The Hope of Vatican II???

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

From Blessed John XXIII's
Apostolic Constitution, Humanae salutis, 
the solemn convocation of the Second Vatican
Ecumenical Council on 25 December 1961.

It is a question in fact of bringing the perennial life-giving energies of the Gospel to the modern world…

She knows that by giving life to the temporal order by the light of Christ, she is also revealing men to themselves, leading them, that is, to discover in themselves their own nature, their own dignity, their own purpose. This is why the living presence of the Church today extends by right and by fact to international organizations…

…the beneficial influence of the conciliar deliberations, we profoundly hope, must succeed to the point that it imbues with Christian light and penetrates with fervent spiritual energy not only into the depths of souls but also into the whole realm of human activities.

 It may only be in the English translation of the text of this key document but it is highly likely that Pope John approved of the text as stated above.

So what????   Well it seems that the Holy See is stating that spiritual energy be verbalized in the work of the New Evangelization (just as Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have done).

a) SPIRITUAL ENERGY (Gk: energeia)... has it source in God, the Holy Spirit
b) MASS ...has its source in God's Heavenly Marriage Supper of the Lamb (in the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ, God the Son)
c)  CONSTANT CONSECRATING UNAPPROACHABLE LIGHT... has its source in God the Father as outpoured in the Holy Spirit's Light Speed

Putting it all together in a Trinitarian formula:


The spiritual side of the physical:


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
