Fathers defined the Holy Eucharist as "truly, really, substantially" Jesus Christ present in His body, blood, soul and divinity.

God lives as the Eucharist (Yes, He is alive!) just as He lives in eternity, in heaven.

Was it the Holy Spirit that guided and inspired this bedrock understanding?

Or was it the evil spirit?

Could there be a third option?

I don't think so, for it is too profound: either the Holy Eucharist is God alive or it is among the greatest of lies.

Pray about it!

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
