God with Us at the Supernatural Speed of Light

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


The Early Church Fathers gave us the Nicene Creed that provides inspired dogmatic words describing the Triune God.  Among these we Catholics believe that:  
Jesus Christ is ... "Light from Light"
The Holy Spirit is ... "Lord and Giver of Life"


Today's scientist appreciates that "mass" refers to what was previously known as "rest mass." i.e., each real particle of matter has its own particular mass that can only be measured if the relativistic effects of velocity = 0.

They also know that pure energy exists as a photon (gamma ray), with a rest mass that must be zero. By definition, a photon is mass-less, for it is matter-less. It can reach its incredible speed precisely because of its mysterious nature. Its speed remains a profound mystery. A mystery of light, for it has energy solely by virtue of its momentum.


OT The Holy Spirit is both the Pillar of Fire [LIGHT] and the Pillar of Cloud [LIGHT].

He descends from Heaven and hovers above the Tabernacle. He overshadows the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies.

NT God the Father is the "Father of Lights." Jesus is the "Light of the World"

The Holy Spirit acts as the Guiding Light (Star of Bethlehem?) attracted to the pure holiness and humility of Mary of Nazareth.

He descends from Heaven and overshadows the Blessed Mother, the New Ark of the Covenant at the Annuncation/Incarnation.

1. This overshadowing of the Divine Spouse of the Virgin Mary is the timeless moment of Emmanuel. (See momentum above)

2. This overshadowing is the Epiclesis upon the altar at Holy Mass. Jesus' Words of Consecration activate the transformation and the Holy Spirit gifts supernatural life to the elements (at rest) converting the bread and wine into the glorified Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

This happens outside of time, in eternity.

DC Comics' Superman may fly
"faster than a speeding bullet."

Jesus (the Real Super-Man)
is made Really Present at Holy Mass
faster than the speed of light
at the infinite speed of eternity

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!

Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
