Holy, Holy, Holy Eucharist

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

It seems that 'simple as possible' is no longer possible, no longer enough. Maybe that is why true active, belief in the One True God is waning, God who is described by the great St. Bonaventure as pure simplicity.***

Albert Einstein once built his substantial legacy upon a simple intellectual construct: 
"Everything should be made
as simple as possible,
but not simpler."
e.g. E=mc2

The simple truth concerning the Real Presence: the Eucharist, has been co-opted by the secularists, just the same as the key terms: love, soul, and peace.  They already hijacked the feasts of Christmas, Easter, All Hallows Eve. Even the word Catholic has been effectively rendered non-descriptive/non-binding  (Thanks to all the vocal defectors still within her ranks.) 

Has this attack on the Word been deliberate?

Simply put, it sure looks like it.

In this moment of mass confusion, it may be time for a univeral decree renaming who we are and what we believe.  Then again, the moment may have already passed. Vatican II might have been an appropriate moment, before the cultural deconstructionism of the 60's-70's and the moral relativism of the post-modern era. 

I'm not talking about redefining, but only renaming so that the average inquiring heart and mind is able to appreciate exactly what a true ____________ Catholic is, and what he/she must believe.

So maybe Holy, Holy, Holy Eucharist is where we need to go. 

Three times holy it is for the Holy, Holy, Holy Trinity.

Holy, Holy, Holy Mass is where we gather to worship.

Holy, Holy, Holy Spirit is the Lord and Giver of Life. 

We sinners are far from holy but our faith certainly is.

It is truly Holy, Holy, Holy.

So welcome to the
Holy, Holy Holy Catholic Church.

Or to make it as simple as possible:


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

***The Doctrine of Divine Simplicity
From the necessity of Being Itself, St. Bonaventure derives the essential attributes of God:
  • God is the first, most-pure Being
  • God is absolutely lacking in non-being, and is therefore eternal
  • God has no composition, and is therefore simple
  • God has no defect, and is therefore perfect
  • God has no diversity, and therefore is one.
