Jesus is The Light of the World
(Bold text, gold highlighting
and [[[My Comment]]]) are my additions)
[[[This is precisely what happens in Catholic Liturgy with the ultimate Prayer in the ultimate Holy Place—the Priest's Eucharistic Prayer and Christ's Words of Institution at the altar in Holy Mass]]]
Jesus turned to prayer to seek guidance from the Father and we should do likewise. It is critical that we get our guidance in the Holy Place. The following passage is a good example of Jesus getting His direction from the Father through prayer:
Enter into the Holy Place in your Prayer Life
Seek God for Direction
Be a Light to Others
Expect Miracles to Follow the Truth from God
Speak the truth of your enlightenment to others and expect the power of God to support your action with His miraculous power through the Holy Spirit. Step out in faith, do what He puts in your heart and expect Him to do what you cannot:
It all sounds right and true as far as it goes.
The Pilot Light of the Seven Sacraments
"For the God who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness,"
is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the light
of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ." 2 Cor 4:6
Energeia = Massday of rest ("This is my Body" x "This is my Blood")
If the Consecration of the Bread and Wine
does not involve Holy Light x Holy Light,
then how do you explain the transformation?
The Eastern Orthodox provide this insight
from the Divine Liturgy (akin to our Mass):
So, if natural light transforms chemicals to plant food
and life-giving oxygen via photosynthesis,
what do you think God's own blessing
of Supernatural Light can accomplish?
Confect the Holy Eucharist!
The Holy Spirit alone has the power
for He is the Glory Cloud.
And lest we forget the image of Our Lord
and Savior during this time of great mercy:
I see two distinct rays of light flowing out
from the Sacred Heart (Eucharistic Heart)
of the Glorious Person of the Risen Jesus Christ.
Is Jesus trying to tell us someting about
Light x Light?
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
