Ultimate Mass Movement (and a timeless moment)

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

It gave me pause to ponder, once again, what seems to be the situation at this late hour for humanity.

In the past I have been critical of many Jesuit "gifts" to the modern world and yet I realize that bestowing good gifts is still part of their Order's calling from Almighty God. When Jesuits are steadfast in their support for what Holy Mother Church officially teaches they speak with full authority and truth.

Father Jean-Marc Laporte S.J. reveals truth when he writes that "spiritual energy" has as its source Christ present in the Holy Eucharist.  He adds,"The energy of the Eucharist builds a community made up of strong individuals." However, he fails to see the full import of his own words when he adds: "The energy of the Eucharist is already at work in our world, even if we do not perceive it clearly."

Since God is by definition Creator of all that is created, He is the first cause of all temporal energy and all matter. Given this fact, is it any wonder that E=mc2 relates in a foundational way to the Holy Eucharist. 

If one makes the following valid physical (created)-to-spiritual (uncreated) substitutions:
1. energy -> Spiritual Energy -> Eucharist -> Emmanuel
    (God is with us)
2. mass(rest) -> Holy Mass -> Eternal Mass in heaven
    (The Marriage Supper of the Lamb)
3. speed of light -> Mystery of Light at the double consecration (c x c) ->
    God from God, Light from Light
    (The Lamb and the Lamp, the Light of the Heavenly Jerusalem)

...the formula holds true for both orders.
It is hard to deny this powerful correspondence, and if one considers the Eastern Church and how her Divine Liturgy (our Holy Mass) is the source of Divine Action, energeia (our Eucharist) it is even more compelling.
Both Fr. Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. and Albert Einstein were flirting with these truths in the last chapter of their enigmatic lives.
Now more than half a century later we are still unable to bring the full impact of this ultimate truth to LIGHT.
This is really sad, especially when CERN touts the apparent discovery of their so-called “god particle,” the Higgs Boson.

So I ask:
Have you ever pondered the consequences
of the ultimate Mass Movement
(and timeless moment)?

What if all baptised Catholics worthily received the glorious Holy Eucharist one time in a heartfelt effort to witness perfect communion of the Mystical Body of Christ here on earth? Would we be almost forcing God’s hand to bring about the Second Coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ?  Think about what Jesus prayed for in John 17:22-23
And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them; that they may be one, as we also are one: I in them, and thou in me; that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.
What power we have at our command!  And what a challenge it is to make this known to a world that pridefully refuses to hear the Gospel message of the Way, the Truth and the Life. 

Father Jean-Marc Laporte S.J. gets the last word, which he passes to the Saviour of the World..
The final word is that of Jesus. The peaceful energy of his love will absorb and transform the evil that surrounds us, and bring us into a place of fulfillment and communion with God and with one another.
Amen Father!

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary

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